West Coast

A network of mining towns, tales of convicts, rugged empty coastlines, and dense rainforests embody the west coast. See everything from old growth rainforest, waterfalls, mirrored alpine lakes and highlands mountain ranges. But it’s not just about exploring the wilderness, it’s about uncovering the personal stories of pioneers, convicts, miners and piners. Witness nature at its most pristine and meet down to earth people that lead a frontier lifestyle in a rugged, unspoilt land.

Do & See

Detached from mainland Australia, the island of Tasmania offers a very different experience from your typical Australian holiday. There are luxurious guided walks into the wilderness, wild ocean cruises where you’ll enter sea caves and gaze at the tallest cliffs in the Southern Hemisphere, ocean kayaking, sailing, mountain climbing, bushwalking and wine tasting. The locals love to share stories of the island too. Expect ghost tours by candlelight, Aboriginal storytelling by campfires, and history that unravels as you explore mining towns and fishing villages of the island.
