Cradle Mountain & the Walls of Jerusalem

My 16 year old son and I have just finished the Cradle Mountains & Walls of Jerusalem walk and, while driving home, we were reflecting on why it was so rewarding and so much fun.

We expected spectacular scenery and plant life, and they were spectacular. We expected challenging terrain and weather, and they were challenging. We didn't expect such exceptional guides and that is why I am writing to you.

Tim is obviously a very experienced, capable and knowlegeable guide and I probably can't tell you anything you don't already know about him. He is a thorough professional. We always felt safe but challenged. I was impressed with his efforts in finding us interesting things to see and do in the Walls when the weather didn't allow us to visit the usual places. I also thought he handled the stop-over in Mole Creek due to flooding with a good combination of leadership and humour and it turned out to be a trip highlight!

So, the thing is, the environment we visited was every bit as spectacular, challenging and rewar ding as we had hoped for. What made this holiday exceptional was your wonderful guides.My son and I have thanked them, but we wanted to let you know as well.

 

Great Tasmanian Traverse

26/06/2017

 

We are delighted to share a little secret we've been working on the past few months: The “Great Tasmanian Traverse”.

The first of its kind in Australia, the Great Tasmanian Traverse allows you to cross the Apple Island almost entirely under your own steam and cover the entire length of the island over 38 days. Our inaugural fully-guided traverse will start in Northern Tasmania at the beginning of the Coast to Cradle Trail and finish at Cockle Creek, Australia’s southern most town.

The Great Tasmanian Traverse combines five of our most popular adventures; Penguin to Cradle, The Overland Track, Frenchmans Cap Trek, Franklin River Rafting and the South Coast Track.

Covering some of the most remote and beautiful wilderness regions in the world, highlights include a week rafting down the iconic Franklin River, trekking in Tasmania’s pristine world heritage regions, a memorable scenic flight over the West Coast and Southwest World Heritage area and a transfer to Strahan on the famous Stormbreaker yacht.

Explore the more remote parts of Tasmania that encapsulate the pristine and untouched wilderness environments that Tasmania is so well known for. The entire trek includes a myriad of passes ranging from moderate to challenging and journey through landscapes that have remained untouched for centuries.

This is the ultimate Tasmanian adventure for the experienced trekker looking for their next challenge in one of the last great wilderness areas left on the planet. Find out more by visiting the trip page here.
