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 meet the iconic Tasmanian devil as we stop at a wildlife sanctuary. This evening
you may choose to join a viewing experience of the Little Penguins (optional at your own expense
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
a beach walk. We continue our journey south passing the coastal villages of Swansea and Orford
before arriving back to Hobart.
Day 3: BRUNY ISLAND
We journey south of Hobart to Kettering and board the vehicular ferry to cross the D’Entrecasteaux
Channel to North Bruny Island. On the island, we stop at “The Neck” home to the Truganini Lookout
and its spectacular 360-degree panoramic views of the Bruny Island coastline. Also, today we visit
South Bruny Island and Adventure Bay, look for some local wildlife (including the white Bennetts
wallabies) and sample some fresh local produce including oysters and cheese.
Day 4: PORT ARTHUR HISTORIC SITE
We start with a visit to Australia’s best-preserved colonial village, Richmond before we head south
to explore Tasmania’s ruthless convict past at the World Heritage listed Port Arthur Historic Site
(guided walk and short harbour cruise included). Rich in visual history, learn of the chilling life as a
convict in the restored sandstone prison buildings and preserved ruins.
