Depart Hobart/nipaluna and venture north along the Great Eastern Drive. The highlight today is Tassie’s East Coast jewel, Freycinet National Park. Walk to the famous Wineglass Bay Lookout or down to the curved white sand beach. Or, you may want to try the challenging Mt Amos walk. The views of the pink granite Hazards mountains from Cape Tourville will complete your Freycinet experience. Tonight we’ll stay in the charming coastal town of Bicheno, where little penguins emerge from the sea at night time.
From Bicheno we travel north to the incredible Bay of Fires/larapuna. This is a place of pristine beauty and significance to Tasmanian aboriginal people/palawa. Explore the coastline of white sands, vivid orange boulders and clear waters. After stopping for lunch in St Helens we’ll head inland to see the giant tree ferns at St Columba Falls. Arriving in Launceston, we’ll visit the stunning Cataract Gorge and look for wallabies, before settling into our accommodations.
The alpine landscapes within Cradle Mountain National Park are a hiker’s dream come true. Choose a challenging walk to Marion’s Lookout or enjoy the less strenuous loop around glacial-carved Dove Lake. We’ll then look for wombats at Ronny Creek. Tonight’s destination is the picturesque harbourside village of Strahan, gateway to the rainforests of the World Heritage Area.
First, we’ll take you to discover the natural beauty of the temperate Tarkine Rainforest/takayna where we’ll hike to Tasmania’s highest waterfall, Montezuma Falls. At the coast we’ll explore the expansive Henty Sand Dunes. Or today you can choose to join an optional cruise on the magical Gordon River (own cost). Later in the afternoon, we can breathe the world’s freshest air at Ocean Beach. Back in Strahan, our guide can help you search for platypus.
Our journey through the Western Wilds eventually leads us back to Hobart. Along the way we’ll stop at Queenstown to glimpse Tassie’s mining history before traversing the Franklin-Gordon Wild Rivers National Park. You’ll stand on the shores of Australia’s deepest freshwater lake, Lake St Clair. At Mt Field National Park we’ll walk among some of the world’s tallest flowering trees and admire the wonderful Russell Falls before completing your tour of Tasmania/lutruwita this afternoon.
