Tour Details

Re-connect with nature and each other on the far South Coast of NSW.  Stay at the luxury Tanja Lagoon Camp surrounded by the stunning Mimosa Rocks National Park. Each morning you’ll awake to the sound of bird song, listening out for the iconic kookaburra, white-bellied sea eagles and bellbirds. Your days will start with a delicious breakfast followed by coastal hikes and leisurely river kayaks with your own private naturalist guide so you can learn about the historical, cultural and environmental features of the national parks we visit.  We’ll slow down and take the time to absorb the coastal views, admire the abundance of wildlife including eastern grey kangaroos, echidnas, wallabies and goannas. Out on the trails & rivers we’ll enjoy gourmet picnic lunches and each evening we’ll showcase some of the locally harvested, produced and chef prepared meals as well as dining at one of our local restaurants. After dinner you are welcome to create a camp fire and enjoy a hot drink under a star filled sky, maybe you’ll be lucky enough to hear the powerful owl, yellow bellied glider (both threatened species) or the chorus of frogs in the near by habitat dams. Either way, sit back, relax and enjoy getting back to nature, in luxury.
