Six Day Tasman Trail

Tasman Peninsula, Bushwalk, Tasmania
These moderate tours require a reasonable level of fitness. You can find some of Tasmania's most dramatically beautiful coastal scenery on the east coast of the Tasman Peninsula, in the south-east of the state. The Tasman Coastal Trail, one of Tasmania's Great Walks, follows the spectacular 300 metre dolerite cliffs along the coastline from Tasman Arch to Fortescue Bay and out to Cape Pillar. A well defined track follows the coast and is fairly dry under foot. You will see an array of wildlife; seals, penguins, dolphins and whales at various times, with Australian fur seals using the rugged coastline for breeding and resting, and fairy penguins nesting along the foreshore. The Tasman Peninsula enjoys a mild year-round climate: warm and dry in summer, cool and temperate in winter. You will experience breathtaking coastal views from the cliff tops up and down the coast, beautiful little bays (Bivouac, Canoe and Fortescue), and small offshore islands (The Lanterns and towering Tasman Island). This tour is never far from the coast, yet still offers a sense of isolation and adventure in a relaxing and non-challenging environment.
