Larapinta Trek

We had a wonderful time on our recent 8 day Larapinta Trek. The trip was made all the more enjoyable by the assistance of our guides Adrian and Craig. Their flexibility, steady temperaments, knowledge, friendship, experience, sense of humor and ability in the kitchen took all the difficulties out of our experience. Nothing was too much trouble, and everything that should have happened happened, and happened when it should have. They made the whole experience for us a simple walk in the bush. We could not reccommend them more highly.

Port Davey Track

The Port Davey Track is a challenging bushwalk in the remote south west of Tasmania's World Heritage wilderness area. Trekking out from Scotts Peak Dam the group will skirt the imposing Western Arthurs. Surrounded by the ancient peaks of the White Monolith Range, you will camp on the banks of the mystical Crossing and Spring Rivers. Rare pockets of rainforest with ancient Celery Top Pines and Sassafras are a contrast to the open skies of the Lost World Plateau. A boat crossing of Bathurst Harbour at the Narrows leads to a walk to the isolated outpost of Melaleuca where you will prepare for an exhilarating flight back into civilization. This tour can be combined with our nine day South Coast Track trip, creating one of the world's greatest wilderness experiences, a sixteen day traverse of the entire south west of Tasmania.

traveller reviews

Port Davey offers a path less travelled for walkers who want the beauty and isolation of the south west without the foot traffic, manicured camp sites, and dry creek crossings of the alternatives. I enjoyed it immensely and highly recommend it to anyone who thinks they are up to the challenge.
