Tasmania Discovery Tour from Hobart to Russell Falls, Lake St.Clair, Queenstown and Strahan

We depart Hobart by 8am and drive to the unspoilt wilderness of Mount Field National Park. Take an easy and stunning walk through giant green rain forests arriving at Russell Falls, the most photographed waterfall in Tasmania. Our next stop takes us to the Highlands of Tasmania, a hydroelectric power station in Tarraleah. Read the excellent signage and technical details how these 290-meter-long hydro pipes work or simply enjoy the views over the valley.

We continue along the Lyell Highway and visit the incredible “Wall in the Wilderness”. Marvel at Greg Duncan’s masterpiece telling the history of the harsh Central Highlands region. Not far from here we discover Lake St. Clair, the deepest lake of Australia. Visit the park centre and experience the beauty of the Watersmeet Walk. Our final leg takes us to our overnight stay in Queenstown the once richest mining town of the world. (Day 1 Lunch, Dinner, Overnight in Queenstown)


Today take a leisurely walk around Queenstown with its historic buildings, memorials, and museum. Before lunch we step back in time on a heritage steam train journey to Lynchford. Enjoy the premium seating in the Wilderness Class including Tasmanian sparkling wine or juice and Devonshire Tea served onboard. Disembark at Lynchford Station, only accessible by passengers onboard the West Coast Railway, and walk in the footsteps of pioneers and adventurers. Pan for gold or take in the Lynchford Pioneers Room before our return journey with more live commentary and stories of the pioneering folk.

All back on board the bus we travel to the historic township of Strahan and check into our accommodation for the next two nights. Tonight, we see the remarkably successful outdoor theatre production “The Ship That Never Was”. Based on the true story of a great escape from notorious Sarah Island the professional theatre production is live, hilarious, and very entertaining. Back at Strahan Village indulge in a delicious Seafood Buffet Dinner at one of the best restaurants in Strahan. (Day 2 Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner, Overnight in Strahan)


This morning we board the Spirit of the Wild for the Gordon River World Heritage Cruise. Experience the West Coast’s pristine wilderness in luxury with seating on the upper premier deck. We meander through Hells Gate, 2000-year-old rainforests and a 190-year-old convict settlement. Indulge in tasty snacks, a delicious lunch, and endless drinks. After our tranquil cruise stroll the streets of Strahan and soak up the history and sights at your own leisure. With so much local seafood and culinary delights on offer at the View 42◦ Restaurant we savour the flavours at the buffet dinner for a second time. (Day 3 Breakfast on board the Spirit of the Wild, Lunch, Dinner, Overnight in Strahan)

Cradle Mountain, Dove Lake, Tasmanian Devil Sanctuary, Stanley, The Nut and Highfield Historic Site

We depart early and venture to the wild northern end of Cradle Mountain Lake St. Clair National Park. Upon arrival meet the iconic Tasmanian Devil on an exclusive behind -the-scenes tour at the Devils Cradle Sanctuary. Gain a greater understanding of this unique and endangered animal along with other Australian wildlife. After our cafe lunch discover the World Heritage Area breathing in the pure air with a walk to the picturesque boat shed at Dove Lake.

Our next walk departs from Ronny Creek, the start of the Overland Track. This quite easy stretch of the Overland is following a serpentine boardwalk and is one of the best walks to see wombats in the wild. For another magical experience, stroll through button grass moorland along the edges of Pencil Pine Creek on the Enchanted Walk. Finish the day with a fabulous dinner and spend the night at our 4-star Cradle Mountain accommodation. (Day 4 Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner, Overnight at Cradle Mountain Hotel)


No tour of Tasmania is complete without a stay in Stanley, a charming fishing village. We arrive in time for lunch and then take a self-guided tour of the Highfield Historic Site. Highfield offers a wonderful historic experience with its beautiful old buildings, delightful gardens and views of the Nut and Stanley village. Having seen the Nut from the distance we now make our way to the top of The Nut. Take the exhilarating climb to the summit or enjoy an easy chairlift journey up and down the most photo-graphed land formation of Tasmania. Whether you have hiked or taken the Nut’s chairlift to the top, either way the spectacular views and peaceful air will be worth the effort.

