  • All Day Trip: Departs Hobart at 7:00-7:30am, Monday & Thursday (Extra Friday departure time from 01 November 2023 to 30 April 2024)
  • Duration: 11 Hours (7am - 6pm).

This day trip takes you on the Tahune Forest Airwalk – a cantilevered bridge that allows you to walk through the treetops 40 metres above the ground – then on to the Hasting Caves for a swim in the thermal pools and a spectacular underground cave tour.

Sitting 50 metres above the Huon River, the Tahune Airwalk is a fun and thrilling adventure walk. After enjoying a bird’s eye view of the world, we then head underground to explore the mysterious labyrinth of caves beneath the forests of southern Tasmania.

  • Tahune Airwalk Cantilever Walk
  • Swinging Bridges Walk or Huon Pine Walk
  • Hastings Caves State Reserve
  • Hastings Cave Guided Tour
  • Thermal Springs Pool

  • The Huon Valley

Tahune Adventures & Hastings Caves are located south of Hobart. We travel through the Huon Valley, along the Huon River, through farmlands and fruit orchards surrounded by the views of the World Heritage Area.

Our first adventure for today is to explore the walks at Tahune Forest Adventures. We begin with a gentle uphill walk, ascending 104 stairs through the forest. We reach the cantilever which then extends 619 metres across the treetops. The cantilever ends at a sensational viewing area perched 50 metres above the Huon River. Enjoy the sensation of being suspended above the Huon River with breathtaking views across the treetops and surrounding World Heritage Wilderness Area.

For the keen walkers we continue our circuit walk back at ground level. The swinging bridges track takes us across the Huon River with a 100m bridge span, this is another thrilling experience and a fantastic location for some fun photos. This is shortly followed by another river crossing and another swinging bridge with a 60 metre span.

For a more “tame” experience there is the easy 20 minute Huon Pine Walk. This walk along the riverbank features the world's most accessible stand of local endemic Huon Pine trees. This is a slow growing beauty with stands found to be up to 2,500 years old!

Onwards, we continue travelling south to the Hastings Cave Reserve. This is a quiet, remote, and spectacular area where we enjoy a variety of activities and soak up the unique atmosphere. Bring your swim gear and jump into the Thermal Springs swimming pool where the water is always 28 degrees (celsius), change rooms and hot showers are available on site too. Or, just relax in the beautiful forest surrounds, wander along the Hot Springs Nature Trail where the warm water meets the cool water, stick your hand in and feel the temperature differences! These streams are also home to the unique & playful Platypus, keep your eye out for this elusive local.

Last but certainly not least, we head underground on a 45 minute cave tour conducted by the expert guides from the Hastings Caves Reserve. The cave temperature is always 9 degrees, so bring your warm jumper along for this activity. The caves are spacious with no narrow spaces, however, there are many stairs to navigate. Your cave guide will introduce you to the cave’s history, geology, fauna and unique and impressive formations.

On our return to Hobart there is opportunity to stop at the many roadside stalls and collect some delicious local produce such as Cherries, Berries, Apples, Ice-creams and also a stop for a honey tasting along the way. (fruit & produce stops are seasonal and may also vary due to changeable operating hours of the various operators.)

We return to Hobart city around 5:30-6:00pm.
