Day 1 – Homeport to Hobart (D)

Your Tasmanian Wonders holiday begins with a flight to Hobart, the largest city in Tasmania. You will be met on arrival at Hobart Airport and taken to your hotel.

Your Tasmanian holiday begins with an afternoon tour of Hobart. You’ll see historic Battery Point, Salamanca Place, the Botanic Gardens, Constitution Dock, the destination of yachts participating in the Sydney to Hobart race each year, and Mt. Nelson, which affords panoramic views over Australia’s southernmost city. Enjoy the company of your Travel Director and fellow travellers this evening at a Welcome Reception and dinner.

❱ Hotel stay: Wrest Point (1 night)

Day 2 – Hobart to Strahan via Mt Field National Park (BD)

This morning, you’ll head west to New Norfolk and magnificent Mt. Field National Park. Here, you’ll take a walk through lush rainforest to the many-tiered cascade of picturesque Russell Falls. Then enjoy the scenic drive to iconic Lake St. Clair, the deepest freshwater lake in Australia, and continue through the rainforest to the coastal town of Strahan. Nestled on the shores of massive Macquarie Harbour, Strahan is the gateway to the World Heritage listed Franklin- Gordon Wild Rivers National Park.

❱ Hotel stay: Strahan Village (1 night)

Day 3 – Strahan to Cradle Mountain, Gordon River Cruise (BLD)

Today’s highlight experience is a lunch cruise on the Gordon River. You’ll be awestruck by the beauty of the dark waters. Stained amber by buttongrass tannins, they reflect the untouched wilderness that surrounds them. Stop at Sarah Island for an insight into a relic of Tasmania’s lesser-known convict history, the Macquarie Harbour Penal Settlement. See Hells Gates, the treacherous entrance to the harbour, and Heritage Landing, site of a 2,000-year-old Huon Pine. Travel through the mining towns of Rosebery and Tullah on your way to your hotel.

❱ Hotel stay: Cradle Mountain Hotel (1 night)

Day 4 – Cradle Mountain to Smithton via Table Cape & Stanley (BD)

This morning, marvel at the inspiring beauty of Cradle Mountain National Park. Join your Travel Director for a guided walk by Dove Lake, where you may spot Bennetts wallabies, echidnas and pademelons along the way. Travel on through rolling green hills to Table Cape for spectacular views of Bass Strait. Picturesque Stanley is in your sights as you head west. Enjoy views of the sheer-sided Stanley bluff known as ‘The Nut’ and take some time to explore. Your destination is Smithton.

❱ Hotel stay: Tall Timbers (1 night)

Day 5 – Smithton to Launceston (B)

Travel through the picturesque coastal townships of Burnie, Penguin and Ulverstone before heading inland to Sheffield, home to over 60 murals depicting the area’s rich history. You’ll learn about dairy production methods and indulge in a cheese tasting at the award-winning Ashgrove Tasmanian Farm on your way to Launceston, Tasmania’s ‘northern capital’.

❱ Hotel stay: Best Western Plus Launceston (2 nights)

Day 6 – Launceston (B)

This morning, visit the unique natural formation of the Cataract Gorge, home to the longest single-span chairlift in the world, followed by an orientation tour of the city. The afternoon is yours to spend at leisure, exploring all that Launceston has to offer. You may wish to join an optional experience on a Cataract Gorge River Cruise.

Day 7 – Launceston to Bicheno (BD)

Bridestowe Lavender Estate, producer of high quality lavender since 1922, is your first stop. Later, visit the Legerwood Carved Memorial Trees site, then follow the picturesque east coast to Bicheno. This evening you might like to take an optional experience tour to see either Bicheno’s wild penguins as they emerge from the ocean (seasonal), or the iconic Tasmanian Devil.

❱ Hotel stay: Best Western Beachfront at Bicheno (1 night)

Day 8 – Bicheno to Hobart via Freycinet National Park (B)

Today, experience the grandeur of Freycinet National Park, taking a guided walk to the lookout at Cape Tourville that affords astonishing views across brilliant blue water, verdant forest and golden beaches. On your way to Hobart, you’ll travel through Swansea and Orford and make a lunch stop in historic Richmond. The village is famous for its elegant Georgian architecture, with beautiful heritage buildings dating to the 1820s now housing galleries, tea shops, craft boutiques and museums.

❱ Hotel stay: Wrest Point (3 nights)

Day 9 – Port Arthur Historic Site (BD)

Explore the Port Arthur Historic Site today, taking a cruise around the Isle of the Dead and a fascinating guided walk of the remains of Port Arthur’s infamous convict prison.

This evening, mingle with your Travel Director and fellow travellers at a Farewell Dinner in one of Hobart’s popular restaurants.

Day 10 – Bruny Island or MONA Museum (B)

Spend a day on beautiful Bruny Island! After a short ferry ride from Hobart, discover the island’s world class beaches, national parks, rugged coastline & native wildlife. Enjoy a walk along easy to moderate tracks, take in the scenic views & visit areas only locals know about.

Alternatively, you may wish to visit the famous MONA Museum & Moorilla Winery. Sip on 10 different vintages before spending an afternoon at the Museum of Old & New Art – an entertaining & thought provoking art museum.
