Rustic Pathways actually began its operations in Australia and has been running trips here for 28 years. With offices and bases near both Melbourne and Brisbane, we have a deep and heartfelt attachment to Australia. We offer programs for high school students, as well as Gap Year programs and customised itineraries for private groups and families throughout the year. Our country director and managers have travelled extensively throughout this country and have a deep understanding of its people and environments.
Rustic Pathways has strong community service initiatives in Southeast Queensland. We support rural schools, assist with special-needs learning programs and promote environmental conservation. While many of the service programs offered by Rustic Pathways are located internationally, we recognise the strong need to encourage Aussie kids to become more actively involved within their local communities. We are currently developing new and exciting volunteer projects within Australia.
