Franklin River

I was particularly impressed by the level of knowledge and professionalism exhibited by the river guides, Shaun and Anna. Whether it be tackling a difficult rapid, describing the fauna, flora and history of the area, preparing the campsite, producing amazing meals or subtly directing and supporting me in potentially dangerous situations, I always felt completely safe and comfortable.

 

Walls of Jerusalem Circuit

Visit Tasmania's only true alpine National Park, the Walls of Jerusalem, during this six day full-pack bushwalking expedition showcasing the regions spectacular mountain scenery, pristine wilderness as well as unique flora and fauna.

There is an option to summit King Davids Peak (1499m), Tasmania's 10th highest, as well as walks up Mt Jerusalem, The Temple and Solomons Throne. The trek continues through remote alpine herb fields and highland lake country, sideling Lake Adelaide, Lake Meston and Junction Lake to name a few.

customer reviews

Also want to give a huge pat on the back to Ben and Brendan who were amazing guides. From when I spoke to Ben pre trip about my vegan dietary requirements (I am very grateful to the effort he went to, to accommodate my fussy requests) to the very end, they were magnificent. Ben especially passionate and knowledgeable, Brendan fortunate to have him as his mentor and who Iím sure will be a very good leading Guide himself.

We were so well looked after and given the most wonderful time. I was a camping and trekking virgin and had lots of challenges and am exceedingly grateful for their outstanding expertise. Should also give credit to all of Tax Ex really, the lovely Shelley bussed us to and from, beginning and end and there were no hitches whatsoever. It was perfect.
