Itinerary

Expand All

Day 1 : Welcome To Launceston

Location: Launceston, Cataract Gorge

Accommodation Name: Best Western Plus Launceston

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

Location: Bridestowe, Legerwood Carved Memorial Trees, Bicheno

Accommodation Name: Beachfront at Bicheno

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 a lavender 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.

Day 3 : Bicheno - Hobart

Location: Freycinet Peninsula, Freycinet National Park, Coles Bay, Wineglass Bay, Richmond

Accommodation Name: Best Western Hobart

Soak in the beauty of the breathtaking Freycinet Peninsula on your Tasmania tour on a MAKE TRAVEL MATTER® Experience that contributes to the preservation of its wildlife. 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 and Wineglass bays, framed by pink granite cliff faces and silvery eucalypts. There’s a reason why this place stars on postcards. 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.

Day 4 : Port Arthur Historic Site

Location: Port Arthur Historic Site, Isle of the Dead, Devils Kitchen, Bicheno Blowhole

Accommodation Name: Best Western Hobart

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.

Day 5 : Farewell From Hobart

Location: Hobart

Short and sweet and packed with highlights – this Tasmanian tour is sure to inspire future travels.

  • Who will be my travelling companions on the tour?

    The beauty of taking a holiday with us is you’ll have the opportunity to meet and travel with people from all over the globe.

  • Can I join the tour once it has departed?

    It is important to adhere to departure times while on tour for the comfort of everyone on-board, and to make sure no one misses out on the planned experiences. The coach will not be able to wait for you, and in some instances, if you miss a departure time you will need to make your own way to the next destination to re-join the tour.

    AAT Kings operated Guided Holidays have competitive single supplement rates available if you prefer to confirm your own room. Or we can match you to share with a guest of the same gender at no extra cost. If we fail to match you, we will accommodate you in a single room at no extra cost.

    Over 100 years

  • What documents will I receive before I travel?

    We will email your documents to you approximately four weeks before your departure date provided you have completed your pre trip registration using the My Travel Portal. If you’ve booked through a travel agent, your documents will be emailed directly to your agent.
