Maria Island and Freycinet National Park are jewels in Tasmania’s already studded crown of coastal wonders and on this hiking adventure, you’ll be able to discover both and more in all the East Coast’s wild beauty. From Launceston, spend five days hiking some of the southern state’s best coastal walks, including part of the Three Capes Track, the Fossil Cliffs and the awe-inspiring Wineglass Bay. Take a wilderness cruise with an expert local guide, looking out for migrating whales, seals, dolphins and sea eagles, as you pass underneath rock formations and past hidden sea coves, towering cliffs and a diverse coastline. With a knowledgeable leader joining you each step of the way, plus a selection of group dinners in some of the state’s best dining locations, you’re sure to come home with some pretty great memories.

Why you'll love this trip
  • Navigate the scenic Cape Freycinet isthmus on foot, marvelling at the white sands of Wineglass Bay and discovering lesser-known beaches and coves along the way.
  • Cruise past steep cliffs and hidden coves on a wilderness cruise along the natural beauty of Tasman National Park – look out for migrating whales, dolphins, seals and the abundant birdlife that live here.
  • Embark on two scenic walks across the Three Capes Track and soak in the natural wonders of Cape Raoul and Cape Hauy as you walk past wildflowers and coastal views.
  • Keep an eye out for soaring sea birds and Australian animals like kangaroos and wombats as you walk. Plus, depending on the time of the year, you could spot a breaching whale from these promontories!

An excellent introduction to the coastal walks of Tasmania's East Coast. A good physical challenge, but not overly so.
