Ultimate Tasmania
     16 Day Tour      Hobart > Hobart

A cornucopia of riches
A great passion for nature, history, culture and food defines this little
island. With some of the most magnificent untouched wilderness in the
world, a rich convict legacy, world-class galleries and artisan produce,
Tasmania is a treat for the senses, no matter what your appetite.
From the salty dockside Salamanca Point to the extraordinary art housed
in MONA, you’ll fall in love with Hobart before heading south to the World
Heritage-listed convict enclave of Port Arthur. History and art combine with
a visit to the incredible ‘Wall in the Wilderness’, before you go deep into
the wilderness with visits to the Franklin-Gordon Wild Rivers and Cradle
Mountain-Lake St Clair National Parks.
Explore many of the quaint little towns scattered across the island, sampling
the finest in Tassie hospitality before heading back to the wilds of Freycinet
National Park. The extraordinary Wineglass Bay will capture your imagination
before you make your way back to lovely Hobart.
