What to Expect
Tasmania offers pristine wilderness, exceptional hiking and jaw-droppingly beautiful beaches.
There’s plenty to like on this island state, and this unforgettable 6-day guided trip, starting and finishing in Hobart, does a pretty good job of seeing it all! Explore the exceptional East Coast including the Bay of Fires and Freycinet National Park, get your hike on in Cradle Mountain, and taste the wilds of the West Coast.
This small-group, nature-based adventure truly showcases the best of Tassie!
Day 1: Hobart to Bicheno
Start your adventure exploring the famous Salamanca Markets (Saturdays only) in Hobart before making your way up kunanyi/Mount Wellington to admire awesome views over Hobart. After stopping by the historic village of Richmond, you’ll travel north along the scenic Great Eastern Drive, passing through the coastal towns of Orford and Swansea. Visit a wildlife sanctuary for a chance to see some of Tasmania’s native wildlife up close, including Tasmanian Devils. Continue late in the day to Bicheno where tonight you can take an optional guided tour (own cost) for a closer look at the life of the Little Penguin colony.
Day 2: Freycinet National Park
Enjoy your morning experiencing the beautiful Freycinet National Park, home to a wild domain of sublime beaches, whose powder-white sands are lapped by translucent waters. For those seeking a challenge, try the climb to the summit of Mt Amos or join the walk to Wineglass Bay, voted one of the world’s top 10 beaches. There are other free walking choices available, including the path up to Cape Tourville Lighthouse, where you can enjoy panoramic vistas across the coast. Afterwards, return to Bicheno for the night, where you can perhaps take the opportunity to indulge in a delicious seafood dinner in this fishing town, sampling dishes from crayfish to abalone.
Day 3: Bicheno to Launceston
Continue along the East Coast, stopping at the Bay of Fires. This area is remarkable for its beauty, wildlife, and cultural history, with long stretches of dazzling white beaches, shimmering turquoise waters, coastal heath and woodlands that abound with wildlife. On the way to Launceston, explore more of the lush Northeast of Tasmania, including the giant tree ferns at St Columba Falls and Pyengana’s farmhouse artisan cheese. Lastly, you will check out the lovely Cataract Gorge in the heart of the city before settling in for the night in Tasmania’s second-largest city.
Day 4: Launceston to Cradle Mountain to Strahan
Leaving Launceston, a short drive takes you through Sheffield, the ‘Town of Murals’ and then onto Cradle Mountain. Around 950m above sea level is the World Heritage-listed Cradle Mountain-Lake St Clair National Park, where you can choose a walk to suit you. With an extensive range of tracks, stroll around Dove Lake or challenge yourself with a hike to Marion’s Lookout. Finish the day in the harbourside village of Strahan, where you will stay overnight.
Day 5: West Coast
In the untouched wilderness of Tasmania’s West Coast, you will explore the shifting sands of Henty Dunes, visit Ocean Beach and breathe the freshest air in the world. Then continue into the Tarkine region and walk among the rainforest, checking out Tassie’s highest waterfall (Montezuma Falls) before returning to Strahan. Alternatively, today you can opt to experience the breathtaking wilderness via the fabulous Gordon River Cruise (own cost).
Day 6: Strahan to Hobart
Leaving Strahan, you'll visit the moonscape of Queenstown before exploring the pristine Franklin-Gordon Wild River National Park, followed by a visit to Australia’s deepest freshwater lake, Lake St Clair. On your way to Hobart, stop at Mt Field National Park, to walk among the tall trees and observe the beautiful Russell Falls. Continue the drive through the Derwent Valley travelling west to east across the island, returning to Hobart and bidding farewell to your travel companions and your incredible adventure.
