Highlights
  • Spectacular Cradle Mountain, a World Heritage Site, and Freycinet, Tasmania’s premier coastal park
  • Exhilarating hikes amid ancient forests and exotic Down Under flora and fauna
  • Yacht cruise in Macquarie Harbour with a historian, Salamanca Market in Hobart
  • Welcoming lodges, great local food and wine

Tasmania, “the island at the edge of the world,” is a pristine realm of wild mountains, magnificent rainforests, and tranquil harbors and villages bathed in the vivid light of Down Under. You’ll experience it all with veteran—and beloved—Trip Leader James Fuss, an Aussie native and seasoned Tassie explorer. Mountain, coastal, and rainforest hikes bring you from the Cradle Mountain wilderness, a World Heritage Site, to the azure bays of the Freycinet Peninsula. Along with the adventure, you’ll savor the island’s great food and wine (James is a trained chef!) and the comforts of our carefully selected accommodations that include wilderness lodges warmed by roaring fires and cozy cabins overlooking the deep blue Tasman Sea.

Stroll among fruit sellers, artists, and musicians at the lively Saturday market in Hobart, then hike up Mt. Wellington for unsurpassed views across southeastern Tasmania. Heading into Mt.

Accommodation: Edge of the Bay Resort

After meeting koalas, wallabies, and kangaroos at Trowunna, you’ll enjoy wine tasting and a winery lunch en route to gorgeous Freycinet National Park. Our hikes here reveal a landscape of secluded bays and sheer pink granite cliffs. From our lodge, the views over Wineglass Bay are simply stunning.
