This tour starts in Hobart and finishes in Hobart. 4 Days and 3 Nights Camping and Walking Tour.
WOW – look south into an ocean wilderness – next stop Antarctica – this is the edge of the earth, the edge of Tasmania, the edge of the great south land. Stunning walks to highpoints with World Heritage views and out to the edges for wild sea spray. Wildlife in the wild – sea life, native mammals, rare birds. Evening laughs around a campfire, dinner and snuggle into a swag For four days we head south from Hobart and visit some of Tassie’s most well kept secrets, Cockle Creek, Hartz Mountains, Hastings Caves and Bruny Island just to name a few. Great campsites, beaches, mountains, caves, forests and fishing villages all make our trip to the edge of the Earth or at least the southern edge of Tassie a ripper.
Each day we participate in bush walks from 1- 5 hours and travel by four-wheel-drive troop carriers and Landrovers which are ideal to access remote areas. Each night we experience bush camping and delicious meals with campfire cooking. When we camp we use tents or you can sleep under the stars and we supply cosy swags. We see and appreciate Tasmania’s unique wildlife in the wild.
