Based in Hobart, Under Down Under is a locally owned and operated Tasmanian tour operator.
Established in 1996, we specialise in small group tours of Tasmania. Our guided tours take place over multiple days with most guests spending between 5 and 10 days to experience the highlights of Tasmania. With a maximum of 24 guests per tour, our quality tour guides deliver personal and authentic Tasmanian experiences.
Our tours enable a hassle-free and eco-friendly way to experience Tasmania. We focus on visiting Tasmania’s outstanding National Parks and cultural heritage sites, while travelling with minimal impact principles.
This year, we were inducted into the Hall of Fame for Ecotourism Australia, representing 20 years of certification as an Advanced Eco-certified tour operator. We are excited to have become the first Tasmanian tour operator to do so.
Our passion is in operating exceptional and responsible tours where guests can experience Tasmania’s Wild Places, Wildlife and Wild Fun.
Our vision is to create genuine Tasmanian experiences that are respectful, responsible and exceptional, powered by great people, delivering life-long memories and friendships for everyone we meet, and we’ll have fun doing it.
Why travel with us?
Under Down Under’s relaxed and laid-back pace allows you to spend more time out of the bus than in. Our small comfortable minibuses keep our tour groups small so you will never feel crowded or lost. We offer a wide range of tour options and itineraries. Our tours offer an alternative way to travel for those wanting a no-hassle and value for money way to experience Tasmania.
Tours are adventure and environment orientated, and you will experience the wilderness, the wildlife, the history the culture and the colourful people on every tour.
At Under Down Under, we care about what matters most – you and Tasmania.

Preserving and Respecting Aboriginal Cultural Heritage
We are Respect Our Culture certified through Ecotourism Australia. On our tours you will learn about aboriginal cultural heritage and palawa’s spiritual connection to lutruwita (Tasmania). We are committed to presenting indigenous heritage honestly and respectfully.
We are serious about climate change
As a certified Climate Action Business, we take steps to reduce our carbon emissions.
Travelling on one of our modern and economical buses is one of the most environmentally friendly ways to experience Tasmania. For the carbon emissions we can’t avoid, you can reduce your carbon footprint by donating a tree (each native tree costs $4).
