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.

 

Three Capes Walk and Tasman Peninsula

The Three Capes Walk is an exciting addition to the Tasmanian walking 'must-do' list. A short 1 hour from the city of Hobart has you breathing in the invigorating coastal air of the pristine Tasman Peninsular. The stunning towering cliffs along this walk provide a permanent air of drama as you explore the peninsula over three days, including visits to Cape Raoul, Cape Pillar and Cape Hauy. This trip has some of the greatest day walks on the Island, such as Cape Raoul, a full day walk exploring 400 metre sea-cliffs, polygonal dolerite columns, and one of the worlds most famous big-wave surf breaks, Shipsterns Bluff. The Tasman Peninsula also offers World Heritage historic sites in the Port Arthur Penal Settlement as well as an award winning jet boat powered wildlife cruise, aboard the Tasman Island wilderness cruise.
