Tour Overview

Discover the rugged beauty of Bruny Island on a hiking tour. Lace up your hiking boots and make the most of the walking trails and tracks at South Bruny National Park. Explore the beautiful coastline near Adventure Bay and take on the cliff top section of the trail surrounding South Cape Bay for sweeping views and wildlife-spotting opportunities.

Highlights

  • There’s no need for a map or GPS on this walking trip – with an expert local leader that knows the area inside-out, all you have to do is enjoy the journey.

  • This is the ultimate in low impact, local travel, supporting regional communities and getting right to the heart of the landscape on two feet.

  • The only thing better than the landscapes and wildlife you’ll see are the conversations you’ll have along the way, whether it’s the insights from your leader or stories from the group.

  • Escape the everyday, get active, and take the time to reconnect with nature in one of Australia’s – and the world’s – most beautiful coastal regions.

  • Find a slice of paradise in your own backyard along the Cape Queen Elizabeth walk, Labillardiere Peninsula, Fluted Cape track and on a hike to the top of Hartz Peak.

Itinerary

Expand All
Day 1: Hobart
Location: Hobart
Accommodation: Hotel
Meals Included: dinner

Welcome to your Intrepid walking adventure in the beautiful surrounds of Tasmania (lutruwita), the traditional land of the palawa (Tasmanian Aboriginal) people. Your adventure begins in Hobart (nipaluna in the language of the muwinina and palawa peoples, who are the traditional owners of the land on which Hobart is now located). You may like to take a trip to the summit of kunyanyi (Mount Wellington) for spectacular, sprawling views of the city and southern Tasmania. Grab lunch at one of the fish and chip punts along the Hobart waterfront, where local fishermen, sailors and travellers have gathered for more than 200 years, or simply go for a stroll and enjoy the fresh sea air. After the welcome meeting, join your group for an included dinner at your hotel’s restaurant.

Day 2: Bruny Island
Location: Bruny Island
Accommodation: Cottage
Meals Included: breaksfast, lunch, dinner

Set off for the 30 minute drive to Kettering where the Bruny Island vehicle ferry leaves from and let the adventures begin. The Cape Queen Elizabeth walk is the perfect introduction to Bruny Island’s white sand beaches and headlands, with spectacular views of The Neck (the isthmus between North and South Bruny Island) and Adventure Bay to capture your attention along the way. Miles Beach features dramatic rock formations which offer excellent photo opportunities. If the tide is low enough, you may be able to take the shorter and more exciting route around the coast below Mars Bluff. After the walk, it’s a short drive to your comfortable accommodation for the night.


Included Activities:
-Bruny Island - Cape Queen Elizabeth walk

Day 3: Bruny Island
Location: Bruny Island
Accommodation: Cottage
Meals Included: breaksfast, lunch, dinner

A favourite with local hikers, today’s Labillardiere Peninsula walk is regarded as one of the 60 Great Short Walks in Tasmania. This popular and varied walk is located in one of the more remote corners of Bruny Island. There are enough ups and downs to keep things interesting, but it’s not too hard and there will be plenty of time to take breaks along the way. Highlights include views of the rugged southern ranges, rocky beaches, Partridge Island and birdlife such as sea eagles, bronze-cuckoos and black cockatoos. A dense forest track running perpendicular to the coastline is a grand finale to this moderate and diverse walk.

Included Activities:
-Bruny Island - Labillardiere Peninsula walk

Day 4: Bruny Island / Dover
Location: Bruny Island / Dover
Accommodation: Cottage
Meals Included: breaksfast, lunch, dinner

The incredible coastal views from the top of the occasionally steep Fluted Capes track make this walk particularly worthwhile. If you have a fear of heights, we can coach you along the cliff-tops, or you can take the alternative 'back' route which avoids the cliff tops (and therefore also the spectacular views). Highlights include eucalypt forests filled with towering blue gums, sparkling ocean views and a historic stop at Grass Point which was used as a whaling area in the early 1800s. Take in the ever-changing scenery from the top of dolerite cliffs, including distant views of the Tasman Peninsula and Cape Pillar before taking the path inland and back to the bus. From here, you will drive to the ferry and depart Bruny for your hotel on the mainland at Dover.

