WHAT TO EXPECT
Come and experience Tasmania's natural beauty and fascinating history on a 6-day loop around the island.
Our experienced guides will ensure you discover all the major highlights and attractions (as well as some hidden treasures). Explore Tasmania to the fullest in a small and fun group. We will give you a taste of all the things Tas has to offer: exploring Tassie's wilderness, meeting a Tasmanian Devil, or trying out our delicious local produce and exploring our cultural and historical attractions.
Day 1: HOBART > STRAHAN
Hobart is our point of departure. Driving through the Derwent Valley, we will travel across the island, from east to west.
Admire the stunning Russell Falls, wander under the Mt Field National Park Tall Trees and visit Lake St Clair, Australia’s deepest freshwater lake. Discover the pristine Franklin-Gordon Wild River National Park. We will end this day in the harbour-side village of Strahan.
Day 2: WILD WEST COAST
In the untamed wilderness of Tasmania’s West Coast, we will conquer the shifting sands of Henty Dunes. We continue our journey into the Tarkine Rainforest and walk to Montezuma Falls, Tasmania’s highest waterfall. Or you can choose to join the world-famous Gordon River Cruise (optional + at your own expense).
Overnight: Strahan (Breakfast)
Day 3: CRADLE MOUNTAIN > LAUNCESTON
The Cradle Mountain-Lake St Claire National Park (World Heritage listed) is situated 950 m above sea level. Choose a walk at the National Park that suits you: stroll around Dove Lake or opt for a more challenging hike to Marion’s Lookout. A short drive takes us through Sheffield, the ‘town of murals’, to Launceston.
Overnight: Launceston (Breakfast)
Day 4: LAUNCESTON > BICHENO
We head towards the East Coast and its breathtaking Bay of Fires. The perfect place for a swim if the conditions are right. Tassie’s most scenic coastal drive takes you from St Helens to Bicheno. In Bicheno, you can join an evening viewing of the Little Penguins (optional + at your own expense + seasonal).
Overnight: Bicheno (Breakfast)
Day 5: FREYCINET NATIONAL PARK > HOBART
We start our day early and arrive at Wineglass Bay lookout before the big crowds. Postcard photo alert! Choose between two options: Relaxing on the secluded beach or hiking the more demanding Mt Amos or Hazards Beach walk. See the iconic Tasmanian Devil in action at Bonorong Wildlife Sanctuary. A short drive will take us back to Hobart.
Overnight: Hobart (Breakfast)
Day 6: PORT ARTHUR HISTORIC SITE
After a sneak peek at Australia’s best preserved colonial village, Richmond, we head south and absorb Tasmania’s fascinating convict past at the World Heritage listed Port Arthur Historic Site (guided walk and harbour cruise included). Learn all about the life as a convict in the restored sandstone prison buildings and preserved ruins.
