Tasmania’s East Coast is spectacular, and this 2-day escape is the perfect way to see a snapshot of our breathtaking eastern beaches (plus a little more!)
This 2-day takes in the highlights of Tasmania’s East Coast. Your journey includes the beautiful Bay of Fires, where the beaches are gleaming and the water inviting. Then we continue down the East Coast shoreline towards Hobart to visit a Wildlife Sanctuary where we come face to face with the Tasmanian devil as well as some others unique to Tasmanian wildlife. On day two we start at Freycinet National Park and walk to the iconic Wineglass Bay where you can relax on the secluded beach or choose the more challenging Mt Amos or Hazards Beach walk for your morning’s Freycinet experience.

Day 1: LAUNCESTON > BICHENO
We make our way to the East Coast and the beautiful Bay of Fires. If the conditions are right, this is the perfect place for a swim. Tasmania’s most scenic coastal drive takes you from St Helens to Bicheno, where we visit a wildlife sanctuary to meet the iconic Tasmanian devil. Tonight, you may want to join an evening viewing of the Little Penguins (optional at your own expense and seasonal).
Overnight: Bicheno (Breakfast)
Day 2: FREYCINET NATIONAL PARK > HOBART
An early start means we are the first to the Wineglass Bay lookout, beating the crowds and the heat for that postcard photo. Relax on the secluded beach or choose the more challenging Mt Amos or Hazards Beach walk. We continue further along the scenic east coast via the seaside towns of Swansea and Orford as we make our way to Hobart.
