The ideal tour to experience Tasmania's wild and remote west coast. We aim to stay away from the crowds, from camping in the bush to sleeping beside the ocean under the stars. Enjoy bush walks through Cradle Mountain, the Tarkine and Lake St Clair. Cross the west coast's Pieman River at Corinna, a remote settlement and camp beside the Southern Ocean. Marvel at Tasmania's tallest waterfall, Montezuma Falls and drive through Franklin- Gordon Wild Rivers National Park. Visit some of Australia's tallest trees in the Styx Valley...

In four adventurous days on the East coast we visit the Tasman Peninsula and its giant sea cliffs, Freycinet Peninsula where we'll climb up through the Hazards to view magical Wineglass Bay, we will walk through the spectacular Blue Tier mountains and forests, famous for its giant ferns and eucalypts, before ending up to the north east coast with arguably some of the world's best beaches at Bay of Fires. If you really want to experience the amazing variety of Tassie's mild side we recommend this 4-Day tour exploring Tasmania's scenic, sunny east coast and hinterland. Stay away from the crowds, enjoy a hike and relax with a camp fire dinner under the stars.... Each day we participate in bush walks from 1-5 hours and travel by small buses.

Each night we experience bush camping and delicious meals with campfire cooking. When we camp we use tents or you can sleep under the stars and we supply cosy swags. We see and appreciate Tasmania's unique wildlife in the wild.
