Welcome to Launceston
On arrival at Launceston Airport you’ll be transferred by private car to your hotel, where you’ll have the opportunity to relax and freshen up before meeting your Journey Director for drinks and canapés at a Welcome Reception. Stay: Peppers Silo Hotel Launceston
2
The wukalina walk
This is a two-night Aboriginal-owned and operated guided walk through the magnificent natural landscape of the Bay of Fires and Mt. William areas, the cultural homeland of the palawa people. The walk is a genuine cultural experience that will deepen your understanding of palawa (a Tasmanian Aboriginal ‘clan’) culture and community history as well as immerse you in the natural, rugged beauty of wukalina and larapuna. Spend one night in absolute comfort in bespoke palawainspired (domed) huts, and one night in the meticulously renovated Lighthouse Keeper’s Cottage at larapuna/Bay of Fires. You’ll be accompanied by palawa guides in the footsteps of their traditional people on the cultural homelands of wukalina and larapuna (8kms per day at an easy to moderate pace). Hear palawa creation stories and participate in cultural practices that have been passed down through hundreds of generations (L/D) Stay: bespoke accommodation, 2 nights

The wukalina walk
Your wukalina walk continues today through the magnificent natural landscape of the Bay of Fires and Mt. William areas. (L/D)
4
Bay of Fires – Freycinet
After breakfast, board your vehicle and follow the coast to Coles Bay and Freycinet National Park. The natural beauty of this region, which comprises a peninsula defined by Schouten Island and a granite mountain range known as The Hazards, is quite simply breathtaking. Trails lead up to a lookout for panoramic views over Wineglass Bay, and you’ll also see the secluded coves of Coles, Honeymoon and Sleepy Bays. Views from Cape Tourville Lighthouse stretch over the clear blue waters of the Tasman Sea. After two nights on the trail, check in early to your secluded waterfront accommodation to unwind and rest before enjoying a sumptuous dinner together. (L/D) Stay: Edge of the Bay Resort
5
Freycinet – Hobart
After a leisurely start this morning, continue to Hobart to the renowned Museum of Old and New Art (MONA) for an all inclusive ‘Art Meets Wine’ experience. Perched on the banks of the River Derwent, MONA is Australia’s largest privately owned gallery and museum. Showcasing the diverse collection of its Tasmanian owner David Walsh, the museum exhibits everything from ancient Egyptian funerary objects and modernist masterpieces to a machine that mimics the human digestive system. Begin your MONA experience by exploring the maze of subterranean galleries, then make your way to the on-site Source restaurant for a lunch of seasonal local produce and wine from the adjacent Moorilla Estate winery. A behind-the-scenes tour of the vineyard, the second-oldest in Tasmania, follows. You’ll be treated to a tasting of ten different Moorilla wines before taking the MONA ROMA ferry to Hobart’s Constitution Dock, where the legendary Sydney to Hobart yacht race concludes each year. From there it’s just a short walk to your accommodation, the 5-star MACq 01 Hotel. The evening is free for you to explore the historic, yet trendy CBD. Stay: MACq 01 Hotel, 2 nights
6
Bruny Island
Enjoy an unforgettable, award-winning cruise experience along Bruny Island’s rugged coastline. Take the ferry across the quiet d’Entrecasteaux Channel to the island, where a morning tea of freshly-baked muffins will be served at a beachside café in Adventure Bay before your cruise departs. Then board your vessel to skirt some of Australia’s highest sea-cliffs, enter deep sea-caves and join in the search for seals, dolphins, sea-birds and even migratory whales. Return to the coast for lunch, and arrive back at your Hobart hotel by sunset, with time to relax before a Celebration Dinner at the Old Wharf Restaurant to toast your journey (L/D)
7
Farewell from Hobart
Bid farewell to your newfound friends as your inspiring Tasmanian journey concludes. After breakfast, a private vehicle will transfer you to Hobart Airport for your onward flight.
