Bonorong Wildlife Sanctuary
DAY ONE - WELCOME TO TASMANIA!

Tasmania is probably the best driving destination in Australia! On arrival in Hobart, pick up your rental car and let the adventure begin!

For your first two nights you will stay in a 2 bedroom apartment at Somerset On Salamanca.

Your adventure begins with a personal night tour of Bonorong Wildlife Sanctuary. Your guide will get you up close and personal with Australian native animals, including feeding echidnas, kangaroos, tawny frogmouths and potoroos. Enjoy an extensive session on Tasmanian Devils as you learn their names, stories, personalities and little known facts about them. If you are brave enough you may even hand feed them and have photos taken right next to a devil.

DAY TWO – TASMAN COAST ECO CRUISE & PORT ARTHUR HISTORIC SITE

Spend a day on the Tasman Peninsula - an award-winning, 3-hour wilderness and wildlife cruise takes you along the spectacular coastline between Eaglehawk Neck and Port Arthur. You will see Australia’s highest sea cliffs, enter deep sea caves and spot the abundant sea and coastal wildlife such as seals, dolphins and birds of prey. After lunch, there is a 3-hour visit to the Port Arthur Historic Site before your guided trip back to Hobart.

DAY THREE – HOBART TO BICHENO

Enjoy a scenic drive to beautiful Bicheno. Check into your 2 bedroom apartment at Diamond Island Resort.

DAY FOUR – WINEGLASS BAY CRUISE & TWILIGHT PADDLE SEA KAYAK TOUR

Experience the tranquility of Tasmania’s Freycinet Peninsula on a journey that will refresh your soul and revitalize your senses. You’ll cruise from the gentle coves of Coles Bay along the Freycinet coast to one of the world’s best beaches at Wineglass Bay.

Discover Tasmania’s greatest sea kayaking destination on this relaxed, 3-hour guided tour. You’ll glide beneath pink granite mountains, past pristine sandy beaches and across waters so crystal clear you feel like you can touch the marine life below. No experience necessary.  

DAY FIVE – BICHENO TO LONGFORD

Enjoy a beautiful leisurely drive to Longford. Stay in a 2 bedroom Sweetcorn Farm Cottage at Brickendon and the Historic Farming Village. You have the rare opportunity to experience and enjoy early colonial Tasmania. The buildings that make up the village were all purpose built and have been used continuously for farming activities over the past 170 years.

Canopy zipline adventure
DAY SIX – LONGFORD TO LAUNCESTON

Drive just 30 minutes for an unforgettable, high-wire canopy tour. Fly across the treetops in this award winning and unique forest experience, gaining a bird's-eye view of Tasmania's beautiful forests. This fantastic adventure is unlike any other Australian nature experience. The 3-hour tour combines the adrenaline rush of a high-wire canopy ride with an informative and highly entertaining outlook of the forest.

When the adrenaline has worn off, settle in for your last night in Tassie at Leisure Inn Penny Royal in Launceston.

DAY SEVEN – DEPARTURE

Say goodbye to the natural beauty, warm locals, and your new favorite place, and make your way to the airport.
