Mt Field National Park tall trees walk, Guided hike at stunning Cradle Mountain, Scenic Lake St Clair, Coastal village of Strahan and optional activities
Day 1 – Hobart to Strahan
Welcome to the Apple Isle!
We start our journey early in the morning from Hobart with our first stop, Mt Field National Park, a favourite among Tasmanians. The beauty of this park stems from its diverse vegetation including its Swamp Gums, the tallest trees in Australia. You have a chance to witness these towering natural wonders during our Tall Trees walk when your guide will explain the various flora and fauna that calls Mt Field home. After you explore the giants of the forest, take a walk along the bottom of the beautiful cascading Russell Falls.
The drive to our next stop for the day, Lake St Clair is one of Australia’s most scenic. It is here you will see Australia’s deepest lake at 167 metres. The lake was formed from ice glaciers over the last two million years and feeds the Derwent River which winds its way to Hobart.
The breathtaking backdrop of Mt Olympus sets a perfect scene for some great holiday snaps while you take a walk around the area.
From Lake St Clair it is onto the quiet but picturesque west coast village of Strahan where you will settle into our private lodge overlooking Macquarie Harbour for the two nights. (L)
Day 2 - Strahan and the Tarkine wilderness
Today you have a few options to explore the beautiful west coast. Your guide will take you off the beaten track into the Tarkine wilds where ancient forest meet prehistoric mountains. A highlight is the stunning Huon Pines growing alongside the Pieman River which have been growing for thousands of years. Your guide will take you on a collection of moderate walks in this remote area before returning to Strahan. If exploring unspoilt wilderness is not your thing, then you may like to go on a jet boating adventure on the King River or a relaxing, peaceful cruise along the Gordon River learning about the area's convict history (both at additional expense). We spend another night in our exclusive accommodation. (B,L)
Day 3 – Strahan to Launceston
This morning it is a 90-minute drive to the stunning Cradle Mountain. Those feeling energetic can embark on a hike with your guide along the jagged contours of the mountain taking in the serene beauty of your surroundings. If you’d rather take it easy then there are less strenuous walks around the majestic Dove Lake.
Don’t forget to keep your eye out for one of our Aussie icons, the wombat. While they may look cute and cuddly they can tend to be a bit grumpy, so keep your distance.
After plenty of scenic photographs we make our way to the northern city of Launceston via the Ashgrove Cheese Factory for a delicious cheese tasting session. (B,L)
