ITINERARY

Day 1 . (Lunch)
Today we explore Tassiefs spectacular East coast. Stopping regularly to take in the views of the crystal clear water and the famous lichen covered rocks. First stop is the seaside village of Bicheno famous for its penguin residents! We drop into Bichenofs Blowhole to see this show of nature's power. We then push onto what is the Tasmanian highlight for many guests as we explore the Freycinet (pronounced fray-se-nay) National Park. We have plenty of time to take in the fantastic walk up to the lookout point over this stunning peninsula, and then down onto beautiful Wineglass Bay with its long white sandy beach and crystal clear seas. We dedicate the day to seeing all that the National Park has to offer including the elevated Cape Tourville boardwalk with its picturesque lighthouse. The walk is the perfect vantage point to spot whales on their migration, so keep your eyes on the horizon. This afternoonfs drive to Port Arthur is one of the most scenic routes in Tasmania it is also a region famed for its food and wine. We take the opportunity to break the journey at a number of the highlights including Katefs Berry Farm, an institution amongst Tasmanians. When you taste her ice cream you will know why, a well deserved treat. For those with more savoury taste; we will pick up some of the freshest oysters that you will find in the world. After dinner those of you brave enough will have the option to do a bone-chilling ghost tour, witnessing the darker side of the Port Arthur Historic Site. You may want to sleep with the light onc.

Day 2 . (Breakfast/Lunch)
Another action packed day awaits us this morning! We check out some of the local amazing rock formations with a morning visit to Remarkable Cave and Maingnon Lookout. Then we immerse ourselves into the harsh and cruel world of the local convicts of the 1800fs as we enter Port Arthur, Australiafs best known penal colony! We join the complimentary guided walking tour and boat cruise around the Isle of the dead where we learn about the harsh and cruel conditions of life in captivity and the amazing rehabilitation techniques used to attempt to reform the criminals of the day. You have ample time to explore through the morning amongst the 35 buildings contained in this World Heritage Site. From Port Arthur our next stop is at the Tasmanian Devil Unzoo, a well established conservation park. Walk amongst the quolls and hand feed the wallabies (pademelons) in this unique and natural surrounding. The highlight of the visit though is undoubtedly the snarling action of the Tasmanian Devil Feeding as you learn about the research going on to save this iconic animal from the plight of an aggressive face cancer. The Tasman Peninsula is home to Australiafs highest sea cliffs and an abundance of amazing coastal scenery. We check out some of the finest at Tasman Arch & Devilfs Kitchen as we enjoy a short coastal cliff top walk. Drive through quirky Doo-Town as we depart the region and begin our return to Hobart.

We visit a vineyard for a tasting of the local drop before concluding our day in the harbour city of Hobart.

Today we head into Southern Tasmania for a relaxed and diverse day. Walk through the treetops in the morning, suspended 40m above the ground, then spend the afternoon 40m underground exploring vast chambers during a cave tour. The Tahune Airwalk has a Cantilever that stretches for 597 m through the treetops. Enjoy the sensation of being suspended above the Huon River with breathtaking views across the treetops and surrounding mountains. We have time to explore and enjoy more walking here as we continue onto the Swinging Bridges. With a 50m span across the river this is another thrilling experience and makes for fabulous photos! We continue our day, further south to the Hastings Caves National Park. Bring your swim gear and jump into the Thermal Springs pool where the water is always 28 degrees. Relax in the beautiful forest surrounds or wander the Hot Springs Nature Trail where the warm water meets the cool water. Hastings Caves reserve is home to Newdegate Cave. We head underground with an expert National Park guide, into Australias largest tourist cave. The richly decorated chambers make this the must see caving system to visit in Tasmania.

Day 4 - (Breakfast)
Today is set aside to explore the beautiful capital city of Hobart, home to the southern fishing fleet, Antarctic ice breakers and a fascinating colonial history. Starting the day with a city sights tour will help you get your bearings, hear the stories of the whalers, entrepreneurs and convicts that shaped this remote British outpost in the early 1800fs. You will come to appreciate the city's unique place in history and its connection to the Derwent River and Southern Ocean that are on its doorstep. Hobart is dominated by the towering Mt Wellington and our next stop is its summit. At 1,269 meters above sea level it affords a bird's eye view of the city and much of southern Tasmania. The sub alpine environment at the summit is home to an array of wildlife and hardy mountain plants. Your guide will share stories of eThe Mountainf (as the locals call it) its history, geology and its importance to the aboriginal people of the area who know the mountain as eKunanyif. The summit is famed for wild icy winds straight from Antarctica, swirling mist and snow in any season, so pack your jumper and hold onto your hat, guaranteed the view is worth the chill. We wind down the day with a visit to the oldest brewery in Australia, Cascade. The brewery is set amongst ornamental gardens with a backdrop of Mt Wellington and its fascinating story is one of convictfs made good, bush-fires and Tasmanian Tigers. They have been making one of Australia's best beers since 1832, so they must be doing something right! We tour the working factory and learn the secrets of the brewers (they call it call 'The Feelf) and then taste their brews to decide for ourselves. Cascade also make a range of juices, soft drinks and cordials so there is something for everyone.
