36 years old, Back Track Adventures are an industry award winning, adventure travel agency based in Brisbane, Australia.
Founded in 1984, when Jim and Ray, two of our Directors, took a group of 30 trekkers to the Annapurna region of Nepal. What followed Nepal has been a 36-year worldwide love affair for adventure travel.
Our Back Track logo states, “we’re out there”, and we are. We love our status of being experts in unique, off the beaten track experiences, having sent thousands of travellers on adventures to all 7 continents.
In the 90’s we were with the first in the world to send clients to the polar regions – Antarctica and the Arctic when it was mostly scientists and researchers down there. Antarctica is a much more accessible (and affordable!) destination nowadays, and today we have a Polar tour to suit any budget.
In 2002, we were one of a few who pioneered the trekking industry on the Kokoda Track and today send hundreds of Australians on pilgrimages over The Track each season.
For over 30 years in Africa, we have successfully operated Overland Truck Safaris and more recently, self-drive 4WD safaris.
From our base in Victoria Falls, we roam through 10 African countries, having completed 100’s of vigorous tours, transporting 1000’s of adventurers safely and comfortably.
The fun we have in Africa with our Overland Truck and our self-drive, 4WD Beasts has been the inspiration for us to start our Cape York 4WD tours. We have more tours to exotic Australian locations coming soon.
