Itinerary

Sample Itinerary

  • 1 Arrival in Launceston

    Arrive today and travel into Launceston city at your leisure. Your accommodation for the next 2 nights is booked and waiting at a perfectly located inner city hotel, 2 minutes walk from the main restaurant strip.

  • 2 Cradle Mountain (B, L)

    No need to check out this morning as we will return to Launceston for a second night. Today we day trip to explore the highlands landscape and the wondrous Cradle Mountain National Park. First up though is a stop at Sheffield – the famous township of murals. See the giant depiction of Gustav Weindorfer in his Cradle Mountain Chalet surrounded by local wildlife. There are dozens of artistic murals here to enjoy over a short tea/coffee break.

    After another scenic drive, we reach the highlands area & Cradle Mountain. Spend the majority of today exploring this wondrous park and the many fantastic walking tracks. Take a short drive into Dove Lake for breathtaking views of Cradle Mountain. Next, we offer a fully guided selection of walks to suit the group and weather. Some options include the Glacier Rock platform, the Boat Shed, the Pencil Pine Waterfall walk, the Enchanted Walk & Weindorfers Forest walk.

    This will be a great day of exploration for everyone. Depending on conditions other walking options might be a section of the Cradle Valley Boardwalk from Snake Hill or a stunning section of the famous Overland Track from Dove Lake to Ronnie Creek. There are many great, short walks today, all of them offering a rare opportunity to experience this pristine wilderness. Your guide will choose the most appropriate selection to suit the group & weather.

    ext visit the old “Waldheim Chalet” of pioneer Gustav Weindorfer, who’s efforts helped make Cradle Mountain world famous and bring public attention to this photographer’s paradise. In the afternoon a return drive to Launceston offers a chance to relax and enjoy the scenery as we descend off the highlands. Stop at Ashgrove dairy for a late afternoon snack before once again overnighting in the very heart of Launceston city.

  • 3 The Midlands to Hobart (B, L)

    First up we have a guided tour of Australia’s 3rd oldest city – Launceston. Enjoy a morning stroll at the lovely Cataract Gorge, a fantastic urban wilderness only minutes from the CBD and the jewel in Launceston’s crown. A driving tour around town will take in some of the most iconic old buildings and structures including the Penny Royal complex, the King Bridge, the Post office, and the Holy Trinity Anglican Church among others.

    Heading south today we journey down the Midlands HWY, a stunning drive through rolling countryside with fields of many different & colourful crops, grazing livestock, and mountainous terrain in the background. A stop in Ross is the first to see the beautiful old Ross Bridge – one of the prettiest in the state. At Oatlands see perhaps Australia’s best collection of convict-period sandstone buildings with over 90 old structures on display in the main street. The Callington Mill has recently been fully refurbished and the striking Windmill is definitely worth a short stroll and photograph.

    A scenic drive further south will have us arrive in the Coal Valley for lunch at our favourite local vineyard. Enjoy wine tastings with your
    sample-style platter of locally sourced-produce. Our chosen vineyard today does not export wine to any restaurants or liquor stores
    anywhere in the country including Hobart, which is why we enjoy providing a local experience for our guests.

    From here we continue into Hobart to take in the Hobart waterfront and Battery Point areas while viewing many of Hobart’s oldest convict-built structures. Head to the summit of Mt Wellington (1271m) boasting spectacular panoramic views in every direction. For those travelling in the colder months, we might be lucky enough to summit amongst drifts of white snow lining the road.

    Check-in tonight at our luxurious 4-star accommodation for the next 3 nights – the Movenpick Hobart.

  • 4 Port Arthur & the Tasman Peninsula (B, L)

    Today we explore the beautiful Tasman Peninsula and Tasman National Park area. First up though we stop at the township of Richmond. See the stone arch construction of the Richmond Bridge, built by the convicts in 1823 this is Australia’s oldest bridge still in operation.

    A scenic morning drive will take us out of town towards the blue waters of the Tasmania National Park. Pirates Bay lookout is a great first-up stop for coffee & morning snacks with views for miles along the rugged coastline.

    The Tasman National Park boasts towering sea cliffs and a wealth of cultural history as we venture south. Learn about Eaglehawk Neck – the site of the infamous Dogline – as we cross onto the Tasman Peninsula. We then explore some of nature’s true wonders with short, scenic walks at Tasman’s Arch and Devils Kitchen. Continuing on we will lunch at the colourful Port Arthur Lavender Farm where guests can enjoy fantastic food and photograph the best lavender fields in Tasmania’s south.

    Our afternoon activities will be a fully guided tour around the Port Arthur Historic Site. Explore many of the original buildings as we learn about the early convicts and the role they played in Tasmania’s history. Enter the convict Church, The Asylum, and the Silent Prison to name a few. Learn about Point Puer (the juvenile boys prison), the Isle of the Dead graveyard, and the Port Arthur timber industry while enjoying a short, scenic harbour cruise to view the site as incoming convicts would have. An early evening drive returns us to Hobart for another stay in comfortable and very central city lodgings.

  • 5 Bruny Island (B, L)

    Today is an adventure to Bruny Island – Hobart’s most famous day trip option. Guests have the choice of 2 different itineraries depending on how adventurous you feel or if you prefer land or water based activities. Both will offer a memorable excursion to this stunning little island.

    Option 1. Bruny Island Traveller – A full-day trip from Hobart, this is a spectacular tour with nature, wilderness, coast & heritage included. Taste your way across Bruny Island, visiting some of our renowned artisan producers of cheese, wine, beer, fudge, honey & oysters on an all-inclusive, gourmet, wilderness adventure whilst discovering the spectacular scenery and cultural heritage of Tasmania’s favourite island. Visit the iconic lookout at The Neck, walk through the ancient Mavista Rainforest, and keep an eye out for rare white wallabies.

    Option 2. Bruny Island Wilderness Cruise – For the more adventurous a full-day tour of Bruny Island includes the amazing 3-hour fast boat cruise around the rugged Tassie coastline. Experience the awesome power of the mighty Southern Ocean, towering cliffs, and deep sea caves. Encounter the region’s remarkable wildlife, keeping a close lookout for sea eagles, dolphins, seals, and a variety of sea birds. Amazing photographic opportunities abound. The trip includes pickup in Hobart at 7.45 am, a scenic guided bus tour and ferry crossing to Bruny Island, morning tea, 3-hour wilderness cruise, lunch, and return to Hobart around 5.30 pm.

    Friday night in Hobart city awaits with plenty of restaurant & entertainment options for those who enjoy the city nightlife.

  • 6 Salamanca Markets, Hobart (B)

    The world-famous Salamanca markets are held every Saturday and we wouldn’t want to miss them. After an included breakfast explore the market at your own leisure and sample the abundance of street foods. Wander the rows of market stalls displaying woodwork, arts & crafts, fresh produce, coffee, wine, cooked foods and more. This is Tasmania’s most famous market and operates every Saturday for the entire year. Salamanca has a well-preserved collection of convict-built, sandstone buildings connected by narrow laneways, staircases, and interesting little spaces to explore. In addition to the markets, the Salamanca area has fantastic art galleries, cafes, and retail stores. You are free to discover the markets & surrounds at your leisure… perhaps a wander across the dock area or up into the quaint suburb of Battery Point?

    This officially concludes your 6-Day Scenic Tasmania adventure. We are sure you will have gained a real taste and appreciation for this great little island. Thank you for joining us. Hotel check-out is by 11 am. For those interested in additional activities and sightseeing, luggage can be stored in the hotel reception luggage room at no additional charge.
