Lunch will take place at Australia’s deepest lake, Lake St Clair, where you might be able to catch a glimpse of an elusive platypus if you’re lucky. From there, we’ll take you up Donaghy’s Hill to witness the jaw-dropping views over Frenchman’s Cap and the Franklin River.
On the second day, we’ll kick things off with a wander through beautiful rainforest scenery alongside an old, disused railway line. We’ll head to Tasmania’s highest waterfall, Montezuma Falls, before having lunch in the fishing town of Strahan. While there, you can discover more about the fascinating history of the British Empire in this part of the world. After you’ve refuelled, we’ll make a pitstop at the Henty Dunes, where you can marvel at stunning views of the Southern Ocean.
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 before we stop for lunch in Sheffield, one of the most creative and arty spots in Tasmania.
On the way to Launceston (our final destination), we’ll stop off for some traditional Tasmanian tasty treats and enjoy the landscape of Cataract Gorge that sits in the heart of the city.
