Day 1


Departing Hobart/nipaluna, we quickly begin to venture into the rugged Western Wilds. Our first stop in the rainforests of the Tasmanian Wilderness World Heritage Area is to see the beautiful Russell Falls in Mount Field National Park. As we continue west and climb into the alpine region, we’ll stop at Australia’s deepest freshwater lake, Lake St Clair.  Scenes of mountains and buttongrass plains abound as we travel through the Franklin-Gordon Wild Rivers National Park and stop to see the tannin-coloured waters of the Franklin River and take a short walk into the lovely Nelson Falls. As we near the historic mining town, Queenstown, take in the impressive views of the Iron Blow Lookout, Horsetail Falls and Mt Lyell.  We’ll enjoy a group dinner and settle in for the night.

Departing from the harbourside village of Strahan, today we’ll cruise the Gordon River. This fantastic river cruise includes a guided boardwalk through the UNESCO World Heritage rainforest as well as a guided tour of the harshest penal settlement in Australia at Sarah Island. You’ll cruise through the treacherous Hells Gates which is a narrow passageway into Macquarie Harbour and enjoy lunch aboard the ship featuring Tasmanian produce. See the workings of a huon pine sawmill to further appreciate the history of this picturesque town, before departing for an incredibly scenic drive through to Tullah. On a clear day, this tiny township offers magnificent views of the rugged peaks of Mount Murchison.

Travelling north we’ll stop at Waratah to see the lovely cascading falls then continue through Hellyer’s Gorge to the North West Coast of Tasmania.  At Stanley you can take in the views of The Nut, the volcanic plug that sits proudly out to sea and provides sweeping views of the coast.  We’ll make our way to the far North West Coast as far as ‘The Edge of the World’ at Arthur River. This region forms part of the wild Tarkine/takayna coast and to Tasmanian aboriginal people/palawa it is a deeply spiritual place.  We’ll enjoy dinner together this evening at the comfortable lodgings at Tall Timbers.

We’ll check out several locations such as Sumac Lookout which offers breathtaking forest views across the Arthur River, and Trowutta Arch which is a geological wonder. Returning to the North West Coast, we’ll explore several seaside stops along the way, including a visit to the idyllic Boat Harbour, Table Cape, and the town of Penguin, before arriving at our accommodation in Devonport.
