DAY 1: HOBART TO STRAHAN
Our journey begins as we traverse the island from east to west. Escaping Hobart through the Derwent Valley, we walk in the land of the giants and admire the beauty of Russell Falls and Mt Field National Park. Visit Lake St Clair, Australia’s deepest freshwater lake. Enter the temperate time capsule that is the Franklin- Gordon Wild Rivers National Park. End the day in Strahan beside Macquarie Harbour. Overnight: Strahan

DAY 2: WILD WEST COAST

Join your guide as we venture into the untouched wilderness of Tasmania’s West Coast. Travelling along the coast from the seaside town of Strahan, we explore the shifting sands of Henty Dunes before continuing into the Tarkine Rainforest and walking to Tasmania’s highest waterfall – Montezuma Falls. Alternatively, there is also the option today of joining the world famous cruise on the Gordon River. This scenic cruise provides a great way to explore the rich history and scenic beauty of Macquarie Harbour and the Gordon River (optional cruise at own expense). Overnight: Strahan  (Breakfast )  

DAY 3: CRADLE MOUNTAIN TO LAUNCESTON
We journey to 950m above sea level to the 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. A short drive to Sheffield, “the town of murals”, before continuing on to Launceston, Australia’s third oldest city. Overnight: Launceston  (Breakfast)  

DAY 4: LAUNCESTON TO BICHENO
A morning walk at Cataract Gorge in the heart of Launceston before making our way to the East Coast and the beautiful Bay of Fires. Here we can stretch our legs with some quality time to enjoy this highly recommended coastal region (Lonely Planet’s must see for 2009). The beaches are gleaming and the water inviting. Enjoy Tasmania’s most scenic coastal drive from St Helen’s to Bicheno. This evening you can join a guided viewing of the Little Penguins (optional in season)as they return to their rookeries on the edges of this seaside village.Overnight: Bicheno  (Breakfast)

DAY 5: FREYCINET NATIONAL PARK TO HOBART
An early start means we are the first to the lookout, beating the crowds and the heat for that postcard photo of Wineglass Bay. Relax on the secluded beach or choose the more challenging Mt Amos or Hazards Beach walk. This afternoon, we take a break at a picturesque village and check out a local convict-built bridge. Come face-to-face with the iconic Tassie Devil as we make a stop at Bonorong Wildlife Sanctuary to meet these endangered native animals, as well as some other unique to Tasmania. A short drive returns us to Hobart. (Breakfast)
