Wilderness on Water 7-Day Expeditions

From AUD $3,295.00
  • Duration: 7 Days (approx.)
  • Product code: SWEXP

This ultimate multi-day sea kayaking experience has been named as the “most magnificent
paddling destination in Australia”
and “one of the world’s 10 epic sea kayak paddles”.

Bathurst Harbour and Port Davey, in Tasmania’s Wilderness World Heritage Area, offer a combination of sheltered wilderness harbours, rugged ocean coastlines, remote islands and wild rivers. There are no roads and no settlements. Discover spectacular destinations in the best way possible - by water, at paddling pace.

Our guides know this pristine wilderness intimately – all the sheltered bays and open beaches, the peaks and islands, every hidden corner and comfortable campsite. After a spectacular flight to the remote airstrip at Melaleuca your days will be spent exploring one of Tasmania’s most remote and beautiful coastlines, paddling through perfect reflections in the tannin-stained waters, beneath mountains that rise from the shore and stopping in at sandy beaches.

This trip has a flexible itinerary with time for optional short walks or relaxing on the beach. You will spend one night in the luxury of Forest Lagoon standing camp, with your other nights in remote and hidden campsites. Every night you will enjoy delicious food with a glass of wine.

Extensive kayaking experience is not necessary, but it is important to have a sound level of fitness, be comfortable with wilderness camping and, most of all, have a sense of adventure.

Trip package includes:
Transfers between Hobart and Cambridge Airport, scenic one hour return flight to Melaleuca, all meals (with an emphasis on fresh Tasmanian produce) and refreshments, a glass of wine each evening, one night accommodation at a permanent standing camp, good quality camping equipment for the remaining nights, two highly-experienced kayaking guides, comfortable and stable double sea kayaks, all specialist paddling equipment (good-quality paddle, paddling jacket, spray deck, buoyancy vest, duffle bag, and dry-bags) and national park entry fees.

Private trips are available with a minimum of 8 participants. Please contact us for availability.
