Day 1 HOBART – TASMAN PENINSULA
Start your day with an introduction to Hobart and its engaging history. Enjoy a scenic drive to the alpine wilderness of Mt Wellington, the 1270m peak, which provides the dramatic backdrop to the city and offers stunning views (weather dependant). Stroll through forested gullies along historic tracks and explore Tasmania’s flora and fauna on some of the shorter bushwalks.

Accommodation: Stewarts Bay Lodge (Premium Chalet) Meals: Breakfast and Lunch
Day 2 TASMAN PENINSULA
Get ready for some of the most spectacular coastal lookouts in Tasmania, today’s walk takes you to Cape Hauy. Skirt the rocky coastline before heading inland into the She Oaks and Banksia scrub of this beautiful lower coastline. The forest then opens to the undulating slopes of Cape Hauy. The steepest part of today’s walk is down onto the cape. Venture out to the tip of the cape where views stretch out over sea cliffs and you may catch a glimpse of brave rock climbers tackling the Totem Pole and other dolerite columns, while islands rise up from the sea. From here retrace your steps back to where the white sands of Fortescue Bay beg for a bracing swim.
Accommodation: Stewarts Bay Lodge (Premium Chalet) Meals: Breakfast and Lunch (Picnic)
Day 3 TASMAN PENINSULA – MARIA ISLAND – FREYCINET NATIONAL PARK
After an early rise travel to the seaside village of Triabunna and board a ferry to cross the Mercury Passage to Maria Island. This unique island national park sits just off Tasmania’s east coast. Enjoy a day of peaceful walking along historic ruins, sweeping bays, rugged fossil cliffs and imposing mountains. This island sanctuary provides an opportunity to view its resident wildlife including bare nosed wombats, Cape Barren geese, Tasmanian pademelons, kangaroo, wallabies and, if you are lucky, even the Tasmanian Devil in their natural environment. In the afternoon you continue along Tasmania’s East Coast, with its exceptional beauty, pristine white sandy beaches and granite coastline before you settle in to your accommodation for the night.
Accommodation: Freycinet Lodge (One Room Cabin) Meals: Breakfast and Lunch (Picnic)
