About South West Wilderness Kayaking 3-Day Exploration

Rare experiences, new horizons, life-long memories – all in just three brilliant and unforgettable days.  This 3-day exploration is an ideal way to experience the majesty of Bathurst Harbour in the Tasmanian World Heritage wilderness with a splash of luxury at the Forest Lagoon standing camp.

This is the ultimate multi-day sea kayaking destination and has been named as the “most magnificent
paddling destination in Australia”
and “one of the world’s 10 epic sea kayak paddles”.

Bathurst Harbour and Port Davey, in Tasmania’s Wilderness World Heritage Area, offer a combination of sheltered wilderness harbours, rugged ocean coastlines, remote islands and wild rivers. There are no roads and no settlements. Discover spectacular destinations in the best way possible - by water, at paddling pace.

Our guides know this pristine wilderness intimately – all the sheltered bays and open beaches, the peaks and islands, every hidden corner and comfortable campsite. After a spectacular flight to the remote airstrip at
Melaleuca your days will be spent exploring one of Tasmania’s most remote and beautiful coastlines, paddling through perfect reflections in the tannin-stained waters, beneath mountains that rise from the shore and stopping in at sandy beaches.

Previous kayaking experience is not necessary, but it is important to have a sound level of fitness, and, most of all, a sense of adventure.

Trip package includes:

Transfers between Hobart and Cambridge Airport, scenic one hour return flight to Melaleuca, all meals (with an emphasis on fresh Tasmanian produce) and refreshments, a glass of Tasmanian wine each evening, two nights accommodation at the Forest Lagoon standing camp, two highly-experienced kayaking guides, comfortable and stable double sea kayaks, all specialist paddling equipment (good-quality paddle, paddling jacket, spray deck, buoyancy vest, duffel bag, and dry-bags) and national park entry fees.
