Discover Tasmania - Tour

On any given drive throughout Australia’s rugged outback, the land slowly shifts from flourishing forests to rugged mountains as you amble down the long stretches of tarmac. From the panoramic vistas atop Mount Wellington to the shimmering coast of Wineglass Bay, the rustic buildings of Hobart to the riversides of Launceston, Tasmania is Australia’s best-kept secret – a mystical island lying at the end of the world.

Day 2: The Tasman Peninsula


  • Journey south to the Tasman Peninsula and begin a wilderness cruise along the spectacular coastline, sailing underneath one of the highest vertical sea cliffs in the southern hemisphere in the process. The area plays home to a variety of spectacular native sea life – seals, migrating whales and seabirds are often spotted in the area, so keep a camera handy for a chance to snap some of these charming critters.

Day 3: Mount Wellington, Monda and the Central Plateau

  • Included Activities: Mount Wellington and MONA Museum
  • Meals Included: Breakfast, Dinner


Day 4: Meander valley and Cradle Mountain


  • Take a plunge through the Greater Western Tiers, heading down into the Meander Valley. The local apiaries are responsible for churning out delicious clover honey with light citrus and vanilla flavours – take a sample of this sweet local treat before heading to a wildlife sanctuary for a chance to visit the local Tasmanian Devils. Continue hiking onwards to Tulampanga (Alum Cliffs), a place considered spiritually important for the local indigenous tribes due to the ochre found in the surrounding ranges. 
  • Included Activities: Tasmanian Devil Wildlife Sanctuary
  • Meals Included: Breakfast, Dinner


Day 5: Cradle Mountain


  • The day is yours to explore this magnificent wilderness along a number of different walking tracks. For those who prefer to travel at a leisurely pace, consider taking a trip to Waldheim Chalet or wandering along the Dove Lake circuit. For those with a little more grit, or people who simply love views of gorgeous lakes with rugged mountain backdrops, the hike to Marion’s Lookout is perfect.
  • Included Activities: Cradle Mountain
  • Meals Included: Breakfast


Day 6: Launceston and Bicheno


  • After departing the hotel, head down the mountain for a visit to Ashgrove Farm to witness the production of some of Tasmania’s most famous cheese. Take a nibble of this dairy-based delight before experiencing the rugged, awning beauty of Cataract Gorge. Next stop, Launceston: Australia’s third oldest city.
  • Meals Included: Breakfast, Dinner


Day 7: Freycinet National Park; Wineglass Bay and Cape Tourville


  • Freycinet National Park contains a counterpointed mix of harsh, granite mountains and inviting beachscapes – spend a day beholding the dramatic peaks of the Hazards, attempt to spot soaring white-bellied sea-eagles or consider travelling on optional walks to Wineglass Bay, Cape Tourville or the park’s nearby lookout. 
  • Included Activities: Freycinet National Park and Wineglass Bay

Day 8: Maria Island


  • Leaving Freycinet, travel further south along the coast. Pass through Swansea, then stop at Triabunna before jumping on a ferry for ride to breathtaking Maria Island – a place riddled with Aboriginal and European history. Make sure you pack your camera for this one – the Painted Cliffs, Fossil Cliffs and peeping local wildlife are well worth catching on film. Soak in some of the stunning island scenery as you walk along one of the island trails. 
  • Afterwards, head back to the mainland for a visit to Richmond, a town full of quaint 19th-century architecture.
