    We begin our journey with a visit to Australia’s best-preserved colonial village, Richmond before we
    head south to explore Tasmania’s ruthless convict past at the World Heritage listed Port Arthur
    Historic Site (guided walk and short harbour cruise included). Rich in visual history, learn of the
    chilling life as a convict in the restored sandstone prison buildings and preserved ruins.

    Overnight: Hobart



    We leave Hobart and drive through the Derwent Valley – travelling 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. Explore the pristine Franklin-Gordon Wild River
    National Park and end the day in Strahan.

    Overnight: Strahan



    In the untouched wilderness of Tasmania’s West Coast we will explore the shifting sands of Henty
    Dunes. Then we continue into the Tarkine Rainforest and walk to Tasmania’s highest waterfall –
    Montezuma Falls. Or you can choose to join the world-famous Gordon River Cruise (optional, at your
    own expense).

    Overnight: Strahan



    Around 950m above sea level is the World Heritage listed Cradle Mountain-Lake St Clair National
    Park, where you can choose a walk to suit you. With an extensive range of tracks, stroll around Dove
    Lake or challenge yourself with a hike to Marion’s Lookout. A short drive takes us through Sheffield,
    the ‘town of murals’ and then to Launceston.

    Overnight: Launceston



    We make our way to the East Coast and the beautiful Bay of Fires. If the conditions are right, this is
    the perfect place for a swim. Tasmania’s most scenic coastal drive takes you from St Helens to
    Bicheno where we meet the iconic Tasmanian devil as we stop at a wildlife sanctuary. This evening
    you may choose to join a viewing experience of the Little Penguins (optional at your own expense
    and seasonal).

    Overnight: Bicheno



    An early start means we are the first to the Wineglass Bay lookout, beating the crowds and the heat
    for that postcard photo. Relax on the secluded beach or choose the more challenging Mt Amos or
    a beach walk. We continue our journey south passing the coastal villages of Swansea and Orford
    before arriving back to Hobart.
