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 Winter Experience

The Walls of Jerusalem is Tasmania's only true alpine national park. To truly appreciate the grandeur of this alpine setting, fit and hardy walkers should consider walking and snowshoeing through the highlands during the winter months when the landscapes are blanketed with fresh snow. The Walls of Jerusalem are only accessible by foot, and this walking and snowshoeing itinerary provides an ideal introduction to winter camping. Climbing up through the forests, past the historic Trapper's Hut above the treeline to the scattered tarns known as Solomon's Jewels. Our base camp is nearby and from here your days are filled with sensational excursions carrying only the day's necessities, returning at the end of each day to your comfortable camping set up. The trip is suitable for those who have never snowshoed before as time will be allocated to learn the art of this increasingly popular mode of winter travel. Depending on the weather, we aim to explore the heart of the "Walls", and climb Mt. Jerusalem, King David's Peak & possibly reach the remote outer areas known as Golden Gate and Zion Vale by either foot or on snowshoes.
