Overview

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

Short Description

The spectacularly green island-state of Tasmania invites exploration—the WT way! We’ll hike amid towering tree ferns at Mt. Field National Park, sail by private yacht to infamous Sarah Island, and look for wallaby, wombats, and Tasmanian devils on our hikes in stunning Cradle Mountain National Park. On the Freycinet Peninsula, with its pink granite peaks and sandy beaches, we enjoy a fabulous coastal hike and sundowners on the beach. Our Trip Leaders share the secrets of Tassie’s superb food, from fresh-shucked oysters to artisan cheeses, and we’ll sip the finest local chardonnays and pinot noirs. Our accommodations are elegant, including lodges warmed by roaring fires and cozy cabins overlooking the deep blue Tasman Sea.

Small groups are usually defined as between 10 and 24 travelers, often less. If you're the kind of person who enjoys more intimate experiences and personal service this is a good choice. All else being equal you will pay a premium for this style vs a larger group tour.

The Saturday Salamanca Market is Australia’s most famous outdoor market, and we’ll stroll through it before we hike to the summit of Mt.

Franklin-Gordon Wild Rivers National Park offers trails through primeval temperate forests, and we’ll be met by our friend Captain Trevor for an excursion by yacht through Macquarie Harbour to historic Sarah Island, a notorious 19th century convict settlement. Cradle Mountain National Park is the setting for our hikes through alpine moorlands where wallaby, wombats, possums, quolls, and Tasmanian devils are often encountered, especially as night falls.

Days 7-8: Freycinet National Park

Accommodation: Edge of the Bay Resort

En route to Freycinet National Park, we sample the wares at a unique freshwater salmon farm and sip Tasmanian wines at a local cellar. Our spectacular coastal hike brings us to Hazards Beach, then across the isthmus to Wineglass Bay for a picnic on Tasmania’s most famous beach.
