We leave Hobart and drive across the Derwent Valley, crossing the island from east to west. You’ll view the stunning Russell Falls, walk amid the tall trees of Mt Field National Park, and explore Lake St Clair, Australia’s deepest freshwater lake. Explore the beautiful Franklin-Gordon Wild River National Park before finishing the day at Strahan.
The changing sands of Henty Dunes will be explored in the unspoilt wilderness of Tasmania’s West Coast. Then we travel through the Tarkine Rainforest to Tasmania’s highest waterfall, Montezuma Falls. You can also take the world-famous Gordon River Cruise (optional, at your own expense).
The World Heritage-listed Cradle Mountain-Lake St Claire National Park is located around 950m above sea level, and you can choose a route to suit your needs. Take a leisurely stroll around Dove Lake or challenge yourself with a hike to Marion’s Lookout. A short drive takes us to Launceston through Sheffield, the “place of murals.”
We travel to Tasmania’s East Coast and the stunning Bay of Fires. If the weather cooperates, this is an excellent location for a swim. The most gorgeous coastal route in Tasmania leads you from St Helens to Bicheno, where you can see the Little Penguins in the evening (optional at your own expense and seasonal).
We get at the Wineglass Bay overlook first, beating the crowds and the heat for that postcard photo. Relax on the peaceful beach or take on the more difficult Mt Amos or Hazards Beach walks. Meet the legendary Tasmanian devil at Bonorong Wildlife Sanctuary before returning to Hobart to complete your Tasmania tour.
