There’s no better time to try an adventure holiday than with Tasmanian Tourism’s award winners Roaring 40ºs Kayaking and their flight partner Par Avion Wilderness Tours.

Reg and Jenny Grundy from Roaring 40ºs Kayaking knew they faced stiff competition in the Tasmanian Tourism Awards ‘Adventure Tourism’ category, as did their flight partner Shannon Wells from Par Avion in the ‘Major Tour/Transport Operator’ category.

So it was with relief and unbelievable excitement when not one, but both companies were announced as tourism winners.

Their wins mean great news for tourists who can rest assured that booking a Roaring 40ºs Kayaking holiday guarantees an award-winning experience – from start to finish.

“We use Par Avion to fly our guests in and out of the remote and spectacular south-west Tasmanian Wilderness World Heritage Area around Bathurst Harbour and Port Macquarie before beginning our 3 or 7-day Wilderness on Water kayaking expeditions,” said Jenny.

“Their scenic flight is a once in a lifetime experience and is the perfect start to one of our breathtaking wilderness kayaking tours. And now that Tourism Tasmania has publicly acknowledged the quality of what we both provide, well – even our kayaks are flying high at the moment!”

Roaring 40ºs Kayaking offer a range of kayaking options suitable for a variety of ages and experience levels, including their 2.5-hour Hobart City Paddle, full-day tours and adventurous multi-day expeditions.

“Our double sea kayaks are extremely stable and comfortable,” explained Jenny.

“Previous kayaking experience isn’t even necessary, but we do recommend a sound level of fitness for our 3 or 7-day Wilderness on Water expeditions.”
