The famous wild places, wildlife and wild fun! It’s easy to see why this is our most popular tour… you will escape into Tasmania’s pristine wilderness as we travel coast to coast and experience the best of the island. The tour starts by heading to the wild and rugged West Coast for waterfalls, rainforests and wildlife. Then, experience the startling change of scenery as the tour goes on through the alpine wilderness of Cradle Mountain to the white sands of the Bay of Fires and Wineglass Bay.

Highlights:

  • Russell Falls, Mt Field National Park, Lake St Clair
  • Henty Dunes, Tarkine Rainforest, Strahan
  • Cradle Mountain, Launceston, Cataract Gorge
  • Bay of Fires, St Helens, Tasmanian devils, Bicheno
  • Freycinet National Park, Wineglass Bay, Cape Tourville
  • Advanced Eco-Certified Tour

Day 1: HOBART → STRAHAN

We begin our journey into the Western Wilds at the stunning Mt Field NP, with its wondrous Russell Falls and some of the world’s tallest trees. Located within the World Heritage Area, we’ll experience Lake St Clair, rainforests, and magnificent views along the way as we traverse the Franklin-Gordon NP. We stop briefly at the quirky and fascinating mining area of Queenstown which provides a taste of Tassie’s pioneer history, before settling in the scenic harbourside village of Strahan. Nestled on Macquarie Harbour, this beautiful town has a wicked history, and here our guides know the best places to look for the elusive platypus!

Overnight: Strahan

Day 2: WILD WEST COAST

We’ll take you into the Tarkine Rainforest to hike to Tassie’s highest waterfall, Montezuma Falls, then explore Henty Sand Dunes. Or, today you can choose to take the optional Gordon River Cruise (own cost). Later, we’ll check out the wild and rugged Ocean Beach and breathe the freshest air in the world, before returning for our final night in historic Strahan.

Overnight: Strahan

Day 3: CRADLE MOUNTAIN → LAUNCESTON

Here it is! Tasmania’s big ticket item and every hiker’s dream: Cradle Mountain NP. Will you take on the climb to Marion’s Lookout or opt to meander around the glacial carved Dove Lake? With luck today, we may see a wombat or two at Ronny Creek. We’ll then check out Sheffield, the Town of Murals, before reaching one of Australia’s oldest cities, Launceston.

Day 4: LAUNCESTON → BICHENO

Explore Launceston’s beautiful Cataract Gorge before taking a scenic drive to the East Coast and exploring Tasmania’s best beaches, including the turquoise waters of the Bay of Fires. Later today you will see the iconic Tasmanian devil in a fantastic wildlife sanctuary in Bicheno, and this evening you may wish to take the optional guided little penguin tour at Bicheno (own cost).

Overnight: Bicheno

Day 5: FREYCINET NATIONAL PARK → HOBART

An early start means we are the first to the Wineglass Bay Lookout, beating the crowds and the heat. Relax on the secluded beach or choose the more challenging Mt Amos climb or a beach walk. We’ll take in phenomenal views from the lighthouse at Cape Tourville before following the Great Eastern Drive to Hobart.
