Welcome to Launceston
This evening meet your Travel Director and fellow travellers at a Welcome Reception followed by dinner at your hotel.
Launceston – Freycinet
Visit the beautiful Bridestowe Lavender Estate this morning and treat yourself to its famous lavender ice cream. Later visit the unique Legerwood Carved Memorial Trees site. After your lunch at the seaside town of St Helens, follow the picturesque East Coast south to Freycinet National Park for your accommodation for the next two nights.
Freycinet National Park & Wineglass Bay
Start the day with a short drive through dry eucalypt forests to Cape Tourville for a walk that will allow you stunning views of brilliant blue water and golden beaches as far as the eye can see. Then, experience a four-hour lunch cruise along the coast of the stunning Freycinet Peninsula. This cruise will take you from the gentle shores of Coles Bay past towering pink granite cliffs to the famous Wineglass Bay, a flawless crescent of dazzling white sand.
Freycinet – Hobart
This morning you’ll journey west and down through the Midlands, stopping for morning tea in historic Ross, renowned for being both the finest nineteenth-century village in Australia, and for its Scallop Pies! Heading south, you’ll stop in picturesque Oatlands for a bite to eat before making your way back to Hobart where you’ll join in the AAT Kings Sustainability Programme that allows you to give back to the local community by helping volunteers pot native plants and count seeds at a local not for profit nursery. Later today, check into your hotel and enjoy an afternoon and evening at leisure.
Port Arthur
Explore Port Arthur Historic Site today. Cross Eaglehawk Neck to the Tasman Peninsula and enjoy a cruise around the Isle of the Dead and a fascinating guided walk of Port Arthur's infamous convict prison. See rugged sea cliffs from Pirate’s Bay Lookout and feast your eyes on the amazing vistas of Tasman’s Arch, Devil’s Kitchen and the Blowhole on the drive back to Hobart. This evening, celebrate your holiday with your fellow travellers at a Farewell Dinner in one of Hobart's popular restaurants.
Today is your day! Free to explore all that Australia’s most southern capital has to offer. So why not try one of our many Optional tours or speak to your Tour Director about recommendations. Most importantly, enjoy!

This morning after breakfast, say farewell to your new friends when your indulgent holiday comes to an end.
