Later, explore the pristine Franklin-Gordon Wild River National Park and end the day in Strahan.
Day 2: Wild West Coast
Escape into the untouched wilderness of Tasmania’s West Coast today and explore the shifting sands of Henty Dunes.
Afterwards, continue into the Tarkine Rainforest and walk to Tasmania’s highest waterfall – Montezuma Falls. If you're feeling adventurous, join the world-famous Gordon River Cruise (optional, at your own expense).
(Overnight Strahan, breakfast included.)
Day 3: Cradle Mountain - Launceston
Around 950m above sea level is the World Heritage listed Cradle Mountain-Lake St Claire National Park, full of rugged beauty and amazing views! With an extensive range of tracks, you can choose a walk to suit you. Stroll around Dove Lake or challenge yourself with a hike to Marion’s Lookout.
