Get under the surface of Tasmania as you explore its diverse landscape - beaches, parks, forests and mountains.
Much of this pristine wilderness state was – up until around 100 years ago – considered too remote to be used as much more than a penal colony. Fast-forward to now and that environment still remains pristine, but there are a few more creature comforts to make the journey an absolute pleasure. Take in the sights of Hobart and the surrounding area from Mt Wellington, and enjoy the view from other stunning lookouts like Donahy and Marion as well. Discover immaculate UNESCO-listed forests and hike along the stunning Hazards Beach after a morning stroll to Wineglass Bay. There’s plenty of time to explore Tasmania at your own pace and enjoy the vast array of food, wine, history and sights.
As well as visiting key attractions such as Wineglass Bay and the Bay of Fires, this pioneering trip takes you to parts of Tassie that are more off the beaten track

Excellent short break that captures lots of the highlights of Tasmania. Remember to pack for cool and wet weather no matter when you travel -- we walked through proper snow at Cradle Mountain in November! Special mention here to Luke who was an absolutely fantastic guide. Very knowledgeable, very well organised, very professional and went out of his way to make sure we saw and did as much as possible.
