Tasmania, the “Island of Inspiration” is an island of dramatic coastlines, quaint villages, convict-built heritage and magnificent food and wine.
Our tours include special inclusions like an awe-inspiring cruise on the Gordon River, viewing beautiful Macquarie Harbour and a ranger guided walk in Freycinet National Park. You'll explore Woolmers Estate and National Rose Garden, indulge in gourmet Tasmanian produce and tour the infamous Port Arthur Site.
No journey to the 'Apple Isle' would be complete without viewing Cradle Mountain. This remarkable rocky outcrop rises 1545 metres above Dove Lake, and is Tasmania’s most iconic scenic attraction. Enjoy shopping in Salamanca Markets which attracts bargain hunters on Saturdays, and the Constitution Dock area is lined with restaurants and bars celebrating the island’s quality produce.
Our luxury coaches will take you to all of these must-see sights, including meeting a Tasmanian Devil. Extensive commentary and local knowledge will help you to truly live the destination, not just travel through it.
