Take in Tasmania’s hot-spots on a budget as we journey along Tasmania’s spectacular East Coast before visits to the delightful Bruny Island and Port Arthur Historic Site.

Day 1: HOBART OR LAUNCESTON → BICHENO

We make our way along the Great Eastern Drive to the stunningly beautiful Bay of Fires, with its turquoise waters, white sands, and orange lichen cloaked boulders. Weather permitting you can swim or simply stroll barefoot along the pristine sand. Further south we’ll visit a wildlife sanctuary where you’ll love seeing Tasmanian devils, as well as having close encounters with other unique wildlife. Explore the coastal fishing town of Bicheno, our home for tonight, and after dark you may want to join an evening viewing of the little penguins as they return from the sea to the shore (own cost).Approaching the East Coast we’ll travel through historic sheep and wheat stations in the agricultural midlands of Tasmania, steeped in convict and bushranger history. We’ll enjoy lunch at the fishing port of St Helens before reaching the stunning Bay of Fires, with its pristine white sands, crystal clear waters and burnt-orange boulders. This is an idyllic place to swim in good weather or simply kick off your shoes and wander along the white sands. Heading south along the Great Eastern Drive we’ll experience breathtaking coastal scenery. We’ll visit a terrific wildlife sanctuary to get up close to the Tasmanian devil as well as other local wildlife. Our overnight stay is within the picturesque coastal fishing village of Bicheno. Here you can explore at your leisure the sensational coastal views, sample the local fish and chips, or try your luck at spotting whales from the shore (in season). If wildlife is your passion, you may wish to view little penguins arriving to shore from the sea as part of the guided little penguin tour (own cost).

Overnight: Bicheno

Day 2: FREYCINET NATIONAL PARK → HOBART

The scenery, colours and landscapes of Freycinet National Park are captivating. We arrive in the Park early, beating the crowds to the Lookout of Wineglass Bay. Choose a walk to your liking; the summit of Mt Amos offers a challenging hike, or you may wish to descend to Wineglass Beach or simply relax on a secluded beach. Later, we take the board walk to Cape Tourville which is one of Tassie’s ‘Great Short Walks’ due to its tremendous panoramic views of the Freycinet Peninsula including Wineglass Bay and the pink granite peaks of the Hazards mountains. We travel to Hobart after an incredible day exploring nature at its very best.Here it is, the world-renowned Freycinet National Park. We beat the crowds by arriving early to explore this paradise. Walk to the Lookout for panoramic views over Wineglass Bay. Then, you can choose to relax at Wineglass Bay beach, or if you are looking for something more adventurous, choose the challenging climb of Mt Amos or take a beach walk. We will also enjoy stunning views from Cape Tourville out to the Tasman Sea and back towards the pink granite peaks of the Hazards Mountains. Freycinet has more than stunning scenery to offer, and our guide will enlighten you throughout the day as to why this particular region is so special. Departing Freycinet, the road trip continues as we pass vineyards, farmlands, and stunning coastal scenery, arriving in Hobart later that afternoon.

Day 3: BRUNY ISLAND

With breathtaking beaches, unique wildlife, dramatic scenery and mouth-watering local cheese, honey, and oysters, it’s clear why Bruny Island is possibly the best daytrip experience from Hobart. Highlights today include South Bruny National Park with its amazing views, Truganini Lookout at The Neck, as well as exploring the pristine beach of Adventure Bay (with luck we will see unique white wallabies). This day is diverse, made even more special by our guide’s insights and storytelling, providing an authentic experience of what is a favourite destination for locals and visitors to Tasmania.

In Port Arthur, we’ll discover Tasmania’s convict past at the World Heritage Listed Historic Site (guided walk and harbour cruise included). Explore some of the world’s best-preserved convict ruins as well as it’s beautiful gardens within this open-air museum.
