Itinerary
Day 01
Tasmania

Hobart - Port Arthur - Hobart

Hotel: Please book your own accommodation in Hobart. or similar

Join us for a fun and action packed day out on the Tasman Peninsula. Explore, discover and learn with our guides as we enjoy a variety of activities, walks, sightseeing and much more.

We'll pick up today from your central Hobart hotel/hostel between 7:00am – 7:30am on an early start and head to the stunning Tasman Peninsula, home to Australia’s highest sea cliffs. Enjoy the panoramic views of the area from Pirates Bay Lookout, and along the short but spectacular Waterfall Bay Clifftop Track. This is one of Tasmania’s “Great Short Walks”, around 45 minutes, concluding at the remarkable rock formations of Tasman Arch and Devil’s Kitchen.

Next stop is the Tasmanian Devil Unzoo. We'll arrive here for the action of a Tasmanian Devil Feeding. Watch the snarling, fighting and bone crushing in a spectacle of devilish behavior during the feeding. Hand feed the wallabies and walk amongst the local fauna and flora in the charming “Unzoo” setting.

Just a short drive down the road, we'll enter the Port Arthur Historic Site. Here you have around 2.5 hours to explore the site. Your entry includes a complimentary Harbour Cruise around the Isle of the Dead and a guided walking tour with Port Arthur’s expert guides. Discover the grim and violent history of the early Australian Penal system and get a sense of the isolation experienced by the convicts in this “inescapable prison”.

On our return to Hobart, we'll make a stop at Federation Chocolate with a variety of chocolate flavors to sample. Further along we arrive in the late afternoon into historic Richmond Village. Meander the streets, stop for a coffee and walk across Australia’s oldest bridge still in use – a convict built sand-stone bridge, reported to be haunted!

Last but not least, before we re-enter Hobart we stop for a fabulous view across Hobart from a local lookout. A picturesque way to return to the city.

We'll drop you back to your Hobart CBD accommodation around 6.00pm.

Day 02
Launceston

Hobart - Freycinet National Park - Ross - Launceston

Hotel: Please book your own accommodation in Launceston. or similar

Today we'll load our luggage into our coach and depart Hobart for Launceston at 7:00am - 7:30am.

Along the way we'll travel east and then north along the coastline through the seaside towns of Orford and Swansea as we make our way to Freycinet National Park. Freycinet is one of Tasmania’s first National Parks, famous for its rich and stunning coastal landscapes. Pink granite mountains form the backdrop for secluded bays, pristine waters, white sandy beaches, local wildlife and amazing walking trails.

As we enter the Freycinet area we'll have a brief stop at the Freycinet Marine Farm for anyone interested in the local oysters fresh from the surrounding pristine waters.

Then we'll enjoy a lively walk to the Wineglass Bay Lookout, an easy but uphill walk of around 45 - 60 minutes, complete with stunning views that are well worth the effort! For the keen walkers, you can continue the walk down to Wineglass beach (2.5 hr return walking time). Once on the beach you'll free time to take a swim, relax, eat your lunch or meander along the white sands.

If you prefer to select the shorter walking option, then you can explore other areas of Freycinet with our tour guide to visit Honeymoon Bay, Sleepy Bay, and Cape Tourville Lighthouse.

Then we'll regroup and continue our journey to Launceston. Along the way we'll make a final stop at the Devils Corner Winery. This new attraction on the East Coast has amazing views, gelato, fresh seafood including oysters, and of course wine tasting. We'll make time for a stop here to take it all in before commencing the final drive back into Launceston.

We'll return to Launceston around 6.30 - 7:00pm.

Day 03
Cradle Mountain

Launceston - Cradle Mountain National Park - Launceston

Today we'll get to explore Cradle Mountain National Park, an area of world famous scenery with a huge variety of walking trails to choose from.

We'll have a short stop in Sheffield - The Town of Murals. Enjoy free time in this small and quirky village that has depicted the history of the region through murals spread out across the town. Take this opportunity to see the famous Eason's Mural while you''re here.

Then we'll head in to the national park and enjoy around 5 hours of time to spend here. We'll begin with a series of short walks to Rainforest City and Pencil Pine Falls. From here we can choose from the gentle and iconic Dove Lake Circuit an easy 2 hour walk with amazing mountain views. For the more active, we offer the chance to climb to the loftier heights of Marion’s Lookout. This walk is well rewarded with amazing 360 degree views of the surrounding World Heritage wilderness area.

Enjoy lunch by a quiet stream, watch the famous and friendly Cradle wombats in their natural habitat, or enjoy the many photographic opportunities that abound. Learn some of the local history as we visit Weindorfer’s Chalet and see the ancient King Billy Pines on Weindorfer’s Forest Walk.

On our return to Launceston, we stop and sample some local tasty products at the award winning Ashgrove Cheese Factory.

We'll drop you off at your hotel in Launceston at 7:00pm.

Tips:
