Ex­pe­ri­ence the best of Tas­ma­nia

Outer Edge - - Australian Adventures -

Tas­ma­nia is one of Aus­tralia’s most in­trigu­ing des­ti­na­tions, with an edge to ad­ven­ture that some might only dream about. Moun­tain Bike Tas­ma­nia / Rock Climb­ing Tas­ma­nia is a guid­ing com­pany that of­fers the ex­cite­ment of this fan­tas­tic State straight to you, al­low­ing you to en­joy the true nat­u­ral ex­cite­ment Tas­ma­nia has to of­fer, ei­ther on the seat of a bike or by har­ness.

If you’re a bik­ing fa­natic or just look­ing to try some­thing new, Moun­tain Bike Tas­ma­nia pro­vides a range of moun­tain bike tours through the lo­cal bush­land and moun­tain tracks across Tas­ma­nia. You’ll fol­low amaz­ing new trail net­works that have re­cently been de­vel­oped, whether you’re plan­ning on go­ing for a few hours or a few days. From ex­plor­ing the Launceston trails of Kate Reed and Treval­lyn; to tak­ing a jour­ney along the paths of Holly­bank Moun­tain Bike Park, Derby and Mt Welling­ton; there is some­thing for ev­ery­one. Moun­tain Bike Tas­ma­nia is most fa­mous for the Ben Lomond De­scent – tak­ing you down a to­tal drop of 1,050 ver­ti­cal me­tres (mostly down­hill). Hold on and en­joy the ride. If you’re look­ing for some­thing a lit­tle less ad­ven­tur­ous, the River­side Trails is a great way to ex­plore Launceston’s water­front with a leisurely ride.

4 and 5 day op­tions for groups of up to 10 are our spe­cialty. Th­ese trips in­cor­po­rate the Launceston trails of Kate Reed and Treval­lyn as well as Holly­bank, Derby and Mt Welling­ton. As part of this ser­vice we will book your ac­com­mo­da­tion and han­dle all your trans­port with our com­fort­able van and pur­pose built MTB Trailer. Our ex­pe­ri­enced guides will ride with you to en­sure you get the most out of your time here with­out the has­sle of hav­ing to re­fer to trail maps. When Rock Climb­ing is more your style, or if you want to try both, Rock Climb­ing Tas­ma­nia of­fers you the chance to see the world class Rock Climb­ing ar­eas of Tas­ma­nia, with ex­pe­ri­ences avail­able for all types of climber, whether you’re a novice or an ex­pert. Take a day trip in Launceston’s Cataract Gorge - a nat­u­ral gem that has been the train­ing ground for lo­cal climbers for years; or if you’re more ex­pe­ri­enced, head on a multi-day ad­ven­ture to more re­mote cliffs with the gran­ite of Fr­eycinet be­ing a pop­u­lar choice. What­ever your choice, you’ll have the time of your life.

Imag­ine the feel­ing of a dream-like ex­pe­ri­ence, float­ing above the lands, look­ing down on the Earth below, in com­plete awe.

Ex­pe­ri­ence the peace and beauty of float­ing over the South Aus­tralian coun­try side as the sun is ris­ing, glanc­ing down at some of the most pic­turesque land­scapes our beau­ti­ful coun­try has to of­fer. Bal­loon­ing is one of the most breath­tak­ing things you can do in your life­time. For many it’s a dream, but it’s quite sim­ple to make it a re­al­ity.

Barossa Bal­loon Ad­ven­tures is one of the long­est run­ning and most ex­pe­ri­enced hot air bal­loon­ing com­pany in Aus­tralia. They run a num­ber of dif­fer­ent flight tours in­clud­ing flights over the Barossa Val­ley and the Mur­ray River. The Barossa Val­ley is one of the most spec­tac­u­lar win­ery re­gions in Aus­tralia, and one of Aus­tralia’s premier bal­loon­ing lo­ca­tions. Bal­loon Ad­ven­tures is one of the great­est sight­see­ing ad­ven­tures In South Aus­tralia, and has been run­ning for 30 years.

Justin Stein, your pi­lot, has the most ex­pe­ri­ence of fly­ing the Barossa Val­ley re­gion than any pi­lot in Aus­tralia. His in-depth knowl­edge of the to­pog­ra­phy and lo­calised weather means he can skil­fully choose your flight path to cap­ture the best views the Barossa has to of­fer.

The pic­turesque Lang­meil Win­ery is where your ad­ven­ture be­gins and ends. This his­toric win­ery is home to the orig­i­nal black­smith, bak­ery and butcher shop es­tab­lished in Ta­nunda in 1843. The vine­yard sur­round­ing the win­ery is be­lieved to be one of the old­est known sur­viv­ing Shi­raz vine­yards in the world.

The Barossa tour ends with a de­li­cious gourmet break­fast back at the win­ery, where you can re­lax and re­flect on the morn­ings events, whilst sip­ping Lang­meil sparkling wine while in­dulging in the best Barossa pro­duce avail­able.

If you’re plan­ning a visit to the re­gion, there’s no bet­ter way to see it, than by bal­loon.
