Aardvark Adventures is an adventure tourism business located in Hobart, Tasmania. With over 33 years in the industry, we specialise in abseiling, white water rafting, school outdoor education programs and corporate team-building/bonding programs. Our staff are committed to the principles of best practice and are leaders in the development of new programs and safety techniques.

Aardvark Adventures is the sole operator of the world’s highest commercial abseil, the 140-metre Gordon Dam at Strathgordon. This has been listed in the Top 10 ‘Adrenaline’ activities in the world.

For those looking for less excitement, we can abseil in several other locations around Tasmania, including the beautiful Blackmans Bay coastal abseil just fifteen minutes south of Hobart. We also provide single-day white water rafting adventures to tourist groups, local and interstate schools and corporate groups. Our rafting trips take place on the Mersey River in northern Tasmania, and the Picton and Derwent Rivers in southern Tasmania.

For those who like to get dirty, we offer caving adventures in both northern and southern Tasmania. Honeycomb Cave, near Mole Creek, is a clean, pretty river cave suitable for beginners, while Loons Cave involves a 30 m abseil into a very muddy sports cave.
