Exploring Tasmania’s Wilderness and Wildlife

Itinerary

Day 1: HOBART > STRAHAN

Today we will drive through the Western Wilds. We’ll walk among some of the world’s tallest trees and see the beautiful Russell Falls at Mount Field National Park. We’ll visit the expansive Lake St Clair, Australia’s deepest freshwater lake. The drive through the Franklin-Gordon National Park offers pristine rainforest and mountain scenery. You’ll enjoy the rugged scenery around the old mining town of Queenstown before arriving in the charming harbourside village of Strahan.

Overnight: Strahan

 

Day 2 : WILD WEST COAST

The untouched wilderness of Tasmania’s West Coast is today’s playground. In the Tarkine rainforest we’ll walk to Tasmania’s highest waterfall, Montezuma Falls, then explore the gigantic Henty Sand Dunes. Alternatively, today you have the option of cruising the scenic Gordon River (own cost). Later at Ocean Beach we’ll breathe the world’s freshest air. Back in Strahan, with luck our guide can help you find the unique platypus.

Overnight: Strahan

Day 3 :CRADLE MOUNTAIN > LAUNCESTON

At the alpine and glacial carved World Heritage-listed Cradle Mountain National Park, choose a walk to suit your fitness. The Dove Lake circuit is one of the best short walks in Australia, while the walk to Marion’s Lookout is more challenging but offers incredible alpine views. After looking for wombats at Ronny Creek, we’ll leave the highlands, stopping at the Town of Murals (Sheffield) before enjoying the historic city of Launceston at your leisure.

Overnight: Launceston

 

Day 4 :LAUNCESTON > BICHENO

Discover Launceston’s picturesque Cataract Gorge and look for local wallabies, then we’ll hit the road for some breathtaking East Coast scenery. Enjoy lunch in St Helens before walking along the white sands of the magical Bay of Fires. We’ll take our time to savour the coastal views as we travel south to the picturesque fishing village of Bicheno where little penguins can be seen emerging from the sea.

Overnight: Bicheno

Day 5 : FREYCINET NATIONAL PARK > HOBART

Freycinet is Tasmania’s most famous coastal National Park, and today you’ll explore its beaches, forests, coves, and lookouts. See the pink granite Hazards mountain range from tranquil Honeymoon Bay. Then, you may be keen for a challenging climb to the summit of Mt Amos. Alternatively, you may prefer to walk to the lookout to view the curved white sands of Wineglass Bay and continue to the beach below.  Finally, we’ll take in the stunning ocean and mountain views from Cape Tourville before returning to Hobart via the Great Eastern Drive.

Overnight: Hobart

Day 6 : TASMANIAN DEVILS, RICHMOND & WELLINGTON PARK

Bonorong is Tasmania’s best-known conservation and wildlife sanctuary. Here we’ll meet a variety of Tasmanian wildlife such as quolls, birds, wombats, kangaroos, and Tasmanian devils. Then, we’ll enjoy walking around the colonial village of Richmond. We return to Hobart via the scenic Coal River Valley, and make our way to Wellington Park, known locally as “The Mountain” or by its palawa name, kunanyi.  Here our guide will provide an experience which explores its diverse features such as fern glades, eucalyptus forests, dramatic rock columns and boulder fields. There are superb walking tracks to spectacular lookouts. This is our final experience together as our tour comes to an end.
