Itinerary: day by day

Day 1 – Hobart to Strahan

DEFAULT PICK UP: Montgomery’s YHA, 07:00am

Our journey begins as we cross the island from east to west. Escaping Hobart through the Derwent Valley, we admire the beauty of Russell Falls and Mt Field National Park. Next we visit Lake St Clair; Australia’s deepest freshwater lake. Enter the temperate time capsule that is the Franklin-Gordon Wild Rivers National Park. We end the day in Strahan beside Macquarie Harbour where we stay for two nights. Our West Coast host welcomes us with a BBQ dinner. (D)

Day 2 – Strahan and surrounding area

Discover the Wild West coast today with a visit to Ocean Beach and the Henty Sand Dunes. Search for elusive whale bones amongst the shifting sands or simply breathe in some of the freshest air in the world. There is also the option today of a cruise on the famous Gordon River, a scenic sea plane flight over the Gordon and Franklin River system complete with a river landing and walk, a journey up the King River on a jet boat or a paddle in the harbour. (Strahan optional activities all at own expense, some activities are seasonal and not available all year round). Overnight in Strahan. (B)

Day 3 – Cradle Mountain to Launceston

This morning we journey 950m above sea level to Cradle Valley, our gateway to the World Heritage Area of Cradle Mountain National Park. We share some local knowledge and interpretation of the landscape to help you choose a walk that will enhance your experience here. With an extensive range of tracks, you will be able to take it easy with a stroll around Dove Lake and one of the many boardwalk tracks or perhaps challenge yourself with a hike to Marion’s Lookout. When then take a short drive to Sheffield, ‘the town of murals’, before continuing on to Launceston, Australia’s third oldest city and our overnight stop for the night. (B)

Day 4 – Launceston to Hobart

This morning we join our transfer through the historic Tasmanian Midlands as we make our way south to Hobart and to the end of our journey. (B)
