Discover the many faces of Tasmania with this 10-day self-drive package that showcases The Heartlands, The Western Wilds, The Northern Forage and the Great Eastern Drive.
Tasmania is a compact island with well-built roads that make it the ideal self-drive holiday destination. This package showcases the best of the Island’s must-see sights: Hobart, Strahan, Cradle Mountain, Launceston, the Bay of Fires and Freycinet National Park. In between these iconic destinations, you have the freedom to find the things you need – fresh air, fantastic food and wine – and much you never expected.
Departing from Hobart, follow the Lyell Highway inland through lands traditionally owned by Tasmanian Indigenous Peoples, settled by Europeans in the early 1800s, and farmed and loved by generations of Tasmanians ever since. Along the way, pass gorgeous Georgian towns such as New Norfolk and the fabulous Franklin-Gordon Wild Rivers National Park.
In the harbourside town of Strahan, immerse yourself in the Western Wilds. Cruise the Gordon Rivers’ perfect reflections and learn the stories of rogues and rivals fighting for a share of untold mining riches. Then, venture to Cradle Mountain-Lake St Clair National Park, an ancient realm of temperate rainforests and alpine plains, indominable mountains and glacial valleys. Hike the best parts of the world-famous Overland Track and stay in one of the Lonely Planet’s Top 10 Most Extraordinary Places To Stay.
The midpoint of your journey brings you to The Northern Forage. Bordered by the wild coastline of Bass Strait, a journey across this part of Tasmania is a chance to slow down, forage or follow your food from paddock to plate at some of the most fertile farms and pasture in Australia. Stop at farm-gate stalls, distilleries and cellar doors for tastings, and to meet the makers. You’ll spend a night in Launceston, one of Australia’s oldest cities and a vibrant hub for food and wine.
Cap off your adventure on the Great Eastern Drive. From the Bay of Fires to Freycinet National Park, discover long white sand beaches, dramatic coastline, and the time and space to unwind. Cruise crystal clear waters, marvel at orange-lichen coloured boulders, kayak beneath pink granite mountains, and hike to the iconic Wineglass Bay, routinely voted one of the world’s best beaches. You’ll return to Hobart with a greater appreciation of life’s simple luxuries.
This 10-day self-drive package includes 9-nights in handpicked, boutique accommodations in Hobart, Strahan, Cradle Mountain-Lake St Clair National Park, Launceston, Bay of Fires, Freycinet National Park and Richmond on a twin share basis. Select meals are included as well as activities and experiences as listed in the itinerary.
Experience Tasmania’s highlights in slow pace – and in style – with this relaxed 10-day self-drive package that takes you full circle around the Island. There is no better way to see Tasmania than on the open road.
