WHAT TO EXPECT

Make the most of your East Tassie trip. Combine the Bruny Island and Port Arthur day trips with an East Coast adventure to create an experience like no other!

Itinerary:

Day 1: 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: Bicheno


Day 2: 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.

Overnight: Hobart


Day 3: Port Arthur
From Hobart, you'll take a short 25-minute drive to the historic village of Richmond. This spot boasts fine colonial buildings and the oldest bridge in Australia.

After looking around, continue on to the Tasman Peninsula, stopping to enjoy the view from Pirates Bay Lookout. Check out Doo Town, gaze out over Tasman Arch and see what’s cooking at the Devil’s Kitchen.

Then, walking on to Waterfall Bay you’ll enjoy spectacular views from the clifftops.

Next up is the highlight of the day, the opportunity to check out Tasmania’s convict heritage at Port Arthur. You have plenty of time to see the sights on a guided walking tour and harbour cruise. Hear about the harsh conditions that the earliest European residents of Tasmania experienced after being sent across the world.

After hearing all sorts of stories from the past and exploring the fascinating old buildings, it's time to head back to Hobart.

Overnight: Hobart


Day 4: Bruny Island
Spectacular Bruny Island is a feast for the senses. After a short ferry ride from Kettering, a private tasting at Bruny Island Cheese awaits!

Afterwards, heading south, you'll walk up the steps to the Truganini lookout at the Neck, with incredible 360-degree views.

Continuing on, look for Bruny’s famous white wallabies and watch the surf roll in during lunch at Adventure Bay. 

Later, choose between the Bruny Island Cruise (extra cost) or the beautiful Fluted Cape walk. Local oysters can be purchased on the drive back to the ferry.

Your Tasmania tour ends in Hobart at 6.00 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.

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.

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.

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.
