Tasmania Tour Intinerary

Day 1: HOBART > STRAHAN

Our tour of Tasmania/lutruwita takes us first to the wild West Coast, with a few beautiful short walks throughout the day. Today we’ll experience three National Parks, beginning with Mount Field and its wondrous Russell Falls and some of the world’s tallest trees. Stand on the shore of Lake St Clair (Australia’s deepest freshwater lake) which forms part of the Cradle Mountain–Lake St Clair National Park. As we travel west, you’ll be immersed in magnificent wild scenery, flanked by mountains, buttongrass plains and rainforests of the Franklin-Gordon Wild Rivers National Park. We’ll stop at Queenstown to learn about Tasmania’s pioneer history, before settling into our accommodations in the harbourside village of Strahan. We spend two nights in Strahan and with luck our guides can help you find platypus.
Overnight: Strahan

Day 2: WILD WEST COAST

Walk to Montezuma Falls, hidden within the ancient temperate rainforests of the Tarkine/takayna. We’ll return to the coast and explore the enormous Henty Sand Dunes. Or, today you might like to enjoy the optional Gordon River Cruise (own cost) which explores Macquarie Harbour and into the World Heritage Area. Later, we’ll check out the windswept Ocean Beach, Tasmania’s longest stretch of sand, and breathe the freshest air in the world.
Overnight: Strahan

Day 3: CRADLE MOUNTAIN > LAUNCESTON

Today you’ll see why Cradle Mountain National Park is a world-class hiking destination. Deep within the Tasmanian Wilderness World Heritage Area, this glacial carved landscape is filled with wildlife. We’ll look for wombats at Ronny Creek, then you can choose from several walking options to explore the alpine environment. Will you climb to the summit of Marion’s Lookout? Or perhaps you’ll choose to walk along the magical Dove Lake Circuit. We’ll then depart for Sheffield, the Town of Murals, before reaching one of Australia’s oldest cities, Launceston.
Overnight: Launceston

Day 4: LAUNCESTON > BICHENO

Explore Launceston’s beautiful Cataract Gorge. We’ll enjoy a short walk within this nature reserve only minutes from the city centre and keep our eye out for wallabies. Then, we’ll take a scenic drive to the East Coast via St Columba Falls to see gigantic tree ferns. After lunch at St Helens, it’s time to walk along Tasmania’s best beaches, including the pristine sands and turquoise waters of the Bay of Fires/larapuna. Learn about the cultural significance of larapuna for Tasmanian aboriginal people/palawa. We will take our time enjoying the breathtaking coastal scenery before making our way down to the relaxed township of Bicheno, home of the little penguin.
Overnight: Bicheno

Day 5: FREYCINET NATIONAL PARK > HOBART

Today is dedicated to exploring the exquisite Freycinet National Park. Relax on a powder white-sand beach, walk to the Wineglass Bay beach or lookout.

From the summit you can enjoy panoramic vistas over Freycinet’s pink granite mountains, secluded coves, and coastal bushlands.
