      Day 1: Hobart to Bicheno

      We make our way along the Great Eastern Drive to the stunningly beautiful Bay of Fires, with its turquoise waters, white sands, and orange lichen cloaked boulders. Weather permitting you can swim or simply stroll barefoot along the pristine sand. Further south we’ll visit a wildlife sanctuary where you’ll love seeing Tasmanian devils, as well as having close encounters with other unique wildlife. Explore the coastal fishing town of Bicheno, our home for tonight, and after dark you may want to join an evening viewing of the little penguins as they return from the sea to the shore (own cost). Overnight: Bicheno

      Day 2: Freycinet National Park to Hobart

      The scenery, colours and landscapes of Freycinet National Park are captivating. We arrive in the Park early, beating the crowds to the Lookout of Wineglass Bay. Choose a walk to your liking; the summit of Mt Amos offers a challenging hike, or you may wish to descend to Wineglass Beach or simply relax on a secluded beach. Later, we take the boardwalk to Cape Tourville which is one of Tassie’s ‘Great Short Walks’ due to its tremendous panoramic views of the Freycinet Peninsula including Wineglass Bay and the pink granite peaks of the Hazards mountains. We travel to Hobart after an incredible day exploring nature at its very best. Overnight: Hobart

      Day 3: Bruny Island

      With breathtaking beaches, unique wildlife, dramatic scenery and mouth-watering local cheese, honey, and oysters, it’s clear why Bruny Island is possibly the best daytrip experience from Hobart. Highlights today include South Bruny National Park with its amazing views, Truganini Lookout at The Neck, as well as exploring the pristine beach of Adventure Bay (with luck we will see unique white wallabies). This day is diverse, made even more special by our guide’s insights and storytelling, providing an authentic experience of what is a favourite destination for locals and visitors to Tasmania. Overnight: Hobart

      Day 4: Tasman Peninsula

      We’ll visit the charming, colonial village of Richmond, then head south to explore the Tasman Peninsula. At Pirates Bay Lookout we’ll get our first glimpse of the Peninsula with Cape Huay in the distance. In Tasman National Park we’ll take in the dramatic coastal scenery and geological formations of Tasman Arch, Devil’s Kitchen, and walk along the towering cliff line to the apt name Waterfall Bay, where waterfalls cascade into the sea from immense heights. From Remarkable Cave we’ll walk the windswept coastline to the moon-shaped Crescent Bay, with its staggering sand dunes and powerful ocean vistas; or you may choose to forego the walk to Crescent Bay in place of a cultural excursion to Port Arthur Historic Site (own cost) to learn about one of Australia’s best-preserved convict sites.
