All about the 7 Day Best of Tasmania Hobart To Hobart Tour

Experience the highlights of Tasmania’s east and west coasts with this tour beginning and ending in the island state capital of Hobart. 

We include a wide range of Tasmanian taste experiences with cheese, salmon, chocolate and honey tasting across the six days. Every departure is guaranteed. See Bruny Island, Port Arthur, Cradle Mountain, Wineglass Bay, Bay of Fires, Cataract Gorge and more. Follow the colonial route to Port Arthur via the historic village of Richmond, home to significant architecture including the oldest bridge and oldest Catholic church in Australia

The seven-day Best of Tasmania tour is the complete Tasmanian experience. It combines magnificent Bruny Island with the convict history of Port Arthur and the dramatic scenery of the Tasman Peninsula. The rugged beauty of the Wild West and the stunning white beaches of the East Coast complete an incredible week.

The weather in Tasmania is famously varied, with four distinct seasons (sometimes all occurring in one day!) The east coast is the dry, sunny, warm side of the island. The west coast is mountains, rainforest and untouched wilderness. Bring lots of layers on tour, and you will enjoy the outdoors in whatever weather Tasmania has to throw at you.

If you really want to say you've seen the best that Tasmania has to offer, this is the tour for you.
