Unveiling Iconic Walks: Where Adventure Meets Conservation

In the realm of adventure travel, where every step leads to a new story and every trail whispers of ancient lands, Iconic Walks emerges as a beacon for those seeking more than just a hike—they seek an experience that enriches and preserves. This new Australian-based walking company, in collaboration with the Jawoyn Association Aboriginal Corporation, is set to redefine guided multi-day hiking, starting with a lineup that spans the globe from the rugged Australian outback to the majestic peaks of Nepal and the pristine landscapes of Canada.

The Jatbula Trail and Beyond

At the heart of Iconic Walks’ inaugural offerings lies the Jatbula Trail in the Northern Territory, a 62-kilometre trek through Nitmiluk National Park. Named after Peter Jatbula, a pivotal figure in securing land rights for the Jawoyn people, this trail winds through landscapes steeped in both natural beauty and Indigenous culture. Iconic Walks, in partnership with the Jawoyn Association, is not only offering guided walks along this historic route but also pioneering eco-lodge accommodations to enhance the visitor experience sustainably.
