LUXURY TRAVEL TASMANIA
Hobart, Cradle Mountain & Freycinet
The Tasmanian harbourside capital of Hobart combines heritage charms with modern pleasures; and is the gateway to a long list of natural treasures across the island-state. Steeped in history and framed by dramatic sea cliffs, the nearby Tasman Peninsula is home to historic Port Arthur and the spectacular Three Capes walking track.
Follow the coast east to take in some of the island state’s most scenic drives including Maria Island, the Freycinet Peninsula and the beautiful Bay of Fires. Enjoy fabulous fresh seafood, luxury lodgings and some of Tasmania’s most exhilarating hikes along the way.
Fringed by sandy beaches and lined with scenic bushwalks, Bruny Island offers a rich bounty of delicious local produce and wonderful native wildlife.
Launceston is the launch pad for foodie trails in the tasty Tamar Valley, famous for its delicate sparkling wines; and golfing getaways on the windswept Barnbougle coast and remote King Island, famous for their challenging links courses.
The wonderfully wild Cradle Mountain-Lake St Clair National Park provides opportunities to walk alongside wombats and dine with Tasmanian devils, hike dramatic untouched terrain and fly-fish in hidden mountain streams.

The adventure begins with a scenic wilderness flight from Hobart that sets the scene for the days ahead.

Wake up to a new view each morning. The days ahead are spent gazing up at the spectacular Breaksea Island sea caves or out from stunning mountain-top lookouts, wandering along the untracked sands of Stephens Bay Beach or hiking through ancient rainforests, cruising the Huon-pine lined bends of the Davey River or picnicking in pristine wilderness. Spot dolphins playing in the bow waves and chance a glimpse of the endangered orange-bellied parrot.
Your expert guides generously share their vast knowledge about the local wildlife, flora, history and more on daily walks and shore excursions, whilst back on-board the chef prepares delicious meals showcasing local delicacies enjoyed around a shared table.
