Southwest Wilderness Camp – multi-day package
THE ULTIMATE THREE-DAY GLAMPING EXPERIENCE IN TASMANIA'S MAGNIFICENT SOUTHWEST WILDERNESS
Let the everyday melt away with the ultimate Tasmanian nature experience in one of the world’s last remaining areas of accessible yet untouched wilderness.
Spend three full days exploring the remote southwest wilderness of Tasmania. Take some of the many scenic walks on offer, explore pristine waterways on a private boat tour, or simply relax in a secluded spot where all you’ll see and hear is the untouched beauty of this incredible wilderness.
At over 4500 square kilometres, the Bathurst Harbour Marine Reserve is three times the size of Sydney Harbour. It’s the ultimate destination for nature lovers with opportunities to see the rare and endangered Orange Bellied Parrots, visit Aboriginal middens and caves, and to take in the stunning scenery in every direction.
Experience the magnificent Huon Pine forest on the Old River and the untouched Celery Top Islands. Walk secluded beaches, spot local wildlife, or even climb a nearby mountain. All the walks here are graded easy to moderate.
This region is heaven for anyone who loves nature, and it’s a paradise for amateur and professional photographers.
Our friendly guides will be your personal link to this spectacular wilderness, with an entertaining and informative interpretation of the region – including exclusive insights from their many years of experience here.
And you’ll be staying at our exclusive wilderness camp in true glamping comfort, tucked away in a secret location known to very few. You’ll be warm and dry in private eco-friendly accommodation, with convenient amenities – including hot showers.
The exclusive guide for your wilderness camp experience is also a talented cook. You’ll enjoy delicious meals prepared from local produce and the best wines our state has to offer. We did say this was glamping!