Included Activities:
-Bruny Island - Grass Point & Fluted Cape walk

Day 5: Southwest National Park / Dover
Location: Southwest National Park / Dover
Accommodation: Cottage
Meals Included: breaksfast, lunch, dinner

The cliff top section of today’s trail in wild southern Tasmania is impressively remote and hauntingly beautiful, standing in stark contrast to the lush forest nearby. Incredible views of South Cape, Lion Rock and the turbulent ocean await but first you have to get here. Today’s walk is part of the South Coast Track, a challenging eight-day hike that is only suitable for experienced hikers. Accompanied by your expert leader, you'll enjoy an easier section of this famous trail, which includes flat board-walks across marshlands surrounded by lovely coastal heathland. When you reach the beach, soak up the scenery while enjoying your lunch, before making your way back to the bus.

Included Activities:
-Southwest National Park - South Cape Bay walk

Day 6: Hartz Mountains National Park / Hobart
Location: Hartz Mountains National Park / Hobart
Meals Included: breaksfast, lunch

Hartz Mountains National Park beckons for a walk to the summit of Hartz Peak. There’s timber boarding in some sections to make this hike easier and terrific views of Mt Wellington and the D’Entrecasteaux Channel. Take a quick detour to see Lake Esperance before you reach Ladies Tarn with Hartz Peak on your left. After a final climb over rocky scree, you’ll see the summit and, if the weather is clear, fantastic views in every direction. After returning to the bus, it is short drive back to Hobart where your hiking adventure comes to an end at around 5pm.

Included Activities:
-Hartz Mountains National Park - Hartz Peak walk

North American Adventure

This was my first international solo trip, but I never felt “alone” - there was always someone to go shopping, hike, or grab a quick bite with. The itinerary was a great balance between organized activities, while still allowing free time for exploring. Each location was unique and charming in its own way. Spending the night in the holy city of Moulay Idriss and wandering the winding streets of Chefchaouen were especially memorable. Thank you Mustapha and Intrepid for an incredible adventure!

Amazing Guatemala and beyond tour with Intrepid

13-Dec-2022

Did Guatemala and beyond trip in November 22. It was amazing, we were so well looked after by our guide Aura. She was very knowledgeable and during our bus trips she gave us the history of the 4 countries. The border crossings can be tricky but handled very well by our guide. We saw all the most interesting and beautiful places. The hotels were lovely comfortable colonial style. I will travel with intrepid again

Wonderful Croatian tour

02-Dec-2022

Our tour guide,Tamara, was the highlight of our Explore Croatia tour. She was knowledgeable, organized, and so kind and fun. Croatia is a beautiful country. I loved the people, the scenery, the food, the history. I hope to go back one day. Intrepid was perfect for me. There was group time and there was plenty of free time. It wasn’t a luxury tour but all of our accommodations were clean and safe. The dinner in Hvar was SO special!

The trip was amazing, everything was well planned out & there wasn't any issues. The tour guide was very friendly and made the experience fun. During the trip I didn't have to worry about safety as we were never put in harms way. I would definitely recommend & do again.

North Morocco Adventure

25-Oct-2021

Touring the beautiful North of Morocco I learned far more than I’d anticipated in this 9 day tour. Interesting sights to see, with knowledgeable local guides, this tour provides a great balance of exposure to a different culture with ample time for relaxation. Chefchaouen is an absolute highlight, & not a place many Morocco trips of this kind go to. Loved it!

Essential Morocca

21-Oct-2021

Essential Morocco was an absolute dream. Every single day had such informative walking tours and tours of local facilities. Whether it was dinner with a local family or visiting a pottery factory, I learned so much about Moroccan culture. The accommodations were safe and I felt secure the entire 11 days. This trip wouldn’t have been the same without one person. That person is Youssef. If you are coming to Morocco with Intrepid and you don’t request Youssef, you’re doing it wrong. Words cannot describe how incredible of a guide he is. There were 3 of us on our trip of 18-29 year olds and he made us all feel so welcome and safe all the time. Whether that is cracking jokes on long drives or giving us the itinerary for the next day, Youssef ensured we felt respected and seen.

Absolutely superb leader - knowledgeable. fun, safety conscious. Group of 15 travellers from 5 countries who bonded into a solid team. In addition to a fantastic itinerary, our leader’s love of karaoke made the trip unforgettable. It even inspired a song written as a tribute to him.
