Itinerary
This is a typical itinerary for this product

Stop At: Pirates Bay/Eaglehawk Neck, Southeast Tasmania, Tasmania Australia

Today is action packed and fast paced, so we make an early start from Hobart and drive directly to the stunning Tasman Peninsula. This area has amazing history, fascinating stories and spectacular scenery. It is also home to Australia’s highest sea cliffs. We enjoy the panoramic views of the area from Pirates Bay Lookout which provides a great vantage here of the surrounding area.

Passing through Eaglehawk Neck and "The Dogline" our Tour Guides will share with you some fascinating stories and history of the area.

Duration: 11 hours

Stop At: Waterfall Bay, Tasman Arch Carpark, Eaglehawk Neck, Tasmania Australia

The Waterfall Bay track is one of Tasmania's "Great Short Walks". We follow a spectacular track, of around 2 km’s along the spectacular cliff tops. The walk takes around 45-60 minutes, is undulating, but categorised as an easy walk. Suitable for active and fit people. The track concludes at the remarkable rock formations of Tasman Arch and Devil’s Kitchen.

Duration: 45 minutes

Stop At: Port Arthur Historic Site, Arthur Highway, Port Arthur, Tasmania 7182 Australia

You will have time to enjoy a visit to Port Arthur Lavender’s visitor centre and café. Here they showcase millennia-old uses of this fragrant flower alongside modern cuisine and a fully functioning essential oil distillery.

Stroll around the lavender trail or take in the ocean views while enjoying fresh Tasmanian produce in the lavender-inspired café.

Next stop is Port Arthur Historic Site. You will find a wealth of information and history to take in and discover. Your entry includes a complimentary Harbour Cruise around the Isle of the Dead and a guided walking tour with one of the Site’s expert guides. Discover the grim and violent history of the early Australian Penal system and get a sense of the isolation experienced by the convicts in this “inescapable prison”. With around 3 hours here, you have ample time to explore the main penitentiary; see the solitary confinement cells and many more buildings in this World Heritage open air museum.

Duration: 4 hours

Stop At: Richmond, Richmond, Clarence, Greater Hobart, Tasmania

On our return to Hobart, we travel via the historic township of Richmond. Arriving late the in the afternoon, you will have time to meander the streets, stop for a coffee, visit the Lolly Shop, check out the Chocolatier and walk across Australia’s oldest bridge still in use – a convict built sand-stone bridge, reported to be haunted!

Finally, before we re-enter Hobart we stop for a fabulous view across Hobart from a local lookout. A picturesque way to return to the city.
