Twelve Apostles Signature Walk   0 , NSW, Australia, May 2023
Unfortunately, I sustained an injury which impacted the last day and a half of my trip. I was really disappointed not to be able to walk the last leg of the week. The hike on the third day, however, was really enjoyable. The Walk of Silence was great and the area we hiked was incredibly beautiful. Regrettably, I missed the last walk, which I had been ...read more really looking forward to. Thankfully, a fabulous scenic helicopter flight salvaged the day, which would have otherwise been even more disappointing. The little café where we had lunch was also quite delightful. As for our guides, Jo and Chris, I couldn't be more thankful. They were extremely encouraging and I was truly grateful for their enthusiasm.
Larapinta Signature Walk   0 , VIC , Australia, May 2023
The campsite was amazing - so comfortable and central to all the walks. Trekking up Mt Sonder was challenging and rewarding, and the river crossing was a great way to finish the walk on the day. The food was superb and the guides went above and beyond to make us feel comfortable. As for recommending this tour, if someone was looking for a challenge, ...read more perhaps other companies may be preferred. However, if someone was after a very comfortable tour, then I would highly recommend this one. The guides were terrific and so informative, polite, and obliging.
Without a doubt the best experience of my life.   0 , QLD, Australia, May 2023
Hiking, the guides, Mount Ossetian, the company, huts, the scenery, the information shared, everything - all of these elements made this trip the best experience of my life, a sentiment my husband Adam echoes. Our guides, Kyah Sakura and Georgia, were incredible, enhancing our hiking experience with their knowledge, skills, and enthusiasm. Without a ...read more doubt, I would recommend this trip to everyone. The guides' contribution to our experience was truly priceless.
Definitely recommend this walk and TWC   0 , NSW, Australia, May 2023
Being amongst the natural environment and the amazing landscape of the Tasmanian Three Capes were highlights of the trip. The extraordinary views and experiences, particularly reaching each of the capes, were unforgettable. I loved everything about the trip.

However, there were limitations regarding the cooking tools at the lodge which impacted the ...read more food preparation. It would significantly enhance the experience if the team could have a toaster and a kettle to support guests' requirements for hot water and toast. I understand there may be solar power issues, but I believe this is surmountable with good batteries. Catering for 14 guests, particularly in the morning, would be easier for everyone if these appliances were available. Regardless, I definitely recommend this walk and TWC. It was my third big active walking holiday in Australia and I love it. It's a great way to meet new people and explore the wild.
Third guided walk with the Tasmanian Walking Company, and it was the best yet.   0 , VIC, Australia, May 2023
The trip to Cape Pillar was a standout, but it was the enthusiasm and support of the guides that truly made this journey unforgettable. The guides were terrific, especially Caroline, or Caz as we came to know her. Her exceptional organisation, knowledge, and enthusiasm set the tone for the trip. This was our third guided walk with the Tasmanian Walking ...read more Company, and it was the best yet. Thank you for a great holiday.
Three Capes Signature Walk   0 , WA, Australia, May 2023
In the bedrooms, I felt the need for a small mirror on the wall and some sort of bedside shelf or table so that everything didn't have to go on the floor. A door mat would have been a good addition too. Apart from these minor details, it was a very positive experience. The sight of the lodge, arriving to coffee and cake in the afternoons with spectacular ...read more views, was an awesome highlight for me! Another highlight was the massage. The breakfasts and dinners were great and the beds were comfortable. Sunrises from the lounge were spectacular. The walks were great, which goes without saying, and I really appreciated all the effort that went into making everyone feel comfortable. However, there were times when I felt a bit like I was on a school camp or excursion, likely because I prefer to do things at my own speed, reading the guide book as I go.
Three Capes Signature Walk   0 , NSW, Australia, May 2023
Our whole experience was first class. Our guides, Frankie and Mike, were extremely knowledgeable, friendly, and welcoming, as were each of the lodge hosts and other staff. Days 3 and 4 were definite highlights of the trip. Climbing The Blade, getting the first sighting of Tasman Island, and witnessing the sheer variety of landscapes and ecosystems over ...read more such relatively short distances were truly fascinating.
Three Capes Signature Walk   0 , NSW, Australia, May 2023
The silent walk, the incredible scenery, and the great lodges were key highlights of the trip. I've done a lot of walking trips in the past, but this was one of the best. The environment was obviously fantastic, but what impressed me particularly were our guides. Kieran is probably the most informative guide I've ever had.

Inspiring trip leaders
Our guides are passionate outdoor enthusiasts, educated interpreters, and fantastic hosts all rolled into one. They prioritize your safety, and the feedback we receive is consistently exceptional.

Walking independently can be enjoyable, but with our guides, you get access to inside information about the flora, fauna and local history of Tasmania’s awe-inspiring wilderness. And rather than carrying and cooking all of your food, what could be more relaxing than sitting back at the end of the day, while your guides prepare a chef-inspired three-course meal for you to enjoy with Tasmanian wines.

We take safety seriously and have practices in place to manage it. Our guides are trained in accident prevention and incident management, carry appropriate communications equipment, and are skilled in first aid. In the unlikely event of an injury, help is only a call away.
You will always be in our hands
You will always be in our hands

When you book with Tasmanian Walking Company, you'll walk with our guides and stay in our accommodation - we don't subcontract any components of our walking experiences. From the moment our drivers pick you up from your accommodation until the end of your trip, our guides will take care of you.

We believe that food should be a part of the experience, not an afterthought. That's why we have an in-house chef who designs all our meals and trains our team to prepare healthy and delicious dishes.

These unique qualities allow us to focus on every detail of your adventure and ensure that every aspect of your journey is of the highest standard.

Architecturally designed accommodation
Architecturally designed accommodation

Our accommodation is designed to provide true shelter - simple, sustainable, clean, and comfortable, while protecting and providing refuge. All of our land-based accommodations are architect-designed to sit gently on the natural environment and maximize natural assets such as sunlight and water collection.

We were the first operator entrusted by the Tasmanian Parks & Wildlife Service to build and operate accommodation within its National Parks and Wilderness World Heritage Area, and our exclusive-use accommodations provide light pack weight on all our adventures.

We offer private hut accommodation along the Overland Track, and our groups have exclusive use of Lady Eugenie on the Wineglass Bay Sail Walk. At the Bay of Fires, you'll have exclusive use of Forester Beach Camp and the award-winning Bay of Fires Lodge. The Bruny Island Long Weekend has a beautiful standing camp, and our Three Capes Lodge Walk guests have exclusive use of our Crescent Lodge and Cape Pillar Lodge - both with outstanding creature comforts and cutting-edge sustainable technologies.

We believe that accommodation is an important aspect of the walk, and it should be enjoyed, not endured!
