Tasmania's most secluded trips

True isolation in some of Tasmania's most remote corners

Discover the secluded trips that are not only incredibly beautiful, but a little bit tough and ultimately rewarding. Some of Tasmania's most treasured and remote landscapes can’t be accessed by cars or even mountain bikes. These breathtaking places, like the remote beaches of Tasmania’s South Coast Track, Frenchman's Cap and summiting Mount Anne can only be reached on two feet, can be challenging, and are completely isolated from civilisation.

Trek the South West National Park

The South West National Park is unlike any other destination in Australia. The wild and remote countryside spans over six hundred thousand hectares, making it a varied region of wild rivers, jagged mountain ranges, rolling button grass plains and silent green rainforest. Exploring this region by foot takes strong mental stamina, endurance, and peak physical fitness, thanks to the long distances covered, high mountain ranges and difficult terrain.

The South Coast Track

The South Coast Track is undoubtedly one of last great wilderness treks in Australia, and is also known as one of Tasmania's toughest multi-day treks. This 9 day trek covers 85 kilometers over a variety of Tasmanian landscapes, crossing the unspoiled wilderness of Tasmania’s southernmost shores. From empty beaches, towering rainforests, and alpine heights, trekkers see it all! Walking between 10-15 kms each day across remote walking tracks, sometimes across river crossings, muddy moors and steep ascents, the journey is made all the more challenging thanks to the need to carry a full pack of up to 20kgs each day. However, it's the ever-changing landscape, pristine wilderness and abundance of wildlife that makes it all worthwhile – not to mention the feeling of elation and pride as you finish the trek!

Port Davey Track

The Port Davey Track, also situated in Tasmania's South West National Park, offers a path less travelled for trekkers who want to experience true beauty and isolation in the South West. While not as popular as its cousin, the South Coast Track, it is easily equally spectacular to trek through. With imposing mountain ranges, river crossings and cool temperate rainforest, it's not difficult to find moments of complete solitude and remoteness on this seven day trek. Like the South Coastr Track, trekkers have to be experienced with multi-day full pack wilderness trekking as access to civilisation is long forgotten on the trail (aside from our emergency communication devices!). 

Mount Anne Circuit

The Mount Anne Circuit could easily be considered one of Tasmania's toughest guided mountain ascents. With exposed scrambles and sub alpine crags, this unsupported bushwalking trip is five days full of tough, challenging and unforgettable walks and views. High on the aspiration list for many seasoned trekkers, the Mt Anne circuit is a thing of legend; one of the truly iconic Australian walks that is genuinely a journey that challenges trekkers to reach new heights. This exhilarating walk takes in some of the most spectacular mountain landscape found in Australia, and trekkers who complete it rave about the circuit as being one of the most extremely satisfying and enjoyable trips they have done.

Explore the Wild Rivers National Park

This pristine region is home to some of Tasmania's wildest and most unpredictable rivers, none more-so than the mighty Franklin River. Travellers who explore this area can feel true isolation as they make their way through the deep gorges, quiet pools and magnificent temperate rainforest, The sense of isolation becomes apparent as it dawns on you that apart from the Aboriginal paintings in the Kutikina Cave you will have seen very little evidence of human impact along the river.

Raft the Franklin River

Packed with everything you need for the trip in barrels and drybags, the Franklin River Rafting expeditions typically run over 9 days - and once you drop in there’s pretty much no way out. With daily thrills and spills down rapids graded anywhere from 1-5, (and the occasional grade 6 rapid which we aim to detour around), travellers down the Franklin River can be assured that a descent of the Franklin is demanding in the physical, mental and even emotional state. While previous rafting experience is not required, some wilderness knowledge, along with a sound level of fitness, is essential.
