Rugged Beauty With Five-Star Luxury

Nov 29, 2023

A five-day immersion with Tim Grey for Luxury Travel Magazine and On Board’s newly launched Odalisque III, takes you into the rugged wilderness of Southwest Tasmania.

The five-day wilderness experience captures the spectacular and remote areas of the World Heritage-listed South West Cape and the luxurious accommodation and hospitality of the custom-designed Odalisque III.

“This season, Pieter and his crew launched the Odalisque III, a custom-designed catamaran 24 metres long, with space for 12 to sleep as sweetly as they might in Hobart, each with personal bathrooms and a queen-sized bed. It’s an impressive vessel, with two decks available for communal lounging, and an open bar stocked with Tasmania’s best artisanal liquor. The grub is just as local: one night, our onboard chef served everyone a plate of Cape Grim hanger steak alongside fresh-caught cray, with crushed spuds from the Daily Pot and Ashgrove cream.

Although the comforts of cosmopolitan life are all available aboard the Odalisque, the real reason we’re here is to explore the stunning environment onshore. Each morning, guests don their lifejackets and pile into the dinghies, which the crew pilots ashore for leisurely strolls through the thick Gondwanan forest, where orchids grow on the side of Huon Pine.”
