Things to see and do

Paul & Michele, the owners of King River Rafting have lived all their life in Tasmania.  During that time they have discovered some favourite experiences that they would like to share with you.

Maria Island.  – A true gem just off the east coast of Tasmania which can be accessed by ferry from Triabunna.  If you wish to experience Maria Island in style go with our award winning friend Ian Johnston at The Maria Island Walk. 

Cradle Mountain – Cradle is great at any time of the year and offers a million different experiences.  If waterfalls are your thing then very best way to enjoy the thrill of descending a steep mountain creek is with Tim & Anto at  

If you’re finished with the cold and wet and just want to have a look around you will need some wheels.  Based in Launceston, Ian Ferrier at Mountain Bike Tasmania has all the gear and plenty of ideas to keep you busy for some time.  Queenstown has trails and scenery to die for so grab a bike from Ian and come down for a few days.  You can even explore the wild side.  

Once you have had a taste of rafting in Tasmanias wilderness with King River Rafting you may decide a ten day Franklin River journey is appealing.  Elias and Franzi at Franklin River Rafting run a safe and friendly trip.

With all this running around you will need something to wear, either to keep you warm during your adventure or for a more refined setting afterwards.  Our friends Carl & Nicola at Smitten Merino craft the finest Tasmanian wool into quality woollen fashion and thermal garments.
