Tasmanian Circle - 9 Days Hobart to Hobart Self Drive

Duration
9 Days
Prices From:
US$ 1,061

The tiny island of Tasmania has much to offer. Drive through Strahan then the Cradle Mountains, famous for alpine scenery, to Hobart stopping at Launceston, Swansea and Port Arthur.


See ‘The Natural State’ your way on a Tasmanian self drive tour from Hobart.

Head to Strahan to explore the island’s rugged West Coast. Visit the towns of New Norfolk and Queenstown, or take a trip on Macquarie Bay to visit the infamous convict-era penal colony of Sarah Island. Nearby Cradle Mountain embodies ‘The Natural State’ like nowhere else. With 2 nights here, explore an endless variety of bushwalks and seek out some of Tasmania’s unique wildlife.

Launceston is the largest city in Northern Tasmania and is central to many key attractions including Cataract Gorge. Visit Boag’s brewery or take a Ghost Tour of this historic town.

On your way to the coastal town of Swansea, you’ll have time to go by Freycinet National Park and see Wineglass Bay, voted one of the world’s top 10 beaches. Just to the south, the convict settlement at Port Arthur was used from the 1833 until 1877, and today is the best preserved site of its kind in Australia. See it on your way to cosmopolitan Hobart, the rising cultural centre of the south. Visit the Cadbury Chocolate Factory, or one of the city’s fascinating museums including its latest star, the Museum of Old and New Art.
