Nature has been kind to this tiny island nestled at the foot of the Australian continent and lapped by the waters of the Tasman Sea. It has distinctive physical presence -- misty rain forests, craggy mountains, wild rivers and clean uncrowded beaches. On our 16 day "down under" adventure, you will experience all this and more. From the quaint cobblestone streets of Hobart and the lively Salamanaca Market to the Southwest Heritage area, we paddle wild rivers, walk sandy beaches, trek through ancient coastal forests, and enjoy succulent seafood and drink regional wines.

Life is good. Nearly 40 percent of the island has been set aside as national parks, World Heritage Area, state forest or main reserve to safeguard the unique flora and fauna. Come experience Tasmania!
