WHAT TO EXPECT

This day trip explores the area south of Hobart and takes you to the Tahune Forest Airwalk – a cantilevered bridge that allows you to walk through the treetops 40 metres above the ground! Further south still, the tour stops at the Hasting Caves for a swim in the thermal pools and a spectacular underground cave walk. This tour travels south of Hobart through the picturesque Huon Valley a region famous for its abundant produce of apples, pears, cherries, and fish farming.



The day begins at the Tahune Forest Airwalk. You'll head up the short hill to begin a walk along the Cantilever. It stretches for 597 m through the treetops. Enjoy the sensation of being suspended above the Huon River with breathtaking views across the treetops and surrounding mountains. You have free time to explore Tahune.

 

The tour continues with a longer walk (45 mins) to experience the Swinging Bridges. With a 50m span across the river, this thrilling experience and is perfect for photos to freak out mom! For a more tame experience, there is the easy 20 minute Huon Pine Walk where unique, local trees grow alongside the river — some are 2000 years old! It's a delightful and enchanting short walk.



The tour continues south to the Hastings Cave Reserve. This is a quiet, remote, and spectacular area where you'll enjoy a variety of activities and a unique atmosphere. Bring your swimming gear and jump into the Thermal Springs swimming pool where the water is always 28 degrees. This spring is fed by the naturally heated waters of the thermal springs nearby. You also have the option to relax in the beautiful forest surroundings. Wander along the Hot Springs Nature Trail where the warm water meets the cool water — it's also home to the playful platypus. Keep your eye out for this elusive local!



The tour heads underground to explore the spectacular cave, which is Australia’s largest tourist Dolomite Cave. You'll join the underground tour expertly conducted by the National Parks and Wildlife guides. The cave temperature is always 9 degrees so bring your jumper!  



The return drive to Hobart provides the opportunity to make short stops along the way. The tour will stop at roadside stalls so you can shop for delicious local produce such as cherries, berries, apples, ice cream, and honey.  Fruit and produce stops are seasonal and may also vary due to the changeable operating hours of the various operators.



The tour returns to your Hobart City accommodation around 5.30-6.00pm.
