UNDER DOWN UNDER: Tassie escape
Join us on a great 2 day tour of Tasmania's beautiful East Coast. Departing either Hobart or Launceston this tour includes highlights such as Bay of Fires, Bicheno, Wineglass Bay, Freycinet National Park and Bonorong Wildlife Sanctuary.
HOBART TO BICHENO (OR) LAUNCESTON TO BICHENO. Our journey begins this morning as we make tracks to the East Coast and the beautiful Bay of Fires. Here we can stretch our legs with some quality time to enjoy this highly recommended coastal region (a Lonely Planet favourite). The beaches are gleaming and the water inviting. Perhaps a swim? (Conditions permitting). Enjoy Tasmania’s most scenic coastal drive from St Helen’s to Bicheno. This evening you can join a guided viewing of the Little Penguins (optional in season) as they return to their rookeries on the edges of this seaside village. Overnight: Bicheno
FREYCINET NATIONAL PARK TO HOBART. An early start means we are the first to the lookout, beating the crowds and the heat for that postcard photo of Wineglass Bay. Relax on the secluded beach or choose the more challenging Mt Amos or Hazards Beach walk for your morning's Freycinet experience. This afternoon we take a break at a picturesque village and check out a local convict built bridge. Come face to face with the iconic Tassie Devil as we make a stop at Bonorong Wildlife Sanctuary to meet these now endangered native animals, as well as some others unique to Tasmania. A short drive returns us to Hobart. Overnight: Hobart (Breakfast)
Departs: Hobart or Launceston at 7.00am
