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 as well as marine mammals and the only two types of egg-laying mammals in the world, echidnas and platypus. Our focus on this small group tour is to observe wildlife in the wild. It is a soft-adventure tour focusing on wildlife and wilderness, offering a high level of comfort.
