Walk 40m high amongst the treetops at the Tahune Forest Airwalk, then head underground into one of Australia’s most amazing caves. Bring your swim gear for a dip in the Thermal Pools. This is a spectacular day travelling through Tasmania’s Huon Valley & Southern Forests.
We head South of Hobart into the Huon Valley and Southern Forests taking in a huge day of natural attractions. At Tahune Airwalk we explore the beautiful forest and river walks but the main attraction is the cantilever perched above the forest - walk 40m high amongst the treetops and check out the amazing views across the Southern Tasmanian forests and World Heritage Area.
Our day continues further south to Hastings Caves. Now we head underground into Australia’s largest tourist Dolomite Cave. National Parks staff take us on a guided cave tour. The temperature inside the cave is a constant 9 degrees (remember a jumper).
We have time to relax and enjoy the beautiful forest surrounds and you can take a dip in the Thermal Springs Pool. Bring your swim gear – the water is always 28 degrees. This is a fun, diverse and spectacular day travelling through the southern end of Tasmania.

"Hi Customer Relations
We thoroughly enjoyed our various tours off Hobart and part of southern Tasmania that I booked with Australian Explorer. The service from Australian Explorer where extremely good. Once I booked and paid I had a response and confirmation within 48 hrs of all details of tours, name of tour companies, pick-up time and vouchers.
We enjoyed all the tours we found them to be very professional, very informative and on time. We visited places that was listed in the brochure and if time allowed they took us to see other important places.
Over all we enjoyed our time in Hobart and with the various tours that we booked we saw some beautiful and interesting places.
We recommend to others to go through Australian Explore for booking tours as we have gone through this company for other trips in past.
