Tour Highlights
Cradle Mountain

Here, ancient pines fringe glacial lakes and icy streams cascade down rugged mountains. Walk around the picturesque Dove Lake while gazing at the craggy alpine mountain.

Corinna Wilderness Experience

Nature lovers will relish this ancient unbroken tract of temperate rainforest. Cruise the beautiful Pieman River and hear about how convicts endured this wilderness.

Gordon River Cruise

Jump onboard for the award-winning six-hour cruise up the Gordon River. Visit Sarah island – the dreaded penal colony and find out how convicts survived in this remote environment.


Enjoy a three-hour journey through the Central Highlands to Cradle Mountain. We stop at Sheffield to check out the beautiful mural art.

Breathe in the pure fresh air at Cradle Mountain. This iconic mountain is located in Cradle Mountain-Lake St Claire National Park, part of the Tasmanian World Heritage Area. Here, ancient pines fringe glacial lakes and icy streams cascade down rugged mountains. The vegetation is rich and diverse including grassland, rainforest and many ancient plants such as King Billy pine and fagus – Australia’s only deciduous native. It’s a hotspot for native wildlife including wombats, quolls, Tasmanian Devils and echidnas.

We do a three hour walk around the picturesque Dove Lake, one of Tasmania’s premier walks. This glacially formed lake beneath Cradle Mountain is surrounded by diverse vegetation. Walk past buttongrass, myrtle, sassafras and magnificent rainforest as you enjoy intimate and epic views of the famous mountain.

Enjoy a drive through stunning forests to the remote town of Corinna. Set in pristine ancient rainforest, Corinna is in one of the most remote regions of Tasmania. This is a nature-lovers paradise. We stay at the southern end of takayna/Tarkine, the largest temperate rainforest in Australia.

Enjoy a cruise along the peaceful Pieman River and experience the serenity of this untouched wilderness.

Learn about the last attempted convict escape watching the play The Ship that Never Was in the pretty harbour-side town of Strahan.

Embark on the famous and award-winning Gordon River Cruise across Macquarie Harbour to Hells Gates and then up the Gordon River. Enjoy the tranquillity of this majestic river in Tasmania’s World Heritage-listed South West Wilderness National Park. Hop off for a short nature walk through tall Huon pines, sassafras and myrtle.

Warm up by the crackling fire at Rathmore House, the perfect cosy and historic accommodation for our final evening. A sheep property settled in 1828, this is authentic country living at its best.

See the most photographed and arguably the most pretty waterfall in Tasmania – Russell Falls. Walk under man ferns and large eucalypts, past mossy glens and glow worms to the cascading tiered falls. It’s the perfect end to the tour.
