Tour Itinerary

DAY 1 LAUNCESTON

Meals

  • Welcome to Australia's smallest state, fascinating Tasmania! (Fllights to arrive prior to 4.30pm). You’ll kick off your trip along the east coast of the island in Launceston and get to know the city and surrounds exploring the beautifully preserved historic cityscape, Victorian architecture, and century-old parks. See colonial paintings and the extensive zoology, botany, and geology collections at the Queen Victoria Museum and Art Gallery. Then kick back and indulge in the city’s vibrant culinary scene at one of its waterfront restaurants or on a visit to James Boag Brewery located in the heritage listed Tamar Hotel or Josef Chromy winery. Or dive into nature at Cataract Gorge exploring its hiking trails and suspension bridge, jumping in its swimming pool, or enjoying the views from the world's longest single span chairlift. Tonight, meet your Travel Director and group for a Welcome Reception at The Avenue Restaurant & Lobby Bar for a Tasmanian inspired menu. Toast to your travels and grab drink a local beer, wines, cider, gin or whisky from the lobby bar.
DAY 2 LAUNCESTON - BICHENO

Meals

  • Begin your day breathing in the scent of lavender on a decadent, sensory experience at Bridestowe Lavender Estate, producer of high-quality lavender since 1922. On your tour with a Local Specialist discover the farm that produces one of the only single flower honeys in the world and watch the oil extraction process that dates back to the 1920s - paying tribute to the farm’s inspiration from the lavender fields of southern France. Treat yourself to a homemade lavender ice cream, stroll the fragrant fields, and time-travel viewing vintage memorabilia in the Old Tractor Shed. Continue to Legerwood Carved Memorial Trees site, a tribute to the brave Tasmania soldiers who lost their lives in World War I, to stroll along the avenue of trees and delve into the role the ANZAC soldiers played at Gallipoli. Spend lunchtime in St. Helens before following the picturesque East Coast to Bicheno. Tonight, take a short walk down to the water's edge to view Little Penguins in their natural environment.
DAY 3 BICHENO - TRIABUNNA

Meals

  • Begin your day filled with nature with a drive through dry eucalypt forests to Cape Tourville where you’ll stretch your legs and take in the views of blue water and golden beaches. Sure to be a highlight of your Tasmanian getaway and the best way to view the area, you’ll take to the water for a four-hour cruise around the breathtaking Freycinet Peninsula. Your Local Specialist knows all the best places to spot wildlife as they take you from the gentle shores of Coles Bay past waterfalls, sea caves, towering pink granite cliffs, beaches fringed by dense bush, and through the inner passage of remote Schouten Island - home to penguins and short tailed shearwaters. You’ll then pull into the pristine waters of Wineglass Bay lined by white sand, where you’ll anchor for a gourmet ploughman's lunch. This Make Travel Matter Experience contributes to wildlife preservation. Soak in the peaceful scenery while learning about and keeping on wildlife watch for sea eagles, pods of bow-surfing dolphins, cormorants, seals lazing on granite boulders, and even migrating humpback and Southern Right whales breaching on the turquoise waters. Back on dry land, pass through the seaside towns of Swansea and Triabunna before arriving at your hotel overlooking stunning Maria Island.
DAY 4 TRIABUNNA - HOBART

  • Up at at ‘em this morning for a day of charming towns and beautiful landscapes. Visit Freestone Point, once home to the world's largest wood chip mill. This 43-hectare waterfront site is now managed by a group intent on charting a sustainable path. Witness a 'Welcome to Country', by the original owners of Oyster Bay, connecting you to the stories of the palawa Aboriginal people. After a tour of the market garden, where you'll visit beehives and worm farms, you'll have the opportunity to join us in a sustainability programme by assisting the horticulturists with propagating seeds collected onsite, which will be planted at the mill to regenerate the entire area. It’s a “get your hands dirty” experience that’s a lot of fun and will fuel your passion to preserve these beautiful places and one of our MAKE TRAVEL MATTER® Experiences. Then it's time for a bite to eat in the historic township of Richmond before checking in to your hotel in Hobart for an evening at leisure. On your first night in Hobart, explore the area with a stroll and grabbing a bite to eat around lively Constitution Dock.

Your guide will show you the ruins, cathedral, and cells of Port Arthur while sharing stories of its beginnings as a small timber station and the convicts who left their mark on this former a place of hardship and punishment - some of whom also contributed to the shipbuilding industry. After an insightful morning, return to Hobart past the craggy cliffs of Pirate’s Bay Lookout and unusual rock formations of Tasman’s Arch, Devil’s Kitchen, and the Blowhole. Watch the waves swirl and churn, pausing to appreciate its raw beauty that’s unlike anywhere else in the world.

  • Your last full day is yours to see the best of Hobart and its surroundings. Perhaps visit the Tasmanian Museum & Art Gallery, occupying one of Australia's most historically significant sites and home to an eye-watering 800,000 objects ranging from fossils to fine art. You could also choose to explore outside of Hobart on a MAKE TRAVEL MATTER® Experience, a cruise along the rugged coastline of Bruny Island viewing Australia’s highest sea cliffs and craggy formations, listening to the sounds of ‘Breathing Rock,’ delving into deep sea caves, and passing through the narrow passage where the Tasman Sea meets the Southern Ocean. This journey in Tasmania’s wilderness may also reward you with seal, dolphin, migrating whale, and sea bird sightings. As you conclude your Tassie travels, toast to your encounters with the island’s history, culture, and natural beauty over a three-course seafood feast Farewell Dinner in one of Hobart's popular restaurants, Mures Upper Deck overlooking Constitution Dock.
