1 Welcome to Hobart
Your Tasmanian holiday begins with an afternoon tour of Hobart. You'll see historic Battery Point, Salamanca Place, the Botanic Gardens, Constitution Dock, the destination of yachts participating in the Sydney to Hobart race each year, and Mt. Nelson, which affords panoramic views over Australia's southernmost city. Enjoy the company of your Travel Director and fellow travellers this evening at a Welcome Reception and dinner. (D) Stay: Wrest Point
2 Hobart - Strahan
This morning you'll head west to New Norfolk and magnificent Mt. Field National Park and take a walk through lush rainforest to the many tiered cascade of picturesque Russell Falls. Then enjoy the scenic drive to iconic Lake St. Clair, the deepest freshwater lake in Australia, and continue through the rainforest to the coastal town of Strahan. Nestled on the shores of massive Macquarie Harbour, Strahan is the gateway to the World Heritage listed Franklin-Gordon Wild Rivers National Park. (B/D) Stay: Strahan Village
3 Strahan - Cradle Mountain
Today's highlight is a lunch cruise on the Gordon River. You'll be awestruck by the beauty of the dark waters: stained amber by buttongrass tannins, they reflect the untouched wilderness that surrounds them. Stop at Sarah Island for an insight into a relic of Tasmania's lesser-known convict history, the Macquarie Harbour Penal Settlement. See Hells Gates, the treacherous entrance to the harbour, and Heritage Landing, site of a 2,000-year-old Huon Pine. Travel through the mining towns of Rosebery and Tullah on your way to your hotel. (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 destination today is Smithton. (B/D) Stay: Tall Timbers
5 Smithton - Launceston
Travel through the picturesque coastal townships of Burnie, Penguin and Ulverstone before heading inland to Sheffield, home to over 60 murals depicting the area's rich history. You'll learn about dairy production methods and indulge in a cheese tasting at the award-winning Ashgrove Tasmanian Farm on your way to Launceston, Tasmania's ‘northern capital'. (B) Stay: Best Western Plus Launceston
6 Farewell from Launceston
This morning, visit the unique natural formation of the Cataract Gorge, home to the longest single-span chairlift in the world, followed by an orientation tour of the city. Say farewell to your new-found friends as your exploration of Tasmania's wilderness comes to an end at midday. (B)

6 Day Tassie's Wilderness Icons reviews from past clients of Global Journeys.

“6 Day Tasmania Tour”
- Hong Kong Dec 2018 1 Helpful Vote

I had booked AAT Kings' Tasmania tour (6 day tour from 29 Dec 18 to 3 Jan 19) through Jemma of Global Journeys. I was impressed by Jemma's efficiency and professionalism.
My husband and I had an enjoyable holiday in Tasmania, however, if AAT Kings could make more of an effort on the following items, it would enhance and sustain its brand and image.
1) Ensure accuracy of its documents prior to being sent to its customers (I needed to...read more

“Tassie's Wilderness Icons”
- 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
