Dan Broun is one of Tasmania's more remarkable photographers, with a deep and ongoing love of the Tarkine's ancient forests. He has allowed me to have two of his images turned into large (50cm x 100cm) canvas prints which will be on their way to your place should you chose this reward....

Hi! I’m Jarrah. I’m about to open Tasmania’s newest and most unusual guiding company called Wild Wombat Walks.

I’ve become aware that all the guided walks available on this beautiful island are very similar (If not exactly the same) tours to chronically over used and commercialised destinations.

Wild Wombat Walks breaks this mould. Based in Waratah, on the edge of the Tarkine Wild Place, we provide a bespoke service which offers a range of day and overnight walks which are very low impact and well priced.

I hope my guests will come from a diverse range of people: 8 to 80 years old, those who have heard about the Tarkine and want to visit this amazing Wild Place and people who can’t afford $4500 for a 6 day Overland Track walk.

“Bespoke” means handmade. Pick where you’d like to walk (ancient rainforests, the stunning west coast, wild buttongrass moorland, towering eucalypt forest or any combination you desire), how many days you have and an idea of your budget and WWW will do the rest.

Each season, Wild Wombat Walks will have a selection of six day walks from which to choose. For 2018, they are:

Philosopher’s Falls     3 hours return        on track, moderate fitness required;Bett’s Track        3 to 5 hours return    on (overgrown) track, high fitness req;Whyte River / Corinna 4 to 6 hours return    on track, low to moderate fitness req.;Mount Donaldson    6 to 8 hours return    on track, mod to high fit;Whyte River Tunnel    3 to 5 hours return    on track, mod to high fitMount Pearse        6 to 8 hours return    off track, high level fit.

Day walks will depart Tuesday, Thursday, Friday and Sunday every first, second and third week of the month. The price is $150 per person, with a gourmet lunch included.

 

 

 

I’m going to offer something REALLY different too. I’m going to guide a small (no more than six people) group into the wilds of The Tarkine / takayna. Off Track. No Destination. A Journey.

EVERY other walk that you can do with a guide in this vast country is from Point A to Point B. Doesn’t matter if it’s on the Larapinta Trail in the Red Centre or from Kia Ora to Windy Ridge huts on the Overland here in Tasmania. They are ALL from one defined location to another.

The Destination Free Adventure which Wild Wombat Walks is offering is NOT like the above examples.We’re going to drive just out of town – maybe 20 or 30 km – and pull over where it’s safe. From here,we’ll consult the map again, make the final decision as to which direction we’re going to be heading, we’ll load our backpacks and set off.Into The Wild. For three days, our little crew will be relying upon our skills of navigation, route finding and negotiating the vegetation as we wander deep within the Tarkine’s Ancient Forests.

These walks will depart once a month, on the Thursday of the fourth week.

There are two options: A three day and a four day journey.

The three day is $1000 per person, with all meals included.

The four day is $1250 per person, again, with all meals included.

I have a selection of hiking gear for hire.If you have your own, you’re welcome to bring it. If you need gear, please contact me and I will do my best to accommodate your requirements.
