PLEASE SUBSCRIBE and support this channel - thank you!  Tasmania's South Coast Track is one of the toughest multi-day hikes in Australia. The track is in rugged and remote, Tasmanian Wilderness and takes 6-8 days to complete. This video follows my February 2018 trip, which I hosted for World Expeditions/Tasmanian Expeditions.  The video was shot on iPhone 8, with an Osmo Mobile and underwater shots by Panasonic Lumix.

Therefore, it came as somewhat of a surprise to discover hiking and camping in my mid 20’s and it fast became somewhat of an obsession.  Since then, I’ve become a leader with the Sydney Bush Walkers Club and Search Manager with NSW SES Bush Search and Rescue.  The outdoors totally changed my life and I’m keen to share my knowledge and stories with others – hoping that they’ll catch the bug too! Apart from sharing tips here and on the YouTube channel, I am also a casual guide for the Duke of Edinburgh Award Scheme, encouraging young people aged 14-17 years old to fall in love with wild places. You can also find me as a regular contributor for Great Walks and Travel Play Live Magazines, live on radio ABC702 Weekends with Simon Marnie and appearing as a speaker and workshop host at events such as Bushwalking Australia Conferences, ProBlogger, ORIC (Outdoor Recreation Industry) Conference, SheWentWild and Women’s Adventure Summit. The iconic Cradle Mountain National Park is yours to explore on our short & exciting walking holiday.   Carrying just a day pack, explore the base of the Great Western Tiers on foot before a visit to the fascinating caves of the Mole Creek Karst National Park. It's then on to the Cradle Mountain National Park high country where you'll have a number of impressive walks to choose from, you can even tackle the summit of Cradle Mountain (weather permitting).   The 360-degree panoramic views of Tasmania's highest mountains and surrounding wilderness area from the summit of Cradle Mountain is simply unbeatable.   With healthy meals, comfortable accommodation, 24 hour emergency backup, and professional guides provided, you will be able to focus on enjoying your holiday. This is a fantastic introduction to active travel.  Learn more: https://www.tasmanianexpeditions.com.au/CMW  ------------------------------  Inspired? See More!

The inspiring four-day journey along the Freycinet Peninsula on Tasmania's east coast combines exciting coastal and mountain walking during the day with comfortable accommodations each evening. The walk will take you along deserted beaches, up pink granite monoliths and through the heart of the rich native heath lands of the Freycinet National park, including the iconic Wineglass Bay.  Return each evening to the award winning lodge where your hosts will serve you splendid meals and regional wines. You can enjoy a hot shower or bath before sleeping in a comfortable bed after a satisfying day of walking. A true eco-lodge, it has solar power, waterless toilets and rainwater tanks which ensure that it leaves a minimal impact on the environment of this secret place. The walk itself covers between 33 and 37 kms depending on which walking option you choose. Regardless of choice, you will travel from the southern tip to the north of the Freycinet Peninsula in a continuous journey and the best part is that because this bushwalk is lodge based, you don't have to carry a heavy back pack. No one except your fellow walkers and the four staff will be at the lodge with you - making it a special place to truly unwind.  ------------------------------  Inspired? See More!
