A short coastal adventure that’s big on local culture and cuisine
Taking you from the heart of Hobart to the tip of the Tasman Peninsula, this 4-day explorer tour packs in all the highlights of south eastern Tasmania. With a friendly leader to guide the way, you’ll chat with friendly locals in the capital city’s markets, sample the homegrown flavours of Bruny Island, learn about the region’s colonial past and explore a rugged, wild coastline shaped over the centuries by the southern seas. This is the perfect adventure to see the best of the Hobart area in a short amount of time.
Experience the best of southern Tasmania, from the bustling capital to the quiet seaside, with plenty of options for customising your trip to suit your interests.
Explore local life in historic Hobart as you browse through the markets and chat directly with producers about their locally sourced goods.
See the highlights of the picturesque Tasman Peninsula, such as the rocky formations of Tasman Arch and Devil’s Kitchen, the secluded Crescent Bay and the tragically historic Port Arthur.
Discover the rugged beauty and delicious flavours of Bruny Island as you sample local delicacies and explore national parkland where towering cliffs fall away into the crashing sea.
Visit a fourth-generation family-run orchard to learn about the history of apple farming on Tasmania and try locally produced cider.
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.
