3 Day Wild West Coast Hobart To Launceston Tour
Tour itinerary - 3 Days
Hobart to Strahan
From the tranquil Derwent Valley, we’ll journey to Mt Field NP, where we’ll walk among some of the world’s tallest flowering trees and visit the beautiful Russell Falls. Other highlights today include a stop at Lake St Clair, which is Australia’s deepest freshwater lake, and traversing the pristine Franklin-Gordon Wild River NP. Located deep within the massive Tasmanian World Heritage Area, this drive into the Western Wilds offers breathtaking views of rainforests and rugged mountain scenery. We stop briefly at Queenstown with its ‘moonscape’ and historic buildings, to get a taste of Tassie’s rich mining history. Our home for two nights is the harbourside village of Strahan. This beautiful and historic town is one of the most picturesque places to stay in all of Tasmania.
Strahan and the Tarkine wilderness
Tasmania’s West Coast offers untouched wilderness. We’ll explore the Tarkine rainforest and Tasmania’s highest waterfall, Montezuma Falls, followed by the Henty Sand Dunes. Alternatively, choose the renowned Gordon River Cruise (own cost). Later, we’ll visit Ocean Beach and breathe the freshest air in the world. Back in Strahan, our guide knows the best spot to look for platypus at dusk or dawn.
Cradle Mountain to Launceston
This World Heritage Area is an alpine wilderness carved by ancient glaciers. It is a hiker’s paradise; you may wish to choose the challenging and scenic track to Marion’s Lookout, or an impressive but easier option is the magnificent Dove Lake Circuit. We’ll look for wombats at Ronny Creek, before departing Cradle Mountain to travel to Launceston via Sheffield (the Town of Murals).
