What a fabulous trip! The 3 Capes Lodge hike was harder than we expected, but the experience was amazing and we were very proud we made it being 57/60 years olds with very little training. The actual walking track is a feat in itself, a lot of time & effort has gone into building it, and the lodges are amazing, very luxe, this is hiking at its most luxurious. Great food and great wines, with a super comfy bed at the end of a long day, hiking doesn't get much better than this! A special shout out to our guides, Steph & Rhi, enthusiasm plus, professional, entertaining and just all round great girls. They really added to a great trip that we will be telling stories about for years. Totally recommended, get out there and do it!!

The three capes is a 4 day, 3 night 48km trail that (despite the name) visits two capes - Cape Huay and Cape Pillar. The 'third' cape is actually a view of Cape Raoul across the bay which one sees on their first nights accomodation (This can be hiked as a seperate day trip if someone desires this). Unlike other hikes you actually need to pay 500 dollars (At time of writing) to do the three capes. This includes a boat ride from Port Arthur (The start of the track) and a bus back from Fortiscue bay (The end of the track) to Port Arthur + guaranteed accommodation each night. I initially thought this was a little steep but when you see the effort that has been put into the trail, in particular the accomodation (which is lux) its actually reasonable. Visitor numbers are capped and you need to book through the three capes website. Availability we found, particularly during summer to be scant. Some tour companies like the Tasmanian walking company also offer 'guided walks' in which they cover the three capes but stay at different accomodation. I didn't go on these so I cannot comment. Technically if you cannot get onto the three capes track and want to do it - you can actually camp at Fortiscue bay and access Cape Pillar and Cape Huay as long day hikes from same. You could cover about half the three capes track with this method and not pay a cent (apart from the parks pass). Fitness wise its not that challenging - although you will be sore at the end of it. You don't need to bring as much equipment as for example - the overland track as there is no need to pack a tent, mattresses or any cooking equipment (this is all taken care of). The accomodation was beautiful and all featured some stunning views of the surrounding environment. The views particularly on days 3 and 4 are spectacular and we really enjoyed the hike. We have no real complaints at all. I would recommend it to others. It's possibly the best thing we have done in Tasmania in over 4 weeks worth of travels.

This was my first experience of a Tas Walking Co walk but I’m very likely to do another. I’ve walked Tas Peninsula before but now I’m a bit older not carrying such a heavy pack was appealing and enjoyed. We were very well looked after with ample food and lovely Tassie wines to enjoy. A shower at the end of the walking day was a bush walking treat for a multi day hike that was really enjoyed. Always eager to enjoy beautiful Tasmanian landscapes and environments and the wildflowers were amazing.

The trip was so wonderful it is hard to know where to start. The guides were brilliant - knowledgable, fit and entertaining. The food was simply superb. The wine was delicious - and plenty of it. The plunge pool was fun. The beds were very very comfy, and the hot water bottles made them very cosy :) The drying rooms are fabulous - so you leave in dry gear each morning. I would absolutely recommend this trip to anyone. For maximum enjoyment a bit of fitness is required, but I won't overstate that. Loads of people can do it. Get out there and do it - have fun.

I have been on quite a few guided walks with the Tasmanian Walking Company. All of them are excellent, but this one is simply amazing. There is nothing on this walk that could be improved upon. The guides are friendly and knowledgeable, the accommodation is very comfortable, the food and wine first rate - and the walk itself has some of the most extraordinary scenery you'll see anywhere in the world. A first class way to experience the best that Australia has to offer.
