Tasmania is an incredible part of Australia and offers some stunning natural beauty to explore. From the world famous Wineglass Bay to the unique wildlife that calls this places home – it’s a world away from the mainland and somewhere you’ll never forget.

So discover everything that makes Tasmania so special on this 8 day Ultimate 8 Tour with the crew of Under Down Under – which includes everything in their 5 and 6 day packages plus some extra awesomeness!

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 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. Meet the iconic Tasmanian devil as we stop at Bonorong Wildlife Sanctuary, before a short drive back 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.

Overnight: Hobart (Breakfast)

Day 7: MONA & THE MOUNTAIN

Heading 1272m above sea level, we arrive at the summit of kunanyi/Mt Wellington to enjoy stunning views over Hobart and Southern Tasmania. From there, it’s the Organ Pipes Track for the adventurous, or a more relaxed morning with guided sightseeing of the mountain. There’s time for lunch on Hobart’s waterfront before heading to the unique Mona museum, Tasmania’s most visited tourist attraction.

Overnight: Hobart

Day 8: BRUNY ISLAND

Located at the mouth of the Derwent River, Bruny Island is home to unique wildlife (including the white Bennetts wallabies), dramatic scenery, and delicious local produce. After a short ferry ride across the D’Entrecasteaux Channel we head to the spectacular sea cliffs of Cape Bruny and the Bruny Island Lighthouse, we’ll enjoy great coastal walks and breathtaking beaches as we explore this stunning island. We end the day with local produce tastings at Bruny Island Cheese and Get Shucked Oyster Farm.
