WHAT TO EXPECT

Join our eco-certified tour to experience Tassie’s picturesque beaches, stunning scenery, and magical locations, such as the Bay of Fires, Freycinet National Park and Wineglass Bay. We will also visit a wildlife sanctuary to see Tasmanian devils in action and stay overnight in one of Tassie’s best seaside towns, Bicheno. We visit Bruny Island (Tassie’s own island paradise), where we’ll taste some local gourmet delicacies and experience a diversity of scenic and natural highlights including South Bruny National Park, Adventure Bay and The Neck. On our final day we’ll discover the dramatic coastal scenery of the Tasman Peninsula and explore the world’s best-preserved convict ruins at the Port Arthur Historic Site.

Itinerary:

Day 1: LAUNCESTON > BICHENO
We make our way along the Great Eastern Drive to the stunningly beautiful Bay of Fires, with its turquoise waters, white sands, and orange lichen cloaked boulders. Weather permitting you can swim or simply stroll barefoot along the pristine sand. Further south we’ll visit a wildlife sanctuary where you’ll love seeing Tasmanian devils, as well as having close encounters with other unique wildlife. Explore the coastal fishing town of Bicheno, our home for tonight, and after dark you may want to join an evening viewing of the little penguins as they return from the sea to the shore (own cost).

Overnight: Bicheno

 

Day 2: FREYCINET NATIONAL PARK > HOBART
The scenery, colours and landscapes of Freycinet National Park are captivating. We arrive in the Park early, beating the crowds to the Lookout of Wineglass Bay. Choose a walk to your liking; the summit of Mt Amos offers a challenging hike, or you may wish to descend to Wineglass Beach or simply relax on a secluded beach. Later, we take the board walk to Cape Tourville which is one of Tassie’s ‘Great Short Walks’ due to its tremendous panoramic views of the Freycinet Peninsula including Wineglass Bay and the pink granite peaks of the Hazards mountains. We travel to Hobart after an incredible day exploring nature at its very best.

Overnight: Hobart

 

Day 3: BRUNY ISLAND
With breathtaking beaches, unique wildlife, dramatic scenery and mouth-watering local cheese, honey, and oysters, it’s clear why Bruny Island is possibly the best daytrip experience from Hobart. Highlights today include South Bruny National Park with its amazing views, Truganini Lookout at The Neck, as well as exploring the pristine beach of Adventure Bay (with luck we will see unique white wallabies). This day is diverse, made even more special by our guide’s insights and storytelling, providing an authentic experience of what is a favourite destination for locals and visitors to Tasmania.

Overnight: Hobart

 

Day 4: PORT ARTHUR HISTORIC SITE
We’ll visit the charming, colonial village of Richmond, then head south to explore the Tasman Peninsula. At Pirates Bay Lookout we’ll get our first glimpse of the Peninsula with Cape Huay in the distance which has some of the highest sea cliffs in the Southern Hemisphere. In Port Arthur, we’ll discover Tasmania’s convict past at the World Heritage Listed Historic Site (guided walk and harbour cruise included). Explore some of the world’s best-preserved convict ruins as well as it’s beautiful gardens within this open-air museum. Before returning to Hobart we’ll visit Tasman National Park to take in the dramatic coastal scenery and geological formations, including Tasman Arch, Devil’s Kitchen and the Blowhole.
