WILSONS PROM NORTHERN CIRCUIT
**Please note – we have alternate tour dates available upon application for each tour. Please submit an enquiry form if you require alternate dates to any of our listed tours.
In late January, we did a test walk of the South West Cape of Tasmania. This walk starts from Melaleuca airport, the same as for the South Coast Track, however the walk veers off to the West, and does a long loop back to Melaleuca.
This was undoubtably a tough walk. It is for experienced hikers only, over rough and some unmarked terrain, scrub bashing, swimming a creek crossing, steep ascents, and steep descents, and some over very exposed terrain.
See the following links to follow the trek:
