6 Day Tasmania Tour From $1,065

Explore Tasmania with a small group of like-minded travelers on this epic 6 day Tasmania tour. Tasmania is known for its enchanting nature, impressive wildlife, history, and for having the world’s freshest air.

This trip is designed as a loop of Tasmania, starting and finishing in Tasmania’s vibrant capital, Hobart. On top of that, you can choose the accommodation style that fits you best, from shared to private rooms in hostels and motels.

Starting off in Hobart, the Salamanca Markets and the preserved ruins of the Port Arthur Historic Site are up first. On your way back to Hobart, you will also get to witness the iconic Tasman Arch, Devil’s Kitchen, and even the tallest coastal sea cliffs in Australia which are found in the Tasman National Park. Next up, you are heading on the Great Eastern Drive, ticking Freycinet National Park with its famous Wineglass Bay and Mt Amos off your bucket list. The Bay of Fires and Cradle Mountain National Park are up next as, of course, they also cannot be missed when traveling Tasmania. Before returning to Hobart, you will get to stay in the harbourside village of Strahan from where you will discover rainforests, waterfalls, sand dunes, and breathe in the world’s freshest air at Ocean Beach. Make sure to keep an eye out for platypuses, wombats, and Tasmanian devils during this trip.

Tasmania Tour Intinerary

Day 1: SALAMANCA MARKETS, TASMANIAN DEVILS & PORT ARTHUR HISTORIC SITE

We begin by exploring the famous Salamanca Markets in Hobart/nipaluna. At this bustling outdoor market, you can buy hand-made Tasmanian goods like jewelry, art, and woodwork. Explore the local crafts on offer while enjoying the buskers and music. You’ll also want to sample a range of fresh seasonal produce and gourmet foods. As we make our way onto the Tasman Peninsula/turrakana, we’ll visit a wildlife sanctuary to meet native wildlife including Tasmanian devils. At Port Arthur Historic Site, imagine the harsh convict life of the early 1800’s as you walk amongst the preserved ruins. This open-air museum is a UNESCO World Heritage Site and represents Australia’s best preserved convict settlement. Today we’ll also experience the dramatic coastal scenery of Tasman National Park which has the tallest coastal sea cliffs in Australia. You’ll see the geological wonders of Tasman Arch and the Devil’s Kitchen before returning to Hobart where you can enjoy a night exploring the city at your leisure.
Overnight: Hobart

Day 2: FREYCINET NATIONAL PARK > BICHENO

Departing Hobart along the Great Eastern Drive, our destination is Freycinet National Park on the East Coast. This fabulous park has pristine beaches and a stunning pink granite mountain range known as The Hazards. Climb to the summit of Mt Amos or join the walk to Wineglass Bay lookout. Or you may wish to continue to Wineglass Bay beach to walk along the edge of the translucent waters. At Cape Tourville Lighthouse you’ll love the panoramic vistas across the coast. We’ll spend the night in the coastal town of Bicheno, where little penguins emerge from the sea at night time.
Overnight: Bicheno

Day 3: BAY OF FIRES > LAUNCESTON

Today we’ll continue to explore the captivating East Coast of Tasmania. The Bay of Fires/larapuna is a place with profound cultural significance to Tasmanian aboriginal people (palawa). You’ll love walking along the long stretches of dazzling white sands with its shimmering turquoise waters and lichen clad boulders. We’ll enjoy lunch in the fishing town of St Helens then make our way to Launceston via the lush Northeast region of Tasmania. One of the terrific experiences along this route include seeing the giant tree ferns at St Columba Falls. Lastly, we’ll check out the lovely Cataract Gorge in the heart of Launceston before settling in for the night in Tasmania’s second largest city.
Overnight: Launceston

Day 4: CRADLE MOUNTAIN > STRAHAN

Leaving Launceston, a short drive takes us through Sheffield, the ‘Town of Murals’ and then onto Tasmania’s most famous alpine national park, Cradle Mountain. Cradle is home to an abundance of wildlife such as wombats and echidnas. Choose from a variety of incredible walks; the Dove Lake circuit is likely the best short walk in Tasmania, while the challenging walk to the summit of Marion’s Lookout offers unmatched views of the glacial carved wilderness. Easier options today include a stroll along Ronny Creek or down to the Boatshed. Departing Cradle, we travel to the harbourside village of Strahan on the West Coast, our accommodation for the next two nights.
Overnight: Strahan

Day 5: WILD WEST COAST

Today’s playground is the untouched wilderness of Tasmania’s West Coast. Walk in the rainforests of the Tarkine/Takayna to reach Tasmania’s highest waterfall, Montezuma Falls. You’ll also explore the enormous Henty Sand Dunes which stretch for kilometers along the coast. Alternatively, today you have the option of cruising the wildly beautiful Gordon River (own cost) which ventures deep into the World Heritage Area. Later at the windswept Ocean Beach, you can breathe the world’s freshest air. Back in Strahan, our guide can help you look for platypus.
Overnight: Strahan

Day 6: STRAHAN > HOBART

Buttongrass plains, mountains, waterfalls, rainforest, and pioneer history are some of today’s highlights. Departing Strahan, we’ll visit the moonscape of Queenstown, a mining town with a fascinating history. We then travel through the Tasmanian World Heritage Area via the pristine Franklin-Gordon Wild River National Park. We’ll also stop at Australia’s deepest freshwater lake, Lake St Clair. Our final walk for the tour will be enjoyed at Mt Field National Park, to stroll beneath some of the world’s tallest trees and observe the beautiful Russell Falls. We continue our drive through the Derwent Valley, returning to Hobart and bidding farewell to your travel companions and your incredible adventure.
