About us 

Tasmanian Walking Company (TWC) has a rich history in eco-tourism, dating back to 1987 with the launch of the iconic Cradle Mountain Huts Walk. Over the following thirty years, TWC has expanded its offering to deliver a collection of outstanding guided walks including the Bay of Fires Lodge Walk, Wineglass Bay Sail Walk, Three Capes Lodge Walk, and the Bruny Island Long Weekend.
