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.

 

Port Davey and the South Coast Track

Our most epic bushwalking expedition, 16 days of pure World Heritage Wilderness. Extending the South Coast Track by adding a 7 day challenging bushwalk from Scotts Peak Dam to Melaleuca. We trek through the heart of the Southwest Wilderness World Heritage Area - from Scotts Peak Dam and Lake Pedder to Bathurst Harbour and Port Davey then on to Melaleuca. We join the regular South Coast Track group before continuing for another 9 days trekking along Tasmania's most remote wilderness coastline. This expedition creates one of the greatest wilderness experiences in Australia, traversing the entire southwest of Tasmania.
