Tasmanian Wildlife Tour

Our Tasmanian Wildlife Tour is dedicated to showcasing Tasmania’s abundant native wildlife. This came about as a result of my work in Victoria over the winter months, taking mainly international visitors on day tours to the rural, coastal and wild areas of Victoria. The one common denominator between nearly all the guests was wanting to see native wildlife. This was my first time conducting tours outside Tasmania, where we seem to take the abundance of our wildlife for granted, and what I did not realise was how accessible Tasmanian wildlife is in comparison with many national parks and wild places in Victoria.

Regretfully, only a very small percentage of international visitors to Australia make the trip to Tasmania. In an attempt to strongly encourage our international tourists to cross that relatively small ribbon of water named Bass Strait and experience what I consider to be the jewel in the crown that is Australia, the Tasmanian Wildlife Tour was born.

Our Tasmanian Wildlife Tour departs from Launceston and give you a full day of experiencing and exploring Tasmanian wildlife. Tasmania: Where wildlife finds you.

Wildlife and Landscape of Tasmania

Whilst this tour is focused on showcasing the amazing Tasmanian wildlife, an added bonus is also getting to experience the beauty of Northern Tasmania, visiting historic buildings, almost English like rural landscape, exotic plants and trees, rolling farmland, native forests and beautiful seascapes.

Tasmanian Wildlife Tour Length

This is very long tour (14 to 15 hours, depending on the time of the year) and you need to be prepared for a late evening return to Launceston. Time allowance has been made to give you plenty of opportunity to buy lunch. There is an hour allowed from approximately 6:30 pm for dinner, which is prior to our last wildlife attraction of the tour. For the budget conscious, you are welcome to bring your own lunch and perhaps a picnic type dinner, which you can enjoy next to the sea or on a beach close to our last venue. Once you have booked you will be sent the full itinerary, however, if you look at the photos this will show what you will see, but the photos are not necessarily in chronological order of our itinerary.

Departure Days: Any day subject to availability.

Departure Time from Launceston: We commence picking up guests at 8:15 am from your selected location – see the booking form.

Return time to Launceston: This is will be very late evening as the penguin tour cannot commence until just prior to darkness, in early October you can expect to be back by approximately 10:00 pm. In December it will be after 11:30 pm.
