About Us and your Take A Walk Guides
John and Lyn
We’re sharing our passion for the outdoors and the environment with you...
John and Lyn are experienced bushwalkers, tour coordinators and group leaders. They have walked extensively in all Australian states and territories, researching information for their 12 Take A Walk, bushwalking guide books, and have also written a wide range of feature stories for outdoor, travel and lifestyle books and magazines including; Lonely Planet, Outdoor Australia and Wild. They have been leading walks for their bushwalking clubs for well over 20 years.
Coordinating and leading groups of walkers to iconic overseas destinations began in 1998 when they took a group of friends to Galapogos Islands and to walk the Inca Trail. They have since led group trips to exotic destinations in Asia, North America, South America, Europe, Africa and Antarctica. Now, they have 14 tailor-made walking destinations they want share with other adventurers.
Wherever possible John and Lyn will accompany a Take A Walk Adventures trip. If not possible they will appoint another Take A Walk leader, so you never have to feel alone.
'Really got to say we enjoyed our trip (Explore Greece 2018) so much. We have been thinking about the great time and the friendships we made. We learnt so much about walking and so much about ourselves and to do this in the company of the many talents and personalities in the team made it all the more better… We are planning our next TAW trip, Cheers, Brett & Bec'

She led our first China adventure in 2015 and has just returned from taking a group of walkers to Patagonia. Vanuatu 2019 is next on her calendar.
'It was indeed a wonderful trip. I think the planning of the route is excellent... volcanoes, Torres del Paine and Fitzroy, with time in between each section for recovery. Never having been to South America before, I found all the scenery drop-dead gorgeous. Fiona looked after us extremely well and I would be delighted to do another trip with her some time...Thanks for an unforgettable experience,' Meg, Highlights of Chile and Argentina 2018 .
