Launceston – Stanley - Smithton
Tall Timbers Hotel

Depart for the majestic north west, travelling through Ulverstone and Burnie before arriving at Stanley, home to “The Nut”. If weather permits, we’ll take the chairlift to the top of the Nut for stunning views over Bass Strait. Also enjoy a visit to Highfield House, the original headquarters of the Van Diemen’s Land Company, a royal charter company formed in 1824 during the reign of King George IV. This afternoon we arrive in Smithton where we spend the night at Tall Timbers Hotel. (B, L, D)

Woolnorth - Cradle Mountain
Cradle Mountain Lodge

Smithton is home to the historic Woolnorth Station, which is still owned by the Van Diemen’s Land Company. This morning we enjoy a tour of Woolnorth, including the Roaring 40’s Wind Farm and rugged Cape Grim. We then journey south to the World Heritage Listed Cradle Mountain-Lake St Clair National Park, where we spend the next two nights at Peppers Cradle Mountain Lodge. (B, L, D)

Cradle Mountain Exploring
Cradle Mountain Lodge
Expand
 

Today we begin with the ‘Enchanted Walk’, an easy 45-minute stroll amongst the area’s unique alpine flora and fauna. Afterwards we then visit Waldheim Chalet, a replica of the original built by Gustav and Kate Weindorfer in 1912. The original chalet was still used as a guest lodge up until 1974, at which point it was deemed structurally unsound. The replica was built in 1976 using the same local materials.

Later on we make our way up to the stunning glacial-formed Dove Lake. Enjoy dramatic views of Cradle Mountain in the distance, the rugged jewel in the crown of this World Heritage Listed area. For the energetic, a 5.7 kilometre walk will take you around the lake and beneath the towering spires of Cradle Mountain. The track is a boardwalk for much of the way and is regarded as one of Tasmania’s premier walks. Your guides will accompany you for the trek, which also passes through a magnificent cool temperate rainforest known as the Ballroom forest. If you don’t feel up to taking part in the walk, you’ll be transferred back down to the Lodge where you can relax or enjoy the various short walks nearby.

This afternoon we’ll sample some of Tasmania’s fine wines and cheeses at the Lodge. After dinner there is an optional wildlife spotting tour available. (B, L, D)

Cradle Mountain - Strahan
Strahan Village Motel
Expand
 

After breakfast we depart Cradle Mountain-Lake St Clair National Park and head south. Visit Queenstown and learn about the area’s mining history with a local guide before continuing to Strahan. We spend the next two nights at the Strahan Village Motel, set on a hilltop with commanding views over Macquarie Harbour. (B, L, D)

6
Gordon River Cruise
Strahan Village Motel
Expand
 

This morning we board the ‘Spirit of the Wild’ for a cruise up the Gordon River and into the Tasmanian Wilderness World Heritage Area. We’ll be seated on the Premier Upper Deck and enjoy two guided shore excursions, including Heritage Landing (home to ancient Huon pines over 2,000 years old) and Sarah Island, once a dreaded penal colony. We also head out to Hells Gates where the harbour meets the ocean.

After returning to Strahan mid-afternoon, the rest of the day can be spent at your leisure. Wander through the village and perhaps call in to the Huon Pine Sawmill for a demonstration. (B, L, D)

Lake St Clair - Russell Falls - Hobart
Hotel Grand Chancellor
Expand
 

Departing Strahan early this morning we head through the scenic Franklin-Gordon Wild Rivers National Park to Lake St Clair, carved by glaciers during the last Ice Age. Then, discover the ‘Wall in the Wilderness’ at Derwent Bridge, an exquisite work in progress by artist Greg Duncan.

The carved panels tell the history of the Central Highlands region, and is truly one of Tasmania’s best attractions! This afternoon we’ll visit Russell Falls before arriving in Hobart late afternoon. We spend the next 3 nights at the Hotel Grand Chancellor, located on the waterfront overlooking Constitution Dock. Enjoy premium harbour view rooms. (B, L, D)

Hobart – Geeveston - Tahune Air Walk
Hotel Grand Chancellor
Expand
 

Our destination today is the Huon Valley and pristine Southern Forests. Here we visit the highly acclaimed Tahune Air Walk, one of the region’s top attractions and an absolute must-see on any trip to Tasmania. The walk through the treetops gives spectacular views of the untouched wilderness, and culminates in a cantilever set high over the confluence of the mighty Huon and Picton Rivers. We then visit Geeveston before returning to Hobart. Hobart is a delightful city with a colourful and interesting past, and one of the best ways to experience this is to head off on a historical walking tour. Your guide will take you to various places including the Hobart Docks, Salamanca Place and the CBD with fascinating commentary and local insights. This evening we enjoy dinner together at the hotel. (B, L, D)

Spot Albatross and other seabirds that sit at the bottom of Bruny Island’s towering sea cliffs, surrounded by 100’s of seals. Keep an eye out for dolphins surfing on the bow wave
of the boat!
