5 Day Tasmania Tour - Under Down Under

It is easy to see why this is a famous road trip. You will escape into Tasmania’s wilderness as we travel coast to coast to explore and experience our most popular journey. The tour starts by heading to the wild and rugged west coast for waterfalls, rainforest, mountains and wildlife. Then experience the startling change of scenery as we journey through the alpine wilderness of Cradle Mountain to the white sands of the Bay of Fires and Wineglass Bay.

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

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  

Around 950m above sea level is the World Heritage-listed Cradle Mountain-Lake St Clair National Park, where you can 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’ and then to Launceston.

Overnight: Launceston

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 and seasonal).

Overnight: Bicheno 

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.
