In the afternoon we stroll around historical Hobart CBD at your leisure before Fish & Chips on the wharf. Note: Maritime Museum and Wildlife Park included.
(CB, MD, Motel) A whole day trip to Port Arthur to hear and see the dreadful history of Australia’s most infamous prison. The Port Arthur penal settlement began life as a small timber station in 1830. Port Arthur quickly grew in importance within the penal system of the colonies. The initial decade of settlement saw a penal station hacked from the bush, and the first manufactories – such as ship building, shoemaking, smithing, timber and brick making established. In the 1840s the convict population reached over 1100. Note: Entry to Port Arthur included.
(CB, MD, Motel) Off to the West Coast, via New Norfolk and very impressive Russell Falls and along the mountain roads to “The Wall in the Wilderness” a grand artwork by local wood artist Greg Duncan. Past Lake St Clair then on to the spectacular bald hills of Queenstown. The vegetation killed by acid rain emitted from the copper smelters of earlier times. Note: Wall entry included.
(CB, PL, MD, Motel) To Strahan for a wonderful cruise on the Gordon River, one of the most beautiful rivers in Australia. We venture deep into the UNESCO Tasmanian Wilderness World Heritage Area to share with you, the ancient rainforest, mysterious history and colourful characters of Tasmania’s west coast. Enjoy lunch on board before alighting to walk through the forest. Returning to Macquarie Harbour and Strahan. Note: Boat cruise included.
(CB, MD, Motel) Climbing high into the mountains to view Cradle Mountain from the picturesque Dove Lake, explore the diverse vegetation at around 1500m above sea level. Down the other side of the range, we stop in on some of the local produce on the way to reach the North Coast for two nights at Devonport.
