Tasmanian Wilderness (7 days)
Tasmania – a curious island at the edge of the world.
The Tasmanian Wilderness hosts a diversity of unspoiled habitats and ecosystems with plants and animals found nowhere else on Earth. It’s also stunningly beautiful.
Join Kirkhope Aviation, by private aircraft on this seven day tour to three of the most spectacular areas – the North West, the West Coast, and the East Coast.
From Cape Grim, the most northerly point on the Tasmanian mainland, to the wilderness that gave rise to the Australian Greens, the Franklin-Gordon Wild Rivers National Park, to the milky blue waters of Wineglass Bay in Freycinet National Park, local experts will take you into their little patches of paradise.
The remoteness, crystal clear water and pure air, give rise to exceptional produce. Delicious foods will sustain you, and you’ll be offered the opportunity to walk this off with not too difficult walks in some magnificent destinations.
Let us show you the best the Tasmanian Wilderness has to offer.

Day 1: Melbourne to Smithton, Cape Grim (L,D)
Depart Moorabbin Airport at 07.30am for Smithton in Tasmania’s North West. The wilderness experience begins with a tour to breathtaking Cape Grim, the most northerly tip of the Tasmanian Mainland. Cape Grim boasts the cleanest air in the world, where you’ll see the dramatic coastline and gaze out to the islands off the North West coast of Tasmania. Learn about the indigenous and western history of this remarkable region. It’s the perfect place for the clifftop towers of the Woolnorth Wind Farm and Australia's largest dairy farm, the Van Diemen's Land Company, established in 1826.
On to the quaint town of Stanley for lunch and a stroll around, before arriving at your hotel in Smithton for two nights, Tall Timbers Hotel.
Overnight: Tall Timbers Hotel, Smithton
We had a marvellous trip to Flinders and King Islands and Tasmania. Flying on a small plane is so much fun. We all loved the birds eye view of Wilsons Prom and beyond, Flinders Island, north west Tasmania, King Island and flying over the heads and over Port Philip Bay on the way home.
