DAILY OVERVIEW

Day 1: PORT ARTHUR HISTORIC SITE
We begin our journey with a visit to Australia’s best-preserved colonial village, Richmond before we
head south to explore Tasmania’s ruthless convict past at the World Heritage listed Port Arthur
Historic Site (guided walk and short harbour cruise included). Rich in visual history, learn of the
chilling life as a convict in the restored sandstone prison buildings and preserved ruins.
Overnight: Hobart

Day 2: HOBART > STRAHAN
We leave Hobart and drive through the Derwent Valley – travelling east to west across the island.
You’ll see the beautiful Russell Falls, walk among the Mt Field National Park Tall Trees, and visit
Australia’s deepest freshwater lake, Lake St Clair. Explore the pristine Franklin-Gordon Wild River
National Park and end the day in Strahan.
Overnight: Strahan

Day 3: WILD WEST COAST
In the untouched wilderness of Tasmania’s West Coast we will explore the shifting sands of Henty
Dunes. Then we continue into the Tarkine Rainforest and walk to Tasmania’s highest waterfall –
Montezuma Falls. Or you can choose to join the world-famous Gordon River Cruise (optional, at your
own expense).
Overnight: Strahan

Day 4: CRADLE MOUNTAIN > LAUNCESTON
Around 950m above sea level is the World Heritage listed Cradle Mountain-Lake St Clair National
Park, where you can choose a walk to suit you. With an extensive range of tracks, stroll around Dove
Lake or challenge yourself with a hike to Marion’s Lookout. A short drive takes us through Sheffield,
the ‘town of murals’ and then to Launceston.
Overnight: Launceston

Day 5: LAUNCESTON > BICHENO
We make our way to the East Coast and the beautiful Bay of Fires. If the conditions are right, this is
the perfect place for a swim. Tasmania’s most scenic coastal drive takes you from St Helens to
Bicheno where we meet the iconic Tasmanian devil as we stop at a wildlife sanctuary. This evening
you may choose to join a viewing experience of the Little Penguins (optional at your own expense
and seasonal).
Overnight: Bicheno

Day 6: FREYCINET NATIONAL PARK > HOBART
An early start means we are the first to the Wineglass Bay lookout, beating the crowds and the heat
for that postcard photo. Relax on the secluded beach or choose the more challenging Mt Amos or
a beach walk. We continue our journey south passing the coastal villages of Swansea and Orford
before arriving back to Hobart.
