At A Glance Departures

Walk the Tasmania's Tarkine over four magical days and immerse in the takayna/Tarkine wilderness. Designed with a broad range of fitness levels in mind, you'll explore this 65 million year old rainforest on foot with experienced and professional guides by day. Spend your evenings in the exclusive rainforest camp accompanied by views of the forested valley whilst indulging in some fine local food and wine. This is a true "life-altering' experience in the "untouched paradise"'. It is without doubt, Australia’s best kept wilderness secret.

With World Heritage significance, this ancient rainforest sits in the Northwest region of Tasmania and is a hidden gem for you to explore. The Tarkine is pristine, enchanting, lush and untouched. The area encompasses approximately 477,000 hectares of wilderness including one of the world's largest cool temperate rainforests, a wild coastline with an extraordinary wealth of Aboriginal cultural heritage sites, and habitat for over 50 threatened species.

After walking each day, you will head back to your large, safari-style tents - complete with bed frame and mattress. All meals are included and prepared from local fine produce.

This is a camp based walk. You only need to carry a daypack.


This 4-day small group (12 walkers or fewer) walking tour is inclusive of all accommodation and meals, daily fully guided walks and transfers to and from Launceston.

Come to explore a magnificent rainforest like no other.

  • FEATURES

    The Tarkine: The Tarkine (indigenous name: takayna) is an area containing the Savage River National Park in the north west Tasmania, Australia. The Tarkine is noted for its beauty and natural values, containing the largest area of Gondwanan cool-temperate rainforest in Australia, sand dunes, coastal heathland as well as for its prominence in Tasmania's early mining history and strong links to the Tasmanian Aboriginal people.

    The plant and animal life here is as rich and varied as the many habitats that support them. Local residents include the platypus, echidna, wombat, bandicoot, possum and glider - not to mention the famous Tasmanian Devil and the state's other predators, the Spotted-tailed Quoll and Eastern Quoll.

    The Tarkine also hosts over a hundred bird species, including several rare and endemic birds like the threatened Orange-bellied Parrot.

  • Weather and Climate

    Summer (December, January, February) means miles of squeaking sand, long twilights, the white lace of surf, warm sun on your back, breezes from the sea, green light on fern fronds and insects buzzing over amber pools. It's the time to head for the beaches or bushwalk in the forests to cast a lure for trout. In the forests and on the coast wildflowers are blooming.

    Average high 21°C (70°F)
    Average low 12°C (54°F)

    Winter (June, July, August) is a dusting of snow on highland peaks and toasting your toes by an open fire. Winter days are often crisp, clear and bracing.

    Average high 12°C (54°F)
    Average low 8°C (46°F)

    Spring (September, October, November) is cool, fresh and green, and the season for celebrating a new beginning as nature bursts into life. Spring is also the time to get ready for some trout fishing action, as the fish start biting again in our inland lakes and streams.

    Average high 17°C (63°F)
    Average low 8°C (46°F)

    Autumn (March, April, May) is a mellow season with calm, sunny days. It's the time when the native deciduous beech blazes with colour. Not to be outdone, the European trees are also a riot of red, orange and gold.

    Changes to Itineraries

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. The tour operator will not be liable where interruptions to itineraries are caused by weather conditions, technical problems to transport used by the tour operator, industrial action, political or civil commotion or other circumstances beyond our control. We refer you to the conditions regarding travel insurance.

    Changes in Prices
    While we will do its utmost to honour its pricing unforeseen circumstances may mean that prices may be subject to change without notice.

    Pre-Existing Medical Conditions and Age Limits
    You need to advise OCT4 PTY LTD and the tour operator on any pre-existing medical condition, mobility impairment and/or disability that might reasonably be expected to increase the risk of your requiring medical attention, or that might affect the normal conduct of a trip and the enjoyment of other trip members.

    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.

    Evacuations
    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.
