Read below for the review of the walk when Great Walks did it a while back...

Last year Great Walks headed to the the Apple Isle to experience Life's An Adventure's Three Capes guided walk.

The pack-free walk featured a dramatic coastline of sea caves and towering sea stacks in pure Tasmanian wilderness. Next stop, Antarctica!

"We’ve designed this three day walk so it’s available for all ages and different level of walkers to experience this region," said Life's An Adventure managing director Mark Norek.

"It’s pack-free which means walkers won’t need to carry their clothes, food or have the burden of a heavy pack. The great thing is you can walk with as little as your water and camera."

Accommodation at Stewarts Bay Lodge (near Port Arthur) was excellent as were the two-course dinners.

Our guides Danny and Nathan offered great commentary as we walked - as well as a hot brew and choccie bikkes on the track.

Wildlife we spotted included kookaburras, eagles, pods of dolphiins, barking seals and one tiger snake - it wasn't interested in us. We even spotted a submarine floating off Stewarts Bay!

The track was well designed and signposted. Our group of walkers from NZ, all over 60 years old loved the views and the 'wow' factor including a helicopter ride at the end of the walk.

Life's An Adventure has a large choice of walks in Tasmania and I asked Mark why he loved the state so much.

"Born and bred in Tasmania, from the Sixties. I was part of the school bushwalking club, being in Scout’s and taken on frequent camping holidays with my family It seemed like when I was growing up I was walking in National Park every second weekend as a kid.

So having this privileged upbringing gave me the passion for the outdoors and Tasmania. It really is the Mecca for walking in Australia."
