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 Self Guided Experience

For experienced walkers, a self guided trek into Tasmania's impressive Walls of Jerusalem National Park should be high on the agenda when considering unique walking opportunities. Only accessible by foot, Tasmania's only true alpine National Park is a spectacular and remote mountain landscape carved by glaciers. After a briefing by our guides in Launceston you will be transferred to the trailhead to begin the short hike into the comfortable base camp, complete with toilets and tent platforms, situated near the entrance to the Walls of Jerusalem peaks. From here it's up to you where you wish to explore. Leaving your main gear at basecamp, enjoy delightful day walks with light packs into the heart of the 'Walls'. You'll have the chance to climb King David's Peak and Mt Jerusalem, from where views stretch across much of Tasmania, or venture to remote outer regions such as Golden Gate or Zion Vale. This self guided walking adventure in Tasmania is a good introduction for those wishing to extend their hiking CV to independent walking in remote wilderness.
