10 Day Tour around Tasmania



Circumnavigate the island with this all inclusive 10 day tour. Taking in all the rugged beauty that Tasmania has to offer, this tour lets you explore every region of Tasmania, from North to South, and East to West.


Explore Hobart
After arriving in Hobart, take time to explore - taste our cool-climate wines with a visit to vineyards along the Southern Tasmanian Wine Route and discover the perfectly preserved Georgian village of Richmond. See the contemporary artwork on display at The Henry Jones Art Hotel, Australia's first dedicated art hotel, and call in to the galleries and cafes of Salamanca Place. If your stay includes a Saturday, Salamanca Market is a must-see.
Tasman Peninsula
Follow the Arthur Highway into history as you explore the Tasman Peninsula, with its tall sea crags, magnificent coastal scenery and rich convict heritage. Allow plenty of time to wander through the Port Arthur Historic Site with its intriguing interactive interpretation centre. Explore other important heritage sites along the Convict Trail, including the Coal Mines Historic Site and Eaglehawk Neck, location of the notorious dog-line. Return to Hobart.
Hobart to Strahan
Take the journey into World Heritage wilderness. Stop at Lake St Clair for a short lakeside walk then continue to the picturesque West Coast port of Strahan. Experience the world's best wilderness railway journey as you chug through spectacular rainforested gorges to Queenstown on the West Coast Wilderness Railway. In the evening, enjoy a meal of fresh local seafood - dining options include View 42 Restaurant and Bar, Hamer's Hotel or the Fish Cafe on the Wharf. At dusk, there's an opportunity to see Little Penguins on The Bonnet Island Experience.
Explore Strahan
There's plenty to explore in and around Strahan - don't miss the award-winning cruise to the Gordon River aboard the fast, comfortable Lady Jane Franklin II - or join the full-day signature experience Piners and Miners, travelling by unique Hi-Rail hybrid 4WD to discover the natural and cultural heritage of the region. After a riverside walk and gourmet barbecue by the harbour, voyage back to Strahan by fast cruiser. In the evening, see 'The Ship That Never Was' play.
Strahan to Cradle Mountain
Take the road north from Strahan through the boom & bust mining town of Zeehan, with its fascinating Pioneers Museum. Head off towards Cradle Mountain and explore the National Park - take a scenic helicopter flight, see the famous profile of the peak reflected in the waters of Dove Lake on a canoe tour, or take the easy, short walk around the lake. After a day in the wilderness, relax in the hot tub or enjoy a massage or beauty treatment at Calm Day Spa.
Explore Cradle Mountain
Spend the day exploring the Cradle Mountain area - venture further into the mountains (if the day is clear, try for the summit of Cradle), get close to Tasmanian devils at Devils @ Cradle, browse through the spectacular displays in The Wilderness Gallery, and join an evening spotlight tour to meet the local wildlife.
Explore Launceston
Take a leisurely drive to reach Launceston, northern Tasmania's gracious city. Check into Country Club Tasmania then discover Launceston's many attractions - the exciting new Inveresk Cultural Precinct, the city's beautiful parks and gardens, the Cataract Gorge Reserve, or take a drive through country lanes to visit historic Woolmer's Estate and see a 19th century working farm in action. In the evening, dine at Country Club Tasmania’s award-winning Terrace Restaurant.
Launceston to Freycinet
Follow the Northern Tasmanian Wine Route along the Tamar River then east to Pipers River region wineries, then travel via George Town, Bridport, Scottsdale and Derby to St Helens on the East Coast. On the coast, head towards the rugged granite peaks of The Hazards in the Freycinet National Park. In the afternoon, take a cruise to see dolphins and seabirds, visit an oyster farm, or paddle a sea kayak along the sheltered coastline, and enjoy a local sparkler on the deck at Freycinet Lodge as the sun sets.
Explore Freycinet
Consider the full-day signature experience Wineglass to Wine Glass - with your guide and a maximum of eight guests, climb to the saddle and descend to walk on the famous Wineglass Bay beach, then cross the peninsula to enjoy a gourmet lunch of local specialties in a secluded open-air pavilion. Explore the beach before enjoying a 30 minute scenic coastal cruise back to Freycinet Lodge.
Freycinet to Hobart
Head south along the coast to Hobart. Take the road to the Pinnacle on Mt Wellington for superb views of the city and harbour - or drive southward on the Huon Trail to experience the spectacular Tahune AirWalk, a slender walkway above the treetops of riverside rainforest.
