Embark on a 7-day journey to explore the hidden gems of Tasmania on our 7 Day Best of Tasmania Tour. Explore Tasmania’s iconic landmarks including Cradle Mountain, Russell Falls, Bays of Fires, Wine Glass Bay – just to name a few for you! Our 7-day tour will take you to see breathtaking sceneries and surround you with abundance of unique Australian wildlife – not to mention an awesome experience to taste some of the local’s award-winning cheese in Brundy Island!
We start the tour by visiting the historic village of Richmond, which boasts some of Australia’s most iconic colonial architecture. From there, we’ll drive along the impressive Tasman Peninsula, taking in imposing cliffs and stunning views, and walking through the Tasman National Park to Waterfall Bay.
In the afternoon, we’ll take a guided tour of the World Heritage listed Port Arthur historic site before doing some chocolate tasting to end the day.
Today we’ll venture to Russell Falls in the Mount Field National Park, spotting impossibly tall trees and native wildlife on our way. Lunch is at Lake St Clair (keep your eyes peeled for the elusive platypus) before we admire the views from Donaghy’s Hill and the peak of Frenchmans Cap.
We’ll stroll to Montezuma Falls today, which is Tasmania’s highest waterfall. After walking through lush foliage alongside a disused railway line, we’ll stop for lunch in the fishing town of Strahan. When we’ve refuelled, we’ll climb to the top of the Henty Dunes to look out over the Southern Ocean.
Today it’s on to Cradle Mountain, where we’ll take a walk and soak up the jaw-dropping scenery. Then we’ll head to Sheffield to revel in some of Tasmania’s finest foods. As night falls, we’ll arrive in the garden city of Launceston, where you can see Cataract Gorge.
On our way to the Bay of Fires, we’ll stop off at the memorial carvings at Legerwood to do some seriously good cheese tasting. When we arrive at the bay, you’ll be greeted by white sand and clear waters, and you’ll have the chance to take a swim or try some local oysters. At dusk, you can watch the little penguins come ashore in Bicheno before bedding down for the night.
On the sixth day, we make our way to the glistening waters of Wineglass Bay in the Freycinet National Park. You’ll be able to admire the views from Mount Amos and see the rescued animals at East Coast Natureworld. On the way back to Hobart, we’ll stop off at Kate’s Berry Farm in Swansea.
Optional activity: Visit and meet the rescued animals at the Eastcoast NatureWorld: $20 per person.
On the final day, we head to Bruny Island, where you can go on a private cheese tasting adventure before walking the steps up to the Truganini Lookout. Keep an eye out for the island’s famous white wallabies on a cruise or walk of the island, after which we’ll make our way back to Hobart where the tour comes to an end.
