Overview

Travel across Tasmania one way from Launceston to Hobart via Freycinet National Park and the famously beautiful Wineglass Bay. Have time for walking and sightseeing in the national park, then make stops for seafood, wine, and other treats at Freycinet Marine Farm and the Devils Corner Winery before evening drop-off in Hobart.
  • Explore Freycinet National Park (4+ hours)
  • Walk to the spectacular Wineglass Bay Lookout (moderate uphill walk 45 mins)
  • Choose the option to extend your walk to the white sands of Wineglass Bay (longer walking option 2.5 hours)
  • Visit the highlights of Freycinet National Park - Honeymoon Bay & Sleepy Bay
  • Take in the spectacular 360 degree views on the Cape Tourville Lighthouse Walk (easy 20 mins)
  • Enjoy some fresh oysters at Freycinet Marine Farm
  • Visit the historic Ross Village, home to the famous Ross Bakery with scallop pies, possibly Tasmania’s best Vanilla Slice & the not to be missed “Kiki’s Kitchen”
  • Reward yourself with a tasty ice-cream at Kate’s Berry Farm – delicious!
  • Check out the unusual convict built Spiky Bridge
After meeting your guide at your hotel in Launceston, travel in a climate-controlled van through the picturesque town of Ross, which has old-world charm, convict history, and a famous local bakery.

From Ross, head into the Freycinet National Park on the east coast, making a brief stop at Freycinet Marine Farm, which cultivates oysters in the nearby ocean waters.

Next up, walk with your guide to the Wineglass Bay Lookout where you can get great photo ops of the gorgeous landscape. The walk is an easy uphill route that takes about 1.5 hours round-trip. Afterward, you have the option to continue to Wineglass beach (2.5-hour round-trip walking time) where you can eat lunch, swim, and relax. If you prefer a shorter walk, the guide can take you sightseeing to park highlights like Honeymoon Bay, Cape Tourville Lighthouse, and Sleepy Bay.

After about four hours in the national park, continue your journey to Hobart, stopping at Kate's Berry Farm in the seaside township of Swansea. There you can purchase ice cream, jams, sauces, and chocolates (own expense).

Your tour ends with drop-off at your centrally located hotel in Hobart around 6:30pm.

That was great experience for this trip. both guides are knowledgeable and informative. they explained us about some background and stories during the trip sites and that made us very impression. they were also friendly and helpful during the trip. Best way from Launceston to Hobart and highly recommended this trip to my friends.

Best way to travel from Launceston to Hobart. I strongly recommend it. You get 2 Tour Guides - Graeme from Launceston to Freycinet was cold, perfunctory and jaded. Clinton from Freycinet to Hobart was warm and knowledgeable about Tassie history which he imparted with passion.

If you're looking to get from one end of Tasmania to the other, this is a great trip. With a stop at Freycinet National Park, to hike and go to the beach, traveling between cities feels fun and more like an excursion. The guides are friendly and knowledgeable and clearly really care about Tasmania.
