3 Day Wild West Coast Hobart To Launceston Tour Itinerary - 3 days

  • Day 1 Hobart to Tullah
    The majestic rainforests of Mount Field National Park and beautiful Russell Falls kick off our Wild West experience. If you’ve come to see wildlife, your guide will point out animals that are only found in Tasmania, such as the very cute Pademelon. Continuing north we visit the hydro-electric town of Tarraleah, with its wonderful lookout perched atop Tasmania’s Central Plateau.

    Shortly afterwards we reach the famous Lake St Clair, on the eastern edge of Tasmania’s World Heritage Wilderness Area. It’s the deepest lake in Australia, so soak in the scenery and enjoy the peacefulness of lunch by the lakeside (you might even see a platypus)

    From here we begin a drive through the stunning Tasmanian Wilderness World Heritage Area. The incredible views from Donaghy’s Hill stretch in all directions. Walking to the top, you’ll see the quartzite peak of Frenchmans Cap, and the iconic Franklin River winds its way through the valley below.

    Overnight - Jump Holiday House at Tullah
  • Day 2 Strahan and the Tarkine wilderness
    An action packed day today in the heart of Tassie’s wild West Coast. First up we hit the walking track to Montezuma Falls - Tasmania’s highest waterfall. The track winds its way through lush rainforest, following the route of an old railway. The beautiful fishing town of Strahan is our lunch stop today - take the opportunity to immerse yourself in the history of what was once one of the most remote outposts of the British Empire.

    Just north of here are the massive Henty Dunes - climb to the top for a wonderful view across the Southern Ocean and a great Jumping experience! Below lies Ocean Beach, Tasmania’s longest. The waves crashing on this beach last touched land on the other side of the world.

    Overnight - Jump Holiday House at Tullah
  • Day 3 Cradle Mountain to Launceston
    You’ve got a number of walking options, from the easy jaunt around Dove Lake to the spectacular hike to the top of Marion’s Lookout - don’t forget to watch for the wombats and Tasmanian devils that thrive in this part of the world! After Cradle, it’s time for lunch in the “Town of Murals” - Sheffield! As the host of a major annual art competition, many of the buildings have large-scale artworks on their sides.

    Look out for the alpaca man! After lunch it’s time to tantalise the taste buds - there are over 50 different honey’s to try at the Chudleigh Honey Farm! Stay gourmet as we cruise along to 41 Degrees South. Aquaculture and try their delicious hot smoked salmon.
