We stop briefly at the quirky and fascinating mining area of Queenstown, offering a taste of Tasmania’s pioneering history.

before settling in the picturesque harbor town of Strahan. Located in Macquarie Harbour, this beautiful town has a wicked history, and here our guides know the best places to look for the elusive platypus!


Night: Straham


We’ll take you to the Tarkine Rainforest to hike to Tasmania’s tallest waterfall, Montezuma Falls, then explore the Henty Sand Dunes. Or today you can choose to take the optional Gordon River Cruise (own expense). Later we visit the wild and rugged Ocean Beach and breathe in the freshest air in the world, before returning for our final night in historic Strahan.


Night: Straham


Here it is! Tasmania’s big ticket and every hiker’s dream: Cradle Mountain NP. Will you head up to the Marion lookout or opt to wander around glacier-carved Dove Lake? Hopefully today, we may see a wombat or two at Ronny Creek. We will then visit Sheffield, the city of murals, before arriving in one of Australia’s oldest cities, Launceston.


Night: Launceston


Explore Launceston’s beautiful Cataract Gorge before taking a scenic drive to the east coast and exploring Tasmania’s best beaches, including the turquoise waters of the Bay of Fires. Here we take our time to enjoy the stunning coastal scenery before heading down to the tranquil township of Bicheno, where tonight you may wish to take the optional Little Penguin Guided Tour (own expense).


Overnight: Bicheno


An early start means we’re the first to Wineglass Bay, beating the crowds and the heat. Relax on the secluded beach or choose the more challenging climb of Mount Amos or a walk along the beach. We’ll enjoy phenomenal views from the Cape Tourville Lighthouse before following the Great Eastern Drive to Hobart.
