Why do we love this

We think the West-East combo on this tour is pretty cool. You get to see the best of both worlds! 

WHAT TO EXPECT

Travel from the West to the East on this epic Tassie tour. We love the awesome combination of wild beauty and sparkling bays.

Itinerary:

Day 1: Day 1: Mount Field, Russell Falls & Lake St Clair
Pickups from Hobart accommodation available.

Your tour begins with the pristine world heritage wilderness of Mount Field National Park. See beautiful Russell Falls and walk among some of the tallest trees on earth! As you go, look out for the cute Tasmanian Pademelons hopping around, they’re unique to Tasmania.

Later stop for lunch with a view at Australia’s deepest lake, Lake St Clair. If you’re lucky you might even see a platypus.

Then, head to Donaghy’s Hill for more incredible views that stretch in all directions. See the quartzite peak of Frenchmans Cap, and iconic Franklin River winding its way through the valley below.

Overnight: Jump Holiday House, Tullah (dorms and private rooms with shared bathrooms) or Tullah Lakeside Lodge (Private rooms with ensuite bathrooms).


Day 2: Montezuma Falls, Strahan & Henty Dunes
Your day starts with a walk through lush rainforest along the path of an old railway. Your destination? Montezuma Falls - Tasmania’s highest waterfall.

For lunch, stop at the beautiful fishing town of Strahan. Immerse yourself in the beauty and history of what was one of the most remote outposts of the British Empire.

Then, it's just a short drive to Henty Dunes where you'll spend the rest of the day. Climb to the top for a wonderful view across the Southern Ocean and an awesome photo experience!

Overnight: Jump Holiday House, Tullah (dorms and private rooms with shared bathrooms) or Tullah Lakeside Lodge (Private rooms with ensuite bathrooms).


Day 3: Cradle Mountain, Sheffield & Cataract Gorge
This morning it’s all about Cradle Mountain! With the whole morning here, you'll have the chance to choose from a range of hikes and activities.  No matter what, this is an adventure you'll never forget. 

You'll have worked up an appetite - so stop for lunch in Sheffield - the town of murals. Artists from across the world have contributed artwork to this cute little town - look for the alpaca man! There are some great photos to be snapped here.

This afternoon, taste the delights of 41 Degrees Salmon. 

Later, it's onto Launceston. Head to Cataract Gorge, a stunning natural attraction in the heart of the city that's worth a look!

Overnight - Launceston Backpackers (all accommodation types).


Day 4: 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: Seaview at Bicheno  


Day 5: 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 6.30 pm.

Yes, we recommend you arrive at least the day before and stay a night in the city of departure before your tour. We can arrange a pickup at your accommodation or nearby.

If you must fly in on the day the tour begins you will require a special airport transfer to join up with the tour group. This costs $25 per person and is only possible for flights arriving before 8.00 am. We do not recommend this as delays in your flight may result in you missing your tour. No refund is payable if you fail to arrive on time for your tour.

1

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.

1

Comfortable shoes to walk in, warm clothes for the mountains, light clothes for the beach, a rain jacket or umbrella, a towel and bathroom items (soap, shampoo etc). You do not need to bring a sleeping bag, sheets and blankets are provided.

1

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.

1

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.

1

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

Yes! Please chat with us to discuss the schedule options. There is a $40 transfer fee payable on board.
