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.


Bay of Fires Lodge Walk

Discover the Bay of Fires from the comfort of your unique accommodations, including the award-winning Bay of Fires Lodge. This unique trip encompasses a superb series of short walks along the edge of Mt. William National Park on Tasmania's pristine East Coast. It's an awe-inspiring Tasmanian escape as you traverse this wonderfully remote and dramatic landscape. Imagine days of exploring the deserted beaches, coves and sand dunes as well as the rich diversity of the nearby woodlands. During the walk you'll be greeted by many of the native birds including the endemic black cockatoo and may even spot whales or dolphins playing in the ocean nearby. The natural highlights experienced each day in this spectacular wilderness are superbly complimented each evening when you enjoy the solitude and comfort of your exclusive accommodation in the Forester Beach camp and the luxurious Bay of Fires Lodge. A further highlight is dining on scrumptious meals created from fresh Tasmanian produce.

traveller reviews

My wife and I had a great trip on the Bay of Fires walk. The accommodation (tented and lodge) were great. Meals provided were also very good and the guides we had (James, Mitch and Tas) were a pleasure to walk with and gain knowledge from about the area. The walk is not difficult and can be done easily with a moderate fitness level. The equipment provided was very suitable for the walk and the packs are not too heavy.
