Explore Tasmania's wilderness

Explore Tasmania's wilderness

It has been said that a sojourn in Tasmania's rainforest can add years to one's life. The purity of the elements is the result of wilderness largely unchanged for millions of years. The Tarkine rainforest has remained almost unknown to the outside world and conceals many unexplored valleys and wild rivers. Travellers on Intrepid's Tasmania's Tarkine Wilderness Adventure will discover ancient myrtle trees, and relics from the Gondwana supercontinent. They will drink from the purest freshwater creeks, tackle horizontal tree systems, discover secret waterfalls and will witness the neon phenomenon of nocturnal glow worms at work. They might even get a glimpse of the elusive freshwater crayfish or platypus on this Tasmanian adventure.

Tasmania's Tarkine Wilderness
Explorers will wander through giant fern glades and will experience awe among horizontal trees. They will wade through rushing rivers, brave an icy rock pool by a waterfall, and drink from freshwater creeks while travelling through this ancient rainforest. This adventure costs from NZ $2190 for 7 days.

Passengers on Intrepid's Tassie Explorer will step into a land of exquisite beauty and unspoiled terrain. From flawless beaches, stunning gorges, and mineral cliffs to frothing waterfalls, and glacial lakes, Intrepid will take travellers on a journey through a world marked by natural wonders and timeless grace. They will enjoy a closer look at the incredible sights as they travel through this island paradise.
