About Australia

4 Day Tassie Highlights Summary

Add to Shortlist

Day 1 Hobart/Port Arthur

Get a quick taste of the charms of Richmond, Australia’s best-preserved colonial village, before heading to the World Heritage-listed Port Arthur Historic Site. Take a guided walk and harbour cruise to delve into Tasmania’s ruthless convict past as you explore the preserved ruins and restored sandstone prison buildings. In the evening, drive up the east coast to the picturesque seaside village of Bicheno, stopping by Spikey Bridge and Swansea on the way.

Day 2 Freycinet National Park

Breathe in the fresh morning air as you take in the stunning vistas of Wineglass Bay. Spend a languid day lazing on a secluded beach and taking a dip in the gleaming waters. If you want more of an adrenaline rush, take a hike up Mt Amos or along the Hazards Beach trail. Visit a marine farm to see how oysters are harvested, and in the evening scout for little penguins as they return to their rookeries on the edges of this seaside village.

Day 3 Cradle Mountain National Park

Be captivated by the colourful murals lining the buildings of Sheffield, a Kentish town nestled in the foothills of Mount Roland. They depict the area’s rich history and lush natural scenery to make a unique outdoor museum. Continue on to Cradle Mountain National Park, a World Heritage-listed reserve with walking tracks twisting and turning among sensational flora and fauna. Stroll around serene Dove Lake, take in the sweeping view from Marion’s Lookout, and look for platypus before the sun goes down. After dark, perhaps take a walk to see any local nocturnal wildlife that might be pottering about.

Day 4 Mole Creek/Hobart

Take a stroll from Mole Creek to the Alum Cliffs, which are perched high above the Mersey River and rich in Aboriginal history. Then head to the Trowunna Wildlife Sanctuary and meet some Tasmanian devils. On the way back to Hobart, drop by some tasty farms and an historic bakery.
