Southwest Tasmania expeditions

Feedback from our Southwest expeditioners regularly states, “would have loved more time to explore Melaleuca”. We’ve listened and now our 7-day expeditions are 8 days but still with 7 days of kayaking! The first night is spent at Melaleuca with time to explore this historic wilderness area before setting off to explore Bathurst Harbour and Port Davey. Find out more on our Southwest expeditions HERE.
