Come with us on a journey…
Let the everyday melt away with the ultimate Tasmanian nature experience.
Spend three adventure-packed days exploring the remote Southwest wilderness of Tasmania, staying at our private camp and enjoying delicious meals prepared from local produce and tasting the best wines that the region has to offer.
At over 4500sq km, the Bathurst Harbour Marine Reserve is three times the size of Sydney Harbour and is the ultimate destination for nature lovers with opportunities to see the rare and endangered Orange Bellied Parrots, visit Aboriginal middens and caves and explore the remote waterways via your private boat.
Explore the magnificent Huon Pine forest on the Old River and the untouched Celery Top Islands. During our stay, we can take a walk on untouched beaches, see wildlife or even climb a mountain. All trails are graded easy to moderate.
Your unforgettable experience begins by air, in a twin-engine Islander aircraft and landing at Melaleuca, the only way to get access to this remote area. During the flight, we witness the grandeur of this lost world and see icons of Tasmania’s world-renowned wilderness such as Federation Peak, the Western Arthur Range, Precipitous Bluff and the rugged south coast.
Arriving at Melaleuca, we board our purpose-built vessel to explore the magnificent waterways of the Port Davey Marine Reserve before making our way to the exclusive SouthWest Wilderness Camp.
Our friendly and experienced guides will be your link to this spectacular wilderness area, giving an entertaining and insightful interpretation of the region. Also highly skilled in the kitchen, our guides will also look after you and prepare your delicious meals, too!
The Southwest Wilderness Camp experience gives you a fantastic opportunity to see untouched wilderness, in one of the planet’s last remaining temperate rainforests. Breathe the cleanest air in the world, while staying in eco-friendly comfortable accommodation with hot showers, enjoying quality Tasmanian food and wine.

MAYLANDS LODGE HOBART
A merchant “son of a convict”, a legendary architect, an iconic department store and The Salvo’s all play a part in the history of Maylands.
Truly boutique in nature and set within one of Tasmania’s finest Heritage properties. The styling is minimalist and rooms/suites are a fusion of modern and historic luxury.
Maylands is an urban luxury lodge on the fringe of the city. A place where relaxation, rejuvenation and a generosity of spirit come together.
The core ethos revolves around being sustainable in how we operate and our food is hyper-seasonal, homegrown, house-made and supports small local growers and producers.
