Kea Basin is a truly unique and remarkable landscape. It is in the alpine zone and lies above the Beech forest on the slopes of Mt Earnslaw. There are very many wild and wonderful waterfalls, bluffs and terraces up there. Not many people know about it and access is limited to very low visitor numbers, so it will always be special.

ITINERARY

Day One

Arrive at The Great Glenorchy Alpine Base Camp. Meet the team, enjoy a briefing session with gear check, and relax before your first night.

Day Two

– Up early and you will head off in our Land Rover Defender vehicles on a 4×4 trip along the remote and spectacular Rees River valley. The many river crossings are great fun and you will stop along the way for refreshments and to take in the amazing scenery in this very remote area.

 – Once on the eastern edge of Lennox falls, Mt Earnslaw, you will commence your hike to Kea Basin. It’s a 2-3 hour tramp and well worth the ascent and with a low to moderate fitness requirement, you will be able to really enjoy every minute of it. Kea Basin is beautiful and this spectacular alpine landscape is littered with many wonderful waterfalls. 

 – Picnic lunch and then back to the waiting 4×4 vehicles that will ferry you all the way back to The Great Glenorchy Alpine Base camp. Cleanup, sauna, drink fireside, debrief, eat and enjoy your achievements.
