Hobart – Strahan – Cradle Mountain - Smithton – Launceston
Your Tasmanian holiday begins with an afternoon tour of Hobart.

Nelson, which affords panoramic views over Australia’s southernmost city. Enjoy the company of your Travel Director and fellow travellers this evening at a Welcome Reception and dinner.

This morning you will head west to New Norfolk and magnificent Mt. Field National Park and take a walk through lush rainforest to the many-tiered cascade of picturesque Russell Falls. Then enjoy the scenic drive to iconic Lake St. Clair, the deepest freshwater lake in Australia, and continue through the rainforest to the coastal town of Strahan. Nestled on the shores of massive Macquarie Harbour, Strahan is the gateway to the World Heritage listed Franklin-Gordon Wild Rivers National Park.

Today’s highlight is a lunch cruise on the Gordon River.
