Explore the untouched Tasmanian Wilderness World Heritage Area on this wildlife cruise along the southern coast, where we hope to see orange-bellied parrot amongst other endemics.
Travelling on board the Coral Discoverer, this ‘small cruise' experience explores South Bruny National Park, and Maria Island – where successful translocations of the healthy Tasmanian devil have led to an increase in the population size. Equipped with kayaks, zodiacs and the Explorer - a specially designed excursion vessel for landfall – there are plenty of opportunities to explore the surrounding waterways.
Visiting five national parks and two world heritage areas, we take advantage of the long summer days to explore these pristine habitats. The wildlife highlights of this trip include Bennett's wallaby, eastern quoll, wombat, brushtail possum, Tasmanian pademelon and the iconic Tasmanian devil. Aside from the rich mammal diversity, there is also an impressive array of birdlife with the rare endemic forty-spotted pardalote, the stunning pink robin, the smallest penguin species – the little penguin - and the vibrant yet endangered orange-bellied parrot.
