A trip to Tasmania’s North West is not complete without a 4WD Adventure Tour to the amazing Tarkine Wilderness. The Tarkine is the largest tract of protected wilderness in “The Edge of the World” region. It is an expansive 447,000 hectare wilderness area of recognised World Heritage significance in Tasmania’s North West corner. The Tarkine the largest expanse of temperate rainforest in the Southern Hemisphere and one of the last remaining and most significant in the world. A mixture of rainforest and eucalypt forest, wild rivers, mountains, cave systems and extensive coastal heathlands await. There are large sand dune areas, with some containing ancient Aboriginal sacred sites. Here you will find well maintained walking tracks, lookouts, picnic places and memorable photo opportunities.
You will experience your adventure in our luxury 4WD through the breathtaking Tarkine Wilderness with the region’s most experienced guides. Enjoy fresh Tasmanian produce and a glass of wine for lunch while you experience the area’s unique flora and fauna. We offer a selection of tours, including a Tasmanian Tiger and an Aboriginal Heritage experience.
