Tasmania - A Bushwalkers Mecca

Tasmania is one of the world’s most mountainous islands and its natural environment is relatively unspoiled.

Almost 35% of Tasmania lies in National Parks, Reserves and Heritage sites.

This makes Tasmania a mecca for bushwalkers and local guided walking company Adventure Seekers Wilderness Journeys provide truly unique and exceptional walking experiences for their guests.

Adventure Seekers guides are professional, passionate and focused on delivering world class walking tours, which are geared toward a variety of fitness levels and walking styles.

Lush rainforests, craggy mountains, deserted beaches and hanging glacial lakes await the active adventurer. Here are some of the places that we can take you to.

4 Days – Easy/Medium

4 days of island exploration with breathtaking scenery and a rich history. This is a supported walk carrying light packs and it’s easy on the sole.

Overland Track
6 Days – Medium

This is Tasmania’s most iconic walk, starting at Cradle Mountain and snaking through rainforests and past craggy mountain peaks to Lake St Clair. With a superb itinerary and great food this is an exceptional wilderness experience.

South Coast Track
9 Days – Medium/Hard

Start your walk with a breathtaking flight to the “worlds end” then walk the southern coastline of Tasmania from west to east. You’ll pass through temperate rainforests and over wilderness beaches. This walk suits the more experienced trekker and load carrier.

Frenchman’s Cap
5 Days – Medium

A return walk, to the summit of the magnificent white quartzite dome that is Frenchman’s Cap. Behold the stunning vistas to be had over the heartland of Tasmania.

 Walls of Jerusalem
6 Days – Medium

Simply serene! A 6 day circuit in an alpine wonderland of majestic mountain tarns and unique alpine vegetation. Picturesque camping spots lie in the shadows of rustic mountain huts. Heavenly!

Tasman Peninsula
4 Days - Medium/Hard

Walk along the top of Australia’s highest vertical sea cliffs. This walk extends out to Capes Pillar and Hauy and boasts spectacular ocean rock stacks and off shore islands.

Lake Oberon
6 Days – Hard

Lake Oberon sits at an elevation of 800m in the Western Arthur Range. Camp beside pristine lakes and be amazed at the geological wonderment of what is part of the “best ridge walk” in Australia.

Wild Hikes
Hard Yakka!

Wild Hikes will take you into the wild South West World Heritage area of Tasmania. The places that we visit are, remote, off track and limited to small groups. Destinations include the Western Arthur Range and South West Cape.

Adventure Seekers Wilderness Journeys also run Electric Bike Tours (fun for the whole family) up the East Coast of Tasmania as well as an adventurous 6day Backpacker Safari.
