Highlights

 

Appreciate the magnificent beauty and history of Australia’s Apple Isle on this 10 day Tasmanian Wonders tour.

Tasmania may be a small state, but it packs an incredible amount of natural beauty, gourmet experiences and memorable experiences. Head to Hobart first and see the city with an afternoon tour that takes in Battery Point, Salamanca Place and Constitution Dock, among others. Go west towards New Norfolk, Mt. Field National Park and Russell Falls. See the deepest freshwater lake in Australia, the famous Lake St. Clair, before arriving in Strahan, a quaint harbour town that doubles as gateway to Franklin-Gordon Wild Rivers National Park. Some of the memorable experiences to expect while in the area include a lunch cruise on the Gordon River, a visit to Sarah Island to learn about local convict history, and the chance to see Hells Gate.

Venture into Cradle Mountain National Park to take in the landscape of Tasmania’s most famous peak. Join a guided walk by Dove Lake and travel northwards to Table Cape and the township of Stanley where you can marvel at the sweeping views of Bass Strait offered from atop local landmark, The Nut. Explore the Tarkine Wilderness region, stop at an award-winning dairy for tastings, and see both the Tamar Valley and Cataract Gorge from your base in Launceston. Set your sights on Tasmania’s East Coast and the charming town of Bicheno, one of the most popular destinations along this stunning scenic shoreline. It is then back to Hobart, but not before you experience the mind-boggling beauty of world-famous Freycinet National Park and drive through the townships of Swansea and Orford. Cap off your Tasmanian tour with a day trip to Port Arthur Historic Site to take a leisurely cruise about the Isle of the Dead, learn about the area’s convict past with a local guide, and see the rock formations of Tasman Arch, Devil’s Kitchen and the Blowhole on the return to Hobart.
