Natural Tasmania 5 Day: Scheduled

Duration
5 Days
Prices From:
US$ 2,092

During this five day tour visit the Cradle Mountains and Freycinet National Park, travel to the Tasman Peninsula and Hobart, always keeping your eyes open for the infamous Tasmanian Devil.


Explore the unique beauty of Tasmania, from the unspoiled wilderness of Cradle Mountain to historic sites such as Port Arthur.

Tasmania’s isolation has resulted in the preservation of some species no longer found on the Australian mainland, as well as the evolution of species endemic to this fascinating island. Depart Launceston for Cradle Mountain National Park, where you’ll be able to see some of Tasmania’s unique wildlife over two days of scenic bushwalks.

A hike in Freycinet National Park will reward you with fantastic views over beautiful Wineglass Bay. You’ll also take a private tour of Port Arthur, which was used as a convict settlement from the 1833 until 1877, and is the best preserved site of its kind in Australia.

Farewell this lush island by sampling some of its famous cuisine before your tour concludes in Hobart.
