Tasmania, Australia’s island state, provides a rare opportunity to encounter unique and endemic wildlife. Renown as a prime area for marsupial spotting, Tasmania is a crucial habitat for many species, including quolls, kangaroos, wallabies, wombats and the most famous resident, the Tasmanian devil. Tasmania provides sanctuary for an abundance of birdlife, including the twelve endemic species. It is a soft-adventure tour focusing on wildlife and wilderness but offers a high level of comfort.
