What You Can Expect

3-Day Tasmania West Coast Tour from Hobart: Strahan, Cradle Mountain, Launceston

Russell Falls

With three days to explore Tasmania’s west coast, you’ll follow country back roads to visit Cradle Mountain-Lake St Clair National Park and stay overnight in the west coast fishing port of Strahan. Upgrade to include a wilderness cruise on the Gordon River, quad biking on the Henty sand dunes, a trip on the ABT Railway or jet boating from Strahan. Your accommodation is a private lodge used exclusively by guests on this tour. Formerly a luxury B&B, the lodge offers either shared dorm accommodation (four beds per room) or hotel rooms (one single and one double bed per room); some meals are included.

Day 1: Hobart -- Strahan (L, D)

After an early morning departure from Hobart, take a scenic drive through the farming country northwest of Hobart to reach Mount Field National Park. Here, take a guided nature walk through the park’s famous tall trees, known as swamp gums, and visit beautiful Russell Falls. The next drive is one of Australia’s most scenic, taking you to Australia’s deepest lake, Lake St Clair, in Cradle Mountain-Lake St Clair National Park. After time to explore this wilderness region, another scenic drive brings you to your private lodge accommodation in the west coast village of Strahan.

Accommodation: Private lodge in Strahan - Braeside Bed and Breakfast

Day 2: Strahan (no meals included)
Spend your free day in Strahan how you choose, and book any optional activities you want to do on the day. You can upgrade to include a quad-biking adventure on the Henty sand dunes, with views over the wild west coast, or go jet boating in the rainforest-covered mountains on the King River. Take a relaxed cruise on the Gordon River, go sea kayaking or relax in the tiny village of Strahan.

Accommodation: Private lodge in Strahan - Braeside Bed and Breakfast

Day 3: Strahan -- Launceston (B, L)
After breakfast, take a scenic drive to Cradle Mountain, one of Australia’s most popular bushwalking destinations. Go on a guided hike through this rugged landscape, or follow an easier trail to Dove Lake. You’ll see birds and wildlife on your walk, and perhaps even spot an elusive wombat. In the afternoon, drive to the mid-north coast town of Launceston, where the tour ends with a convivial group farewell dinner (not included).

Customer Reviews

4 star rating: Recommended December 2014

Steve, the tour leader, couldn't do enough to help and showed an amazing depth of knowledge of the areas visited. Although the hostel at Strahan is rather basic it was comfortable enough for 2 nights. Our fellow travellers were a great bunch and the mix of age groups was a bonus. Some concern that the elderly mini bus would actually make the distance and would have felt more comfortable with seat belts, which I thought would have been mandatory by now.

Wonderful guide -- Steve was knowledgeable, helpful, hard working.
The accomodations and meals were a bit sparse. Would have much preferred a genuine hotel.
