Sitting on a beautiful stretch of Tasmania’s North West Coast, port city Burnie may have industrial roots, but it has since reinvented itself as a creative enclave and the state’s fourth largest city. With about 40 per cent of Tasmania designated as a World Heritage Area of national parks and reserves, you can enjoy a wide range of wilderness experiences available from this laid-back market town.
Enjoy a full day at sea to take advantage of the many activities available onboard the Queen Elizabeth.
Wave goodbye to any preconceptions you may have of Australia, as you say hello to wonderful Hobart on the southeastern coast of Tasmania. Revel in the capital’s splendid heritage, scenery and culture. Hobart has a distinctly European look and feel, and a unique local character. Capital of Australia’s Island State, with Mt. Wellington as its backdrop, it has plenty to offer the adventurous and the inquisitive.
After Sydney, Hobart is the second-oldest capital city in the country, having been established in 1804 as a penal colony. Its location in the estuary of Tasmania’s Derwent River means it is sheltered and calm, although its southern latitude means it often experiences cooler climates than on mainland Australia. Hobart may be a small city, but it is tightly packed with history, culture, art and an emerging food scene that is quickly gaining national attention.
Enjoy another full day at sea to take advantage of the many activities available onboard the Queen Elizabeth.
The third-largest Australian island boasts incredible natural beauty, with unspoiled pristine beaches and a truly unique opportunity to see an amazing range of animals up-close in their local habitat. As one would expect, there’s a healthy kangaroo presence, along with wallabies, koalas, seals, sea lions and goannas, the placid and unassuming lizards that grow up to a metre long.
Sadly, today marks the end of your Rail & Sail Holiday. Disembark your cruise at Adelaide’s Outer Harbor Passenger Terminal after breakfast.
You will be dropped off at your hotel in Adelaide at the end of your tour for your overnight stay.
The next day, enjoy a full day at leisure to explore Adelaide and South Australia.
