South Coast Track
Wild unspoilt wilderness, remote untouched beaches, rugged mountain ranges, pristine rivers, and towering rainforests - this is wilderness at its best. Originally an escape route for shipwrecked sailors, the South Coast Track now doubles as an escape route from modern life. The trip begins with a spectacular flight to the remote airstrip at Melaleuca in the heart of the wilderness. From here you will trek east for nine days along the 80 km track, following the coast and finishing at Cockle Creek. The generous time frame built into this itinerary allows for side trips and a complete rest day for swimming and relaxing on an empty beach. You will walk 10-15kms per day carrying packs up to 20kgs; no special skills are required other than excellent fitness and an open, flexible approach to being in remote areas for consecutive days. Amidst this truly wild area you will discover a land with a history of early pioneers and indigenous Australians that is occupied by an abundance of wildlife including wombat's, pademelons, quolls and the rare orange-bellied parrot.

Kim & Steph were fantastic. Very knowledgeable, professional, good cooks and we had lots of laughs. They are an asset to your business. The South Coast Track is one of the most amazing coast lines I have seen. The trek was challenging however extremely rewarding.
