Day 1: HOBART OR LAUNCESTON > BICHENO
We make our way to the East Coast and the beautiful Bay of Fires. If the conditions are right, this is the perfect place for a swim. Tasmania’s most scenic coastal drive takes you from St Helens to Bicheno, where we visit a wildlife sanctuary to meet the iconic Tasmanian devil. Tonight, you may want to join an evening viewing of the Little Penguins (optional at your own expense and seasonal).
Day 2: FREYCINET NATIONAL PARK > HOBART
An early start means we are the first to the Wineglass Bay lookout, beating the crowds and the heat for that postcard photo. Relax on the secluded beach or choose the more challenging Mt Amos or Hazards Beach walk. We continue further along the scenic east coast via the seaside towns of Swansea and Orford as we make our way to Hobart.
Overnight: Hobart (Breakfast)
Day 3: MONA & THE MOUNTAIN
Heading 1272m above sea level, we arrive at the summit of kunanyi/Mt Wellington to enjoy stunning views over Hobart and southern Tasmania. From there, it’s the Organ Pipes track for the adventurous or a more relaxed morning with guided sightseeing of the mountain. There’s time for lunch around Hobart’s waterfront before heading to the unique Mona museum, now Tasmania’s most visited attraction.
Day 4: BRUNY ISLAND
Located at the mouth of the Derwent River, Bruny Island is the home to unique wildlife (including the white Bennett’s wallabies), dramatic scenery and delicious local produce. After a short ferry ride across the D’Entrecasteaux Channel, we head to the spectacular seascape of Cape Bruny and the Bruny Island Lighthouse. We can enjoy some coastal walking and breathtaking beaches as we explore this stunning island. We end the day with local produce tastings of cheese and oysters.
