The Bay of Fires Long Weekend

Bay of Fires Lodge Walk

If squeaky white-sand beaches and wild coastline appeal to you, the Bay of Fires is a spectacular reason to lace up.  We begin at Boulder Point in Mt William National Park where we journey four hours to semi-permanent tents in the dunes.  At our Forester Beach Camp there is no roughing it, take an ocean dip and return for pinots poured and your meal underway.

Day two is all about secluded coves, hearing tales of early inhabitants and making our way to the Bay of Fires Lodge.  This is home for the next two nights - where foot spas and library time come standard and signature experiences in the outdoor bath tempt. Day three, grab a kayak, paddle and glide down the Ansons River or relax into a ‘lodge day.’

We take it easy on the final day, serving up a brekkie out on deck followed by a one-hour walk to our forest lunch location. It’s then onward to Entally Lodge to celebrate our shared four days.

Available Departure Dates: October 12, 20, 24, & 26, 2021 (Until sold out).

Cradle Mountain Huts Walk

Join us on the iconic Overland Track, retreating each evening to the only private accommodation along the trail. Discover the rare beauty and diversity of Tasmania’s World Heritage-listed Cradle Mountain-Lake St Clair National Park.

Expert guides take the lead across this ancient landscape, converting to chefs come evening. They’ll also take the heavy load, leaving you with a lightweight pack. At the end of each day, retreat to a hot shower, sumptuous meals, freshly baked bread, a glass of Tasmanian wine and a comfortable bed.

Cradle Mountain Huts Walk is a six-day walk along the iconic Overland Track, retreating each evening to the comfort of the only private accommodation along the trail. The fully guided walk begins at Waldheim in Cradle Valley and journeys some 65 kilometres through to Lake St Clair, Australia’s deepest natural lake. 

Available Departures: October 5, 7, 9, 27, 28, 29, 30, & 31, 2021

Wineglass Bay Sail Walk Six-Days

Our signature voyage begins at Fortescue Bay, with a walk to Cape Hauy. Back at Fortescue, our luxury 23-metre (75-foot) ketch is waiting. Lady Eugenie is your well-appointed retreat for the next six days.

Setting sail up Tassie’s East Coast, next stop is Lagoon Bay. A morning dip, rainforest walking or just watching the Forestier Peninsula glide by are suitable picks. Day three’s hero is Maria Island - hiking up Bishop & Clerk rewards with views of what’s to come. Then comes the rare beauty of Schouten Island, served with a barefoot dinner beneath stars if the weather agrees.

Exquisite Wineglass Bay is part of your Freycinet National Park finale, complete with a Mount Graham climb and sunset dining at anchor.

Departure Dates: October 19, 2021

What is the Tasmanian Walking Company Foundation?

In 1985 Tasmanian Walking Company was offered the special privilege of developing a multi-day walking experience along the Overland Track in the Cradle Mountain/Lake St Clair National Park. Cradle Mountain Huts became the flagship for Tasmanian Walking Company and Australian Walking Company who now have six multi-day guided walks in wilderness areas.

As passionate tour operators, the walking companies decided that operating in national parks comes with a clear obligation in terms of preserving the natural and cultural integrity of these wild spaces. They began funding wildlife rescue programs, reforestation initiatives and educational activities that encourage advocacy of conservation sites.

In 2018, the decision was made to centralise the not-for-profit efforts with the formation of the Tasmanian Walking Company Foundation. The Foundation was officially launched in June 2020 on World Environment Day with a commitment to donating $1 million over five years.  Tasmanian Walking Company and Australian Walking Company are recognised leaders in environmental travel practices with an ethos of leaving nothing behind.

Please contact kirsty@taswalkingco.com.au for further details.
