3 Day Tassie Wild West Coast Tour (Hobart to Launceston)
Immerse yourself deep in the wilderness! We will journey back through time to explore our heritage, walk through untouched forests, explore wild rivers and rugged coastlines, see breathtaking mountainous vistas and breath the freshest air in the world. This is an amazing opportunity to see part of the world that is nearly untouched by civilisation.
Escape into the land that time forgot as we head off on a 3-day adventure on Tasmania’s wild West Coast.
DAY 1: HOBART TO STRAHAN
We leave Hobart and drive through the Derwent Valley – travelling east to west across the island. You’ll see the beautiful Russell Falls, walk among the Mt Field National Park Tall Trees, and visit Australia’s deepest freshwater lake, Lake St Clair. Explore the pristine Franklin-Gordon Wild River National Park and end the day in Strahan.
DAY 2: WILD WEST COAST
In the untouched wilderness of Tasmania’s West Coast we will explore the shifting sands of Henty Dunes. Then we continue into the Tarkine Rainforest and walk to Tasmania’s highest waterfall – Montezuma Falls. Or you can choose to join the world famous Gordon River Cruise (optional, at your own expense).
Overnight: Strahan (Breakfast)
DAY 3: CRADLE MOUNTAIN TO LAUNCESTON
Around 950m above sea level is the World Heritage listed Cradle Mountain-Lake St Claire National Park, where you choose a walk to suit you.