To make the most of our time in Stanley we are staying overnight at two waterfront properties on Wharf Road. After check-in you have time for a stroll along the beach or the street lined with picturesque old cottages, or just unwind and relax before our restaurant dinner. Well after dark, the Fairy Penguins are heading to their burrows. For those who have the energy, take an easy 15-minute walk to Godfrey’s Beach penguin viewing platform and wait for the world’s smallest penguins to come home for the night.  (Day 5 Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner, Overnight in Stanley)

Sheffield, Launceston, Tamar Valley, Seahorse World, Cataract Gorge, Bicheno and Freycinet National Park

Today we leave the Northwest part of Tasmania and make our way to Launceston. Our first stop takes us to Sheffield. Once a centre for industry, the town has reinvented itself as an art community. Be inspired by the many murals in town telling us stories of the past. For lunch we travel to the Christmas Hills Raspberry Farm. Treat yourself with waffles or pancakes, eggs benedict or a different savory meal option. We arrive in Launceston in the afternoon with plenty of time to take a walk to Cataract Gorge Reserve. Walk across the suspension bridge or stroll around the wonderful gardens. Finish the day with a delicious restaurant dinner at the Kingsbridge Bar. (Day 6 Conti Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner, Overnight in Launceston)


After a well-earned sleep in or an early morning walk in Kings Park, we head out for a beautiful day trip to Tamar Valley, Beauty Point and Beaconsfield. Start with a behind the scenes tour at Seahorse World. Having won many tourism awards, it truly is a marvellous place to learn about the mini steeds that change colour and come in different sizes and shapes. After lunch we make our way to Beaconsfield. You see not only an extensive display of the very moving mine accident at the Beaconsfield Mine and Heritage Centre, but you can find other very interesting exhibits and some beautiful heritage buildings.

Our next stop takes us to Brady’s Lookout a fabulous place with magnificent views of the Tamar Valley, distant mountains, and vineyards. Tamar Valley is the largest grape growing region in Tasmania with many boutique cellar doors, eateries, and distilleries. We cannot leave the valley without having tasted some locally made drinks. Made from pure Tasmanian water, premium grape base and unique botanicals, the small batch gin at Turner Stillhouse is a real treat. Choose between a structured gin tasting, a delicious cocktail or non-alcoholic mocktail. Back in Launceston enjoy a stroll along the riverfront precinct or to the town centre before dinner. (Day 7 Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner, Overnight in Launceston)


We continue our iconic Tasmania Tour by travelling to the East Coast. Our first stop is Campbell Town, home to the amazing tree carvings telling the history of the town. For lunch we visit the Freycinet Marine Farm, home to the finest local seafood. From here Freycinet National Park is only a short distance away. For the more active traveller take the 1.5-hour Wineglass Bay walk and climb the 900 steps up and down to a scenic lookout. We then browse the fabulous National Park’s Visitor Information Centre and discover Great Oyster Bay with wonderful coastal views. Mid-afternoon we drive to Bicheno, a small seaside town and our home for the next two nights. (Day 8 Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner, Overnight in Bicheno)

Wineglass Bay Cruise, Port Arthur Historic Site, Tasman National Park, Tasman Island Cruise, Richmond

Today we experience the spectacular coastline of Freycinet National Park on the award-winning Wineglass Bay Cuise from Coles Bay. From hidden sea caves, blowholes, granite cliffs to sparkling white sand beaches the catamaran cruise not only highlights stunning scenery but is full of wildlife encounters. A fabulous way of seeing Wineglass Bay and learning about the rich history of the region. Back in Bicheno there is plenty of time to explore the town. Take a walk to the Blowhole and Whalers Lookout for great photo opportunities, browse the local shops, or head to the Farm Shed for a wine tasting. We all join back for our restaurant dinner. (Day 9 Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner, Overnight in Bicheno)  


After all this natural beauty we continue our Tasmania journey towards Port Arthur. Explore the Tessellated Pavement, the Tasman Arch, Devils Kitchen, and the Blow Hole all part of the Tasman National Park, situated high above the ocean with sheer cliff drops and monumental rock formations. A morning full of photo opportunities. For lunch we eat at the Doo-lishus Van. Try the local Fish & Chips or Scallop Pie.

