Australian Tourism Awards GOLD

We are beyond excited and proud to have recently won Australia's Best Adventure Tourism Operator at the Qantas Australian Tourism Awards. We love what we do and work hard to ensure everyone's kayaking and Tasmanian experience is memorable. We are so proud that our team has been recognised with this award.

Tasmania as a whole shone at these awards, and we stood beaming broadly with our fellow tourism operators as we celebrated seven gold awards and a total of 17 awards when you add in silver and bronze.

If you’re a mainlander or an international visitor, there’s never been a better time to explore all our unique state has to offer. And with so many extraordinary and diverse experiences waiting for you in our small island state, why wouldn't you holiday at home in Tasmania this year?

Our packages span a variety of experiences that are like no other:

  • Day tours from Hobart — See the harbour from a whole new perspective with a 2 ½ hour city paddle, or explore more of the coastline with multi-day tours and packages to see Hobart’s cliffs, caves and beaches, perfect for novice and experienced paddlers. Even if you only have a few days to spend in the city, make sure you don’t miss our day tours from Hobart, which will remain fond memories for years to come.
  • Flinders Island explorations — A singular gem located at the Eastern end of the Bass Strait between Victoria and Tasmania, Flinders Island is one of the region’s best-kept secrets. Discover the breathtaking beauty of Mt Strzelecki and Mt Killiecrankie, the serene pastures of cows and incredible natural wildlife with a tour of this laidback and incredibly biodiverse paradise. 
  • Southwest Tasmania wilderness expeditions — You asked, and we’ve answered. After lots of feedback from our Southwest expeditions asking for more time to explore Melaleuca, we’re now excited to offer our 7-day kayaking expeditions with an extra day for more sightseeing! The first night is spent at Melaleuca, with time to explore this historic wilderness area before exploring Bathurst Harbour and Port Davey.
