The dramatic, natural beauty of north west Tasmania awaits on this 5-day discovery tour. Make a loop from the historic city of Launceston, up along the coast and then back inland, passing though seaside towns, ancient rainforest and Aboriginal heritage sites along the way. Hike the coastal trails of Narawntapu and Rocky Cape national parks, explore the richness of the Tarkine and take in sweeping ocean views from clifftop lookouts. In between sightseeing, sample the best flavours of the region, from whiskey to cheese to chocolate truffles, with visits to locally owned shops on the Cradle to Coast Tasting Trail.

Learn about the rich Aboriginal heritage of this area, where artefacts can still be found along the walking trails. Together, we’ll enjoy a platter lunch at an amazing cidery that is part of Tasmania’s Cradle to Coast Tasting Trail. You may opt to sample their local brews – perhaps a vintage pear cider.

In Stanley, climb the famous landmark The Nut, an ancient volcanic plug that juts out into the Bass Strait and offers outstanding views from the top.

At night, there is an optional dinner at Hursey Seafood, another part of the Tasting Trail.Included Activities:-Stanley - Visit to Penguin-Stanley - Table Cape Lighthouse Visit-Launceston - Narawntapu National Park-Launceston - Platter style lunch at Spreyton Cider Co.-Stanley - Climb The Nut
