TRIP ITINERARY

Hobart to Hobart

10 Day Adventure

Day 01: Arrival Day, Hobart

Your Tasmanian journey begins with an afternoon tour of Hobart. You’ll see historic Battery Point, Salamanca Place, the Botanic Gardens, Constitution Dock, and Mt. Nelson, which affords panoramic views over Australia’s southernmost city. Enjoy the company of your Travel Director and fellow travellers this evening at a Welcome Reception and dinner.  

Meals Included: Dinner

Day 02: Hobart, Strahan

This morning you’ll head west to New Norfolk and magnificent Mt. Field National Park and take a walk through lush rainforest to the many-tiered cascade of picturesque Russell Falls. Then enjoy the scenic drive to iconic Lake St. Clair, the deepest freshwater lake in Australia, and continue through the rainforest to the coastal town of Strahan. Nestled on the shores of massive Macquarie Harbour, Strahan is the gateway to the World Heritage listed Franklin-Gordon Wild Rivers National Park. 

Meals Included: Breakfast, Dinner

Day 03: Strahan To Cradle Mountain

A highlight today is your lunch cruise on the Gordon River. You’ll be awestruck by the beauty of the dark waters. Stained amber by buttongrass tannins, they reflect the untouched wilderness that surrounds them. Stop at Sarah Island for an insight into a relic of Tasmania’s lesser-known convict history. See Hells Gates, the treacherous entrance to the harbour, and Heritage Landing, site of a 2,000-year-old Huon Pine. Travel through the old towns of Rosebery and Tullah on your way to your hotel.

Included Meals: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner

Day 04: Cradle Mountain To Smithton

This morning, marvel at the inspiring beauty of Cradle Mountain National Park. Join your Travel Director for a guided walk by Dove Lake, where you may spot Bennetts wallabies, echidnas and pademelons along the way. Travel on through rolling green hills to Table Cape for spectacular views of Bass Strait. Picturesque Stanley is in your sights as you head west. Enjoy views of the sheer-sided Stanley bluff known as ‘The Nut’ and take some time to explore. Your destination is Smithton. 

Meals Included: Breakfast, Dinner

Day 05: Smithton To Launceston

Today, enjoy a tour with a local guide of the magnificent Tarkine Wilderness region. One of Australia’s largest temperate rainforests, it boasts vast stands of myrtle, leatherwood and pine trees. En route to Launceston you’ll visit the award-winning Ashgrove Tasmanian Farm to learn about its dairy production methods and taste some samples. 

Meals Included: Breakfast

Day 06: Launceston

This morning travel through the rolling hills of the Tamar Valley to the Beaconsfield Mine and Heritage Centre. Your local expert will bring to life the mine’s extraordinary past, including the dramatic events of the 2006 rock fall and mine rescue. After taking time to discover Cataract Gorge, this afternoon is at leisure for your own exploration of Tasmania’s ‘northern capital’, Launceston. 

Meals Included: Breakfast

 

Day 07: Launceston To Bicheno

Bridestowe Lavender Estate, producer of high-quality lavender since 1922, is your first stop today. Later, visit the unique Legerwood Carved Memorial Trees site, then follow the picturesque east coast to Bicheno. This evening you might like to take an optional experience tour to see either Bicheno’s wild penguins as they emerge from the ocean, or the iconic Tasmanian Devil. 

Meals Included: Breakfast, Dinner

Day 8: Bicheno To Hobart 

Today, experience the grandeur of Freycinet National Park, taking a guided walk to the lookout at Cape Tourville that affords astonishing views across brilliant blue water, verdant forest and golden beaches. Then travel through Swansea and Orford on your way to Hobart. 

Meals Included: Breakfast

 

Day 9: Port Arthur 

Explore the Port Arthur Historic Site, taking a cruise around the Isle of the Dead and a fascinating walk with a local expert through the remains of Port Arthur’s infamous convict prison. On the drive back to Hobart, see the amazing natural rock formations of the Tasman Arch, the Devil’s Kitchen and the Blowhole. This evening, join your Travel Director and fellow travellers at a Farewell Dinner in one of Hobart’s popular restaurants. 

Meals Included: Breakfast, Dinner

Day 10: Farewell From Hobart
