WHAT TO EXPECT

This tour departs at 2:45pm from Hobart and includes one-nights accommodation in Launceston. You will arrive in Launceston at 5:30pm. Tour activities start at 8.00 am the following day. 

Day 1: Launceston - Bay of Fires, Bicheno & East Coast
Departs Launceston at 8.00 am.

This morning, head north-east to admire the amazing memorial carvings at Legerwood.

Then, get a taste for Tassie's local produce as you sample the cheesy delights of the Pyengana Dairy Company.

In the afternoon it’s time for the highlight of the day - the stunning Bay of Fires. With some of the whitest sand and clearest water you’ll ever see, take your time to explore the beach or maybe take a swim. If you like oysters you can purchase some of the best nearby at St Helens.

In the evening head to your accommodation in the seaside town of Bicheno. As darkness falls head to the beach to see the little penguins come ashore to nest.

Overnight: Bicheno


Day 2: Bicheno - Wineglass Bay, Freycinet & Kate’s Berry Farm
This morning, you'll have the option to check out animals at East Coast Natureworld, a popular wildlife sanctuary ($20pp). Arrive at feeding time for the Tasmanian devils, wombats, kangaroos, koalas and many more animals that call the park home!

Next, it’s time to pack a picnic lunch as you set off to another Tassie icon - the sparkling waters of Wineglass Bay in Freycinet National Park. There's a tough walk to be had here, but you'll be rewarded with fantastic views from the lookout.

This afternoon, travel down the scenic Great Eastern Drive back to Hobart with a stop at Kate’s Berry Farm at Swansea. This a great afternoon tea stop with some more spectacular views.

Your tour finishes in Hobart at 6.00 pm.

Each day on tour you have the opportunity to get food from the supermarket or from cafes and restaurants. All of our hostel accommodation has kitchen facilities on site and there are options to eat out if you prefer. If you have very specific dietary needs it is advisable to get specialised items before the tour begins in Hobart or Launceston as regional areas can have limited options.

As our Lap of Tassie and Best of Tasmania tours start and finish in the same place, we’d appreciate it if you can minimise luggage by leaving some of it in your hostel/hotel in Hobart or Launceston, bringing only those things you need for the tour. Most hostels and hotels in Tasmania offer storage facilities. Please limit the luggage you bring on tour to one backpack or suitcase (maximum 20kg) and one day pack or handbag per person.

Much of Tasmania is wilderness - this is why so many people want to visit! In most national parks and world heritage areas there is no mobile phone signal and no wifi.

However many towns across Tasmania have free public wifi, including Strahan, Sheffield, Queenstown, Launceston, Port Arthur, Bicheno & Hobart. Some accommodation also has wifi. 

If you cannot be out of contact for more than a few hours, we recommend you purchase a sim for your cell or mobile phone through Telstra or Optus.

Across the tour we use dorm rooms which have 4, 6 or 8 beds in each room. You can choose female only or mixed dorm rooms.
