This evening meet your Travel Director at a Welcome Reception before embarking on your journey along Tasmania’s glorious east.
Day 2 - Launceston - Freycinet
Bridestowe Lavender Estate is your first stop today. It has been growing lavender since 1922 when a London perfumer planted lavender seeds from the French Alps on his family estate which he named after his wife’s birthplace in England. Try some of Bridestowe’s lavender products and treat yourself to their famous lavender icecream! Later, stop at the Legerwood Carved Memorial Trees planted in honour of fallen WWI soldiers. Then follow the picturesque east coast south to Freycinet National Park. (B/D with wine)
Day 3 - Wineglass Bay Cruise
Another highlight day awaits you! Start it with a drive through dry eucalypt forests to Cape Tourville for a walk that will reward you with stunning views of brilliant blue water, forest and golden beach as far as the eye can see. Experience the exquisite beauty of Wineglass Bay on a four-hour lunch cruise of the Freycinet Peninsula. The cruise will take you from the gentle shores of Coles Bay along the Freycinet coast beneath towering pink granite cliffs to one of the world’s best beaches. Anchored at Wineglass Bay, you’ll have the chance to absorb the beauty of the National Park and enjoy a gourmet Ploughman’s lunch. (B/D with wine)
Day 4 - Freycinet - Hobart
Journey to historic Ross, considered the finest nineteenth century village in Australia. You must treat yourself to the self-proclaimed best scallop pie in Tasmania from one of the town’s town bakeries, or if you’ve got a sweet tooth, visit the other bakery for their famous vanilla slice!
