Explore the edge of the world along Tasmania’s untamed Cradle Coast
The dramatic, natural beauty of north west Tasmania awaits on this 5-day discovery tour. Make a loop from the historic city of Launceston, up along the coast and then back inland, passing though seaside towns, ancient rainforest and Aboriginal heritage sites along the way. Hike the coastal trails of Narawntapu and Rocky Cape national parks, explore the richness of the Tarkine and take in sweeping ocean views from clifftop lookouts. In between sightseeing, sample the best flavours of the region, from whiskey to cheese to chocolate truffles, with visits to locally owned shops on the Cradle to Coast Tasting Trail.
Discover the natural beauty of Tasmania’s untamed Cradle Coast, from the ancient landscapes of Rocky Cape National Park to the seemingly endless stretch of ocean at the Edge of the World.
Explore the country’s oldest temperate rainforest with a visit to the Tarkine, home to unique species that have evolved over hundreds of millions of years and are a living connection to the Gondwana supercontinent.
Learn about the rich Aboriginal heritage and spiritual connections of Tasmania’s northern landmarks and national parklands.
Unplug and unwind with an overnight stay in a remote, rural community that was a booming mining town during the 1870s goldrush.
Indulge in delicacies like locally made ice cream and cider as you sample a variety of treats along Tasmania’s famed Cradle to Coast Tasting Trail.
Just as a heads up before you book: this trip is new to our range this year. And while we have thoroughly researched every detail of the logistics, new destinations can sometimes throw us some unexpected surprises. More often than not, it’ll be a great surprise. But every now and again there might be a hiccup. We like to think that’s what puts the ‘adventure’ in ‘adventure travel’.
This trip is suitable for anyone with a reasonable level of fitness. Please note that it includes several guided walks, allowing you to get among nature. Most are relatively short and easy although there are some more challenging options. However, joining a walk is always up to you. Please bring sturdy, comfortable walking shoes and comfortable clothing.
