Itinerary:
Day 1: Hobart – Strahan (L)
After an early morning departure from Hobart, take a scenic drive through the farming country northwest of the city to reach Mount Field National Park. Here, take a guided nature walk through the park’s famous tall trees, known as swamp gums, and visit beautiful Russell Falls. The next drive is one of Australia’s most scenic, taking you to Australia’s deepest lake, Lake St Clair, in Cradle Mountain-Lake St Clair National Park. After time to explore this wilderness region, another scenic drive brings you to your private lodge accommodation in the west coast village of Strahan.

Accommodation: Private lodge in Strahan—Braeside Bed and Breakfast

Day 2: Strahan (B,L)
Spend this free day in Strahan how you choose, and book any optional activities you want to do on the day. Perhaps book a quad-biking adventure on the Henty sand dunes, with views over the wild west coast, or go jet boating in the rainforest-covered mountains on the King River. Take a relaxed cruise on the Gordon River, go sea kayaking or relax in the tiny village of Strahan.

You also have the option to explore off the beaten track into the Tarkine wilds, where ancient forests meet ancient mountains. Your guide will show you the thousand-year-old Huon pines growing alongside the Pieman River and take you on a series of easy to moderate walks exploring the area before returning to Strahan.

Day 3: Strahan – Launceston (B, L)
After breakfast, take a drive to Cradle Mountain, one of Australia’s most popular bushwalking destinations. Go on a guided hike through this rugged landscape, or follow an easier trail to Dove Lake. You’ll see birds and wildlife on your walk, and perhaps even spot an elusive wombat. In the afternoon, drive to the mid-north coast town of Launceston, stopping along the way in Sheffield, the 'Town of Murals,' where you will enjoy a cheese tasting at the Ashgrove Cheese Factory.

Traveler Reviews

Steve, the tour leader, couldn't do enough to help and showed an amazing depth of knowledge of the areas visited. Although the hostel at Strahan is rather basic it was comfortable enough for 2 nights. Our fellow travellers were a great bunch and the mix of age groups was a bonus. Some concern that the elderly mini bus would actually make the distance and would have felt more comfortable with seat belts, which I thought would have been mandatory by now.

Wonderful guide -- Steve was knowledgeable, helpful, hard working.
The accomodations and meals were a bit sparse. Would have much preferred a genuine hotel.
