Itinerary

 

Local guides lead the way as you uncover the best of Tasmania, one of Australia’s most unexplored destinations. Learn the history of this fascinating island as you journey from Hobart to Port Arthur and Richmond Village. Along the way, you'll get to check out the spectacular scenery and enjoy some of Tasmania’s best chocolates!


The tour begins bright and early with pick-up from your Hobart accommodation at 7 am. Enjoy beautiful coastal views as you travel to the spectacular Tasman Peninsula, home of Australia’s highest sea cliffs. Stretch your legs and breathe in the salty morning air as you walk along the coastline. From from Pirates Bay Lookout, see the spectacular rock formations of Tasman Arch and Devil’s Kitchen

 

Next, you'll visit Port Arthur. Rumoured to be surrounded by shark-infested waters, this stunning peninsula was once one of the most terrifying prisons in Australia! Now it's home to a fascinating open air museum. The inescapable prison was home to some of the worst convicts. Embark on a Harbour Cruise around the Isle of the Dead and wander through the ruins of this harrowing penitentiary as you uncover the incredible stories of those who lived and died on these grassy shores.

 

Lighten up the afternoon with a stop-in at the awesome Federation Chocolate Factory to sample the unique flavours of these local treats, before heading to the beautiful Richmond Village. Meander through the gorgeous old streets, enjoy a quick coffee, and walk across the haunted Richmond Bridge as the guides tell ghost stories and folk tales from years ago. After a full day’s exploring, the tour heads back to Hobart, stopping at a local lookout point to capture a panoramic view of the capital city and Mt. Wellington. 

 

Optional Upgrade: Devil’s Park add-on: Reduce the amount of time you spend at Port Arthur Historic Site and add-on a trip to the Tasmanian Devil Unzoo instead! Experience a Tasmanian Devil feeding and explore this awesome wildlife park!
