Overview

5 action-packed days to see Tasmania’s West and East Coasts as we loop the island and visit the famous places of interest.

It’s easy to see why this is our most popular tour! You will escape into Tasmania's wilderness as we travel coast to coast, and explore and experience the best of the island. The tour starts by heading to the wild and rugged West Coast for waterfalls, rainforest and wildlife. Then experience the startling change of scenery as the tour goes on through the alpine wilderness of Cradle Mountain to the white sands of the Bay of Fires. Full of famous attractions, fun and adventure this tour will show you the best of Tasmania.

Day 1: HOBART > STRAHAN

We leave Hobart and drive through the Derwent Valley – travelling east to west across the island.

You’ll see the beautiful Russell Falls, walk among the Mt Field National Park Tall Trees, and visit

Australia’s deepest freshwater lake, Lake St Clair. Explore the pristine Franklin-Gordon Wild River

National Park and end the day in Strahan.

Overnight: Strahan

Day 2: WILD WEST COAST

In the untouched wilderness of Tasmania’s West Coast we will explore the shifting sands of Henty

Dunes. Then we continue into the Tarkine Rainforest and walk to Tasmania’s highest waterfall –

Montezuma Falls. Or you can choose to join the world famous Gordon River Cruise (optional, at your

own expense).

Overnight: Strahan (Breakfast)

Day 3: CRADLE MOUNTAIN > LAUNCESTON

Around 950m above sea level is the World Heritage listed Cradle Mountain-Lake St Claire National

Park, where you choose a walk to suit you. With an extensive range of tracks, stroll around Dove

Lake or challenge yourself with a hike to Marion’s Lookout. A short drive takes us through Sheffield,

the ‘town of murals’, to Launceston.

Overnight: Launceston (Breakfast)

Day 4: 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).

Overnight: Bicheno (Breakfast)

Day 5: 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.

I seldom go for organized tour and this has far exceeded my expectation. Very action packed 5 days and yet not rushed among stops. Enjoyed the bushwalk and hiking and (definitely need proper hiking shoes) and got into the cold water. And Rachel our guide has made this tour a blast to have. She went extra miles for everyone to be engaged and taken care of, and making the tour festive/family like over the Christmas time. Thank you Rachel.

This van trip around Tasmania was excellent primarily due to the expert and professional nature of our guide Phil with Down Under Tours operator. His knowledge of Tasmanian/Australian flora, fauna, history, geology, economics and sociopolitical topics brought a fantastic perspective to the tour of this beautiful island. Phil was also a skilled, safe and conscientious driver which made the tour even more enjoyable. The mix of folks on the tour, while random, was a great cross section of ages and world origins which was an extra bonus.

The tour was very well organized. The various sights were amazing and there were enough breaks so that the long stretches of driving were easy to do. The driver/guide was very knowledgeable and accommodating.
