You have just taken the first step towards having an awesome OTBT experience! You’ll receive an automated booking confirmation with details about your experience. A few days before the event, you will also receive a reminder confirming the meeting point, time, what to bring and an update on weather conditions. If at any point you want to find out more about the adventure that awaits you, please contact us.
We like to keep our group size down to ensure you receive a really special experience. We take no more than 20 guests, but for a lot of our experiences we keep things to a maximum of 10 guests.
Most of our experiences are suitable for all fitness levels. We do offer the use of hiking poles and take regular breaks to allow rest time if it is needed. Some of our hikes (such as Endurance Training Hikes) are a little harder and do require a reasonable level of fitness to achieve, but these are aimed at hikers who are wanting to step up there game.
Yes we sure do! Please make sure your mat has a strap or you can wedge it in your back pack so you don’t have to carry it.
Yes, absolutely. OTBT can tailor an experience just for you. Just contact us to find out more!
Yes! OTBT holds a Commercial Operators License with DBCA, is Tourism Accredited with the Tourism Council of Western Australia and is an insured outdoor adventure business.
Absolutely not! There are no age limits on adventure! You just need to be able to manage the distance and the terrain. Each tour page will tell you the distance and the level of difficulty.
Each experience is different depending on the duration and distance hiked/biked. You can expect to need to bring a small backpack with 2-3ltrs water, a camera, a head torch (for night tours), a yoga mat (for yoga and pilates), a good attitude and a big smile!
We will only cancel a hike if it is unsafe to proceed. Hiking in the rain is awesome and very refreshing! Hiking in a torrential downpour with strong winds, however, poses a risk. We make tough calls and will always advise you via email if we need to postpone with as much notice as possible.
We have a different policy for day tours and multi-day trips, so please refer to the webpage of your tour and scroll down to the Booking & Cancellation Policy section.
Yes, being outdoors is the safest place to be during COVID. We do ask our guests to maintain 1.5m social distancing and practice good hand hygiene throughout our tours and experiences. If you’re unwell, please stay home and we’ll do the same too.
If you’re a beginner some comfortable activewear is all you need to get out on the trails. As you become a more avid hiker we recommend long loose pants and upgrading the sneakers to hiking boots/shoes as they have better grip. Don’t forget to Slip Slop Slap too!
Nope, that’s our job! Our guides will keep a look out for any risks and provide you with clear instructions if our paths were to cross an animal that has the potential to cause harm (which is rare). Most of the time we see happy bouncing kangaroos, cockatoos, emus, eagles and lizards which we admire from afar so we don’t disturb them.
Sometimes there may be toilets depending on the trail. But more often than not we use the facili-trees to do our bush tinkles! We highly recommend you bringing a little zip lock bag for your used toilet paper and leave no trace! PS We carry a trowel if you need it!
We have plenty of beginner-friendly experiences. You filter on the tour page for Beginner hikes using the difficulty filter.
Yes of course! But be warned, you won’t be alone for very long. We have an amazing community of regular hikers that will soon become your buddies too!
