"This is the perfect tour to get a taste of Tasmania. See some of the state's most iconic sights and explore stunning nature and quirky towns in just 3 days. We love how easy this trip is to fit into any itinerary!"
WHAT TO EXPECT
Immerse yourself deep in the wilderness! Journey back in time to explore Tasmanian heritage, wander through untouched forests, explore untamed rivers, rugged coastlines and admire breathtaking mountainous sights. Visit towering Cradle Mountain, the stunning Tarkine Rainforest, Launceston, and Strahan!
Day 1: Hobart - Strahan
Leave Hobart and drive through the Derwent Valley – traveling east to west across the island. You’ll see the beautiful Russell Falls, walk among the Mt Field National Park Tall Trees, and visit Australia’s deepest freshwater lake, Lake St Clair.
Later, explore the pristine Franklin-Gordon Wild River National Park and end the day in Strahan.
Day 2: Wild West Coast (breakfast)
Escape into the untouched wilderness of Tasmania’s West Coast and explore the shifting sands of Henty Dunes. These beauties stretch for 15kms along the coast and make for an epic photo.
Afterwards, continue into the Tarkine Rainforest and walk to Tasmania’s highest waterfall, Montezuma Falls. If you fancy exploring the rainforest by water, you can join the world-famous Gordon River Cruise (optional, at your own expense).
Later, after you've soaked up the stunning scenery, return to Strahan for the night.
Day 3: Cradle Mountain - Launceston (breakfast)
Start the day on a high. Sitting at around 950m above sea level is the World Heritage listed Cradle Mountain-Lake St Claire National Park, full of rugged beauty and amazing views. This is where your day begins! Choose a walk to suit you, and get exploring. There's an extensive range of tracks, and you can choose to stroll around Dove Lake or challenge yourself with a hike to Marion’s Lookout.
After soaking up the scenery, it's a short drive through Sheffield, the ‘town of murals’, to Launceston.
Day 4: Transfer to Hobart (breakfast)
This morning, you'll head through the historic Tasmanian Midlands on your way south to Hobart. Once you reach this city, this is where your tour ends.
This is a 3.5 day tour, starting in Hobart at 7.00am and finishing in Hobart at lunchtime.
