From the tranquil Derwent Valley we will travel to Mt Field National Park where we will walk among some of the tallest flowering trees in the world 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 vast Tasmanian World Heritage Area, this journey into the Western Wilds offers breathtaking views of tropical rainforests and rugged mountain scenery. We stop briefly in Queenstown with its ‘moonscape’ and historic buildings, to learn about Tassie’s rich mining history. Our home for two nights is the harborside town of Strahan. This beautiful and historic town is one of the most picturesque places to stay in all of Tasmania.


Night: Straham


The west coast of Tasmania offers unspoiled wilderness. We will explore the Tarkine Rainforest and the highest waterfall in Tasmania, Montezuma Falls, followed by the Henty Sand Dunes. Alternatively, choose the famous Gordon River Cruise (own expense). Later, we will visit Ocean Beach and breathe in the freshest air in the world. Back in Strahan, our guide knows the best place to look for platypus at sunset or sunrise.


Night: Straham


This World Heritage Area is an alpine wilderness carved out by ancient glaciers. It is a paradise for hikers; you may want to choose the challenging and scenic track to Marion’s, or a stunning but easier option is the magnificent Dove Lake Circuit. We will search for wombats in Ronny Creek, before leaving Cradle Mountain to travel to Launceston via Sheffield (the city of murals).


This morning we visit the beautiful Cataract Gorge, Launceston’s own piece of wilderness within the city.
