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
Discover the Wild West coast today with a visit to Ocean Beach and the Henty Sand Dunes. Search for elusive whale bones amongst the shifting sands or simply breathe in the freshest air in the world.
Stroll by the foreshore of the harbour or walk amongst the rainforest to a waterfall. There is also the option today of a cruise on the famous Gordon River, take a scenic sea plane flight over the Gordon and Franklin River system complete with a river landing and walk, journey up the King River on a jet boat, peacefully paddle a kayak of your own or catch a salmon in the harbour. (Strahan optional activities at own expense). Tonight we enjoy a performance of Tasmania’s longest running play – “The Ship that never was”. 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 to Sheffield, “the town of murals”, before continuing on to Launceston, Australia’s third oldest city.
