Departing from Hobart, we’ll travel through the picturesque Coal River Valley, a region famous for its picturesque vineyards, farmland, and the settlement of Richmond. This picturesque township is known as the best preserved colonial town in Australia. Formally established in the 1820s, here you can see Australia’s oldest Catholic church, walk across the convict-made Richmond Bridge, and enjoy the tree-lined streets with its heritage-listed buildings. Then towards the Tasman Peninsula.

At Pirate’s Bay we’ll enjoy panoramic views of the sheer cliffs and coastline from Eaglehawk Neck to Cape Huay. Continuing onto the Peninsula we will visit some of the magnificent features of the Tasman National Park. First, we’ll take a leisurely walk along the cliff to Waterfall Bay, taking in the vast views of the ocean along the cliff line to see several waterfalls tumbling into the sea. We’ll also stop at the remarkable geological wonders of Tasmania Arch and Devil’s Kitchen. This truly spectacular coastline is created by the mighty seas of the Southern Ocean colliding with towering coastal cliffs, creating caves and rocky arches with their cliff edges cloaked in native forest.

Upon arrival at the historic site of Port Arthur, explore the ruins and beautiful gardens of this UNESCO World Heritage-listed open-air museum at your own pace. You’ll also join a guided tour and harbor cruise (included) and discover the fascinating history of this convict settlement with its chilling realities for prisoners amid preserved jail ruins.

Leaving Port Arthur, we return to Hobart with a deep appreciation for the wild landscape and a fascinating insight into 19th and 20th century colonial life, having experienced a very special and unique part of Tasmania.
