Your Itinerary

Tasman Bridge Hobart

Day 1 - Welcome to Hobart

Welcome to Tassie! Upon arrival at Hobart airport, pick up your rental car and drive to your hotel. We have nothing planned for you today, so you can get accustomed to your new surroundings. (The Lodge on Elizabeth, Standard Room)

Day 2 - Hobart

Enjoy your day in Hobart. Either visit the famous MONA (the Museum of Old and New Art) to marvel at Australia’s largest privately owned art collection, or stroll among the pretty 19th century sandstone warehouses of Sullivans Cove along the waterfront to Salamanca Place. The Salamanca Markets take place here every Saturday (8.30am-3pm), when more than 300 stallholders sell everything from fresh produce to arts and crafts.

Freycinet Wineglass Bay

Day 3 - Hobart to Freycinet National Park

Drive 120 kilometres north today – the views of Great Oyster Bay and Maria Island along the way are incredible. Once at the National Park, choose whatever walk suits you, ranging from the easy 10 minute walk to Sleepy Bay to the challenging three hour (return) walk to the summit of Mount Amos. Follow the Wineglass Bay lookout walk for spectacular views over the blond sandy arc and ice-blue water of Wineglass Bay. (Freycinet Lodge, One Room Cabin)

Day 4 - Freycinet National Park to Launceston

Drive 90 minutes north to St Helens, where you can swim, surf or eat the freshest seafood. From St Helens it’s a short drive to Binalong Bay, the gateway to the Bay of Fires. This is a beautiful region of sandy beaches flanked by orange lichen-covered granite boulders. Then, head to Launceston, roughly 100 kilometres away. In town you can visit art galleries and museums, while just a short walk from the city centre lies Cataract Gorge. (Peppers Seaport Hotel, River View Studio)

Day 5 - Launceston to Stanley

From Launceston it’s a 30 minute drive west to the historic riverside town of Deloraine. Then drive north for another 45 minutes until you hit Devonport, where you can stroll the waterfront, surf at the Bluff and row or sail the Mersey River. See kangaroos, wallabies, wombats and even a Tasmanian devil at Narawntapu National Park. Head back along the coast for a leisurely hour long drive to Stanley, a fishing village framed by a volcanic outcrop. Ride the Nut Chairlift to explore the plateau – stunning views await. (Stanley Seaview Inn, Seaview Room)

Day 6 - Stanley to Cradle Mountain

From Stanley, travel two hours inland to the World Heritage-listed wilderness of Cradle Mountain – Lake St. Clair National Park. Climb Cradle Mountain or walk around the mirrored waters of Dove Lake. Alternatively, go fly fishing in the clear mountain streams and Dove Lake between September and April, or spot wallabies, wombats and possums on a nocturnal wildlife tour. (Cradle Mountain Hotel, Standard Room)

Cradle Mountain

Day 7 - Cradle Mountain

We have planned a scenic helicoper ride for you today. The Cradle Mountain and Fury Gorge Adventure begins with views of the picturesque Dove- and Crater Lakes, with the splendour of Cradle Mountain behind. The flight then takes you west as the helicopter descends and twists its way through the valleys and rivers to the entrance of Australia’s deepest gorge. From this jaw dropping gorge we climb our way up to the plateau to see the entire southwest mountain range unfold before our eyes.

Day 8 - Cradle Mountain to Strahan

This morning, follow the scenic route south along Anthony Road. This 100 kilometre drive, passing through forests and shimmering lakes, will steer you to Queenstown which once held the world’s richest gold and copper mine. Just 45 minutes drive from Queenstown sits harbour-side Strahan, the gateway to Tasmania’s World Heritage-listed wild west. Spend the afternoon kayaking on Macquarie Harbour or walk along windswept Ocean Beach, the longest beach in Tasmania. (Strahan Village, Hilltop Standard)

Day 9 - Gordon River

This morning, board your cruise along the world famous Gordon River. The ancient, mirror like waters meander down from their source in the Central Highlands, through a breathtaking World Heritage river cape of temperate rainforest and mountain crag, to the mouth of Macquarie Harbour. In the afternoon, travel along the Lyell Highway back to Hobart, back through the heart of Tasmania’s World Heritage-listed wilderness. (Hotel Grand Chancellor Hobart, Harbour View Room)
