Walk Details

BRUNY ISLAND


OVERVIEW Bruny Island is one of the most beautiful and pristine locations in Australia. This tour is jam packed including a ferry ride, a spectacular hike at Adventure Bay, a restaurant lunch and a 3 hour Wilderness Cruise. WALK

During the initial section of the climb multiple views of the Cape’s towering dolerite cliffs and Penguin Island are presented. Once at the summit, distant views of the Tasman Peninsula are offered with the ridge lines of Cape Pillar clearly visible. In migration months between June and October you may be lucky enough to spot a pod of Southern Right Whales along the section of ocean below the Cape.




MARIA ISLAND


OVERVIEW Tasmania's Maria Island is a blend of World-Heritage-listed, convict-era architecture, early 20th century industrial heritage, beautiful natural landscapes and abundant, protected wildlife. When you step onto Maria Island a sense of freedom washes over you and the magic of the Island becomes immediately apparent. There are no shops or vehicles on the Island. WALK #1

  • Grade: Two (2)
  • Distance: 4.5km circuit
  • Gradient: Gentle slope
  • Quality of path: Compacted track with a rocky descent
  • Experience: Some bushwalking experience recommended
  • Time: 1-2 hours
The Fossil Cliffs are considered one of the best examples of life 250 million years ago, with a vast number of shellfish fossils embedded in the limestone cliffs. Best at low tide when you can clamber down to the shoreline. The circuit also passes some historic buildings in Darlington and offers some nice views of Bishop and Clerk and the high sea cliffs on the east coast. WALK #2

MOUNT FIELD NATIONAL PARK


OVERVIEW Get Off The Grid in Mt Field National Park, one of Tasmania's most loved national parks. The park has a wide variety of scenic features and wildlife and offers a great range of facilities for day visitors. Few other national parks in Australia offer such a diversity in vegetation, ranging from tall swamp gum forests and massive tree ferns at the base of the mountain, through rainforest lined Lake Dobson Road, to alpine vegetation at the higher elevations.Spectacular glaciated landscapes compete for attention with cascading waterfalls, including the breathtaking, three-tiered Russell Falls - arguably one of the most impressive waterfalls in Tasmania. WALK

  • Three Falls Circuit (Mt Field National Park)
  • Grade: Two (2)
  • Distance: 6km circuit
  • Gradient: Gentle slope
  • Quality of path: Compacted track with a rocky descent
  • Experience: Some bushwalking experience recommended
  • Time: 2-3 hours
This 6km circuit takes in not only Russell Falls, but also some of the other natural features of this section of the park. Most do the circuit anticlockwise, starting with the short walk to Russell Falls, then climbing to the beautiful Horseshoe Falls. The track continues through the Tall Trees walk​, taking in some magnificent specimens of swamp gums—the world's tallest flowering plant​. Next stop on this walk is Lady Barron Falls—a pretty little cascading waterfall which is particularly scenic after rain.​ Like Russell and Horseshoe falls, Lady Barron Falls is composed of marine Permian siltstone, faced by retreating sandstone layers. All three falls provide a glimpse of the underlying geology in a heavily forested area where the geology is otherwise hidden beneath vegetation and soils. The long loop back to the visitor centre finishes with a long flight of wooden steps.

Extras 

Mortgage Protection


Mortgage protection is a simplified, quick issue insurance that is used to protect our client's greatest asset. Mortgage protection plans are designed to provide a death benefit to pay off all, or a portion of, a client's mortgage. Optional riders are available in most states, such as disability income and return of premium, which refunds all, or part of, the premium paid if the policy is unused. This product, offered by many of our carriers, can be customized to fit each client's needs and budget.




Living Benefits


Critical illness insurance is medical insurance that provides a lump-sum benefit upon diagnosis of a covered critical illness or condition. This payout helps our clients avoid the financial burden that can be created by those illnesses. Our clients have found this benefit payout useful for getting the treatment they want, spending time with their family and friends, keeping their home, and filling in the financial gaps left by most medical insurances. Individuals must qualify for critical illness coverage which is dependent on a number of factors including current health and medical history, age, and occupation.




Final Expense


The loss of a loved one in death is an emotionally difficult experience. Final expense plans are designed to remove, or offset, the financial stress that is associated with death. Our clients are able to use final expense plans to help their clients prepare for their difficult time. These plans are available in varying coverage amounts to fit a variety of budgets. Due to the diversity of our carriers, Equis agents are able to find coverage for their clients no matter what their current health status may be.




College Funding


One of the biggest concerns related to new generations of people is the rapidly rising cost of a college education. More young people are seeking a higher education today than any other previous generation. Unfortunately, with the rising costs associated with that education, they're being forced to pay with borrowed money. At Equis Financial, we view it as incredibly critical that our clients, their families, and the future generations of the world are educated on the many college funding options available today. Our financial literacy experts are here to assist clients on these options to ensure their financial futures are bright and unencumbered by student loan debt.




Retirement Planning


An annuity can be used to save for retirement, preserve funds already saved for retirement and to provide a steady stream of income during retirement. They have become a very popular choice for retirement planning, especially with the stock market volatility over the last decade. Annuities are financial contracts between an insurance company and contract owners. Payments into an annuity can be made via a lump sum, or a series of monthly payments to the insurance company. These funds will accumulate on a tax-deferred basis, which can be a tremendous advantage over time. Fixed Index Annuities provide an opportunity for growth without the risk involved with most investments. This is especially attractive to pre-retirees and retirees looking to preserve assets they have built over several decades. Many annuities offer the ability to add optional benefits such as a lifetime income rider, which gives clients a guaranteed income no matter how long they live.
