Unique Tassie Tours focuses on sourcing products from local providers in the South East of Tasmania. Whilst touring with Unique Tassie Tours guests will have the opportunity when in season to pick their own fruit from local farmers and enjoy their pickings with afternoon tea. Oysters, wine and lunch produce is all sourced locally and this enables businesses to employ local staff and enable the community to benefit from the flow on effects this creates. The Unique Tassie Tours logo is a local Tasmania Devil named “Murf”. Murf was raised by a colleague and was part of a project to establish a breeding stock of devils that are free from the devil facial tumour disease. Money will be raised to give to this program and goes directly to the owner of the devils to provide food and improve housing for the devils and local wildlife.
Guests of Unique Tassie Tours are encouraged to view wildlife and flora within our scope of operations to maintain minimal impact on their environment. Guests are only allowed on formed tracks and pathways and will be fully escorted by a guide. All produce entering national parks is removed by the guides. This eliminates the possibility of wildlife becoming reliant on waste left by visitors. Up close and personal viewing of wildlife will be conducted at the Tasmanian Devil and Conservation Park. This benefits the local business, economy and wildlife within our area of operations. Unique Tassie Tours has a strict policy of reducing the use of paper within our business. We believe in using electronic means to send invoices to guests, saving documents on “ I books” to reduce printing.
Due to our focus on customer service guests will be notified prior to travel of impending travel conditions and what will be required during their tour. A majority of Tasmania’s attractions date back to the early 1800’s and the integration of European settlers with Aborigines. The majority of this interaction is not relayed to visitors but is a pivotal part of the development of Tasmania. Unique Tassie Tours will be taking our guests on a journey that is pre Port Arthur. An example of this will be informing guests how the local Aborigines utilised wildfire to maintain a healthy eco system that resulted in sustainability for inhabitants, flora and fauna. We will then discuss how this concept was misconceived by settlers and as a result this important practice was lost and produced irreversible changes to the environment. Unique Tassie Tours will be visiting attractions that are continually being developed and enhanced to benefit visitors to our wonderful state of Tasmania. These attractions will vary from large scale entities ( Port Arthur Historic Site) to small scale operations that may include a farmer that is producing market produce.
