Our Story


Ever since my hip replacement I’ve been using a walking stick – the type that has been unchanged for centuries. And then, on a visit to USA, I saw somebody with a walking stick that had a torch in the handle. Fantastic!

I immediately wanted one. With this, I would be safe from tripping over objects in the dark when walking at night, and would be seen by oncoming cars when I cross the road.

Eventually I found a store that carried them, but the American model had serious flaws. The torch was hinged, and hinges wear out and droop. It also had a tip with very little road grip, and – like with other walking sticks on sale – each time I hit the pavement with it, my shoulder stressed.

So I decided to start a little business doing nothing else but producing the very best walking stick that money could buy and one that would address these faults. I wanted a handle with a fixed light and easy grip, a tip that would grip the road, and – if possible – something that would take the shock out of the road-contact.

Then I also wanted another model I could take on my travels and this would have to fold easily – much better than my own folding stick that kept jamming, and of course I also wanted the light factor, to see and be seen in the dark. But the road gripping tip was also important, and after months of design tests, the two LightWalker models were the result. They are simply the best by any test!

Try one today and you will never want to use anything else. Both the telescopic model LWT or folding model LWF are made from the finest aeronautical grade aluminium and make walking a pleasure, especially in the dark.

More Info

As our population is ageing, more and more people find using a walking stick helpful. But walking stick technology has remained the same for 500 years – it’s just a stick you can lean on to help you spread the weight of your body. Most folding walking sticks on today’s market do no more than that, and the average adjustable walking stick can be set for height, but at pre-set intervals which may not exactly suit your body measurements.

So we set out to bring you two walking sticks of Rolls Royce quality that are lightyears ahead; the folding LWF and the telescopic LWT. The latter is based on German hiking sticks that cost well over $100 per unit with a brilliant adjustable-height mechanism so that you could adjust the height of the walking stick to the millimetre. And then we did something really radical – – we added an LED torch to both so that you can see where you’re going at night, and at the same time be very visible to oncoming traffic when you are crossing the road. We chose a fixed-position torch that had a large enough circle of visibility so that a swivel head was not required.

On the LWT, we built a spring into the shaft to give the stick an anti-shock feature – great for anyone with shoulder problems, and gave it a skid-resistant tip.

Then we made the on/off function on the LWT totally simple (a twist of the torch and it goes on, twist in the opposite direction, and it goes off). With the LED mechanism, the batteries in the head last a considerable time and the button-batteries are freely available. We then designed a concave reflector which gave some light to the area right near your feet, but kept the bulk of the light forward to the target zone. You can now see where your next step takes you!

On the folding LWF LightWalker the aircraft-grade high-quality aluminium shaft makes sure that the sections don’t stick, and fold and fit perfectly. It is undoubtedly the finest folding walking stick with the huge advantage of the torch (powered by two AAA batteries) and a skid-resistant triple section foot that grips the roads as well as it does floors.

No doubt there will be copies and lookalikes coming onto the market. But nothing will ever be as good as LightWalker. It is simply the best walking stick that money can buy!

LightWalker – – the very best – – by every test!

Our Warranty

The LightWalker walking sticks are the only ones in Australia that carry a replacement guarantee (*conditions apply). Both models of our walking sticks are built to the highest specifications, and from the best materials. So, if handled correctly, either should last you for the rest of your life. If any part or component breaks down within 12 months of purchase due to faulty manufacture, we will replace your walking stick with a brand-new unit.

*EXCEPTIONS: The warranty will not apply under the following circumstances – – –

  • If the LightWalker walking stick has been immersed in water.
  • If anyone has tried to take any part of the LightWalker walking stick apart.
  • If any damage is caused by water or fire.
  • If the walking stick has been mishandled or misused.
  • If the walking stick has been dropped or jarred so badly that this has affected the electrical operation.

To claim on the warranty, please email, with details of the date your LightWalker was purchased, where purchased, the name under which it had been purchased, and we will then email you an authority to return the stick and give you the return address. You will be responsible for the delivery cost of the return, but we will bear the cost of the postage back to you.


There will be a capped delivery charge of only $10 per parcel on every order. That means if you buy one LightWalker for yourself and one or two (or more) for friends or relatives at the same time, you will get the whole order for $10 freight, regardless of the number your order to be shipped simultaneously. You may also mix telescopic and folding sticks in your order when purchasing multiples.
