Itinerary

Welcome to Hobart! Enjoy a leisurely start to your tour by having a wander around the picturesque Constitution Dock at your doorstep or take a stroll along the Derwent River before meeting your Travel Director and fellow travellers this afternoon for a Welcome Reception followed by delicious meal at Tasman Restaurant. (D) Stay: Hotel Grand Chancellor Hobart (2 nights)

Wake up today to the sights, sounds, flavours, colour and action of Salamanca Market. Explore the market stalls, wander through the historic sandstone warehouses discovering innovative Tasmanian arts and crafts, and delight in the taste and aroma of freshly baked goods and local produce, meeting the friendly people who make or grow what they sell. Take a moment to sit back and relax at one of Salamanca's cafes and watch the world pass you by with cooling ale or locally produced cider. This afternoon it's all aboard for a city sights tour of Tassie's capital. Stroll through the Botanical Gardens visit historic Battery Point, and Cascade Brewery before driving up to Mt. Nelson for panoramic views over the city. (B)

Journey west to magnificent Mt. Field National Park to see picturesque Russell Falls. Breath in the fresh moist air when you join your Travel Director for a stroll to the tiered falls through luscious green rainforest. Later take the winding journey to picturesque Lake St. Clair, Australia’s deepest lake.  Continuing along the rainforest bordered road of World Heritage protected Franklin-Gordon Wild Rivers National Park, you’ll pass through the moonscape of the mining town of Queenstown before your final stop today at the seaside township of Strahan. Enjoy views of magnificent Macquarie Harbour, seven times the size of Sydney Harbour, from your hotel perched on the hillside. (B/D) Stay: Strahan Village

A highlight today is your cruise on the Gordon River. Be awestruck by the dark waters, stained amber by Button-grass tannins, which reflect the untouched wilderness. Stop at Sarah Island for an insight into a relic of Tasmania's convict history, and see Hells Gates, the notoriously treacherous entrance to the harbour. This afternoon pass through the mining towns of Rosebery and Tullah as you travel to your hotel on the boundary of sensational Cradle Mountain National Park. (B/L/D) Stay: Cradle Mountain Hotel (2 nights)

This morning you'll marvel at the inspiring beauty of Cradle Mountain National Park. Join your Travel Director for a visit to the Waldheim Chalet for insight into the early history of the Cradle Mountain area. Later, take a guided walk by Dove Lake. You may spot Bennett's wallabies, echidnas and pademelons grazing along the way. (B/D)

After breakfast, take a walk with a local expert through the Hellyers Road Whisky Distillery in Burnie. You’ll then make your way east to Mount Gnomon Farm hidden high in the hills overlooking the picturesque township of Penguin. Here you will enjoy a Be My Guest lunch by host and passionate farmer, Guy Robertson who will show you around his garden and property. Continue to quirky Sheffield, the ‘Town of Murals’, before travelling through the Meander Valley to Launceston. (B/L) Stay: Hotel Grand Chancellor Launceston (2 nights)

Emerge yourself in Launceston's magnificent Cataract Gorge before taking a scenic drive through rolling hills for a delicious lunch and wine-tasting at Josef Chromy Wines. After lunch you may like to take an optional cruise on the beautiful Tamar River. This afternoon your holiday comes to an end, or why not stay an extra night and enjoy some of our other optional experiences in and around Launceston? (B/L)

Great tour of Tassie West Coast 0 , NSW, Australia, Mar 2022
As always Global Journeys were great to work with when deciding and booking our AAT Kings Tassies Parks and Nature tour. Thanks Georgie for your professionalism. Our tour was well run with a great guide (Dave) and excellent driver (Tom). Felt very safe throughout the tour. Tour was well placed. Boat cruise on the Gordon River and Sarah Island was excellent. ...read more Accommodation was good and most hotel staff were friendly and helpful. Included meals were good. Added bonus of 2 drink vouchers when having included dinners was also a nice inclusion. One hotel needs to update their staff on the conditions of use of these vouchers. I think AAT kings were going to address the issue as well.

Included stops were good. The only disappointment was the Wall in the Wilderness being deleted from our itinerary. As we stayed extra nights in Launceston after the tour we were able to travel there ourselves. AAT Kings need to resolve the issues that have prevented them visiting as other tour operators include it in their itineraries. Will happily use Global Journeys for future holidays and also AAT Kings.
A great Tasmanian holiday 0 , Hong Kong, Jan 2020
Everything was good, selection of hotel, meals, tour leader, driver, the coach, the pace, the excursions. We felt looked after. I especially enjoyed the river cruise at Strahan, the Cradle Mountain experience, and the winery lunch and wine tasting at Launceston - all three are included activities.
Tassie's Parks & Nature 2 , ACT, Australia, Mar 2018
I like small group travel and somehow that got lost in my booking process. There were 44 of us, Far too many, although it was a very good prompt group, except for one couple - there's always one! So, no, I wouldn't book with this company again.

After lots of travel both here and overseas where I've experienced great guides, this one was not one of ...read more those; she needs a lot of coaching on how to use a microphone, her descriptions and advice re things to see and do in spare time were rambling and we learnt a lot about her family - not what I want to learn when travelling in a new area.
I would definitely go on an AAT Kings tour again 0 , Australia, Jan 2014
Enjoyed the tour operators' experience in showing us features/areas I would not have done on my own. A friendly, mixed group of people on our tour, you could dine with someone every meal, or choose to have free time in your room. Most accommodation was very good, all were clean but the meals at Strahan and Cradle Mountain were standouts. The walk along ...read more the lake at Cradle Mountain was fabulous and would have preferred more time walking around this natural beauty. I would definitely go on an AAT Kings tour again, this time Western Australia, money permitting.
Enjoyed our tour although itinerary was disrupted by fires 0 , Australia, Jan 2013
Susy and I enjoyed our West Coast Tasmanian tour although we couldn't go to some of the places affected by the fires (e.g Russell Falls). The tour director, the driver as well as our fellow passengers were excellent. Thanks a lot!
Exceptional tour 1 , Australia, Jan 2013
I'm completing this survey on behalf of my dad (Theo Kurrer). He is a South African resident & has since returned home (he is not great with technology, so asked me to complete this for him). He loved the tour - the tour guide, coach, accommodation, fellow tour participants, food and activities were all exceptional.
