Experience Untamed Wilderness

Dec 14, 2023

Explore the remote and rugged corners of Southwest Tasmania and it’s captivating landscape and wildlife, with Faith Campbell for QANTAS Travel Insider on Onboards’ luxury expedition vessel Odalisque III

No trip is the same aboard the expedition luxury catamaran that has exclusive access to place and reaches some of the most remote parts of Australia that is wild and untouched.

“On the rugged south-west coast of Tasmania, in a place barely touched by time, there’s a luxurious new way to experience the wilderness. I sleep with the blinds up so I don’t miss any of the quiet lilac dawn. When light subsumes dark, views of Mount Rugby, russet-stained rocks and water that matches the mood of the sky compel me out of my cabin cocoon.

Over red winebraised goat with polenta one night, Acqua Pazza with risotto blanco on another, chatter drifts from Tassie people to Tassie produce and how the food is so good, it’s like we’re dining in a floating restaurant.  

With no evidence of the modern world in sight (Odalisque III is tucked away behind a bluff), the minimal impact of our expedition is obvious. Everything we arrive with, we leave with. Before setting off, I finish an apple and pocket the core.”
