We’re the only guided walking company authorised by the Tasmania Parks and Wildlife Service to climb the iconic Blade and walk the full Three Capes Track on our signature experience. You’ll rest your head in the only private accommodation within Tasman National Park. Our exclusive, architecturally-designed Crescent Lodge and Cape Pillar Lodge are your havens within the wilderness. Think hot showers, superb dining and our Relaxation Pavilion where iKOU treatments rejuvenate. On our brand new Three Capes Adventure walk, take in incredible views of Tasman Island from our standing camp, which neighbours stunning Crescent Bay. Walking with lightweight packs (7kg or less) and pulling a chair up to three-course meals, let our world-class guides take you on an unforgettable journey.
Choose your adventure
Join us on this unique experience for the more experienced walker, discover the history of Tasmania, get up close to native animals in the wild and immerse yourself in the rare beauty of the Tasman National Park. Three Capes Adventure presents a sustained challenge – the difficulty lies in the distance covered particularly on day 3 which is the biggest day of walking (17km).
Be whisked away from the hustle and bustle of Hobart on the first morning, escaping to the serenity of the Tasman Peninsula. Explore Cape Raoul by foot, before being dropped off at Standup Point Camp for a well-deserved rest. On day two, you'll tackle Mount Brown, for views well worth the effort. A bite to eat in Safety Cove will keep your energy and excitement levels high before venturing across waters on your own private eco-cruise. By late afternoon we arrive at our exclusive lodge, nestled deep within the National Park. Settle in for an evening of comfort, with unrivalled views and hospitality. For the final day, it's time to lace up your boots again for the biggest walking day departing from Crescent Lodge, climbing up Mount Fortescue through a striking rainforest before arriving at Fortescue Bay in the late afternoon. From here, we'll take you back to Hobart to celebrate our walk with canapes and a glass of sparkling.

Groups meet for a gear check and briefing at the walker base (located at 164 Murray Street Hobart) at 7:30 am before departing at approximately 8:30 am. At the Walker Base, you will be instructed by our guides on how to organise your packs for the trip.
After a 1.5-hour bus drive, the Cape Raoul adventure begins from the trailhead, taking only essential items in a lightweight day pack. This walk will take approximately 5-6 hours to complete depending on the weather conditions and the walking speed of the group. The walk begins as a gentle climb through a eucalypt forest opening to views of coastal seascapes and the blue Tasman Ocean before descending to the Cape Raoul lookout. On a nice day, the group will pause to take in the Tasman views and enjoy a packed lunch, if the weather isn't being as kind, a sheltered location along the track will be just as tranquil. The trek back to the trailhead is equally as stunning as the walk out, with plenty of photo opportunities along the way.
The bus will be waiting for you at the trailhead, ready to take you to Standup Point Camp for an evening of enjoyment and to celebrate the achievements of day one. Our camp has been designed with comfort in mind, enjoy a hot shower and a delicious meal shortly after in our dining room. After dinner, sip Tasmanian wine on the deck looking out to Tasman Island, before retreating to private canvas tents, that will be fitted with either a king bed or two singles.
Approximately 6 hours walking (moderate)
Wake up to breakfast prepared by your guides, ready for a pack free trek up to the top of Mount Brown, only carrying a day pack. The effort is worth the views, from the peak, you'll be able to see Cape Raoul, Cape Pillar and Tasman Island on a clear day. The 8km return walk will take approximately 4 hours to complete. After a morning immersed in nature on the trails, Safety Cove is the perfect spot to eat lunch. We'll fuel you with local produce, in preparation for a gentle walk through to Crescent Lodge for night two, where your lodge hosts and accommodation awaits. A private boat will be waiting to depart from Safety Cove for the short trip across to Denman's Cove. On day two, it's a good idea to wear shorts, zip-off walking trousers or pants that can be rolled above your knees. You may encounter knee-high waters, depending on where sandbanks have formed when exiting the boat.
From here, you'll start the two-hour venture to Crescent Lodge, you will be delighted by stories of history and treated to stunning views, looking back at where you have travelled. Crescent Lodge is perched high, with views stretching across Crescent Bay to Cape Raoul, and guest rooms spilling into the gully. Your smiling lodge host will greet you as you arrive and will ensure your time spent is comfortable, while also preparing a three-course feast of local fare. Settle in with a warm shower as dinner is prepared.
Post dinner, take your Tassie pinot to a quiet deck for your own private sunset.
Approximately 8 hours walking (challenging)
Wake to the silence of the surrounds and wander down to the shared dining room for an early breakfast to start the day. Then it's time to lace up your boots for our walk to Fortescue Bay, today is the biggest day of walking, the challenge lies in the distance covered. The path will take you through a diversity of landscapes and ecosystems, including exposed coastal heathlands, surprise pockets of coastal rainforest and climbing the peninsula's highest peak Mount Fortescue (490 metres above sea level). Enjoy lunch with leafy-framed ocean views overlooking The Monument. You will arrive late afternoon at Fortescue Bay – the finish line! This is your chance to drop the pack and sink your toes in pristine sands and have a quick dip before we head back to Hobart via the airport.
