Wild Southwest Walking Tours

Review for Hiking Tour
Not just a kayaker:
Liam is a first rate bush guide
5 of 5 stars
Reviewed 10 February 2014 4

We are frequent kayakers back home, but wanted to explore remote southwest Tasmanian wilderness areas by bushwalking with an experienced guide. Liam of Tassie Bound was happy to oblige. His original plan was to guide us to the summit of Mount Anne, but 100kph winds made that impossible. So instead we explored the Growling Swallet and hiked the Pinnacles off the road to Strathgordon. Liam was professional, well-prepared, extremely personable, knowledgeable, and safe. We would never have found the first trail without him. His beautifully restored old Land Rover is part of the ambiance of the trip itself. Next dream trip: to return with my trail-running friends and pound out some extreme bushwalking. I know Liam would be up to the challenge.

  Due to popular demand we have now added full and half day hiking tours to Tassie Bound Adventures. Gain exclusive access to the hidden secrets of the World Heritage Upper and Lower Florentine Valley and the South West National Park.

Choose between the following destinations depending on your fitness level and timeline. We also provide transport, picnic style lunch, morning tea and refreshments with every tour.

Growling Swallet – 2 hour return easy- moderate walk.
Meander through the tallest flowering plants in the world and gain access to one of the longest underground limestone cast systems and watch it disappear into the earth beneath you.

And/Or
The Needles – 2 hours return – moderate to hard walk
Climb from a base of 600m to just over 1000m to gain a birds eye 360 degree view of the breathtaking South West National Park and beyond.

And/Or
Churchills Hut – Easy one hour walk
Hidden alongside the old Adamsfield Track discover the original hut of the Trapper Elias Churchill. This is where the last Tasmanian Tiger was captured and is now restored close to its original condition.

Or
Full day Mount Anne
Arguably one of the most spectacular day hikes in the world. This is a full day expedition and requires you to have a moderate to high level of fitness. Please call for prices on Mount Anne Full day.