With only two days to go on our iconic Tasmania Tour, you may be looking for some gifts to take home. We visit the Tasmania Chocolate Foundry in the heart of the Tasman Peninsula. All kinds of handmade chocolates and chocolate products can be purchased here. Best to save up your pocket money until today as it is hard to decide which chocolate flavour to buy. Let us treat you with a delicious lavender milkshake or iced coffee at Port Arthur Lavender. In addition, a fabulous place to stock up on divine smelling little gifts. Arrive in Port Arthur mid-afternoon and check-in to your accommodation for the next two nights. We are within walking distance of the Port Arthur Historic Site, and you are free to go for a sunset walk and photographs. Join back for dinner at our motel. (Day 10 Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner, Overnight in Port Arthur)  


We had an amazing tour so far and we are about to embark on another exceptional experience – the Tasman Island Cruise. Explore waterfalls, rock formations and deep-sea caves on a great 3-hour adventure. The cruise travels beneath the highest vertical sea cliffs in the Southern Hemisphere at Cape Pillar and we will see thousands of sea birds of all kinds, most likely seals, and pods of dolphins. After this spectacular cruise we have lunch at the historic site before hearing about Port Arthur’s history as a convict settlement. Our visit includes a self-guided audio experience and a short harbour cruise. The historic buildings are open until 5pm and the grounds and gardens until dusk. We all join back for dinner and our final night. (Day 11 Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner, Overnight in Port Arthur)


Day 12 has arrived, and we travel back to Hobart today. On route we stop in Richmond to see the Richmond Bridge, Australia’s oldest stone span bridge still in use. Only a short drive away we visit Coal River Farm, a family business that combines growing, making and sharing. Having won many awards for their handmade chocolates and cheeses Coal River Farm’s High Cheese Experience is a fantastic finish to our iconic Tasmania Tour. Enjoy a selection of artisan cheeses, fruit paste, nuts, crisp breads, and chocolates and soak up the real love for fresh produce and farm life.

We are now on the final leg to Hobart, and it is time to say goodbye. Let us drop you off at the airport by 12.30pm for a flight back home from 2pm onwards. And if staying another night in Hobart, our city centre drop off is around 1pm. (Day 12 Breakfast, High Cheese Experience)

I’ve watched many travel shows over the years featuring what they suggest are the best places to visit in Tasmania. But what these travel shows don’t prepare you for are the passionate locals you meet along the way. Luckily I found Australian Iconic Tours, a tour company that not only opened up and let you delve into many of the well-known areas being, The Nut at Stanley, Cradle Mountain-Lake St. Clair National Park, the Salamanca markets in Hobart and Port Arthur historic village.  Australian Iconic Tours also exhibited many places you may not have heard so much about like the Avenue of remembrance tree carvings in Legerwood, The Tin Dragon interpretation centre at Derby or Ashgrove cheese farm where you can eat wasabi cheese! While on this tour I had many memorable adventures for instance at Queenstown I hopped on board the West coast wilderness railway steam train, or when I settled back in the Captain’s deck on the Gordon River cruise at Strahan, and then near Port Arthur the tour uncovered hidden treasures on the Tasman Island wilderness cruise.

I would like to thank Australian Iconic Tours for organizing a breath taking journey through Tasmania. I not only became friends with people on the bus who had travelled from all over the world and Australia, I also met many wonderful characters across Tasmania.
I can’t recommend this tour enough, don’t just put Tassie on you bucket list make it the first thing you do on the list.
