Tour ID: 10053035
Enjoy the picturesque beaches, stunning scenery and magical locations such as the Bay of Fires, Freycinet National Park and Wineglass Bay. You may be tempted to paddle in the clear blue water, perhaps even swim (conditions permitting), or maybe just relax on one of the secluded beaches. There will be the history lesson at Port Arthur and be glad you never called this place home! No visit to Tasmania is complete without seeing a Tassie Devil and this tour takes you to Bonorong Wildlife Sanctuary for you to meet them.
Day 1: LAUNCESTON > BICHENO
We make our way to the East Coast and the beautiful Bay of Fires. If the conditions are right, this is the perfect place for a swim. Tasmania’s most scenic coastal drive takes you from St Helens to Bicheno, where we visit a wildlife sanctuary to meet the iconic Tasmanian devil. Tonight, you may want to join an evening viewing of the Little Penguins (optional at your own expense and seasonal).
Day 2: FREYCINET NATIONAL PARK > HOBART
An early start means we are the first to the Wineglass Bay lookout, beating the crowds and the heat for that postcard photo. Relax on the secluded beach or choose the more challenging Mt Amos or Hazards Beach walk. We continue further along the scenic east coast via the seaside towns of Swansea and Orford as we make our way to Hobart.
Overnight: Hobart (Breakfast)
Day 3: PORT ARTHUR HISTORIC SITE
After a quick look at Australia’s best preserved colonial village, Richmond, we head south to explore
Tasmania’s ruthless convict past at the World Heritage listed Port Arthur Historic Site (guided walk
and harbour cruise included). Rich in visual history, learn of the chilling life as a convict in the
restored sandstone prison buildings and preserved ruins.
