Full description
Departing from Hobart, escape into Tasmania's wilderness and travel coast to coast to explore and experience the best of the island on this 5-day tour. Journey to the wild and rugged West Coast for waterfalls, rainforest and wildlife. Then experience the startling change of scenery as the tour continues on through the alpine wilderness of Cradle Mountain to the white sands of the Bay of Fires. Full of famous attractions, fun and adventure, this tour will show you the best of Tasmania! Day 1: Hobart to Strahan Depart Hobart at 7:00 AM and drive through the Derwent Valley, traveling east to west across the island. You’ll see the beautiful Russell Falls, walk among the Mt Field National Park Tall Trees, and visit Australia’s deepest freshwater lake, Lake St Clair. Explore the pristine Franklin-Gordon Wild River National Park and end the day in Strahan where you will stay overnight. Day 2: Wild West Coast (B)   In the untouched wilderness of Tasmania’s West Coast, explore the shifting sands of Henty Dunes. Then, continue into the Tarkine Rainforest and walk to Tasmania’s highest waterfall Montezuma Falls. Or choose to join the world famous Gordon River Cruise (optional, at your own expense). Stay overnight at Strahan. Day 3: Cradle Mountain to Launceston (B) Around 950m above sea level is the World Heritage listed Cradle Mountain-Lake St Claire National Park, where you choose a walk to suit you. With an extensive range of tracks, stroll around Dove Lake or challenge yourself with a hike to Marion’s Lookout. A short drive takes you through Sheffield, the "town of murals", to Launceston. Stay overnight at Launceston. Day 4: Launceston to Bicheno (B) Head to the East Coast and the beautiful Bay of Fires. If the conditions are right, this is the perfect place for a swim in turquoise waters, with plenty of time to enjoy the pristine white sands and orange lichen-clad boulders. Tasmania’s most scenic coastal drive takes you from St Helens to the seaside town of Bicheno. Tonight, you may want to join an evening viewing of the Little Penguins (optional at your own expense and seasonal). Stay overnight in Bicheno. Day 5: Freycinet National Park to Hobart (B) An early start means you are the first to the Wineglass Bay lookout, beating the crowds and the heat for that postcard photo. Relax on the secluded beach or choose the more challenging Mount Amos or Hazards Beach walk. Continue further along the scenic east coast via the seaside towns of Swansea and Orford on the way to Hobart.

I saw sooo much in 5 days . Tasmania is beautiful, even with shity weather. It rained most of the time while I was there and I even had snow on the cradle mountains ( it was Nov/Summer) but it was still beautiful and kinda mysterious in it own way.

This was a real nature trip. Lots of National Parks and bush walks through lovely pristine spots and lookouts, including some lovely beaches. Definitely a trip for hikers, although the less bush-enthused have options for other activities or easier walks. The trip is suitable for all types of travellers. Our guide, KP, was wonderful - quite knowledgeable and kept us entertained the whole way around Tassie with interesting commentary and some good play lists. She made sure everyone was comfortable and fostered camaraderie between all in the group. There were good suggestions for meal and dining options, too. I opted for the motel accommodation upgrade and was worried that it might be shoddy, but I was very pleasantly surprised. The motels in Strahan and Launceston were outstanding establishments - clean, spacious and very comfortable, with all the mod cons, including lovely bathrooms and luxurious beds and pillows. The motel in Bicheno was not quite so good but it was passable.

Amazing tour with the best highlights of Tassie. A definite must-do! Great stops and good add on options offered. Fair price and we did/saw a lot! My tour guide Gareth was wonderful and since he is from Tasmania he was also very knowledgeable about the culture, landscape, animals etc of Tasmania. He was patient and kind hearted and made individuals feel cared about.
