Know More about this tour

Travel south of Hobart into the great Southern Forests, through the picturesque Huon Valley- famous for its apple orchards giving Tasmania the name the Apple Isle and along the beautiful Huon River. Walk through the tree tops suspended 40-meters high above the ground, then further south, delve 40-meters underground into the vast chambers of a cave tour.

The first adventure for today is to explore the Tahune Forest Airwalk. Begin the walk along the Cantilever stretching for 597-meters through the treetops. Enjoy the breathtaking views across the treetops and surrounding mountains. Back on the forest floor, take on a longer walk (1-hour) to experience the Swinging Bridges, crossing both the Picton and Huon rivers. With a 50-meter span across the rivers, this is a thrilling experience and makes for fabulous photos! For a more gentle experience, there is the easy 20-minute Huon Pine Walk where these famous and unique local trees grow alongside the river with some as old as 2000-years, a delightful and enchanting short walk.

Continue your journey south enjoying a number of short stops for easy walks, fabulous scenery and lookouts along the way.

The Hastings Cave Reserve is another spectacular place where you enjoy a variety of activities and soak up the unique atmosphere. Bring your swimming gear and jump into the Thermal Springs swimming pool where the water is always 28 degrees Celsius, fed by the naturally heated waters of the thermal springs nearby. Relax in the beautiful forest surrounds or wander the Hot Springs Nature Trail where the warm water meets the cool water, home to the unique & playful Platypus.

Head underground to explore the spectacular Hastings Caves which are Australias largest tourist Dolomite Caves, expertly conducted by the National Parks & Wildlife guides. The cave temperature is always 9 degrees Celsius so bring your jumper along.

The return to Hobart takes around 1.5-hours with a few short stops along the way, during the summer months there is ample opportunity to collect some delicious local Cherries, Berries and Apples on the way home.

    From the beginning of our day, when our incredible tour guide, Luke, picked us up, the vibe was very friendly and relaxed. Luke was very knowledgeable yet unpretentious, and very likeable - thank you, Luke, for a fabulous day!! The Tahune Airwalk and swinging bridges walks were incredible, with beautiful views of forest and river. Hastings Caves were spectacular - hopefully you get Simon as your cave tour guide too, as he was brilliant - a respectful and genuine acknowledgement of country, insightful cave information, and good humour. The only thing that was a bit disappointing was the “thermal pool” - it is basically just a swimming pool with kids running around everywhere... not very peaceful at this time of year haha! But instead of swimming in the pool, there are options of nice, easy walks to take around the pool site instead (unfortunately the platypus was very elusive). The day was topped off by a visit to an amazing honey shop, with bees to observe, and honey whiskey to try (definitely try it! Amazing.).

    Beautiful scenery. Memorable experience however the travel time was a bit long for me. Wonderful tour guide.

    A well worth trip to take when you are in Hobart. The company contacted us prior to the trip to confirm the pick up location and time. The pick up on the day was smooth. Although the driver/ tour guide Nick is young, he is very experience, friendly and knowledgeable, especially in the fauna and flora of the bush. He took the time to know everyone and our names and make sure that he spend time with each and everyone of us. A very commendable attitude. We enjoyed the trip very much.

    A varied day of scenery and activities. The airwalk is great and make sure you do the extra walk down via the suspension bridges. The pool at the springs was a bit disappointing, just looks like a surburban public pool, could do with some better landscaping. And then a change of pace with the caves.

    I liked this day trip because it was a very active day. The tour was about 10 hours long and we only spent about 2-3 hours on the bus altogether. Dan was one of the best tour guides I've ver had. He was very knowledgeable and easy-going. The Tahune Airwalk was the highlight of my day and I am glad we got to do it, even though the weather didn't look that promising. The Hastings Caves were nice but I've seen better caves before Jenovlan Caves.

    Good day, caves were amazing. Pity the thermal pool was closed for renovations but that's just bad luck. The tree walk and hanging bridges was good too!
