Discover the breath-taking beauty of Tasmania’s wild west coast on this three-day adventure. We’ve packed the itinerary full of incredible sights and natural wonders, so you can explore the likes of Cradle Mountain, Montezuma Falls, and Lake St Clair, the deepest lake in Australia.
Minimum age 8 years old.
This tour requires a moderate level of fitness.
Let’s kick off our trip in a way that you’ll never forget our beautiful Tassie! We start the tour by travelling through the beautiful wilderness of the World Heritage listed Mount Field National Park. On the way, you’ll get to discover the picturesque waters of Russell Falls and wander between some of the tallest trees on the planet. Keep your eyes peeled for Tasmanian Pademelons as you go.
The next stop this day is Lake St Clair, Australia’s deepest lake, where you might be able to catch a glimpse of an elusive platypus, if you’re lucky. From there, we’ll take you up Franklin-Gordon Wild River National Park with magnific rainforests and mountains. And before we go to Strahan, where we will sleep for the next two nights, we make a stop at Queenstown. Here you can learn more about Tassie’s mining history.
On the second day, we’ll explore the wild wild West Coast of Tasmania. We’ll head to Tarkine rainforest and Tasmania’s highest waterfall, Montezuma Falls. After you’ve refuelled, we’ll make a pitstop at the Henty Dunes, where you can marvel at stunning views of the Southern Ocean. Instead of a visit to the dunes you can discover the Gordon River by joining the cruise (own expense). Next is Ocean Beach where you can take in some of the freshest air in the world! And eventually we will go back to Strahan for another nice night of sleep.
On the final day, we’ll head to the jutting heights of Cradle Mountain! Here, you’ll have the chance to take a hike or explore in your own time. Walk to Dove Lake Circuit or for a more adventurous activity hike to Marion’s Lookout. On our way back to Launceston (our final destination) we stop in Sheffield, one of the most creative and arty spots in Tasmania. We’ll then finish our tour in Launceston for some traditional Tasmanian tasty treats and enjoy the landscape of Cataract Gorge that sits in the heart of the city.
