WHAT TO EXPECT
Escape into Tasmania's wilderness as we travel from coast to coast, admiring the wonderful treasures of the island.
Day 1: HOBART > STRAHAN
We depart from Hobart and drive through the Derwent Valley – traversing the island from east to west. You’ll admire the breathtaking Russell Falls, wander under the Mt Field National Park Tall Trees, and discover Lake St Clair, Australia’s deepest freshwater lake. Explore the unspoilt Franklin-Gordon Wild River National Park. We will spend the night in 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 will continue by exploring the Tarkine Rainforest and hike to Tasmania’s highest waterfall – Montezuma Falls. You will get the possibility to join the 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. In the National Park, you will find walks that suit all levels of hikers. Choose a track that suits you: stroll along Dove Lake or opt for a more challenging hike to Marion’s Lookout. A short drive will take us through Sheffield, the ‘town of murals’, to Launceston.
Overnight: Launceston (Breakfast)
Day 4: LAUNCESTON > BICHENO
We head to the East Coast with its stunning Bay of Fires. The perfect place for a swim, if the conditions are right. A scenic coastal drive will take 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! You can choose between two options: relaxing on the secluded beach or hiking the more demanding Mt Amos or Hazards Beach walk. Admire the iconic Tasmanian Devil as we stop at Bonorong Wildlife Sanctuary. A short drive will take us back to Hobart.
