About
Tours consists of 3 elements, an up-close visit to the cliff top towers of the Woolnorth Wind Farm, Tasmania's first large scale wind farm and information centre. A visit to the historic Woolnorth property homestead and historic precinct, while driving through the dairy lands of the Van Diemen’s Land Company(VDL Farms). Finally, a visit to the breathtaking Cape Grim where we see the wonderful coastline, breathe the Cleanest Air in the World, and witness all the islands off the NW coast of Tasmania. 193 years of agricultural history and a focus on indigenous culture and connection to PLACE. Learn about modern, large scale farming, get your head blown off in the Roaring 40's, chance an up-close encounter with Tasmania native animals and access coastline that dates back 250,000,000 years. We are the only way to visit Cape Grim, part of privately owned land. Tours depart from 1665 Woolnorth Road, Woolnorth. Morning tea is included. All COVID-19 precautions are in place.

Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

It's not surprising to learn that Laura took this guide job when her mum called it quits.
If you are in the area this is a must do, Laura great insights not only into the windfarm, the longest original use land grant still in its original use. Along with the indigenous history, Cape Grim sure lived up to its name and the cliffs and surrounds-so rugged yet beautiful in their own way. Morning tea- homemade cookies. Even before the cookies my husband commented on how glad he was that he wasn't able to talk me out of doing the tour

Laura was a very informative tour guide. Hearing the history of Cape Grim as told by Laura with such feeling made a couple of people in our group quite emotional and brought tears to the eyes. It has a sad and cruel history. Laura told this story while we were in the old shearing sheds having morning tea before heading out at Cape Grim. We could picture what happened when we were out there.

Seeing the wind farms up close and hearing how they operate was fascinating.

The only negative was that we had checked to see how many people would be on the tour before committing to it, as one person in our group of six is immune compromised and we were advised there would only be eight people. Another three were added so the bus was completely full and the back seat with four across was very squishy.

We weren't in the bus for long stretches of time, so it wasn't a huge problem but if you are not little people it is something to bear in mind when booking.

It is well worth going on the tour and you will learn heaps of information and history of the area.

The comments were very interesting however for $90 it should have been half the price. The morning tea was instant coffee, rather than brewed and the biscuits were bought rather than home baked. In previous years it had been a much much better tour. I would not recommend it for the price, it was not value for money.
