What to Expect
Immerse yourself deep in Tasmania's wild west coast wilderness across four amazing days.
Step back in time as you discover Tassie’s rich natural heritage; walk through untouched forests, explore wild rivers and rugged coastlines, see breathtaking mountainous vistas and breathe the freshest air in the world.
This is a rare opportunity to experience part of the world that still feels raw, rugged and utterly beautiful!
Day 1: Hobart to Strahan
From the tranquil Derwent Valley, you'll journey to Mt Field National Park, where you will walk among some of the world’s tallest flowering trees and visit the beautiful Russell Falls. Other highlights today include a stop at Lake St Clair, which is Australia’s deepest freshwater lake and traversing the pristine Franklin-Gordon Wild River National Park. Located deep within the massive Tasmanian World Heritage Area, this drive into the western wilds offers breathtaking views of rainforests and rugged mountain scenery. We stop briefly at Queenstown with its ‘moonscape’ and historic buildings, to get a taste of Tassie’s rich mining history before stopping in the picturesque harbourside village of Strahan for the night.
Day 2: West Coast
Tasmania’s west coast offers untouched wilderness. Today you will explore the Tarkine rainforest and Tasmania’s highest waterfall, Montezuma Falls, followed by the Henty Sand Dunes. Alternatively, choose the renowned Gordon River Cruise (own cost). Later, visit Ocean Beach and breathe the freshest air in the world. Back in Strahan, your guide knows the best spot to look for the elusive platypus at dusk or dawn.
Day 3: Strahan to Cradle Mountain to Launceston
This World Heritage Area is an alpine wilderness carved by ancient glaciers. It is a hiker’s paradise; you may wish to choose the challenging and scenic track to Marion’s Lookout, or an impressive but easier option is the magnificent Dove Lake Circuit. We’ll look for wombats at Ronny Creek, before departing Cradle Mountain to travel to Launceston via Sheffield (the Town of Murals).
Day 4: Launceston to Hobart
This morning enjoy time to visit the beautiful Cataract Gorge, Launceston’s own piece of wilderness within the city centre. Then it’s time to say goodbye to northern Tasmania and return through Tasmania’s rural midlands and onto Hobart.
