Start your adventure in the romantic harbour town of Hobart. With its relaxed lifestyle and haunting history, it’s no surprise that Australia’s second-oldest city has been voted one of the best in the world to visit. Discover why with a city sights tour, before getting to know your fellow travellers and driver/guide this evening at a welcome reception.

Stay: Two Nights, Travelodge Hotel Hobart

HOT TIP!

Be enticed by Hobart’s flavoursome specialty, the curry scallop pie, at Jackman & McRoss or from the roving Smith's Speciality Pies van.


Venture to Port Arthur Historic Site, Australia’s most intact and notorious convict prison. See the sandstone Penitentiary, before visiting the Convict Church and Separate Prison, which was built to punish prisoners through 23-hours-a-day isolation and sensory deprivation. Then, you’ll be invited to join in on up-close animal encounters and wildlife adventures at the Tasmanian Devil Unzoo. Tonight, how about joining the locals at one of the boutique bars.

This morning, wave to the locals as you roll into Russell Falls in Mount Field National Park. After a short walk to Tasmania’s prettiest and most photographed waterfall, you’ll reach Lake St Clair for a leisurely stroll. Part of the Tasmanian Wilderness World Heritage Area, Lake St Clair is every walker’s dream. Then, it’s onward to Queenstown, once the world’s richest mining town.

Follow the secluded wilderness highway, the Gordon River, from the comfort of a river cruise. Sit back and relax as you glide across Macquarie Harbour and enter the Franklin-Gordon Wild Rivers National Park, before stopping at Sarah Island.

HOT TIP!

Meet the Japanese macaques at Launceston’s City Park, a gift from sister city Ikeda City in Japan.


Make a beeline for Cradle Mountain-Lake St Clair National Park, before visiting Waldheim Chalet and marvelling at the beauty of Dove Lake. From here, set off for the remarkable Peppers Cradle Mountain Lodge, where a delicious lunch awaits. It's then onwards to Sheffield, in the foothills of Mount Roland, to celebrate the rural town's quirky murals. The hungry visitor is spoiled for choice this evening, as there's nothing quite like eating food where it's caught, grown and made. Spend the evening in Launceston.

After a morning at Cataract Gorge, you’ll stop at Bridestowe Lavender Estate for a guided tour. Here, walk within the rolling waves of violet as delicate tendrils of lavender dance in the breeze. Then, you’ll travel to St Helens, the state’s second-largest fishing port and game fishing capital.
