Bay of Fires Tour from Hobart

Discovering Tasmania: Maddie’s 4-day adventure with Wild Tasmania Tours

Known for its pristine wilderness, rugged coastlines, and vibrant culture, Tasmania offers a unique experience for those seeking adventure and natural beauty.

Join us as we dive into the journey of Maddie, a fellow past passenger hailing from Canada, who embarked on our 4 day Wild Tasmania Tour.  In this review, we’ll follow Maddie’s footsteps as she shares her experiences and the unforgettable moments that made her Tasmania adventure a must-do for every traveller’s bucket list.

“I arrived in Hobart and was greeted at the airport with a comfortable airport transfer I organised through Wild Tasmania Tours. 

I chose the 4 day tour with Wild Tasmania Tours as it allowed me to get around Tasmania and allowed me to spend a couple of days after the tour to explore Hobart in particular the Salamanca Market on Saturday.

Day 1

The tour started bright and early on a Tuesday morning where I was met by my tour guide, Trent, to set off on our adventure. It was a small group with travellers from Australia and overseas, ranging in ages and travelling experiences – it was a great mix of people.

We all jumped in the bus and travelled to Mount Field National Park. We trekked amongst some of the tallest trees on the planet, with the trail leading us to the most amazing waterfall I have ever seen – Russel Falls.

Day 1 was then made up of a number of short drives and stops to walk in the wilderness. More waterfalls and pristine, untouched wilderness. This is what I pictured Tasmania to be like.

After a long trip, we arrived in the township of Strahan – our home for the night. We stayed in a comfortable cabin. This town is like no other on the planet. Picture an old town on a harbor surrounded by rainforest and small jetty or two with old wooden cray fishing boats attached.

Cradle Mountain tour from HobartDay 2

After a good night’s rest, we set off to Cradle Mountain. We took a shuttle bus to Ronny Creek, where our guide spotted three wombats!

From here I decided to walk around Dove Lake, which is at the base of Cradle Mountain. You get to see many different habitats along the way and we were lucky to spot a platypus briefly surfacing in the lake. I really enjoyed the Ballroom Forest section of the trail. 

Next stop was the city of Launceston. We stopped off at Cataract Gorge before checking into the capsule style accommodation. I had always wanted to try one of these, and I must say I slept very well!

Day 3

It was Day 3 already and we were off venturing to the Bay of Fires. I had seen lots of photos of this place and figured it was a must see – the beaches definitely didn’t disappoint. Picture white sand, turquoise crystal-clear water, small waves lapping at the shore, blue sky with giant granite boulders framing the beaches. The boulders are covered in orange lichen, which creates an awesome contrast of colour – it’s a photographer’s paradise! The beach swim was glorious! Yes, it’s cold, but it’s so nice in the crystal clear water once you’re in. 

Next stop was the Wildlife Sanctuary. This was a really cool experience. I had never seen a Tasmanian Devil and to witness a feeding frenzy of Tasmanian Devils was next level.

Bicheno would have to be my favourite overnight stop on the trip. Arriving mid-afternoon, I was able to explore the coastline and stunning beaches. The Whalers Lookout offers a spectacular view of the town, beaches and gulch from height. Dinner was local fish and chips, and then it was time to see the Little Penguins make their nightly ritual from the ocean to their burrows. There must have been hundreds of them! Cuteness overload.

4 Day Tasmania tourDay 4

We drove 30 minutes to Freycinet National Park. Our guide Trent took us on a trek up a steep track with some spectacular views of Wineglass Bay and down to the beach. The return walk took about 3 hours with a couple of stops, so be prepared for some hiking, but the view was worth it. If you’re not into hiking, you can return from the Wineglass Bay lookout which cuts out the 1,000 steps down to the beach.  

We then took a scenic coastal drive back to Hobart and said farewell to our new friends and guide.  Our guide Trent did an awesome job. The days are long and I don’t know how he does it but it suits him well. I tipped him with a local pinot noir wine that I picked up at one of our stops. Thanks, Trent!

As we arrived in Hobart on a Friday night, it was the perfect ending to a great tour as I got to spend the night and the next few days exploring the best of Hobart – Friday Night food markets at Franklin Square with live music, Salamanca Markets, Battery Point and MONA (Museum of Old and New Art).

I dream of going back to Tasmania or ‘Tassie’ as the locals call it. Until next time, happy travels!”
