Woolnorth Tour (2hrs) The Tour consists of three main elements. The first is an up-close visit to the cliff top towers of the Woolnorth Wind Farm and information centre. The second is a visit to the historic Woolnorth property homestead and historic precinct, while driving through wonderful dairy lands of the Van Diemen’s Land (VDL) Company. Finally, a visit to the breath taking Cape Grim where we see the wonderful coastline, breathe the cleanest air in the world, and witness all the islands off the NW coast of Tasmania. A Taste of Tarkine (3+hrs) These tours operate year round, as well as on weekends.This tour is for those who love nature at it best. The tour involves several of the most beautiful locations that the Tarkine has to offer; including Dip Falls, and the Trowutta Arch. The tour also includes a lovely drive through Circular Head’s rich farmlands and a visit to the Blue Hills Honey Farm. Lunch is included with this tour. A reasonable level of mobility is recommended.

Our 2+ hour tour gave us insights of this remote region, both from an indigenous and white settlement perspective. Laura was knowledgeable and informative and runs a cracking tour. Well worth doing and we will recommend to other travellers to Tasmania.
