Accessibility

At The Hike Collective, we believe that the great outdoors should be accessible to everyone. Making our hiking tours inclusive isn’t just a goal; it’s our passion. By ensuring our tours are accessible to all, regardless of physical abilities, we’re opening up a world of adventure and connection.

This commitment to accessibility sets us apart, showcasing our dedication to inclusivity, community, and exceptional customer experiences.

Creating accessible hiking tours means more than just accommodating physical needs; it’s about breaking down barriers and making nature’s beauty available to everyone. Our inclusive approach allows all adventurers to experience the joy and serenity that come with exploring the great outdoors.

We tailor our tours to ensure that every guest, regardless of their abilities, can enjoy the journey safely and comfortably. Our inclusive spirit not only enhances the quality of our tours but also strengthens our reputation as a leader in the hiking community. We pride ourselves on our ability to provide exceptional, personalised experiences that cater to the unique needs of each guest.

Before your tour

FOOD ALLERGIES AND DIETARY REQUIREMENTS

Some of our tours include food and beverages.  We can accommodate most food allergies and dietary requirements; however, there is no guarantee that we will be able to accommodate all. We ask that you please let us know at least 48 hours in advance of your booked tour so that our partnering suppliers can accommodate any food allergies or dietary requirements. It is the guest’s responsibility to let The Hike Collective know if you have any food allergies or dietary requirements.

Getting There

The Hike Collective tours are mostly self-drive, and do not include transfer. All of our tours are accessible within an hours drive of Perth CBD. All tickets come with a map or drive directions to ensure you can easily find the start point. Where public transport is an option, we also provide this information. Although some access roads are gravel, all tours are accessible with a small vehicle and no 4X4 vehicles are required.

Our Rottnest Island Tours are accessible via ferry or air. Tickets can be added to your booking, or you can organise transport yourself and meet us on island.

Arrival

All parking and carpark information is sent with your tickets, and all tours have car park accessibility.

Facilities

All tours have access to public toilets, and this information is sent to you with your tickets.  In rare circumstances, the toilets are located towards the middle of the tour, rather than at the start, but we will let you know if this is relevant on your specific tour.  Leave No Trace principles apply on all hikes where there is limited access to toilets.

Guest Care and Support

GUIDE DOGS

Guests with a disability may be accompanied by a certified assistance or guide dog to assist them on our guided hikes. The WA National Parks and Wildlife Service requests that our guests (or another guest on behalf of the guest with the disability) always keep their assistance dog under effective control and remove any faeces deposited by the dog. Owners are liable for any property damage caused by an assistance dog.

CARER’S CARD

The Hike Collective offer a free tickets to holders of the Carer and Companion Cards when joining their companion on any booked guided walk or hike. There may be costs associated on certain tours where partner companies hold varying policies. Please get in touch if you are seeking information about costs on collaboration tours.

The Hike Collective acknowledges the Australian Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples of this nation. We acknowledge the traditional custodians of the lands on which we hike. We pay our respects to ancestors and Elders, past and present. The Hike Collective is committed to honouring Australian Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples’ unique cultural and spiritual relationships to the land, waters and seas and their rich contribution to society.
