Woolnorth Tour (2hrs)

The Tour consists of three main elements. The first is an up-close visit to the cliff top towers of the Woolnorth Wind Farm and information centre. The second is a visit to the historic Woolnorth property homestead and historic precinct, while driving through wonderful dairy lands of the Van Diemen’s Land (VDL) Company. Finally, a visit to the breath taking 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.

A Taste of Tarkine (3+hrs)

These tours operate year round, as well as on weekends.This tour is for those who love nature at it best. The tour involves several of the most beautiful locations that the Tarkine has to offer; including Dip Falls, and the Trowutta Arch. The tour also includes a lovely drive through Circular Head’s rich farmlands and a visit to the Blue Hills Honey Farm.

Lunch is included with this tour. A reasonable level of mobility is recommended.

Wow! What a great and informative tour that is run by Laura. She is a fantastic and informative guide that appears to be absolutely full of knowledge. This is a very authentic and realistic tour. A must do to understand a little about windfarms, dairying and farming in general as well the historical side of Woolnorth.

We ended up with two tours on the one day - Taste of Tarkine and Woolnorth Station - and it was the best day we've had in a long time! The Tarkine tour takes you to places you can't see without a four-wheel-drive, as well as pointing out and visiting things you wouldn't even realise are there. It's a great... More

On our first trip to this beautiful state, we had the pleasure of taking in the sights with Woolworth tours. The tour makes accessible some of the amazing natural sights of the area, including waterfalls, stunning forests and Trowutta arch, which had we not taken the tour we would have missed. Couldn't rate this tour high enough. Thank you!

What a treat! Laura's local knowledge of this property, its history, the ecology of the area - all made for a great tour. Cape Grim was spectacular, with a sad history that needs to be heard

From the incredible wind generators through to the running of the estate and the the aboriginal history. Would highly recommend this tour, it was both informative and... More

Had the best time on this tour - Fascinated by the awesome wind turbines from afar and up close. Amazing technology and interesting commentary from our very informative guide. From wind farm to dairy and learning about operational and farming techniques and future expansion. Cape Grim has a past and is spectacularly beautiful. Great tour.

A really interesting and informative tour. Helen was extremely knowledgeable with every aspect and her manner was delightful. I found the wind farm part the most interesting but that's because I'm an electrical engineer but the whole tour was great. Well done guys I'd recommend you to anyone.
