It’s quickly coming to the end of the year, which means now is the time to book for one of our fabulous tours to Tasmania in February!
We have two highly complementary tours of Tasmania. Western Tasmania includes the beautiful northern coastline visiting Dove Lake (with Cradle Mountain as its backdrop) before continuing around the west coast and its large expanses of untouched wilderness!
From Strahan we cruise the famous Gordon River with its incredible reflections and fascinating history. We also travel on a very unique train – the West Coast Wilderness Railway – through some of the most gorgeous scenery in Tasmania. That’s really saying something in a state as beautiful as this! The tour
finishes with a little time in Hobart and flies both ways, to and from Tasmania.
The other tour option is to explore from Hobart to Launceston taking the route along the east coast. We start with some time in and around Hobart, including a day to visit the incredible heritage of Port Arthur. On our way to Launceston we explore Richmond, with its delightful streetscape and gorgeous bridge – built by convicts, its Australia’s oldest stone arch bridge.
The east coast of Tasmania is well known for its stunning beauty. For example, Wineglass Bay in Freycinet National Park is world renowned and we explore this beautiful cove on a wonderful cruise. The small towns along the way are delightful: Bicheno, Swansea and St Helens are all gorgeous and charming. We also explore in and around Launceston, before catching the Spirit of Tasmania ferry to travel home.
These tours are also planned so they can be combined into one comprehensive tour of Tasmania, flying into Launceston and travelling home on the Spirit of Tasmania!
Both tours travel in February, but it will be very important to book well before Christmas, otherwise we may not be able to get you a spot on the plane or ferry, or even accommodation!
Please call as soon as possible and we’ll forward the detailed itineraries to you or simply click on the tour below for more information.
