Description

Day 1 – Hobart to Strahan

Today our wilderness journey begins as we traverse Tasmania island, from east to west. Escaping Hobart through the Derwent Valley, we walk in the land of the giants and admire the majesty of Russell Falls and Mt Field National Park. Visit Lake St Clair, Australia’s deepest freshwater lake and enter the temperate time capsule that is the Franklin – Gordon Wild Rivers National Park. We end the day in Strahan, beside the picturesque Macquarie Harbour. Our West Coast hosts welcome us with a BBQ dinner. (D)

Day 2 – Wild West Coast

Discover the Wild West coast today with a visit to Ocean Beach and the Henty Sand Dunes. Search for elusive whale bones amongst the shifting sands or simply breathe in the freshest air in the world. Stroll by the foreshore of the harbour or walk amongst the rainforest to a waterfall. There is also the option today of a cruise on the famous Gordon River; take a scenic sea plane flight over the Gordon and Franklin River system complete with a river landing and walk; journey up the King River on a jet boat; peacefully paddle a kayak or catch a salmon in the harbour. (Strahan optional activities at own expense). (B)

Day 3 – Cradle Mountain to Launceston

After a restful nights’ sleep we journey 950 metres above sea level to the Cradle Valley, our gateway to the World Heritage Area of Cradle Mountain National Park. We share some local knowledge and interpretation of the landscape to help you choose a walk that will enhance your experience. With an extensive range of tracks, you will be able to take it easy with a stroll around Dove Lake and one of the many board-walk tracks or perhaps challenge yourself with a hike to Marion’s Lookout.  After enjoying the beauty of Cradle Mountain National Park we take [mappress mapid=”66″]short drive to Sheffield, known as “the town of murals”, before continuing on to Launceston, Australia’s third oldest city, to end our adventure through the wilderness of Tasmania.
