PORT DAVEY – BATHURST HARBOUR CHARTERS
AVAILABLE ONLY FROM FEBRUARY – MAY
Embark on a three day, all-inclusive expedition into Bathurst Harbour, Port Davey. An ecotourism adventure where you will be one of the privileged few to witness the south west region of the Tasmanian Wilderness World Heritage Area. Be captivated by the harbour’s rugged terrain, marine reserves and its beautiful mirrored waters, and learn about the region’s history. Enjoy delicious, fresh Tasmanian produce and fine wine, all the while taking in the panoramic views in the comfort of your vessel, Odalisque.
This extended five day expedition allows time to experience the diversity of landscapes the region has to offer, and to explore the Marine Reserve habitat and rivers. You will be taken ashore to commence one of the many walks across the buttongrass moorlands to the summits of the mountains, where you will marvel at the spectacular wilderness views. Venture out of the harbour aboard the Odalisque, and discover rocky foreshores and striking quartzite peaks rising from the Southern Ocean, and wander along pristine white sandy beaches.
A seven day expedition into Port Davey is for those that want to ‘do it all’ on their wilderness adventure. An expedition of this length maximises the possibilities of heading out to Maatsuyker Island, being set ashore amidst a seal colony before walking to Australia’s most southerly lighthouse to witness the breathtaking scenery overlooking the Needles. This extended journey is for anyone who wants to appreciate the ever changing environment of the region. Be assured, you and your travel companions will likely be the sole visitors.
