This 2 day is a perfect way to travel from Launceston to Hobart. You visit the Bay of Fires, Wineglass Bay, Freycinet National Park and you pop into East Coast Natureworld to see the animals. The trip back to Hobart is along the Great Eastern Drive.
Offering a complete contrast to Tassie’s western rainforests, the east coast boasts sugar white sandy beaches and crystal clear water. With highlights like the famous Wineglass Bay and the magical Bay of Fires, it’s an awesome experience and an awesome bargain! We guarantee EVERY TOUR DEPARTURE.
Day 1 - This morning we head north-east to the incredible Sideling Lookout, stop to admire the amazing memorial carvings at Legerwood and taste the cheesy delights of the Pyengana Dairy Company.
In the afternoon it’s time for the highlight of the day - the stunning Bay of Fires. Named Lonely Planet’s Number 1 destination for 2009, the bay has some of the whitest sand and clearest water you’ll ever see. Take your time to explore the beach, swim in the turquoise waters or simply admire the view over a coffee!
In the evening we arrive at our accommodation in the seaside town of Bicheno. As darkness falls head to the beach to see the fairy penguins come ashore to nest.
Overnight - Bicheno
Day 2 - This morning there’s an optional activity (extra cost $20pp) to check out animals at East Coast Natureworld, a popular wildlife sanctuary. We arrive at feeding time for the Tasmanian devils, wombats, kangaroos, koalas and many more animals that call the park home.
Now it’s time to pack a picnic lunch as we see another Tassie icon – the sparkling waters of Wineglass Bay in Freycinet National Park. I hope you had your Weetbix because this is a walk to get the heart pumping, with the reward of fantastic views from the lookout.
This afternoon we travel down the scenic Great Eastern Drive back to Hobart with a stop at Kate’s Berry Farm at Swansea – a great afternoon tea stop.
