Day 1:

You are met at the Whitemark airport and start our tour travelling toward the centre of the island to Walker's Lookout taking in the views of the east and west coast as well towards the north. You travel through the farming region of Memana, which was set up for the soldier settlement scheme in the 1960's.

Our tour takes us to the east coast. An area known as the Patriach's Wildlife Reserve where we learn of one man's determination to protect the Cape Barren Geese and establish this reserve. This is a beautiful setting for lunch where the wallabies come from the bush to join us.

You travel south to Cameron's Inlet, a breeding ground for the many bird life. We should see many of the northern waders that migrate to this area from the north. We take a short stroll along the beautiful east coast beach with fantastic views to Babel Island. You continue south to Lady Barron where you find your accommodation at the Furneaux Tavern overlooking Franklin Sound and the southern islands.

The Island is a naturalist’s paradise. Placed as it is between Tasmania and Victoria the island forms an interesting cut-off point for some fauna and flora, being the southernmost location for some and the northernmost for other, endemic Tasmanian species.
