Overview

Walk among Tasmania’s Tarkine wilderness, the largest tract of unbroken cool-temperate rainforest remaining in the Southern Hemisphere. This 65-million-year-old forest houses hidden gems and ancient relics including tree species that exist elsewhere only as fossils.

We have designed the Tarkine Wilderness walks in order to unlock the beauty of the region that includes mountains, wild rivers, the sublime coastline with its ferocious oceans and iconic open plains. A real highlight of the trip is the boat journey down the Pieman River and then the walk out along the coast.

As part of the Tasmanian Wilderness World Heritage Area, Cradle Mountain–Lake St Clair National Park is renowned for its glacier-sculpted mountain peaks, river gorges and icy streams cascading down rugged mountains, glacial lakes, tarns and tracts of wild alpine moorland. We get up close and personal to Cradle Mountain by walking a part of the iconic overland track, the Cradle Mountain Face Track and Dove Lake.

Importantly on this 5-day journey, we remain immersed in the quiet wilderness as the accommodations are located right on the edge of these majestic parks. At the end of the day take a hot shower, enjoy a glass of wine, a two course meal, then sleep soundly and awake to a cooked breakfast before tackling the next day’s walk.
