    Bay of Fires: Bay of Fires spectacular and pristine coastline, was named by Captain Tobias Furneaux in 1773 following the many Aboriginal fires he sighted as he sailed by. The slice of coastal heaven that is the Bay of Fires stretches over 50 kilometres from Binalong Bay in the south to Eddystone Point in the north. The sight is simply jaw-dropping: the turquoise-coloured ocean breaks onto a breathtakingly white beach fringed with huge boulders draped with iconic orange lichen. This beautiful part of Tasmania's east coast has been named by Lonely Planet as the hottest travel destination in the world, and is widely regarded as one of the most beautiful places in Australia.

    Maria Island is a natural wildlife sanctuary and off-shore retreat with historic ruins, sweeping bays, dramatic cliffs and plenty of stories to tell. Described as Tasmania's Noah's Ark, Maria Island's pristine untouched beaches, the crystal clear waters of the surrounding Marine Reserve and scenery like the magnificent Mt Maria and Bishop and Clerk peaks will take your breath away. A former limestone quarry at the Fossil Cliffs provides a fascinating close-up look at the many ancient creatures immortalised as fossils in the rocks.

    Freycinet National Park is 100 years old which makes it one of two of the first National Parks in Tasmania. Freycinet has a unique geological history and therefore some of the most picturesque beaches in the world. Most famously the pink granite beaches and contrasting white quartz beaches.

    Tasmania's Three Capes: Tasmania's Three Capes is about the journey. Few places on Earth remain that feel so remote, so raw, so removed from the ordinary. This is Tasmania's natural pathway. Walk side by side up mosaic stone steps and let nature's drama unfold.
  • Accommodation

    You will stay at three accommodations during the trekking trip.

    Icena Farm House (2 nights)
    For the two nights' away you stay within a short drive of Mt William National Park in self-contained farm-house style accommodation. Each of the two houses (Icena and Platypus) are air-conditioned (heat-pump), fully furnished 4 bedroom homes. One room has an ensuite and there is another main bathroom in the house. Two bedrooms have queen-sized beds, while the other two bedrooms each contain two single beds. The houses are furnished with TV, DVD, dishwasher and washing machine, fan-forced oven and microwave, as well as outdoors deck and barbecue.

    Freycinet Cottage (2 nights)
    Freycinet Cottage is located in Coles Bay. The cottages overlook Freycinet National Park, Coles Bay and across to the Hazards Mountains. They are within walking distance to the shop and café, and just a short stroll to Richardson’s beach. The one-bedroom cabins set a lovely rustic bushland surrounds offer a queen bed with ensuite bathroom. The two-bedroom cabins have a queen master bedroom and a second bedroom with single beds. Both cabins contain a well catered full kitchen, comfortable lounge area and covered private balcony with stunning views over the water. Access to the beach is right across the road, and the National Park is only minutes' drive away.

These cabins have two rooms with the one shared bathroom between the two rooms and a shared living area. Each cabin has its own bathroom, but none of the individual rooms within the cabin have their own ensuite. You can choose a single supplement if you would prefer not to share a room, this means you would have one room in the two-bedroom cabin and could be sharing the cabin (and bathroom) with one or two other guests.

While every effort will be made to provide the services and experiences as offered in our brochure, on our website, and in our trip letters, we reserve the right to vary your itinerary. In the event that we are forced to change your arrangements, substitute arrangements of a similar standard will be provided.

    Cancellation by The Tour Operator
    The walks take place in very special wilderness settings. The tour operator is at the mercy of nature in all her beauty and all her fury. The tour operator will under no circumstance knowingly place at risk the health and well-being of our guests and guides. In the case of natural threats, acts of God and the like (e.g. bushfires, impassable snow, etc) the tour operator may need to cancel a walk with very little notice. In some cases, this can occur after the walk has commenced. The tour operator reserves the right to cancel any walk up to 60 days prior to departure if a minimum of 4 walkers are unable to meet for a tour. If the tour operator needs to cancel for any reason, the cost of the walk or any other costs associated with travel to the designated pick up point, overnight accommodation, meals, etc will not be covered by the OCT4 PTY LTD and therefore we strongly recommend travel insurance be taken out prior to travel.

    Force Majeure
    'Force Majeure' means (without restriction) any event which OCT4 Pty Ltd or its third party providers could not, even with due care, foresee or avoid. Force Majeure covers events such as, but not limited to, adverse weather conditions, fire and all similar events beyond our control. In the case of Force Majeure OCT4 Pty Ltd will not accept liability, and reserves the right to change and cancel trips.

    In rare circumstances, due to injury or unforeseen illness, the tour operator may need to evacuate you from a remote part of the walk. Helicopter evacuations are expensive and in most cases will be at a cost to the customer.

    For Australian residents, under the Australian Government Medicare Act, it is prohibited for any domestic travel insurance product to provide any financial reimbursement with regard to ambulance or air ambulance services. We therefore strongly advise our customers to take specific ambulance cover through their health insurance provider. Evacuation cost will not be covered by the OCT4 PTY LTD and therefore it is also strongly recommended that our customers take out travel insurance to cover (amongst other things) the costs associated with evacuation.

    Travel Insurance
    In view of the heavy cancellation penalties applied to cancelled reservations in certain circumstances, we strongly recommends suitable travel insurance be purchased at the time the holding deposit is paid. We recommend insurance cover that covers any loss which may be suffered due to cancellation. We also strongly recommend comprehensive travel insurance against loss of baggage and medical expenses.

    reviews The was a great hiking experience. Highlight was day 4 when we saw the world-famous pink granite beaches and contrasting white quartz beaches. We finished our day with some local oysters and mussels at the locally owned Freycinet Marine Farm. We enjoyed the Wilderness Cruise around the Tasman Peninsula and the visit to the Port Arthur Historic Site. This tour was well worth the money. We saw some spectacular sights and head a lot of local history on this tour. Well worth the money. Well organised. It was a great way to see the beautiful east coast of Tasmania

    reviews The hike was moderately challenging but very rewarding. We saw an abundance amount of wildlife over the 8 days. The landscape and coastline offered spectacular viewing and great photo opportunities. Our guides provided a lot of history and trivia which was very interesting. We were very impressed with their enthusiasm and caring attitude for the landscape around. We enjoyed every day of our hike but day 5 and 8 was our best. We thoroughly enjoyed the Fossil Cliffs walk and the cruise seeing the spectacular rock formations along the coastline. A well rewarding hike.
