Overview

This is your chance to come and explore the hidden treasures of northern Tasmania on a journey of discovery. Four days and three nights of exciting adventures, walking and unique activities, where nothing is unachieveable and everything is taken care of. With a positive and inspiring social atmosphere that will create great memories and perhaps lifelong friends.
 

We have planned a tour that covers this magical landscape of stunning contrasts, featuring pure white beaches, vivid mossy green boulders in a lush rainforest, and all the while tempting you with stunning mountain vistas. We’ll forge ahead in the rain or the sun with every day being different and every morning wake up fresh and excited about the day ahead. With a variety of walks, activities and tastings we’ll satisfy your need for adventure and invigorate you plus give you some time to unwind and relax, because that’s important too.

VIEWS
DAYS 4

The activities range from pleasant waterfall walks to remote cliff tops – all showcasing a diverse range of scenery and geography. Caves, mountain ascents, and much more – we’ll take you off the beaten track to show you amazing places and allow you to unlock some local gems.

We want this to be about you, so leave the stress behind and let us entertain you. Our personalised tours are social, fun and accommodating and you’ll get around in the comfort of our chauffeured bus, eat lots of healthy home cooked food, and sleep like logs in twin share rooms. 

This trip is a treat for yourself, but you won’t sit on your ass all day long. You are not going to be rushed around but you are going to be challenged and get your heart rate up, and hopefully form good friendships. 

So if you want a stress free wilderness adventure around Tasmania, with local knowledge, a personalised group, and a fully catered and organised tour, then buy a ticket and meet us at the airport!

Itinerary at a glance

We will pick you up at Launceston Airport or from the Grand Chancellor Hotel in Launceston, before heading straight off to our first event, Quamby Bluff, an outlying hill of the Western Tiers and a pretty steep 6km hike to the top, taking 4-5hrs. This challenging walk is incredibly rewarding as you travel through ferns and forest until reaching the big scree boulders then the steep and winding ascent to the top (1250m). We will then head to our accommodation for our first yummy dinner, and a relaxing evening.

We head over to Honeycomb caves, where you will be and harnessed in before you abseil into a cave, on our 10m abseiling morning. You will then walk out under head torch, it’s such a rush! Of course we will be there to support and guide you. You will be able to do this multiple times!!! The afternoon will be spent walking to Westmoreland Waterfall walk. A chance to relax the heart rate and shaky legs as we meander the ferns and native bush on this very scenic and beautiful walk.

Up early for a drive to Sheffield where we will walk our longest of the tour up Mt Roland, grade 4, 18 km/6hr before finishing the day admiring and quick mural crossword puzzle with coffee in hand in and around the famous murals of Sheffield. Before heading home for an optional stretch session.

An optional pre-breakfast morning fast hike to Alum Cliffs or a little bit of a sleep in on our last day before we head back to Launceston via a little honey tasting shop. We’ll then drive to Cataract Gorge where we will do a 8km grade 3 spectacular walk. We’ll take the scenic route first along the rough track with a few ups and downs then explore the Basin before heading to the pump house and back down wandering along the easy track. The gorge is a spectacular place to visit, with Peacocks roaming the lawns and the suspension bridge. We’ll have you back at the Airport with plenty of time to relax, share some photos and chill out before the short hop home. For those staying in Launceston we recommend a tour of the James Boags Brewery)
