You don’t have to arrive early into Launceston, but we highly recommend you do. Time on your side? Walk the short distance to Cataract Gorge, home to the longest single-span chairlift in the world. It’s quite the ride, taking you up high into this intensely beautiful, and spiritual, place. Otherwise, meet your Travel Director and fellow Tassie companions for a drink in the evening.

DAY 2: LAUNCESTON - BICHENO (Included Meals: Breakfast, Dinner)
Bridestowe is an assault on all your senses – in the best possible way. There’s the piercing purple of the lavender grown here, backdropped by horizon-wide blue sky. Then the musky aroma of the flowers, which has an instant calming effect. And the taste, beyond anything you ever imagined – try lavender in ice-cream, jams and teas, and thank us later. It’s a tasty entrée to the Legerwood Carved Memorial Trees, sculpted into World War One soldiers. Come dusk in Bicheno, sign up to spot tuxedoed little penguins waddle to shore from the water. Touring Tasmania doesn’t get any cuter than this.
Hotel: Beachfront at Bicheno
DAY 3: BICHENO - HOBART (Included Meals: Breakfast)
Nothing quite prepares you for the drama of Freycinet National Park – the colours here seem more vivid, the air crisper, the water cleaner, the skies wider. A patchwork of ocean blues lap Coles Bay and Wineglass Bay, pink granite cliff faces and silvery eucalypts. There’s a reason why this place stars on postcards. Talk about a Freycinet adventure to remember. The other destination that deserves notoriety is Richmond, its grand 1820s Georgian buildings today home to bijou boutiques, galleries and cafés that appear to be lost in time.
Hotel: Best Western Hobart
DAY 4: PORT ARTHUR (Included Meals: Breakfast, Farewell Dinner)
Port Arthur’s rather grim convict past is reflected in the names of attractions around it: Isle of the Dead, Devil’s Kitchen, the Blowhole… But believe us, they’re all spectacular. As is the Port Arthur Historic Site, its immaculately maintained buildings scattered over green pastures that fade into the Southern Ocean. Your private Port Arthur tour reveals the best-preserved convict site in Australia, and among the most significant convict-era destinations worldwide. The stories these walls could tell.
