Escape to Port Davey: An expedition cruise through Southwest Tasmania’s World Heritage Area
This all-inclusive, guided expedition cruise takes you deep into the pristine coastal wilderness of Tasmania’s remote Southwest. This region is one of the most spectacular landscapes on the planet, with wild rivers, quartzite peaks and endless waterways. Only accessible by foot, boat or light aircraft, this remote wilderness area is a Marine Nature Reserve and forms part of the Tasmanian Wilderness World Heritage Area. Your journey begins with a spectacular flight from Hobart to Melaleuca. Upon landing, crew will take you by tender through the mirrored waters of the inlet to your floating home, the base from which you will explore the untouched Southwest.
Expeditions are based from a ‘boutique floating hotel’, the Odalisque, a custom-built twenty-metre vessel equipped with hot showers and soft beds. Guests are entertained by an all-star crew, including skipper, local chef & expert guide. The guest chefs (borrowed from Hobart’s best restaurants) provide top-notch, modern Tasmanian fare paired with fine Tasmanian wine. The hand-picked expert guides (with years of experience in the area) will double as your personal walking encyclopedias.
Please note this is true expedition travel. The itinerary acts as an example, your trip will be tailor-made to the weather, your interests and other factors. This allows for the best possible experience.
