  • 5 Day Frenchmans Cap Walking Tour

    Frenchmans Cap is a truly iconic Tasmanian mountain sentinel – one of the world’s great wilderness treks.

    Located at an impressive 1,446 metres above sea level, Frenchman’s Cap towers over some of the most breathtaking mountain country in Tasmania. The landscape dominating Cap was first sighted from the Tasmanian west coast and was a landmark recorded with the establishment of the penal settlement on Sarah Island, in Macquarie Harbour (1822-1837). Sculptured through the Pleistocene glaciation age, the features of the mountain and its surrounds are spectacular and offer a challenging trekking adventure. The famous wild Franklin River snakes its way around Frenchmans and forms part of this rewarding wilderness journey in the heart of the Tasmanian Wilderness World Heritage Area. Five days enables us to complete this trek with good opportunities to summit this amazing peak and complete exploratory walks in the area.

  • 6 Day Flinders Island Walking Tour

    Named after Captain Matthew Flinders who first navigated these islands in 1798, Flinders Island is one Australia’s best kept walking holiday secrets.

    Flinders Island is the main island of the Furneaux group, a collection of 78 islands that stretch across Bass Strait between Tasmania and mainland Australia. A true hidden gem, Flinders is 75km long and 40km wide, with a resident population of about 800 people and is blessed with pure white beaches, crystal clear turquoise waters, striking mountain peaks and ranges. Flinders Island enjoys a more moderate climate compared to its neighbours, Melbourne and Launceston and is best enjoyed in the summer season. With a backbone of granite peaking at Strzelecki and continuing through the Darling Ranges, the island offers spectacular rugged mountain ranges, in addition to rich wide agricultural plains and stunning coastal scenery. The island has abundant native wildlife, gorgeous wild flowers and extensive stands of old growth forests.

    Trek Tasmania is excited to offer this guided walking tour, which will be led by two of our professional wilderness guides. This trek is fully vehicle supported so you only carry a day pack. Our guides love to source as much local produce as they can; our meals are a highlight of every trek. We take you to the must see places and the secret spots that no one else knows about, getting fully immersed in the wilderness heart of the island. Our Flinders Island 6 day walking holiday is about getting off track, slowing down the pace, swimming, camping and walking in a true wilderness wonderland.

  • 6 Day Overland Track Walking Tour

    The Overland Track is Australia’s most iconic wilderness trekking journey. Trek Tasmania offers an opportunity to experience this classic Tasmanian bushwalking adventure, showcasing everything that this Tasmanian wilderness world heritage area has to offer.

    First blazed in 1931, the Overland Track’s popularity grew from early ecotourism ventures in the region, particularly in the Cradle Mountain Valley itself. The now moderately graded track winds its way across some of the most heavily glaciated landscapes in Australia. Here, the tallest Tasmanian peaks guard some of Australia’s deepest valleys and gorges, including Mount Ossa (1,617m). Walking in this country is often considered life shaping. We believe the trail has its own folklore embedded into the unique cultural history of the Tasmanian highlands. Each day offers something new, from experiencing soaring Wedgetail eagles over Gondwanan forests, to some of the earths largest exposed dolerite rock forms. The Overland Track is one of the most varied walking experiences Tasmania has to offer; this unique diversity has underpinned its popularity.

    We spend 6 days walking the track, staying at purpose built group camping sites each night; add to this the company and expertise of some of the very best wilderness guides and you are guaranteed a trek of a lifetime.

  • 6 Day Tarkine and the West Walking Tour

    The Tarkine wilderness region encompasses 447,000 hectares of wilderness, including the southern hemispheres largest single tract of temperate rainforest, a wild western coastline with an extraordinary wealth of aboriginal cultural heritage sites and critical habitat for over 50 threatened species.

    Join Trek Tasmania on this fully accommodated day pack hiking adventure, exploring one of the most remote and beautiful parts of the world – the Tarkine wilderness in the north-west of Tasmania.

    The Tarkine (takayna) contains a wildly diverse landscape – including Australia’s largest patch of temperate rainforest – and a world of natural treasures including mountain ranges, wild river and cave systems, buttongrass moorlands, and a rugged coastline with long sandy beaches, grassy woodland and coastal heath. The plant and animal life here is as rich and varied as the many habitats that support them – it is alive with frogs, birds, 28 different mammals, endangered wedge-tailed eagles and the now rare Astacopsis gouldi – the world’s biggest freshwater lobster. It is home to one of the greatest concentrations of Aboriginal sites in Australia and reflects the history of more recent times telling the stories of miners, farmers and fishers.

    We explore the spectacular highlights and trails of the Tarkine region with stays in lodge style accommodation. Three nights at Corinna in eco-cabins, set deep in the pristine Tarkine rainforest along the banks of the majestic Pieman River is an experience not to be missed.

Our 9 day itinerary allows us time to relax, giving us the time to really take in the beauty and the feeling you get being in the complete wilderness. Having a rest day and a food drop half way along the trail gives us time to recuperate and lighten the load. It is an ideal place to take it easy, read a book, go exploring the many bays and sea caves or just sit on the beach gazing out at the Southern Ocean and its many islands. This trip is a favourite of our guides; the South Coast Track inspires, tests and ultimately rewards them like no other. Their vast knowledge and experience in the wilderness ensures a trip that will be a truly memorable life experience.
