Itinerary:

Valid for 01APR21-31MAR22:
Today is action packed and fast paced. 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. Enjoy the panoramic views of the area from Pirates Bay Lookout which provides a great vantage of the surrounding area. Passing through Eaglehawk Neck and “The Dogline”, your guide will share with you all the great stories of the area. Then begins one of Tasmania’s Great Short Walks. This is a short but spectacular track along the Waterfall Bay Clifftop. The walk is around 45 minutes, undulating and categorised as an easy walk. The track concludes at the remarkable rock formations of Tasman Arch and Devil’s Kitchen.
Next stop is the Tasmanian Devil Unzoo. You arrive here for all the action of a Tasmanian Devil Feeding. Watch the snarling, fighting and bone crushing in a spectacle of devilish behaviour during the feeding. Hand feed the wallabies and walk amongst the local fauna and flora in the charming “Unzoo” setting. Continuing the journey, arrive at Port Arthur Historic Site. As you enter, there is a wealth of information and history to take in and to explore. Your entry includes a 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 2.5 hours here, you have time to walk amongst the main penitentiary; see the solitary confinement cells and many more buildings in this World Heritage open air museum. On your return to Hobart, make a stop at Federation Chocolate Factory, a small family run boutique chocolate shop, with a variety of chocolate flavours to sample. Arrive in the late afternoon into historic Richmond Village - meander the streets, stop for a coffee, visit the Lolly Shop and walk across Australia’s oldest bridge still in use - a convict built sand-stone bridge, reported to be haunted! Finally, before you re-enter Hobart, stop for a fabulous view across Hobart from a local lookout. A picturesque way to return to the city. Tour returns by approximately 6:00pm.
