We travel south out of Hobart into the countryside, passing through scenic farmland, beside the Huon River for a short stretch and then down to Geeveston or Dover for morning tea and to collect our lunch and local fruit in season.
Another hour sees us circling the western side of Recherche Bay and over the Cockle Creek bridge into the South-west National Park.
Walks to the west coast and far south coast of Tasmania (southernmost tip of Tasmania) originate from this site but we are taking a shorter and easier walk along sparkling white beaches around the bay and through bushland (Fishers Point) where we can enjoy our lunch overlooking the southern ocean.
After a pleasant walk back to the car, we travel back through the southern forests to Franklin to relax with some local refreshments near the Huon River. We then return to Hobart in time for dinner.
Southern 4WD Tour’s day trips depart from Hobart and return to the same pickup location/collection point.
Within several hours, passengers can experience world-class natural environments including spectacular coastal scenery and pristine alpine regions and still be back in time for a delightful dinner in Hobart.
Such locations usually require some travel on gravel roads, and your tour vehicle is ideally suited to this.
As we plan to carry a maximum of 4 customers, tours can be adjusted to cater for specific interests, wildlife and culinary delights as necessary.
All trips incorporate some outdoor walking which is generally quite easy. Customers should wear or bring appropriate outdoor clothing for Tasmania and be suitably healthy and fit to enjoy these walks.
The full daily tour fee is applicable whether there are 1, 2, 3 or 4 customers. If customers request a tour with less participants, this may be available for a reduced cost under certain conditions – however, requests for tours with less than 4 participants are approved only by special arrangement.
