Escape into the land that time forgot as we head off on a 3-day adventure on Tasmania’s wild West Coast.
Deep in the West Coast wilderness Under Down Under will journey back through time to explore the heritage of Tasmania. Walk through untouched forests, explore wild rivers and rugged coastlines, see breathtaking mountainous vistas and breath the freshest air in the world. We make Strahan our home base, as we settle in for 2 nights’ accommodation to make the most of our time on the wild West Coast. Then it’s off to Cradle Mountain for walks and sightseeing before we travel to Launceston via Sheffield. This is an amazing opportunity to see part of the world that is nearly untouched by civilisation.
