We will visit Pirate’s Bay Lookout, Tasman Arch, Waterfall Bay and Devil’s Kitchen to see these magnificent geological formations.


Night: Hobart


Today we will drive through the Western Wilds. We will walk among some of the tallest trees in the world and see the beautiful Russell Falls in Mt Field NP. We will visit the vast Lake St Clair, the deepest freshwater lake in Australia. The drive through Franklin-Gordon National Park offers pristine jungle and mountainous scenery. You will enjoy the quirky mining town of Queenstown before reaching the charming port town of Strahan.


Night: Straham


The unspoiled wilderness of Tasmania’s west coast is today’s playground. In the Tarkine Rainforest, we’ll trek to Tasmania’s tallest waterfall, Montezuma Falls, and then explore the gigantic Henty Sand Dunes. Alternatively, today you have the option to cruise down the scenic Gordon River (own expense). Later in Ocean Beac we will breathe the freshest air in the world. Back in Strahan, hopefully our guide can help you find the unique platypus.

Night: Straham


In Cradle Mountain National Park, an alpine and glacial World Heritage Site, choose a hike that suits your fitness level. The Dove Lake Circuit offers what some call the best short walk in Tassie, while the walk to Marion’s is more challenging. After searching for wombats in Ronny Creek (fingers crossed!), we’ll leave the highlands and stop at Town of Murals (Sheffield) before enjoying Launceston’s urban delights at your leisure.

Night: Launceston


Discover Launceston’s picturesque Cataract Gorge and look out for local kangaroos, then hit the road for some stunning East Coast scenery. Enjoy lunch in St Helens before walking the white sands of the magical Bay of Fires (and swimming, weather permitting!). We’ll take our time savoring the coastal views as we travel south to the quaint fishing village of Bicheno (our home tonight), where you can also join an optional guided tour of the Little Penguins (own expense) as you emerge from the sea.

Overnight: Bicheno


The Wineglass Bay Overlook offers exceptional views, so it’s worth getting up early and beating the crowds. We can then relax on the secluded beach or choose the more challenging climb of Mount Amos or a walk along the beach. Before heading to Hobart along the Great Eastern Drive, we’ll take in incredible ocean and mountain views of the Pink Granite Peaks of Hazards from Cape Tourville.
