Cities Visited

Hobart , Launceston , Port Arthur

  1. Day 1
    Launceston
    Welcome to Launceston! With a charming mixture of heritage buildings, a vibrant foodie scene and beautiful scenery just minutes from the city centre, Launceston is the perfect spot to start your journey. If you arrive early, maybe head to the Cataract Gorge and enjoy a slice of nature just a short walk from the city or discover one of the many museums. If you get a chance to dine in Launceston – you won’t regret it, it wasn’t named a UNESCO City of Gastronomy for nothing! After a day to explore on your own, you’ll meet your trip leader and group for a welcome meeting at 6 pm tonight. Then, get to know each other over a group dinner and toast to your upcoming adventures.

  2. Day 2
    Freycinet National Park / Swansea
    This morning, you’re in for a treat. Drive to Freycinet National Park – one of Australia’s most renowned and picturesque regions. As you enter the park, the views over Coles Bay towards what’s known as The Hazards Range are a sight to behold. When you arrive, lace up your walking shoes for a scenic circuit walk that takes you to the iconic white sands of Wineglass Bay and the lesser known, but no less stunning, Hazards Beach on the opposite side of the Freycinet Peninsula isthmus. Best to have your camera at full charge today because you’ll want to remember these views! After your walk, perhaps enjoy a refreshing swim before driving toward the coastal town of Swansea to relax for the evening. You might like to take a quiet stroll along the foreshore or stock up on supplies before joining your group and leader for a delicious dinner.
    Meals:   Breakfast   Dinner
  3. Day 3
    Maria Island / Orford
    After breakfast, jump on a ferry bound for Maria Island. A natural wonder full of history, sweeping bays and rugged cliffs sitting off the coast of Tasmania, Maria Island is an ideal destination for hiking. Walk across coastal plains, past reminders of settler history and along tracks that often have forester kangaroos and wombats lurking about. Climb the short, steep track to Fossil Cliffs and marvel at the thousands of shellfish fossils embedded in the limestone formed millions of years ago. Visit the Painted Cliffs, formed from Triassic sandstone that showcase spectacular colouration from seeping groundwater and fantastic shapes sculpted by salt-laden winds. Enjoy some time to explore Darlington township – with a fascinating history, this town was first established as a penal colony in 1825. Today, the township is part of a wildlife sanctuary, while the island itself has been declared a National Park. You’ll be lucky to spot Forester kangaroos, Cape Barren geese and the adorable waddling wombats from Flinders Island today. After a short ferry ride back to the mainland, drive to Orford where you’ll spend the night.
    Meals:   Breakfast   Dinner
  4. Day 4
    Tasman Peninsula / Port Arthur
    Fuel up on breakfast today and get ready for a super fun adventure! Drive south towards Port Arthur, soaking in the views along the way. When you arrive, you’ll take a wilderness cruise along the cliffs of the Tasman Peninsula. This three-hour cruise takes you beneath high sea cliffs at Cape Pillar, past waterfalls and deep-sea caves and along the coastline of the gorgeously diverse Tasman National Park. Along the way, look out for seals, dolphins, migrating whales and the many sea birds that call this place home – including albatross, gannets, peregrine falcons and sea eagles. Your friendly local guide will tell you where the best spots are for spotting wildlife, the history of the geology of the fascinating rock formations and if you’re lucky, a few funny anecdotes. With the wind in your hair and open-air seating for the best panoramic views, you’re sure to have an incredible afternoon. After, you’re free to visit the historic Port Arthur sites or maybe take on a couple of short walks along the peninsula.
    Meals:   Breakfast   Dinner
  5. Day 5
    Tasman Peninsula / Port Arthur
    Explore Cape Raoul this morning, on a section of the Three Capes Track. You’ll start inland, walking through the lush heath country this area is known for, heading for the coastline. As you approach, you’ll catch glimpses of the spectacular dolerite cliffs that drop dramatically into the ocean below. As the trail heads east along the striking cliff tops, you’ll descend onto the Cape Raoul plateau. Here, you’ll be rewarded with views of the swirling seas, the northern coastline and the incredible Cape Pillar (with its 300-m-high cliffs) in the distance. After some time to take it all in, you’ll walk back to the bus before driving to Port Arthur for your final night. Enjoy dinner with your group and leader and swap travel stories as you reminisce on all you have achieved over the past few days.
    Meals:   Breakfast   Dinner
  6. Day 6
    Tasman Peninsula / Hobart
    Your final walk on the Tasman Peninsula, on the Three Capes Track, is the Cape Huay walk. You’ll be treated to spectacular views as you walk through a heathland full of wildflowers on undulating tracks until you hit the coastline. The scenes of dolerite cliffs get increasingly pronounced as you near the narrow edge of the promontory. Stop by several vantage points to soak in the best of The Lanterns, Mitre Rock, The Candlestick and Totem Pole – the perfect trail to finish your adventure. After, you’ll make your way to Hobart (or nipaluna in the language of the muwinina and palawa peoples, who are the traditional owners of the land on which Hobart is now located), where your trip comes to an end. If you’d like to extend your stay, just speak to your booking agent.
