ITINERARY

DAY 1 :: LAUNCESTON TO BICHENO
Travelling northeast of Launceston, we stop at the sweetly fragranced, rolling purple hills of the Bridestowe Estate Lavender Farm (seasonal). Continuing through the changing landscape of heritage farms, rainforest and mining towns we spend the afternoon at the breathtaking Bay of Fires. Here you can take a stroll along the gleaming white sands or a swim in the clear turquoise water (weatherpermitting). Tonight we stay in the seaside township of Bicheno. After dinner, you can choose to take a tour to see little penguins nesting (at own expense). (LD)

DAY 2 :: BICHENO TO PT ARTHUR
This morning we drive into the stunning Freycinet National Park for sweeping views over Wineglass Bay. You may choose to hike to Wineglass Beach via the lookout or for those more adventurous; a hike to the top of Mount Amos. Travelling south to Port Arthur we enjoy the stunning views of the Tasman Peninsula along the way. Tonight we stay at Pt Arthur. While there, take a spine chilling Port Arthur Ghost Tour for a glimpse into the historic past of this penal colony (at own expense). (BLD)
