Overland Track

Both Victor & Matt were extremely knowledgeable of the local area, the trail, the environment (plants & animals) as well as being good fun to spend time with. It was impressive that the food was fresh throughout the trip, deliciously cooked & it catered for vegetarian and gluten free diets within the group. Our bedding was warm & comfortable and we are already looking forward to returning to Tassie!

traveller reviews

The bike and barge trip was well organized and enjoyable with the guide and boat crew playing a large part in ensuring our total enjoyment. The boat was great and quite comfortable, the food was varied and extremely appetizing and as stated above the crew couldn't have been better.
The bikes were in good condition and again very fit for purpose and although we followed the guide, the maps and instructions were very comprehensive and accurate. The guide was very helpful and did everything to ensure a safe and interesting trip.
