Tour Itinerary

Much of this pristine wilderness state was - up until around 100 years ago - considered too remote to be used as much more than a penal colony. Fast-forward to now and that environment still remains pristine, but there are a few more creature comforts to make the journey an absolute pleasure. Discover immaculate UNESCO-listed forests and hike along the stunning Hazards Beach after a morning stroll to Wineglass Bay. There's plenty of time to explore Tasmania at your own pace and enjoy the vast array of food, wine, history and sights.

Day 1: Hobart - Central Plateau
Today we traverse the island from east to west. Escaping Hobart through the Derwent Valley, we walk in the land of the giants and admire the beauty of Russell Falls and Mt Field National Park. Visit Lake St Clair, Australia’s deepest freshwater lake. Enter the temperate time capsule that is the Franklin- Gordon Wild Rivers National Park. Along the way we stretch the legs on some great short walks including Donaghy’s Lookout and Franklin River. Pass through Queenstown with its intriguing eroded landscape of treeless hills. Finish the day in Strahan at the very edge of the west coast.Today's driving time approx: 324 km / 5hrs. Approx hikes include 1 60 min, 2 x 45min

Day 2: Tarkine Region
In the untouched wilderness of Tasmania’s West Coast we will explore the shifting sands of Henty Dunes, visit Ocean Beach and smell the freshest air in the world. Then we continue into the Tarkine region and walk amongst its rainforest and check out a cool waterfall while we are there. We then head back to Strahan for the night.Todays driving time approx: 150 km / 2.5 hrs. Hike approx: 3 hrs

Day 3: Cradle Mountain - Launceston
Join a guided walk or free walk on one of the many trails around Cradle Mountain, Dove and Crater Lakes. The mountain at 1545m high, is one of the favourite features in the park and is surrounded by stands of native deciduous beech, rainforest, alpine heath lands and button grass. Icy streams cascade down the mountainsides, and ancient pines are reflected in the still glacial lakes.

The itinerary was just as I expected! The guide was very good as were the accomodations

Intrepid did such a great job. I never had to worry about where I was supposed to be and it felt so good not to worry about a thing but just to enjoy myself. Our guide was extremely knowledgeable about culture and history.

Taiwan people very friendly. Accommodation were centrally located and easily accessible. Did extra activities then in brochure which was greatly.

Larus our tour guide did an excellent job and was very attentive to our needs. He is very knowledgeable and has a great sense of humor.

Our guide Tarang chandola was exceptional. Courteous, knowledgeable, organized, polite, professional and went above and beyond taking care of our needs and requests offen anticipating what that might be. He made sure we all had the best possible time and offered suggestions to meet the needs of everyone on the tour. This made the trip even more enjoyable.
