ITINERARY

DAY 1 :: HOBART TO STRAHAN
First we travel to Mount Field National Park, where we stretch our legs on the Russell Falls and Tall Trees walks. We continue on to Lake St Clair for a view of Australia’s deepest lake. On our way to Strahan we hike and explore the Franklin Gordon National Park. We spend tonight in our own exclusive accommodation in the historic coastal township of Strahan where your guide will fill you in on the amazing history of ‘pining, mining and convicts’! (LD)

DAY 2 :: STRAHAN TO CRADLE MOUNTAIN REGION
This morning we enjoy the intriguing history of Strahan with options to suit everyone! Take a stroll or a bike ride (free) along the foreshore or up the Water Tower Hill for a priceless view over Macquarie Harbour and Ocean Beach; walk through a rainforest to Hogarth Falls (if you’re quiet and lucky you may even spot a platypus. Another option is to join a catamaran or speed boat cruise of the central highlands and the notorious Hells Gates or a 4WD beach tour (all optional activities at own expense). Later, we take a walk through the Henty Sand Dunes, where you can even take a quad bike tour (optional) and then we visit the ‘Silver City’ of Zeehan. In the late afternoon, there’s an opportunity to try your hand at canoeing (free) in a lake nearby our overnight accommodation. (BLD)


DAY 3 :: CRADLE MOUNTAIN TO DEVONPORT
Today we discover the World Heritage Cradle Mountain National Park. Enjoy the pure air with a guided walk around lovely Dove Lake, or challenge yourself with a more strenuous hike (unguided) to view Cradle Mountain. We spend this afternoon exploring more of the state’s mid north before our arrival in Devonport. (BL)
DAY 4 :: DEVONPORT TO HOBART
It’s only a short distance through farming country to Launceston where a transfer is required for the journey to Hobart. The Midland Highway is Tasmania's historic trunk route, dotted with colonial wayside inns and rustic villages such as Campbelltown, Oatlands and Bagdad. We make a stop in the Ross, where you’ll see Australia’s oldest convict built bridge and have the opportunity to purchase pastries (own expense). We’ll also see the infamous Ross Bakery which is legendary in Japan and those in the ‘know’ will be in search of Kiki the witch! Joining the Derwent Valley at Bridgewater, we'll return to Hobart mid-afternoon.
