Our Blue Mountains Standards

Nature Trail has learned important lessons gained from privileged local training with the Outdoor Recreation courses delivered at Wentworth Falls TAFE in the Blue Mountains and in Guiding at TAFE Ultimo College by qualified and experienced instructors/teachers through 2013, 2014, 2015 and 2016.


Our Blue Mountains Standard is derived from these ‘Outdoor Rec‘ courses and others and prescribes that for each tour guest we undertake to deliver the highest standard of tours we can:

  1. Tour Best Practice in planning, resourcing and industry compliance
  2. Relevant Routes Recently Reconnoitered
  3. Assign a professional tour leader with activity-relevant and local knowledge expertise
  4. Proactive tour risk mitigation
  5. Researched interpretative commentary
  6. Appropriate group kit
  7. Guest generous provisioning
  8. Eco-bushwalking standards met
  9. Closely monitor guest safety, welfare and comfort
  10. Exceed guest expectations
  11. Humbly learn from any mistakes and continually improve our tour delivery standards.
