The four-day 46 km walk offers a fully guided experience of the ‘edge of the world’ Three Capes Track, located in the Tasmanian National Park, and is the newest addition to the 'Great Walks of Australia' collection.

Three Capes Lodge Walk is the fourth multi-day walk for TWC.

Brett Godfrey, Co-owner said, "Today marks an important milestone in Australia’s walking landscape and a new era of conservation-based tourism."

Andrew McEvoy, Chairman, Great Walks of Australia said, “Tasmanian Walking Company has set a new benchmark... the lodges are a reflection of the iconic and remarkable landscape and focus on ecological preservation, utilising best practice environmental technologies from around the world."

Advancements include Australia’s first recycling showers, they are a Swedish design that filters and recirculates 5 Litres of shower water and requires 80% less energy consumption.

The lodges feature 7 double/optional twin rooms with floor to ceiling windows. The lodge menus have been designed with seasonal dishes made from locally sourced ingredients.

The Relaxation Pavilion at Cape Pillar Lodge offers a spa therapist available onsite exclusively for walking guests, as well as featuring an outdoor bath.

Three Capes Lodge Walk commences with a private boat trip to Denman’s Cove. Walkers then travel along the coastal woodlands to Surveyors Cove.

Day two walkers climb Arthur’s Peak and skirt the edge of Tornado Ridge.

Day three is a walk through silver gum forest, and out to the highest sea cliffs in Australia at Cape Pillar.

The final day of the walk climbs to 483 metres above sea level to the walk’s highest peak, Mount Fortescue.
