Welcome to Australia’s island state, home to the Tassie Devil and the world’s cleanest air! This morning you’ll meet your Journey Director and fellow travellers before taking a walking tour of the historic Hobart docks, Salamanca Place. Connect with the local artists as you explore the many galleries and shops hidden in the old sandstone warehouses. Take in the sights, smells and sounds of the vibrant Salamanca Markets as you wander past hundreds of stalls overflowing with local produce, crafts, jewellery, freshly baked goods and artisanal cider. Working up a hunger, our next stop is lunch, just 20 minutes out of Hobart. Enjoy a three-course paddock to plate dining experience at the Agrarian Kitchen or, depending on the day, a 3 course seafood feast at Barilla Bay Oyster Farm. Either option will give you a scrumptious taste of what’s to come and ready for your afternoon visit to Australia’s Museum of Old and New Art (Mona), located within the grounds of stunning Moorilla Winery. Take a self-guided tour and immerse yourself in what is described by its owner as a “subversive adult Disneyland” before enjoying a relaxing ferry ride back to Hobart for a free evening at leisure.

Visit the Honey Pot before going behind the scenes and immersing yourself in traditional wooden boat building, lovingly crafted by hand. Stop by the side of the road to taste fresh apples, pears and berries from the local orchards before heading deep into the Aussie bush to experience the Tahune Airwalk, an elevated walkway 30 metres above the forest floor offering spectacular views of the Huon River and beyond to the peaks of the World Heritage Area. Working up a thirst, sample some local ciders at Willie Smiths Apple Shed before returning to the city. This evening indulge in a scrumptious dinner on Hobart’s waterfront with unsurpassed views of the city and Mt Wellington.

After breakfast, you’ll journey north to Triabunna where you’ll board a ferry across to Maria Island. Rich in indigenous and European history, abundant in wildlife, and boasting spectacular views and remarkable geological features, this entire island is a National Park. Once on shore, explore the convict-built Darlington township, take a walk to the Fossil Cliffs or Painted Cliffs, hire a bike, or simply relax and recharge by the waterside with your packed lunch full of local goodies. You’ll be in good company with an abundance of wombats, kangaroos, wallabies, possums and even Tasmanian devils who all call the island home. This evening, enjoy locally harvested scallops and oysters, or perhaps a succulent Cape Grim Scotch fillet from the state’s north west is more to your taste.

Today your adventure takes you to the magnificent Freycinet National Park where you may choose to hike the 90-minute round-trip up to the lookout to experience panoramic views of the world-famous Wineglass Bay. For those seeking a slightly slower pace, take a guided walk to the lookout at Cape Tourville that affords you spectacular views across the ocean and golden beaches hidden between rugged rocky outcrops. For lunch, you are in for a treat with a visit to a local vineyard where you’ll meet the makers. Indulge in a lunch platter as you try some of Tassie’s finest wines. This afternoon, we head further north, stopping at quaint fishing villages dotted along this beautiful coastline, arriving at our bespoke accommodation at the world-renowned Bay of Fires. Tonight, you’ll stay in stylish Bell Tents and feast on food created by a local chef who cooks with love and is passionate about quality Tasmanian produce, so you won’t be going hungry here! After dinner, immerse yourself in local stories whilst sipping wine around the open campfire before retiring for the evening.

From here you’ll leave the east coast and head west, stopping off at Pyengana Dairy Farm Gate to see the cheese makers at work. Take a tour of the property before enjoying a tasting of the local produce as well as a gourmet lunch platter. On route to Launceston, the capital of the north, you’ll stop at the Legerwood Carved Memorial Trees, 25 sculpted statues depicting local soldiers who lost their lives in World War One.
