With international borders still firmly closed and the hunger for adventure growing, it’s no surprise that beautiful Tassie is on track to have its busiest season ever.
The Tassie adventure specialists, Tasmanian Expeditions, is reporting strong bookings across its entire range with many guided, self-guided and family trips quickly filling, since border restrictions lifted.
According to General Manager Michael Buggy, booking levels are very encouraging and demonstrate returning confidence in domestic travel.
“After a horror year for travel due to COVID-19, it’s heartening to see such strong interest in summertime Tasmanian travel across our entire range,

“It means we can employ guides and support all the communities we visit across our itineraries.”
“The Overland Track in the Cradle Mountain National Park, which is undisputedly one of the country’s finest and best-known walks, is already heavily booked, as are walks in nearby Walls of Jerusalem National Park, including the 6 day guided Walls of Jerusalem Circuit,” Mr Buggy said.
“Similarly, the multi-activity Cycle, Kayak and Walk Tasmania, which was selected as one of National Geographic Traveller Magazine’s ’50 Tours of a Lifetime’, also has limited availability, with the combination of vehicle supported cycling, kayaking and walking has proven a popular trip for active adventurers keen to explore the must- see highlights of Tasmania’s spectacular East Coast,” he said.

Mr Buggy said the company has taken more bookings across its range of summer rafting expeditions than in previous years, with several departures fully booked already.
“We’ve expanded the range to meet demand, launching several new trips, including an exclusive, gourmet adventure escorted by Peter Kuruvita, a challenging camping- based hike to the Maria Island summit and a self-guided drive in the magnificent Tarkine,” he said.
The new trips are in addition to the company’s many classic tours, which range from a 3 day Cradle mountain family adventure, the 9 day Franklin River Rafting Expedition to the 39 day Great Tasmanian Traverse.
