Hollybank Treetops Adventure

Treetops Adventure Tours… why walk when you can fly! Hollybank Treetops Adventure is Tasmania’s newest tourism venture. Visitors glide across the treetops in this award winning and unique forest canopy tour, gaining a bird’s-eye view of Tasmania’s beautiful forests. This fantastic adventure lasts 3 hours and is unlike any other Australian nature experience. Segway Tours… why walk when you can glide! You’ve been here before, but only in your imagination. You’re gliding on air, above the ground with a clear view of everything ahead. At the same time, you’re with the crowd in perfect sync. No obstacles. No barriers. You find yourself travelling farther and seeing more. Go fast. Go slow. Go anywhere. This is how you envisaged travel sometime in the future. But it isn’t the transportation of tomorrow. It’s Hollybank’s Segway Tours, today.

Hollybank Treetops Adventure

The tour combines the tranquillity of the forest with the adrenalin of gliding above and through a beautiful natural environment.  Guests have a unique view of the forest from above and will see the trees and forest ecology in a new light and learn about our growing and vibrant Tasmanian forests.

Gliding along wires and attached by harnesses, thrill-seekers are led by knowledgeable and highly-trained guides through the treetops and above the Pipers River.  The journey includes cable spans of between 15 metres and 400 metres, connected between tree platforms called ‘cloud stations’.  The cloud stations are constructed around the trunks of large trees, within the mid canopy level of the forest – typically at heights up to 23m above the forest floor.

Segway Tours… why walk when you can glide!

                        You’ve been here before, but only in your imagination. You’re gliding on air, above the ground with a clear view of everything ahead. At the same time, you’re with the crowd in perfect sync. No obstacles. No barriers. You find yourself travelling farther and seeing more. Go fast. Go slow. Go anywhere. This is how you envisaged travel sometime in the future.  But it isn’t the transportation of tomorrow. It’s Hollybank’s Segway Tours, today.

Join us and leave the hassle of cars and mass transport behind as you effortlessly glide on a Segway Personal Transporter (PT). With a guide to show you the basics of riding, and their local knowledge to give you a truly memorable experience, you’re in for the time of your life filled with memories that will last a lifetime.
