Tour Overview

Tasmania may be small, but it’s packed with East Coast highlights that you’ll get to experience on this Launceston to Hobart tour. Stop to smell (and taste) the flowers amid lavender plantations, marvel at well-preserved Georgian architecture, witness convict history and spot the state’s cute critters, tiny penguins to Tassie devils. Complete your journey with a dip at Wineglass Bay – the surrounding Freycinet Peninsula was made for postcards.
