Coveting the world’s cleanest air and water, Tasmania is also home to some of Australia’s wildest natural attractions. Many are in the west, a part of the state few other travellers venture. On this Hobart to Launceston tour, you’ll cruise World Heritage-listed rainforest carved by rivers, explore Tassie’s tallest peak and bask in Russell Falls’ beauty. Stellar food and wine await, when it’s time to refuel.

Iconic Sites

From Cataract Gorge to the Gordon River, Cradle Mountain to ‘The Nut’, Tasmania is not short on natural attractions.

Natural Wonders

World Heritage-listed wilderness is your playground in Mount Field National Park, a soul-stirring union of soaring eucalypts and thundering waterfalls.

Itinerary : 

DAY 1: Arrival Hobart - Welcome to Hobart

 Your Tasmanian holiday begins today with an afternoon tour of Hobart. You’ll see historic Battery Point, Salamanca Place, take a wander through 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.

Hotel: Wrest Point 

Included Meals: Dinner

DAY 2: Hobart-Strahan 

This morning, you’ll head west to New Norfolk and magnificent Mt. Field National Park. Here, you'll take a stroll 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 Macquarie Harbour, a waterway six times the size of Sydney Harbour, Strahan is the gateway to the World Heritage listed Franklin- Gordon Wild Rivers National Park.

Hotel: Strahan Village

Included Meals: Breakfast, Dinner

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 Button-grass 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. After dinner tonight, you may choose to do an optional animal night spotting tour or perhaps take advantage of a rare opportunity to see Tasmanian Devils feeding after dark.

Hotel: Cradle Mountain Hotel

Included Meals: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner

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 Bennett’s 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 this evening is Smithton.

Hotel: Tall Timbers

Included Meals: Breakfast, Dinner

DAY 5: Smithton - Launceston 

Travel along the picturesque northwest coast visiting townships such as Burnie and Penguin where you’ll stop for morning tea and get a chance to wander around the shops and beachfront.  Continue on to Ulverstone before heading inland to Sheffield, home to over 60 murals depicting the area’s rich history. You’ll learn about dairy production methods at the award-winning Ashgrove Tasmanian Farm on your way to Launceston, Tasmania’s ‘northern capital’.

  Hotel: Best Western Plus Launceston

  Included Meals: Breakfast

DAY 6: Farewell from Launceston 

This morning visit the unique natural formation of the Cataract Gorge, home to the longest single-span chairlift in the world. You may choose to take the easy walk around the First Basin and across the historic suspension bridge, or why not relax in one of the gorge’s cafes and just soak up the tranquillity? 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. Alternatively, why not stay local with a visit to the Art Gallery or the historic Tramway Museum?  Your journey concludes this afternoon.
