Seakayaking the southwest wilderness

Seakayaking the southwest wilderness

Kayaking bliss
By MATT NEWTON | The twin waters of Port Davey and Bathurst Harbour in Tasmania’s remote South West are together an expanse of water and endless inlets twice the size of Sydney Harbour. They are in the southwestern corner of over one million acres of wilderness. It is a truly spectacular place, with epic scenery and a feeling of isolation that is hard to match.

Walking on water is the way sea kayaking trips to Bathurst Harbour are described. Like bush walking without having to carry anything and, best of all, no hills.

A sea kayaking trip to Tasmania’s South West starts with a 45-minute light aircraft flight from Hobart. Once leaving the airport, Tasmania’s capital city quickly gives way to large tracks of forest and some of the most rugged alpine scenery in Australia.
