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.

 

Freycinet to Port Arthur Self Guided Cycle

This exciting self guided cycling trip exploring Freycinet National Park, Maria Island and as far south as historic Port Arthur is perfect for those looking for an exhilarating and active week away. The east coast of Tasmania offers some of the best natural experiences on offer on the island state and there are few better ways to soak it all in than by travelling by bike at your own pace on this highlight packed self guided cycling trip. After a thorough briefing from our guides in Launceston, you will be transferred to to Coles Bay, gateway to the Freycinet National Park, where you can explore the region on foot or by or kayak. It's then off to Swansea with stunning sections of riding taking in views of the farmlands, vineyards and as far off as the Hazards. The trip rolls on to Maria Island, where you can discover remnants of Tasmania's convict past and the island's extraordinary beauty on foot or a 22km circuit ride, before returning to the mainland and continuing your two wheeled journey towards the Tasman Peninsula for even more only-in-Tasmania coastal views as well as the chance to delve into the island's penal history at the historic settlement of Port Arthur before concluding in beautiful Hobart.
