Mulgas Adventures tours have an age requirement of 18-49 years old: That doesn’t mean you’re not welcome to join the tour, if you’re 50+ they just want you to have an idea of what to expect. Their tour is aimed at the young or the “young at heart” because besides that there is a lot of hiking and sleeping in swags under the stars, most of our passengers are young backpackers aged in their 20’s.
