An early start from Hobart sees us heading deep into the wild west coast of Tasmania. After passing through the town of New Norfolk, we explore Mount Field National Park by walking amongst some of the tallest trees on the planet, standing beneath the beautiful Russel Falls, and searching for platypus. Our drive passes though the Tasmania Wilderness World Heritage Area with a stop at Franklin Gordon Wild Rivers National Park where we’ll stroll along the Franklin River and under Nelson Falls. We’ll then explore the eerie historical mining town of Queenstown before reaching Strahan in the afternoon. In Strahan you’ll have free time to explore the township settled on the beautiful Macquarie Harbor.
From Strahan, we drive though temperate rainforest and arrive at the spectacular Cradle Mountain National Park. Get your cameras ready because we’ll be spotting wild wombats before hiking the popular Dove Lake Circuit or Marions Lookout for the adventurous. A short drive then brings us into Launceston where we’ll have the option to explore Cataract Gorge after checking into our accommodation for the night.
We start our day with a scenic drive to the Bay of Fires where you’ll get to enjoy the many beautiful beaches it has to offer. Explore the beach, rock hop amongst the iconic orange lichen covered granite boulders and enjoy the crystal clear turquoise water. In the afternoon, we stop in at a wildlife sanctuary to watch a ferocious Tasmanian Devil feeding experience. We finish our day with a drive to Bicheno (known as the next Bryon Bay) arriving early to explore the blowhole, coastal loop walk and whales lookout. You also have the option to go on a Little Penguin guided tour at dusk (pre-booking required – contact Wild Tasmania Tours to book).
A short drive from Bicheno sees us arrive at Freycinet National Park – home of the famous Wineglass Bay. We have the option of hiking Wineglass Bay Lookout and Beach, or Hazards Circuit or Mount Amos (weather dependent). We then stop in at Cape Tourville before completing the Great Eastern Drive back to Hobart. Our tour ends upon arrival in Hobart (approximately 5:30pm) where we say farewell to our new tour friends. If you are staying in Hobart for the night, make sure to check out the renowned Salamanca Markets on Saturdays.
Flashpacker accommodation – we get it, hostels aren’t for everyone, and so the accommodation selected for our 4 Day Wild Tasmania Tour is a mix of private and shared accommodation outside of the hostel world – think bush cabins, capsule hotels and so forth. Booking options include private rooms with private or shared facilities or multi-share rooms (two to four people per room) with shared facilities.
Small group tour – when we say small group tour, we mean it! With a maximum of 13 people, you get to experience the full benefits of each destination – less crowded hiking trails, shorter wait times and more time spent enjoying what Tasmania has to offer.
Hiking based tour – we aim to do the bigger and most famous hiking trails while visiting Tasmania’s icons. Rest assured there are often easier walks available depending on your fitness level or if that’s what you prefer. We offer a range of guided and self-guided walks depending on group dynamics.
Hobart to Hobart – no need to worry about organising your own return transport.
