The Tasmania Adventure package is available on demand from February 2018. We do expect to be fully booked so suggest an early booking.
Day 1 Arrival into Hobart
Arrival into Hobart with pick up at Hobart Airport to meet the late afternoon/early evening flights. If you arrive early, then we suggest you take the bus to MONA or Airport Shuttle and we pick you up at MONA or the Airport Shuttle office in Liverpool Street. We can also pick up in Hobart at any location.
We drive to Hawthorn Lodge and dinner will be served at 7pm.
Day 2 Kayak the Derwent River
After breakfast we head out on the Derwent River for a 5-hour kayak. The river does have rapids that all can manage. We stop in one part of the river to allow those wanting more challenging kayaking to play in a more interesting rapid. Our lunchtime spot by the waterfall makes a good swimming spot.
Day 3 Mountain Biking or Self-Guided Walk
We are just a short drive from the brand-new Maydena Bike Park. This mountain bike park has some of the best mountain bike trails in Australia. All accessed by a shuttle bus, so downhill all the way. The mountain bike trails have been built for all levels. So if you are beginner then a perfect place to start.
An alternative is a self-guided walk on the Tarn Shelf at Mt Field. The circuit takes around 6 hours.
Day 4 Hobart Transfer
After breakfast we will transfer you to Hobart or Hobart Airport.
