Launceston to Hobart via Wineglass Bay Full-Day Excursion

1. Launceston to Hobart via Wineglass Bay Full-Day Excursion

The tour departs from Launceston ready for an action-packed day out exploring the delights and highlights of the East Coast before finishing your day in Hobart. Your drive takes you through the well-preserved Georgian townships of Evandale and Campbell Town. Make a short stop in Campbell Town where you can collect some lunch to take along for the day ahead. You will have time to discover the Convict Brick Trail that extends through the town, visit the Red Bridge, and check out the tree sculptures depicting the history of the town. After a brief stop in Campbell Town, travel to the East Coast, where you catch an amazing view of the area at the Great Oyster Bay Lookout and an opportunity to purchase some fresh oysters plucked from the beautiful surrounding waters. Once inside Freycinet National Park, begin a series of walks and exploration of the area. Walk as a group to the Wineglass Bay Lookout, a moderate uphill walk of around 45 - 60 minutes. Here the views make the walk well worth the effort! For the keen walkers, you can continue the walk down to Wineglass Bay beach (2.5 hour return walking time). Once on the beach you have time to take a swim, relax, eat your lunch or meander along the white sands. Or, if you prefer to select the shorter walking option, you can explore other areas of Freycinet with your tour guide. Visit Honeymoon Bay and the Cape Tourville Lighthouse “Great Short Walk”. The tour re-groups, ready for the onward journey to Hobart. Last but certainly not least we stop at Kate’s Berry Farm in the seaside township of Swansea. Here Kate is serving up delicious Berry Ice-creams and other sweet delights such as jams, sauces, chocolates and jellies. You will then return to your Hobart central city accommodation around 06:30 PM – 07:00 PM. (Airport drop offs around 06:00 PM – 06:30 PM – available only with arrangement at time of booking).

We were not able to get a pick up confirmation about time or location, (calls not answered emails not replied too) fortunately the hotel staff knew about the tour and told us they did indeed pick up at our hotel. So we only had to wait for about 30 minutes. Other than that it was great. The ride was broken down with several stops for snacks and restroom breaks. The walk to the overlook isn’t terrible, but it isn’t a leisurely stroll either, so bring water and wear sneakers.

Amazing Activity! Rod and Connor our guides were very knowledgable. Picked us up at the hotel in Launceston and dropped us off right in Hobart. Good way to do the transfer as you get to visit Wineglass Bay on the way.

An alternative way to travel from Launceston to Hobart

A great day-tour from Launceston to Hobart; an easy walk up to the Wineglass Lookout, however, the weather was so foggy that the wineglass bay could hardly be seen.

Our tour guide is awesome we had great time with small group
