Three days exploring the west coast of Tasmania featuring lush forests, waterfalls, mountain ranges, lakes and national parks including Cradle Mountain - Lake St Clair, a World Heritage area. Followed by a transfer back to Hobart on the fourth day.
Day 1: Hobart to Strahan
Our journey begins as we traverse the island from east to west. Escaping Hobart through the Derwent Valley, we walk in the land of the giants and admire the beauty of Russell Falls and Mt Field National Park. Visit Lake St Clair, Australia’s deepest freshwater lake. Enter the temperate time capsule that is the Franklin- Gordon Wild Rivers National Park. End the day in Strahan beside Macquarie Harbour. Our West Coast hosts welcome us with a BBQ dinner.
Overnight: Strahan (Dinner)
Day 2: Wild West Coast
Join your guide as we venture into the untouched wilderness of Tasmania’s West Coast. Travelling along the coast from the seaside town of Strahan we explore the shifting sands of Henty Dunes before continuing into the Tarkine Rainforest and enjoying a walk to Tasmania’s highest waterfall – Montezuma Falls. Alternatively, there is also the option today of joining a world famous cruise on the Gordon River. This scenic cruise provides a great way to explore the rich history and scenic beauty of Macquarie Harbour and the Gordon River. (Optional cruise at own expense).
Overnight: Strahan (Breakfast)
Day 3: Cradle Mountain to Launceston
We journey to 950m above sea level to the Cradle Valley, our gateway to the World Heritage Area of Cradle Mountain National Park. We share some local knowledge and interpretation of the landscape to help you choose a walk that will enhance your experience here. With an extensive range of tracks, you will be able to take it easy with a stroll around Dove Lake and one of the many boardwalk tracks or perhaps challenge yourself with a hike to Marion’s Lookout. A short drive takes us to Sheffield, “the town of murals”, before continuing on to Launceston, Australia’s third oldest city.
Day 4: Launceston to Hobart
This morning we join our transfer through the historic Tasmanian Midlands as we make our way south to Hobart and the end of our journey.
