Immerse yourself deep in Tasmania's west coast wilderness across three-and-a-half days.

 

Step back in time as you discover Tassie’s rich natural heritage; walk through untouched forests, explore wild rivers and rugged coastlines, see breathtaking mountainous vistas and breathe the freshest air in the world.

 

This is a rare opportunity to experience part of the world that still feels raw, rugged and utterly beautiful!

 

Highlights:

  • Russell Falls, Mt Field National Park, Franklin-Gordon National Park, Lake St Clair

  • Queenstown, Montezuma Falls, Henty Dunes, Ocean Beach

  • Tarkine Rainforest, Strahan Village, Cradle Mountain World Heritage Area

  • Advanced Eco-Certified Tour

 

Where we visit:

Day 1: Hobart > Strahan
From the tranquil Derwent Valley, we’ll journey to Mt Field NP, where we’ll walk among some of the world’s tallest flowering trees and visit the beautiful Russell Falls. Other highlights today include a stop at Lake St Clair, which is Australia’s deepest freshwater lake, and traversing the pristine Franklin-Gordon Wild River NP. Located deep within the massive Tasmanian World Heritage Area, this drive into the western wilds offers breathtaking views of rainforests and rugged mountain scenery. We stop briefly at Queenstown with its ‘moonscape’ and historic buildings, to get a taste of Tassie’s rich mining history. Our home for two nights is the harbourside village of Strahan. This beautiful and historic town is one of the most picturesque places to stay in all of Tasmania.

 

Day 2: Wild West Coast
Tasmania’s west coast offers untouched wilderness. We’ll explore the Tarkine rainforest and Tasmania’s highest waterfall, Montezuma Falls, followed by the Henty Sand Dunes. Alternatively, choose the renowned Gordon River Cruise (own cost). Later, we’ll visit Ocean Beach and breathe the freshest air in the world. Back in Strahan, our guide knows the best spot to look for platypus at dusk or dawn.

 

Day 3: Cradle Mountain > Launceston
This World Heritage Area is an alpine wilderness carved by ancient glaciers. It is a hiker’s paradise; you may wish to choose the challenging and scenic track to Marion’s Lookout, or an impressive but easier option is the magnificent Dove Lake Circuit. We’ll look for wombats at Ronny Creek, before departing Cradle Mountain to travel to Launceston via Sheffield (the Town of Murals).

 

Day 4: Launceston > Hobart

Depart Launceston and transfer through Tasmania’s rural midlands and onto Hobart where you will bid the tour group farewell.
