At K'gari Walking Tours we take safety seriously, we know that K'gari is a remote wilderness, with limited mobile coverage and precautions that need to be undertaken. This is why we don't let hikers walk solo, we ensure our hikers stay in groups and always have eyes on each other. We also provide adventure hikes with the SPOT GEN 3 which is a satellite GPS messenger, that can send updated locational information back to base or be activated in an emergency situation.
