Your 3-day tour of western Tasmania starts as you depart Hobart for the drive through Mt Field National Park, followed by another scenic drive to reach Lake St Clair in Cradle Mountain-Lake St Clair National Park before ending the day in Strahan, where overnight accommodation is included for two nights at a private lodge used exclusively by participants on this tour.

Once a bed and breakfast, the lodge now provides either shared dormitory rooms (four beds per room) or hotel-style rooms (one single and one double bed per room); make your selection when booking. Some meals are included.

Over the next two days, continue your exploration of this wilderness region with bushwalks, hikes and wildlife-spotting. To enhance your experience with some outdoor adventure, you have the flexibility to choose your own optional activities, from jet boating to a Gordon River cruise to quad biking on the Henty sand dunes. Your tour concludes when you reach Launceston. See the Itinerary for details on each day.

Itinerary

Day 1: Hobart – Strahan (L)
After an early morning departure from Hobart, take a scenic drive through the farming country northwest of the city 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.

Day 2: Strahan (B,L)
Spend this free day in Strahan how you choose, and book any optional activities you want to do on the day. Perhaps book 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.

You also have the option to explore off the beaten track into the Tarkine wilds, where ancient forests meet ancient mountains. Your guide will show you the thousand-year-old Huon pines growing alongside the Pieman River and take you on a series of easy to moderate walks exploring the area before returning to Strahan.

Day 3: Strahan – Launceston (B, L)
After breakfast, take a 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, stopping along the way in Sheffield, the 'Town of Murals,' where you will enjoy a cheese tasting at the Ashgrove Cheese Factory.
