Itinerary & Booking Info

Travel Style

Independent city stay



Day 1 – Arrive Hobart
Arrive in Hobart and make your own way to your hotel, where you’ll be staying for four nights.

Days 2-4 Hobart
Your time is free to explore this great, historic city of Hobart.

Day 5 – Tour from Hobart to Launceston
An action-packed tour day travelling from Hobart to finish in Launceston via the world-famous Wineglass Bay and Tasmania’s stunning East Coast.
We depart Hobart heading east then following the coastline north. We travel through the seaside towns of Orford and Swansea as we make our way to Freycinet National Park. Freycinet is one of Tasmania’s first National Parks, famous for its rich and stunning coastal landscapes. Pink Granite Mountains form the backdrop for secluded bays, pristine waters, white sandy beaches, local wildlife and amazing walking trails.
As we enter the Freycinet area we have a brief stop at the Freycinet Marine Farm for anyone interested in the local oysters fresh from the surrounding pristine waters.
We walk as a group to the Wineglass Bay Lookout, this is a moderate uphill walk of around 45 minutes. Once at the top you are rewarded with that world – famous view of Wineglass Bay and the stunning Freycinet National Park. Enjoy the moment, take in the views and let our guides help you with those sought-after photographs. The walk to Wineglass Bay Lookout is one of the Great Short Walks of Tasmania and requires good mobility and adequate fitness. It is 1.3 km uphill, before returning downhill.
For the keen walkers, you can continue the walk down to Wineglass beach (2.5 hr return walking time). You have time on this famous beach to take a swim, relax, eat your lunch or meander along the white sands.
If you prefer to select the shorter walking option, then you can explore other areas of Freycinet with our tour guide. Visit Honeymoon Bay, Sleepy Bay, Cape Tourville Lighthouse & great short walk.
We re-group ready for the onward journey to Launceston. While still on the East Coast we make a final stop for the day, where you can refresh and refuel in a friendly and relaxed location. Try the local hand-crafted Ice creams or perhaps a famous Tasmanian Scallop Pie! Then it is onwards into Launceston arriving around 6.00 – 6.30pm.

We anticipate you will travel with 1 suitcase/travel pack per person, and your day pack for the day. If you have excess luggage please let our team know prior to travelling.

Days 6-7
Explore Launceston and surrounding areas at your leisure.

Day 8 – Depart Launceston
