Travel Advisory

Your well-being is our top priority

At Tasmanian Expeditions, your safety is our first concern. Our specific protocols and safety analysis procedures, in conjunction with updates provided by our local partners and community, allow us to carefully assess the stability of each region we visit and plan our operations accordingly. Our staff frequently review all aspects of our adventures to ensure we are providing you with the best possible travel experience. 

For updates on specific events and regions, please see our most recent travel warnings and advice below. 


Coronavirus - COVID-19 Update: 24 August 2020

On the 18th of August, the Tasmanian Government announced that the current COVID-19 travel restrictions would remain in place until at least the 1st of December. These restrictions mean that the Tasmanian borders will remain closed to residents of all other States and Territories.

We will continue to operate trips for Tasmanians only until 1 December 2020. We will continue to take bookings from non-Tasmanian residents for trips after the 1st of December 2020. 

Most of our Tasmanian trips can be booked via our $0 Deposit Promotion.

We will be contacting all clients who have been affected by these recent announcements.


Coronavirus - COVID-19 Update: 20 March 2020 

Due to the travel restrictions to Tasmania implemented by the Tasmanian government on 19 March 2020 because of COVID-19 all our Tasmanian trips between 21st March 2020 and 30th May 2020 will be postponed. 

We will be contacting all clients who have been affected. 

We ask at this time rather than call our offices, to put your communication in an email to us, and we are doing our best to respond to them as quickly as we can. 


Bushfires: 6 January 2020

Bushfire smoke from the mainland has affected some flights into and out of Flinders Island. The Fingal fire on the east coast and southern Statford-Gordon fire are under control. There are no affected areas we are operating our adventures in. Tasmanian Expeditions is constantly in contact with local services prior to departing our trips. As always, before heading into a national park, please check the current conditions before entering.


Franklin-Gordon Wild Rivers National Park: 10 November 2019

High levels of water in the Franklin-Gordon Wild Rivers National Park and wet conditions with rain and snow has caused the Franklin River Rafting expedition departing on 10 November as unsafe. The trip was deemed inoperable due to the high levels of water. The rain and melted snow from the surrounding mountains including Frenchman's Cap contributed to the river's fast pace through the narrow passages. Continued melted snow will increase water levels resulting in rapid movement in the river system. The river may overflow onto the banks and make sleeping and resting conditions intolerable. 

Tasmanian Expeditions priority is to ensure the safety of our clients and guides and to provide a comfortable memorable experience. We will continue to monitor the water levels of the Franklin River to reassess future departures.
