Thank you for your lovely review Heike! We are glad you had a wonderful time in this ancient rainforest, not only once but on two occasions. We are privileged to have such fantastic guides, who share such passion and knowledge for this incredible environment. We hope to see you back in the not too distant future, on your third Tarkine/takayna experience!

Our visit to the Tarkine was a life changing adventure. It was a wonderful opportunity to relax, live in the moment and recharge our batteries. Our guides, Trevor, Jane and Dan, were delightful, very caring and knowledgable. They provided us with beautiful Tasmanian food and wine and catered for the group's many dietary requirements. Our days were spent exploring our surroundings with our guides and the walkers set the pace. Our nights were spent laughing and getting to know the others in the group. It was quite therapeutic and the Tarkine truly is a magical place.

My partner and I were picked up from Launceston and from the moment we stepped into the van we knew we were in for a fun, educational and easy going experience!

All the guides were relaxed, knowledgeable and professional. The walks were calm and allowed for plenty of photo opportunities or even just moments to reflect.

The environment is like none other! Immense ancient trees that will leave you with your jaw on the floor. Microscopic fungi that come in all shapes and sizes, and some perhaps not even discovered yet!

All of our needs were met, even a vegan diet for myself. The long hut was a fantastic communal area to share stories but private tents were only a short distance away if you felt like retreating.

One of the highlights for me was the Japanese style shower. And the water was hot!

But the most important thing about this trip was the connection we made with this unique wilderness. It draws you in and infects your veins. You don't want to leave. And for that, as well as MANY other environmental reasons, it deserves protection.

Go. Experience it. And be amazed.

Stunningly beautiful forest and rivers. An amazing profusion of brightly coloured fungi. We were completely supported in the wilderness environment. The walks were led at a leisurely pace with plenty of opportunity for rest, photography and just soaking it in. The long hut was a great meeting place and dining room, high above the forest on the top of Tiger Ridge. The accommodation consisted of a large, head high 2 room tent situated with privacy. We ate very well washed down with great coffee and Tasmanian wines. The guides were deeply knowledgeable about the area, flora and fauna, passionate in their concern for the environment and great fun. There was a lot of laughter. I would recommend this trip to anyone who would like a well supported trip in the Tasmanian Tarkine wilderness.

For anyone wanting to get right up close and personal with the Tasmanian rainforest and not an experienced bushwalker or even camper, then this is the ideal way to do it.

Everything is provided for you including transport, food, accommodation and expert guiding. The walks are very easy going and there's plenty of time to take in the scenery or take photos.

The food deserves special mention. There was cheese and biscuits, wine, beautiful main courses and desserts and even cooked lunches on our walks.

All up a great trip and highly recommended.

Room Tip: No noise in any room except the sounds of the rainforest at night.
