If you want to explore the "wild west" wilderness this tour is ideal for you. It takes you to all the main places and more. You will see the Russell Falls, walk amongst the giant trees in Mt Field National Park and visit Australia's deepest lake, Lake St Clair. You will also walk through amazing national parks and rainforests, always admiring what is on offer from nature.
Escape into the land that time forgot as we head off on a 3-day adventure on Tasmania’s wild West Coast.
Immerse yourself deep in the wilderness! We will journey back through time to explore our heritage, walk through untouched forests, explore wild rivers and rugged coastlines, see breathtaking mountainous vistas and breath the freshest air in the world. We make Strahan our home base, as we settle in for 2 nights’ accommodation to make the most of our time on the wild West Coast. Then it’s off to Cradle Mountain for walks and sightseeing before we travel to Launceston via Sheffield. This is an amazing opportunity to see part of the world that is nearly untouched by civilisation.
