Reg and Jen starring in the Hobart city campaign

Wow! That’s a wrap on a wonderful summer of Tasmanian kayaking. Thanks to everyone who has paddled with us this summer. We have loved sharing Tassie’s beautiful coastlines with you and sharing the laughs and fun times along the way.

Reg and I recently were involved with Tourism Australia to promote our beautiful home city of Hobart. If you haven’t seen it – check it out here. Thanks to the amazing film crew from Hype TV who managed to somehow make us look OK!

In this newsletter: get in quick for your Tasmanian kayak expedition next summer as places are booking quick, good news on the Orange-bellied Parrot recovery, Next Level Kayaking opens a new local shop, staying clean in the wilderness and the Tasmanian Breath of Fresh Air Film Festival (BOFA) (free online during May).

With our tours finishing this Sunday 2nd May, we’re all now planning our winter breaks. Many of our team are heading to the mainland for some winter adventures including Reg and Jen who are planning to walk Larapinta and Tory planning to sail to Queensland!

See you on the water next summer.

Great news on the Orange-bellied Parrot

Endangered Orange-bellied Parrots (OBP) have started their migration across Bass Strait from their breeding home at Melaleuca in Southwest Tasmania to their winter grounds along Victorian and South Australian coastlines.

What a great season of success for the OBP recovery team. This summer the adult bird population reached 51 and after the breading season there were 192 birds. From only 17 adults five years ago this is a very exciting milestone. Click the link below for the full 2021 update.
