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.

traveller reviews

Loved everything about this trip. So well organised, the guides were knowledgeable and caring, and pushed you to just outside your comfort zone, the gear was first rate, the size of the tour was very manageable, the food was excellent, and Tasmania absolutely shone. We might have just picked the best week ever to do this trip weather wise, but I think with the knowledge and experience of the guides it would have been a great trip even if it was snowing in February, which is likely in Tasmania! Organise yourself a tour now, don't wait. My new moto for life is WHY NOT, and this trip was everything I hoped it would be. A lot of that has everything to do with the fantastic group of ladies I travelled with and the rest is up to the well organised tour and fab guides. Thanks Ashton and Mick - Loved it all, even when I thought climbing Mt Amos was a stupid idea!
