Departing from Hobart, escape into Tasmania's wilderness and travel coast to coast to explore and experience the best of the island on this 5-day tour. Journey to the wild and rugged West Coast for waterfalls, rainforest and wildlife. Then experience the startling change of scenery as the tour continues on through the alpine wilderness of Cradle Mountain to the white sands of the Bay of Fires. Full of famous attractions, fun and adventure, this tour will show you the best of Tasmania! Day 1: Hobart to Strahan Depart Hobart at 7:00 AM and drive through the Derwent Valley, traveling east to west across the island. You’ll see the beautiful Russell Falls, walk among the Mt Field National Park Tall Trees, and visit Australia’s deepest freshwater lake, Lake St Clair. Explore the pristine Franklin-Gordon Wild River National Park and end the day in Strahan where you will stay overnight. Day 2: Wild West Coast (B)   In the untouched wilderness of Tasmania’s West Coast, explore the shifting sands of Henty Dunes.

Day 3: Cradle Mountain to Launceston (B) Around 950m above sea level is the World Heritage listed Cradle Mountain-Lake St Claire National Park, where you choose a walk to suit you. With an extensive range of tracks, stroll around Dove Lake or challenge yourself with a hike to Marion’s Lookout. A short drive takes you through Sheffield, the "town of murals", to Launceston. Stay overnight at Launceston. Day 4: Launceston to Bicheno (B) Head to the East Coast and the beautiful Bay of Fires.

What people are saying about Coles Bay

We loved our day walking in Freycinet with Corey. He was friendly and professional. The walk was conducted at a good pace and was fun but also challenging in parts. The views of Wineglass Bay from the top of the Hazards are a must see and the walk along a deserted Hazards Beach peaceful and something I won't ever forget. The morning tea and lunch provided were delicious. We all agreed that we wouldn't have enjoyed our day as much or understood the environment and history of the area without Corey expertly guiding us. The boat ride back to the lodge was also a highlight complete with seal viewing and a little whale hunt on the way back. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this tour

Beautiful trip with two phenomenal guides Steve & Misty. On this tour you’ll experience the best of the best locations Tassie has to offer. The knowledgeable & passionate guides will eagerly answer questions & ensure you’re having a good time to enjoy the day at your own pace. Not only will you be experiencing the great TASSIE outdoors, you’ll be surrounded by kind & genuine folks seeking to explore & connect with one another. 100% recommend doing this tour solo or with a couple of mates when down in Van Diemen’s Land. A big thank you to Steve & Misty & to the many new friendships for making this trip ever so magical & one to remember.

It's the best trip that I 've ever been. Stunning coast, rainforests, wild animals everything is so amazing. (we even found the wild platypus!!!) Thanks for the professional tour guides to tell us lots of stories about Tasmania. I will definitely travel again in the future.

I saw sooo much in 5 days . Tasmania is beautiful, even with shity weather. It rained most of the time while I was there and I even had snow on the cradle mountains ( it was Nov/Summer) but it was still beautiful and kinda mysterious in it own way.

Enjoy the strenuous activities with the group and the excellent tour guide/driver.
