    HOBART TO HOBART


    Day 1: HOBART > STRAHAN

    We 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. Explore the pristine Franklin-Gordon Wild River
    National Park and end the day in Strahan.

    Overnight: Strahan

     

    Day 2: WILD WEST COAST

    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

     

    Day 3: CRADLE MOUNTAIN > LAUNCESTON

    Around 950m above sea level is the World Heritage-listed Cradle Mountain-Lake St Claire National
    Park, where you 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

     

    Day 4: LAUNCESTON > BICHENO

    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

     

    Day 5: FREYCINET NATIONAL PARK > HOBART

    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.
