Full description
Day 1: Hobart to Strahan Leave Hobart and drive through the Derwent Valley, traveling east to west across the island. See the beautiful Russell Falls, walk among the Mount 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 spend the night. Day 2: Wild West Coast 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 you can choose to join the world-famous Gordon River Cruise (optional, at your own expense). Return to your accommodation in Strahan in the evening. Day 3: Cradle Mountain to Launceston Around 950m above sea level, discover the World Heritage-listed Cradle Mountain-Lake St Clair National Park, where you can 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. Afterward, take a short drive through Sheffield, the ‘town of murals’ and then to Launceston where you will spend the night. Day 4: Launceston to Bicheno Today make your way to the East Coast and the beautiful Bay of Fires. If the conditions are right, this is the perfect place for a swim. Tasmania’s most scenic coastal drive takes you from St Helens to Bicheno where you will meet the iconic Tasmanian devil as you stop at a wildlife sanctuary. This evening you may choose to join a viewing experience of the Little Penguins (optional at your own expense and seasonal). Spend the night in Bicheno. Day 5: Freycinet National Park to Hobart 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 a beach walk. Continue your journey south passing the coastal villages of Swansea and Orford before arriving at your accommodation in Hobart. Day 6: Bruny Island Journey south of Hobart to Kettering and board the vehicular ferry to cross the D’Entrecasteaux Channel to North Bruny Island. On the island, stop at "The Neck", home to the Truganini Lookout and its spectacular 360-degree panoramic views of the Bruny Island coastline. Also, visit South Bruny Island and Adventure Bay, look for some local wildlife (including the white Bennetts wallabies) and sample some fresh local produce including oysters and cheese before returning to your accommodation in Hobart. Day 7: Port Arthur Historic Site Start with a visit to Australia’s best-preserved colonial village, Richmond, before heading south to explore Tasmania’s ruthless convict past at the World Heritage-listed Port Arthur Historic Site (guided walk and short harbor cruise included). Rich in visual history, learn of the chilling life as a convict in the restored sandstone prison buildings and preserved ruins.
