Embark on a 7-day journey to explore the hidden gems of Tasmania on this 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 an abundance of unique Australian wildlife.
Let’s start our tour in Hobart from where we head to the Western Wilds of Tassie. Here we’ll explore Russell Falls in the Mount Field National Park, spotting impossibly tall trees and native wildlife on our way. The next stop is the famous Lake St Clair, Australia’s deepest freshwater lake! Another impressive stop is Franklin-Gordon National Park with some unforgettable nature and the former mining town of Queenstown. Tonight, we will sleep in Strahan before exploring the wild west coast the next day.
Hiking to Montezuma Falls – Tassie’s highest waterfall, sand rolling in the Henty Sand Dunes and walking through the rainforest of Tarkine. Those are just a few of the things on our planning for day 2! Instead of going to the sand dunes, you can enjoy a river cruise over Gordon River (own expense). After all these amazing stops we head to Ocean Beach for some wind in our hair. Relax and sit back on the very white sand or take a dip in the turquoise water. This day we will stay in Strahan one more time.
A hiker’s favourite: Cradle Mountain National Park! And we’ll spend quite some time here today. Hike towards Marion’s Lookout (for a more active hike) or Dove Lake that’s glacial-carved (perfect if you want to take a bit easier). Spot a wombat at Ronny Creek before we drive back to Launceston where you can have a tasty dinner and a good night’s sleep. But first, we stop in Sheffield to discover its impressive murals.
Our fourth day consists of visiting Cataract Gorge in Launceston and the Bay of Fires along the picturesque East Coast of Tassie. When we arrive at the bay, you’ll be greeted by white sand and clear waters, and have the chance to take a swim (if the weather is ok). In the evening, you can watch the little penguins come ashore in Bicheno (own expense) before bedding down for the night.
On the fifth day, we make our way to the glistening waters of Wineglass Bay in the Freycinet National Park. If you’re up for it, you can hike to Mount Amos where you’ll be able to admire some amazing views! You can also do a beach walk and take it easy. Before we leave Freycinet National Park, we’ll also make a stop at Cape Tourville for views over the pink granite Hazards Mountains. Then we go back to Hobart via the picturesque Great Eastern Drive.
Today, we are in for a day of exploring flora and fauna. We start off the morning at Tasmania’s best-known conservation and wildlife sanctuary, Bonorong, where you’ll get the chance to acquaint yourself with the diverse Tasmanian wildlife. Say hello to quolls, birds, wombats, kangaroos, and Tasmanian devils, before we explore the heritage village of Richmond. We then continue to the city’s immense nature playground, Mount Wellington/kunanyi. This area is known for its incredibly diverse walking tracks and spectacular lookouts, and we will show you some of our favourite spots throughout Wellington Park. After this adventurous day, we drive back to Hobart for our last evening, where you can unwind in one of the city’s historic pubs or restaurants.
Even our final day is packed with impressive stops, from the colonial Village of Richmond to the stunning Tasman Peninsula. Check out Devil’s Kitchen, Waterfall Bay, and Pirates Bay Lookout. We then take a hike to Crescent Bay from Remarkable Cave. If you don’t feel like hiking, you can choose to visit Port Arthur instead, a World Heritage Listed Historic Site (own expense). This place is the best-preserved convict settlement of Australia. And from here we take you back to Hobart where we will finish our fun 7-day tour.
Meals and food are not provided, however, you will get the chance to purchase food from restaurants, cafes and supermarkets. The accommodation we stay in will have kitchen facilities for preparing your own food, or you can eat out if you prefer.
