WHAT TO EXPECT

This 2-day eco-certified tour takes in the highlights of Tasmania’s East Coast. Get ready to experience gleaming white-sand beaches, inviting turquoise waters and orange lichen-covered granite boulders. These two magical days take us to the premier locations of the Bay of Fires and Freycinet National Park where there are great hiking options to suit your fitness level, such as the Wineglass Bay Lookout, Mt Amos, secluded beaches, and Cape Tourville. You’ll love meeting the Tasmanian devil and other unique wildlife at a premium wildlife sanctuary. There’s also plenty of time to explore the tranquil seaside fishing village of Bicheno (our overnight stay)!

 

Intinerary:

Day 1: HOBART > BICHENO
Approaching the East Coast we’ll travel through historic sheep and wheat stations in the agricultural
midlands of Tasmania, steeped in convict and bushranger history. We’ll enjoy lunch at the fishing port of St Helens before reaching the stunning Bay of Fires, with its pristine white sands, crystal clear waters and burnt-orange boulders. This is an idyllic place to swim in good weather or simply kick off your shoes and wander along the white sands. Heading south along the Great Eastern Drive we’ll experience breathtaking coastal scenery. We’ll visit a terrific wildlife sanctuary to get up close to the Tasmanian devil as well as other local wildlife. Our overnight stay is within the picturesque coastal fishing village of Bicheno. Here you can explore at your leisure the sensational coastal views, sample the local fish and chips, or try your luck at spotting whales from the shore (in season). If wildlife is your passion, you may wish to view little penguins arriving to shore from the sea as part of the guided little penguin tour (own cost).

Overnight: Bicheno

 

Day 2: FREYCINET NATIONAL PARK > HOBART
Here it is, the world-renowned Freycinet National Park. We beat the crowds by arriving early to explore this paradise. Walk to the Lookout for panoramic views over Wineglass Bay. Then, you can choose to relax at Wineglass Bay beach, or if you are looking for something more adventurous, choose the challenging climb of Mt Amos or take a beach walk. We will also enjoy stunning views from Cape Tourville out to the Tasman Sea and back towards the pink granite peaks of the Hazards Mountains. Freycinet has more than stunning scenery to offer, and our guide will enlighten you throughout the day as to why this particular region is so special. Departing Freycinet, the road trip continues as we pass vineyards, farmlands, and stunning coastal scenery, arriving in Hobart later that afternoon.
