Day 1

  • Mt Field National Park & Russell Falls
  • Lake St Clair
  • Tasmanian Wilderness World Heritage Area

It’s Jump time! We head north out of towards one of the world’s last great temperate rainforests at Mount Field National Park. The park is home to beautiful Russell Falls and some of the tallest trees in the world! If you’re after wildlife, look out for the cute Pademelon, (a bit like a mini-wallaby). Like so many things here, it’s only found in Tasmania.

Shortly afterwards we reach the famous Lake St Clair, on the eastern edge of Tasmania’s World Heritage Wilderness Area. It’s the deepest lake in Australia, so soak in the scenery and enjoy the peacefulness of lunch by the lake side (you might even see a platypus 🙂

From here we begin a drive through the stunning Tasmanian Wilderness World Heritage Area. The incredible views from Donaghy’s Hill stretch in all directions. Walking to the top, you’ll see the quartzite peak of Frenchmans Cap, and the iconic Franklin River winds its way through the valley below.

Overnight - Jump Holiday House @ Tullah

Day 2

  • Montezuma Falls (Tasmania's highest waterfall)
  • Rainforest walk
  • Strahan
  • Henty Dunes (for sand dune jumping!)

An action packed day today in the heart of Tassie’s wild West Coast. First up we hit the walking track to Montezuma Falls - Tasmania’s highest waterfall. The track winds its way through lush rainforest, following the route of an old railway.

The beautiful fishing town of Strahan is our lunch stop today - take the opportunity to immerse yourself in the history of what was once one of the most remote outposts of the British Empire.

Just north of here are the massive Henty Dunes - climb to the top for a wonderful view across the Southern Ocean! Below lies Ocean Beach,  Tasmania’s longest. The waves crashing on this beach last touched land on the other side of the world.

Overnight - Jump Holiday House @ Tullah

Day 3

  • Cradle Mountain
  • Sheffield
  • Honey & Salmon Tasting
  • Cataract Gorge, Launceston

You’ve got a number of walking options, from the easy jaunt around Dove Lake to the spectacular hike to the top of Marion’s Lookout - don’t forget to watch for the wombats, and Tasmanian devils that thrive in this part of the world!

After Cradle it’s time for lunch in the “Town of Murals” - Sheffield! As the host of a major annual art competition, many of the buildings have large scale artworks on their sides. Look out for the alpaca man!

After lunch it’s time to tantalise the taste buds - there are over 50 different honey’s to try at the Chudleigh Honey Farm! Stay gourmet as we cruise along to 41 Degrees South Aquaculture and try their delicious hot smoked salmon.

In the evening we reach Tasmania’s second largest city - Launceston. Why not take a wander and enjoy the wonderful architecture of the city or perhaps indulge  in one of the city’s many fine eating and drinking establishments?

Overnight - Launceston

Day 4

  • Bay of Fires
  • Pyengana Cheese tasting
  • Little penguins
  • Bicheno

Today we head east 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 4

  • Wineglass Bay
  • Wildlife Sanctuary (optional, $20pp)
  • Freycinet National Park
  • Cape Tourville
  • Coles Bay

This morning you have the opportunity to check out some unique Tasmanian fauna at East Coast Natureworld - soon after we arrive it’s feeding time for the Tasmanian devils, wombats, kangaroos, koalas and many more animals that call the park home. (Extra cost)

Now it’s time to pack a picnic lunch as we check out another Tassie icon - the gorgeous sparkling waters of Wineglass Bay. I hope you had your Weetbix because this is a walk that will get the heart pumping, with the reward of fantastic views at the top of the lookout. If you’ve still got some gas in the tank trek down to the famous beach itself - you won’t be disappointed!

In the afternoon we drive down the coast road towards Hobart, stopping at Kate's Berry Farm on the way.
