    Day 1

    Hobart

    Your Tasmanian holiday begins with an afternoon tour of Hobart. You’ll see historic Battery Point, Salamanca Place, the Botanic Gardens, Constitution Dock, the destination of yachts participating in the Sydney to Hobart race each year, and Mt. Nelson, which affords panoramic views over Australia’s southernmost city. Enjoy the company of your Travel Director and fellow travellers this evening at a Welcome Reception and dinner.

    Stay: 1 night Wrest Point

    Day 2

    Hobart - Strahan

    This morning, you’ll head west to New Norfolk and magnificent Mt. Field National Park. Here, you’ll take a walk through lush rainforest to the many-tiered cascade of picturesque Russell Falls. Then enjoy the scenic drive to iconic Lake St. Clair, the deepest freshwater lake in Australia, and continue through the rainforest to the coastal town of Strahan. Nestled on the shores of massive Macquarie Harbour, Strahan is the gateway to the World Heritage listed Franklin- Gordon Wild Rivers National Park.

    Stay: 1 night Strahan Village

    Day 3

    Strahan - Cradle Mountain

    Today’s highlight experience is a lunch cruise on the Gordon River. You’ll be awestruck by the beauty of the dark waters. Stained amber by buttongrass tannins, they reflect the untouched wilderness that surrounds them. Stop at Sarah Island for an insight into a relic of Tasmania’s lesser-known convict history, the Macquarie Harbour Penal Settlement. See Hells Gates, the treacherous entrance to the harbour, and Heritage Landing, site of a 2,000-year-old Huon Pine. Travel through the mining towns of Rosebery and Tullah on your way to your hotel.

    Stay: 1 night Cradle Mountain Hotel

    Day 4

    Cradle Mountain - Smithton

    This morning, marvel at the inspiring beauty of Cradle Mountain National Park. Join your Travel Director for a guided walk by Dove Lake, where you may spot Bennetts wallabies, echidnas and pademelons along the way. Travel on through rolling green hills to Table Cape for spectacular views of Bass Strait. Picturesque Stanley is in your sights as you head west. Enjoy views of the sheer-sided Stanley bluff known as ‘The Nut’ and take some time to explore. Your destination is Smithton.

    Stay: 1 night Tall Timbers

    Day 5

    Smithton - Launceston

    Travel through the picturesque coastal townships of Burnie, Penguin and Ulverstone before heading inland to Sheffield, home to over 60 murals depicting the area’s rich history. You’ll learn about dairy production methods and indulge in a cheese tasting at the award-winning Ashgrove Tasmanian Farm on your way to Launceston, Tasmania’s ‘northern capital’.

    Stay: 2 nights Best Western Plus Launceston

    Day 6

    Launceston

    This morning, visit the unique natural formation of the Cataract Gorge, home to the longest single-span chairlift in the world, followed by an orientation tour of the city. The afternoon is yours to spend at leisure, exploring all that Launceston has to offer. Consider an optional experience on a Cataract Gorge River Cruise.

    Day 7

    Launceston - Bicheno

    Bridestowe Lavender Estate, producer of high quality lavender since 1922, is your first stop. Later, visit the Legerwood Carved Memorial Trees site, then follow the picturesque east coast to Bicheno. This evening you might like to take an optional experience tour to see either Bicheno’s wild penguins as they emerge from the ocean (seasonal), or the iconic Tasmanian Devil.

    Stay: 1 night Beachfront at Bicheno

    Day 8

    Bicheno - Hobart

    Today, experience the grandeur of Freycinet National Park, taking a guided walk to the lookout at Cape Tourville that affords astonishing views across brilliant blue water, verdant forest and golden beaches. On your way to Hobart, you’ll travel through Swansea and Orford and make a lunch stop in historic Richmond. The village is famous for its elegant Georgian architecture, with beautiful heritage buildings dating to the 1820s now housing galleries, tea shops, craft boutiques and museums.

    Stay: 2 nights Wrest Point

    Day 9

    Port Arthur
