M18811 is a new and extremely exciting nature based adventure tourism activity that has transformed tourists’ experience of the Tasmania’s natural environment. The experience combines the tranquility of natural spaces with the extreme excitement of gliding through and above the forests, with significant emphasis on interpretation and educational talks on the platforms. Safety is of paramount importance and highly trained and very experienced field guides accompany small groups of tourists during the excursion. We wholly endorse and support Tasmania’s values, ethics, and plans for the sensitive development of nature-based tourist attractions. We, in addition, promote a clearer understanding and appreciation of an area of the natural environment seldom visited by humans and communicates a powerful message of conservation, and responsible and sustainable utilization of natural resources.
Our success is based on providing local residents and visitors to Tasmania with a unique and intimate experience of Tasmania’s fauna and flora and by backing this with educational content and an exceptional level of customer service. To top it all we are committed to ensuring that all of our guests have an enormous amount of fun in a very safe environment. Utilising the magnificent old and new growth Forests in and around the Hollybank area, which is located a short drive from Launceston to the North East, we offer a unique and exhilarating adventure into this spectacular world.
The tour combines the adrenaline rush of a high wire canopy ride with an informative and highly entertaining outlook of the Forest. Visitors arriving at the center, deep in the Hollybank Eucalypt forest, are met by our expert guides, and introduced to the offering and fully briefed in all aspects of the adventure, its high safety standards and expectations for the 3 hour duration. Participants enjoy the Adventure in no more than 10 people per group, aided and guided by two highly qualified Tasmanian Canopy Tours personnel. A comprehensive overview of the forest and it’s make up is provided by each of the resident guides, most of which, are local inhabitants who have grown up in and around this extraordinary asset.
M18811 is a 7 days a week activity, as adventuring into the forest on either a bright sunny day, or an overcast, rained filled day will bring different and exciting elements to the adventure. Groups leave the center at 30 minute intervals, and the adventure lasts for approximately three hours, arriving back at the center to clear kit and enjoy refreshments and debriefing by their guides. M18811 caters for all healthy individuals aged from 3 to 90, and for those who do not wish to participate in the ride; the center is surrounded by magnificent pathways through the forest, to enjoy a leisurely walk.
