Tour Itinerary

Venture through the natural wonders of Tasmania on a six-day city and wilderness adventure from Hobart. Stay in well-equipped scenic lodges as you walk the trails in Cradle Mountain National Park, venture to the pristine shores of the Bay of Fires and Freycinet National Park and hike to Mt Amos lookout for stunning views across Wineglass Bay, discover the historic settlements of Sheffield, Launceston and Ross, and wind up at Tasmania's harbourside capital of Hobart. With artisan honey, cheese and wine tastings as well as a leader with all the local know-how, this Tasmanian adventure is full of natural delights and off-beat experiences.

Day 1: Hobart
Welcome to Hobart – the capital of Tasmania. This charming city offers a distinct blend of heritage, scenery and culture nestled between its charming sandstone buildings and calm waterfront. A walk along the waterfront also yields a great view of the mountains clasping the River Derwent, and the nearby MONA is a must see for any art aficionados. At 4 pm this afternoon, meet with your guide and fellow travellers for a brief run-down of the adventure ahead, then perhaps opt to spend the evening sampling some of Hobart’s fresh seafood at dinner with your group.

Day 2: Cradle Mountain
Depart from Hobart this morning and take a leisurely drive north, passing through film set-like Oatlands, where the history-filled streets are lined with Georgian buildings. Continue on to the historic small village of Ross, which looks like it’s been picked up and transported here directly from the British Isles. It’s a leisurely place so take your time to explore this beautifully preserved town, its bridge, former female prison, and pop into one of the local bakeries to find the best scallop pie. Skirt the northeast corner of Cradle Mountain National Park as you stop for lunch in a small statue-filled town. Continue to the Meander Valley where local apiaries produce clover honey with light citrus and vanilla flavours, so take a sample of this sweet treat at a farm, before a hike to the Tulampanga/Alum Cliffs lookout for views over the Great Western Tiers. Get some Tassie tiger history at Mole Creek’s quirky bar, then continue on to your accommodation in the heart of Cradle Valley.

Day 3: Launceston
Spend the morning exploring Cradle Mountain National Park along a number of different walking tracks. Consider hiking to Waldheim Chalet or along the Dove Lake Circuit, or for something more energetic, the hike to Marion’s Lookout is ideal. This afternoon, head out of the national park and continue to Sheffield – known for its town mural – before continuing your journey to the historic city of Launceston. In Tasmania’s second city you’ll enjoy afternoon tea at the Elder’s Centre, where you’ll have the chance to chat with Aboriginal elders and learn how, despite everything their people have suffered on this island, Tasmania’s Aboriginal culture remains. After an illuminating afternoon, head to your accommodation and a free evening in Launceston. Your leader will have all the best tips on hand.

Day 4: St Helens
After breakfast, experience the rugged beauty of Cataract Gorge, located on the edge of the city. From here you will experience the smells and tastes of Tasmania as you drop into the haze of lavender farm and try farmhouse cheese overlooking the picturesque Pyengana valley. Afterwards, drive towards to the north-eastern coast of Tasmania and the stunning Bay of Fires. Spanning over 50 kilometres, this stretch of coastline is well-known for its fiery orange boulder-clad landscape. This evening, spend the night in the town of St Helens. Oysters are a caught locally, so they're definitely recommended for dinner tonight.

Day 5: Hobart
This morning, drive south to Freycinet National Park. For those up for the challenge, try the climb to the summit of Mt Amos or join the walk to unforgettable Wineglass Bay – voted one of the world’s top 10 beaches. If time permits, stop by Devils Corner winery for a tasting of the local drop. Continue south, passing through the coastal towns of Swansea and Orford before arriving back in Hobart. This evening, perhaps join your travel crew for group dinner to toast to your Tasmanian travels.

Day 6: Hobart
With no activities planned for today, your Tasmanian adventure comes to an end after breakfast.
