Tahune Airwalk & Hastings Cave [HBA70]
Day Tour, Tahune Airwalk & Hastings Cave. Hobart, Australia.

This day trip takes you on the Tahune Forest Airwalk -a cantilevered bridge that allows you to walk through the treetops 130 feet (40 meters )above the ground – then on to the Hasting Caves for a swim in the thermal pools and a spectacular underground cave walk.

Your first major adventure for the day is to explore the Tahune Forest Airwalk. Head up the short hill to begin our walk along the Cantilever. It stretches a third of a mile (597 meters) through the treetops. Enjoy the sensation of being suspended above the Huon River with breathtaking views across the treetops and surrounding mountains. You’ll have some time to explore and enjoy nature. You can take on a longer walk (45mins) to experience the “Swinging Bridges.” With a 160 foot (50m) span across the river this is another thrilling experience and makes for fabulous photos! For a more “tame” experience there is the easy 20 minute Huon Pine Walk where these famous and unique local trees grow alongside the river with some as old as 2000 years, a delightful and enchanting short walk.

Continue your journey south to the Hastings Cave Reserve. This is a quiet, remote and spectacular area where you’ll enjoy a variety of activities and soak up the unique atmosphere. Bring your swim gear and jump into the Thermal Springs swimming pool where the water is always 79 degrees (28 degrees Celsius). Or just relax in the beautiful forest surrounds, wander along the Hot Springs Nature Trail where the warm water meets the cool water , and also home to the unique & playful Platypus, keep your eye out for this elusive local.

The Cave Tour is conducted by the National Parks expert guides. Cave temperature is always 9 degrees so bring your jacket along for this one. We head underground to explore this spectacular cave which is Australia’s largest tourist Dolomite Cave.

On return to Hobart there is opportunity to stop at the many roadside stalls and collect some delicious local produce such as Cherries, Berries, Apples, Ice-creams and also a stop for a honey tasting along the way. (fruit & produce stops are seasonal and may also vary due to changeable operating hours of the various operators.)
