UNESCO World Heritage Wilderness

The Tasmanian wilderness is one of the largest conservation reserves in Australia with approximately 1.6 million hectares of protected temperate wilderness. With hundreds of archaeological sites, a vast diversity of flora and home to several animals either extinct or threatened on mainland Australia, it made the World Heritage List in 1982. The insularity of the isle state of Tasmania and of the Tasmanian Wilderness in particular, has contributed to its uniqueness.

Included in the Tasmanian World Heritage Area is the iconic Southwest National Park which encapsulates Port Davey and Bathurst Harbour, themselves part of the Port Davey Marine Reserve. At Port Davey, sharp rocky ridges rise up from the southern ocean and present a stark contrast to the bright green ranges whilst the underwater landscape, influenced by tannin-rich freshwater that drains into the harbour from four major rivers, is most unusual.

Get active: Hiking in Tasmania
The Tasmanian wilderness is recognised by UNESCO for its ancient forests, and the best way to experience it is on foot. Sometimes guests feel daunted by the idea of a hike in Tasmania, but the walks included in this itinerary are very accessible, and often become the highlight of the voyage. At Freycinet National Park, guests can walk to the Wine Glass Bay lookout, one of the world’s most photographed locations. The Fluted Cape Trek, at the southern end of the picturesque Adventure Bay, takes about two hours return, but rewards you with stunning views of Storm Bay. Another beautiful trek is the walk along the Mt Beattie track which rewards walkers with incredible views over Bathurst Harbour, Bathurst Channel and Melaleuca Inlet.

The Australian Fur Seal (Artoccephalus Pusillus Doriferus)
The largest of all fur seals is found on Tasman Island. It has distinctive long, backward sweeping whiskers, and can grow to 227cm in length and up to 360kg in weight. They can also easily walk about over the rocks using all four flippers. These hefty guys love to eat bony fish, squid and octopus.

Ewe-nique Cheese – Woodbridge, Tasmania
Meet “The Girls” at Australia’s only organic sheep cheesery. Taste four different Gold Medal winning cheeses and view the process of cheese making from paddock to palate. Sample Primavera and White Pearl. Bon Appetit!
