1 Welcome to Hobart
Embark on an afternoon sightseeing tour of Hobart. Your orientation takes in historic Battery Point, Salamanca Place, the extensive Botanic Gardens, Constitution Dock, and Mt. Nelson, which affords panoramic views over the city. Join your Travel Director and fellow travellers this evening for a Welcome Reception and dinner. (D) Stay: Wrest Point
2 Hobart – Strahan
This morning you’ll head west to magnificent Mt. Field National Park and take a walk through lush rainforest to the tiered falls of picturesque Russell Falls. Then take the scenic drive up to iconic Lake St. Clair, the deepest freshwater lake in Australia, and continue through the rainforest to your final destination for the day, the coastal town of Strahan. (B/D) Stay: Strahan Village
3 Strahan – Cradle Mountain
Enjoy a lunch cruise on the spectacular Gordon River. Be awestruck by the dark tannin stained waters: they reflect the surrounding untouched wilderness. Stop at Sarah Island for an insight into Tasmania’s lesser-known convict history, and see Hells Gates, the treacherous entrance to the harbour. (B/L/D) Stay: Cradle Mountain Hotel
4 Cradle Mountain – Smithton
This morning, marvel at the inspiring beauty of Cradle Mountain National Park. Join your Travel Director for a walk by Dove Lake, where you may spot Bennetts wallabies, echidnas and pademelons grazing along the way. Travel on through rolling green hills to Table Cape for spectacular views of Bass Strait. Picturesque Stanley is in your sights as you head west. Enjoy views of the sheer-sided Stanley bluff known as ‘The Nut’ and take some time to explore. Your final destination today is Smithton. (B/D) Stay: Tall Timbers
5 Smithton – Launceston
Today, enjoy a tour with a local guide of the magnificent Tarkine Wilderness region. One of Australia’s largest temperate rainforests, it boasts vast stands of myrtle, leatherwood and pine trees. En route to Launceston you’ll visit the award-winning Ashgrove Tasmanian Farm to learn about its dairy production methods and taste some samples. (B)
6 Farewell from Launceston
This morning travel through the rolling hills of the Tamar Valley to the Beaconsfield Mine and Heritage Centre. Your local expert will bring to life the mine’s extraordinary past, including the dramatic events of the 2006 rock fall and mine rescue. Drive on to Launceston, where your journey concludes this afternoon. (B)

- NSW, Australia Sep 2018 1 Helpful Vote View Photo

This was our second trip with Global Journeys and AAT Kings. Booking was easy. The trip was fantastic and we travelled on a brand new coach. Both the driver and tour coordinator were friendly and helpful. Carolyn shared her knowledge about the area we travelled and you could tell she just loved her job. Hotel accommodation was far beyond our expectations especially Tall Timbers Smithton. Staff were always friendly and helpful as were all tour guides. All inclusions were great as were the optional...read more

“Tassy West Coast”
- Victoria, Oakleigh Apr 2017

Hobart to Launceston on the AAT King coach. The organisation on the coach was great as this was our first time on this type of holiday. Especially like the rotating seat allocation. The west coast of Tassy was well worth a visit, especially the Gordon River cruise. Accommodation varied but clean and comfortable. The communication about arrangements and times was excellent. The tour broke up the day into achievable sitting and leaving the coach for sights etc except for a couple of 2 - 2.5 hour...read more

“Wonderful 6 day wilderness Tassie escape ”
- NSW, Australia Oct 2016

Beautiful stops on this 6 day trip to iconic places in Tassie. Very efficient helpful knowledgeable driver and tour director. Quite q full coach of 42 people more than what I expected but we managed. Only non positive was the last day optionals which had to be left out as it was in afternoon leaving little time for airport transfer. Loved Cradle mountain hotel where the a wallabies and joey came to greet us. Beautiful place and it snowed slightly. Great job overall. Will travel with AAT Kings...read more
