Wonderful transportation though the land of Piners and Miners.

Explore Tasmania’s west coast with the most unique and diversified tour of the state, starting in Strahan and winding through the fascinating world of Piners and Miners.

The most amazing thing, besides the wonderful views and natural flavour, is that you’re transported in a number of ways: on the West Coast Wilderness Railway track on board a Landrover turned into see-through rail car; by 4WD to the Bird River Track; then on foot along a secluded track to Kelly Basin, a historic mining site with old ruins waiting to be explored.

Watch the birds, study the stunning landscape, take amazing pictures, walk through history and heritage, then finish the adventure with a luxurious trip on a cruise boat back to Strahan. A lunch stop includes a picnic with the best Tasmanian food, wine and freshly caught seafood.

This experience is a real one-of-a-kind in the world: a historic trip into a truly untouched region of the Tasmanian World Heritage Area.
