This walk was just life altering for me. It transformed my busy, cluttered mind and stressed body into one of peace and serenity and all with a greater appreciation of forest preservation, ecology and Tasmania. The walk challenged me but throughout I felt totally supported and cared for by Trevor, Jane and Erik. There were plenty of rest stops and... More

We spent 3 lovely nights at the longhouse, the experience made wonderful by the efforts and kind-spiritedness of the guides (combined of course with the beauty of the rainforest!). Would highly recommend this to anyone looking for some time away, or really for any reason.

What a fantastic experience! The forest itself was the most pristine, unpolluted place I've ever walked in and was just beautiful. The gear was great, the ground soft and I've never slept so well. Our guides, Trevor and Jonny, were interesting, friendly, knowledgeable and passionate about the Tarkine. The meals Trevor provided were perfect especially for a person with IBS.... More

Amazing rainforest and wilderness that you see on TV and say it can't be that beautiful! Well it is and more. You walk with a point of view that time is etched on the trees and rocks,history and culture echoing with each step. It's a great treat and one I'll never forget ! True freedom

I travelled to the Tarkine Rainforest Retreat with a small group of photographer friends, led by Paul Hoelen. Tarkine Trails have set up a brilliantly-designed minimal-impact camp on a ridge which, first, reduces the amount of equipment we normally would bring to spend several days in wilderness and, second, provides both vista (from the dining area) and forest intimacy (from...

We have just completed the four day rainforest walk and thoroughly enjoyed it. The guides were terrific; knowledgeable, skilled and passionate about the Tarkine. The lodge works wonderfully, tents and beds are excellent. Food was better than expected. Highly recommended for local and overseas guests looking to experience the pristine forest.

As far as experiencing Tassie wilderness with comfort and style, this 4 day adventure was fantastic. The knowledge of our guides Johnny and Daniel was amazing. The highlight of my trip was a scat from a Tassie Devil, with a complete jaw bone from possibly a joey. Johnny was our enthusiastic scat interpreter and I learnt so much. The size... More

This is an amazing place in my own backyard (i'm a local Tasmanian) that i was blown away by. The peaceful and serene wilderness provided us with the best time for 4 days and 3 nights. The organisation of the trip by Tarkine Trails left nothing to chance and we were looked after by two fabulous young guides Daniel and... More
