A darting adventure through Paradise

"The perfect combination of speed, thrills and stunning scenery"

We've spent a fair bit of time in the Glenorchy/Paradise region because it's an easy to reach part of our own backyard. On this occasion, we decided to delve a bit deeper and combine taking in the scenery with a taste of adrenalin.

It's pretty well known that riding on a jet boat in 2 inches of water above a riverbed is exhilarating - and Dart River Jet certainly lived up to expectation as we roared up river, skimming the surface and hurtling around in the all iconic 360-degree-spin every few minutes.

The thing that made this trip a magic experience though has to have been the setting. We all know that this part of the world is beautiful - but venturing beside Mt Aspiring National park on the Dart River and seeing cascading waterfalls and towering mountains all around you is a sight that is truly incredible.

If you're looking for an extra bit of adventure, opt for the full day trip that combines the jet boat ride with an afternoon of 'fun yakking' - See our blog on this here.
