Starts: Hobart 7.00am
Finishes: Hobart 5.30pm

Day 1: HOBART > STRAHAN
We leave Hobart and drive through the Derwent Valley – travelling east to west across the island.
You’ll see the beautiful Russell Falls, walk among the Mt Field National Park Tall Trees, and visit
Australia’s deepest freshwater lake, Lake St Clair. Explore the pristine Franklin-Gordon Wild River
National Park and end the day in Strahan.
Overnight: Strahan

Day 2: WILD WEST COAST
In the untouched wilderness of Tasmania’s West Coast we will explore the shifting sands of Henty
Dunes. Then we continue into the Tarkine Rainforest and walk to Tasmania’s highest waterfall –
Montezuma Falls. Or you can choose to join the world famous Gordon River Cruise (optional, at your
own expense).
Overnight: Strahan (Breakfast)

Day 3: CRADLE MOUNTAIN > LAUNCESTON
Around 950m above sea level is the World Heritage listed Cradle Mountain-Lake St Claire National
Park, where you 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. A short drive takes us through Sheffield,
the ‘town of murals’, to Launceston.
Overnight: Launceston (Breakfast)

Day 4: LAUNCESTON > BICHENO
We make our way to the East Coast and the beautiful Bay of Fires. If the conditions are right, this is the perfect place for a swim. Tasmania’s most scenic coastal drive takes you from St Helens to Bicheno, where we visit a wildlife sanctuary to meet the iconic Tasmanian devil. Tonight, you may want to join an evening viewing of the Little Penguins (optional at your own expense and seasonal).
Overnight: Bicheno (Breakfast)

Day 5: FREYCINET NATIONAL PARK > HOBART
An early start means we are the first to the Wineglass Bay lookout, beating the crowds and the heat for that postcard photo. Relax on the secluded beach or choose the more challenging Mt Amos or Hazards Beach walk. We continue further along the scenic east coast via the seaside towns of Swansea and Orford as we make our way to Hobart.
Overnight: Hobart (Breakfast)

Day 6: PORT ARTHUR HISTORIC SITE
After a quick look at Australia’s best preserved colonial village, Richmond, we head south to explore
Tasmania’s ruthless convict past at the World Heritage listed Port Arthur Historic Site (guided walk
and harbour cruise included). Rich in visual history, learn of the chilling life as a convict in the
restored sandstone prison buildings and preserved ruins.
