An amazing adventure in the wild ancient forest

Stories to Share and Remember

More than just a walk in the woods – you will navigate on forest roads and tracks with a sense of place on a journey in some of the planet’s superlative forests.

Amazing Science

Within minutes, you will read the history of the forest and learn about its possible futures. We’ll bring the laser rangefinder, tape measure and spherical camera – all you need to bring is interest and awareness.

The Best Of Photos

Bring your camera, we'll provide the trees. We'll track down the best angles to capture spectacular images of spectacular trees. Vivid colours, complex structures, natural beauty

Magical Scenery

Getting there is half the fun – panoramic views of the coastline, harbour, or mountains as we travel to the forested corners of our amazing island.

A Wonderful Picnic

Tasmania is world-renowned for its fantastic food. Enjoy a lunch from arguably Australia's best bakery, and in season, visit the orchards to buy roadside apples and cherries!

Forest Under The Trees

We’ll take a closer look – underneath the Giant Trees are the plants and fungus of the ancient rainforest lineages, and countless animal species.
