Tahune Airwalk and Hastings Caves
Today’s tour travels south of Hobart into the great Southern Forests, along with the Huon River through the Huon Valley. Walk “through the trees” suspended 40m high above the ground, then further south we drive to delve 40m underground into the vast chambers of a cave tour.
Our first major adventure for today is to explore the Tahune Forest Airwalk. We head up the short hill to begin our walk along the Cantilever. It stretches for 597 m through the treetops.
Enjoy the sensation of being suspended above the Huon River with breathtaking views across the treetops and surrounding mountains. We have time to explore and enjoy more walking here at Tahune.
We can take on a longer walk (45mins) to experience the “Swinging Bridges”. With a 50m span across the river, this is another thrilling experience and makes for fabulous photos!
For a more “tame” experience, there is the easy 20 minute Huon Pine Walk where these famous and unique local trees grow alongside the river with some as old as 2000 years, a delightful and enchanting short walk.
We continue our journey south enjoying a number of short stops for easy walks, fabulous scenery and lookouts along the way.
The Hastings Cave Reserve is another spectacular place where we enjoy a variety of activities and soak up the unique atmosphere. Bring your swim gear and jump into the Thermal Springs pool where the water is always 28 degrees. Relax in the beautiful forest surrounds or wander the Hot Springs Nature Trail where the warm water meets the cool water.
We begin our Cave Tour conducted by the National Parks expert guides. The cave temperature is always 9 degrees so bring your jumper along for this one. We head underground to explore this spectacular cave which is Australia’s largest tourist Dolomite Cave.
Our return to Hobart takes around 1.5 hours with a few short stops along the way. This is a fun, diverse and relaxed day out. We return to Hobart around 6.00pm.
Mondays and Thursdays from Hobart accommodation at 7.30am
