Located in Tasman Peninsular, The Port Arthur Historic Site is amongst the best-preserved convict settlements in Australia and among the most significant convict era sites in the world. Take a guided tour of more than 30 historic buildings and ruins: the penitentiary, church, watch tower, the Dockyard and the Separate Prison and a museum. While on the way, we will explore the natural wonders of Tasman Peninsular such as the Tessellated Pavement, Tasman Arch, Blowhole, Devils Kitchen, and the Remarkable Cave.
Wineglass Bay, 200 kilometres from Hobart, is one of the top ten beaches by the US magazine Outside in 1999. The tour of East Coast and Freycinet National Park contains unforgettable scenic spots, including Cape Tourville, Honeymoon Bay, Coles Bay. Take a short, fairly steep climb to the saddle between Mt Amos and Mt Mayson, from where, a side-track leads to a new lookout, with one of Tasmania’s most celebrated views over the beautiful white sands of Wineglass Bay. Halfway a visit to Kate Farm can be organized at your own expense to taste and buy unique ice cream and jams.
We will explore the World Heritage Cradle Mountain National Park. Cradle Mountain, a must see and the start of the 65-kilometre (40-mile) Overland Track, is the northern end of the 161,000-hectare Cradle Mountain-Lake St Clair National Park. You can enjoy the pure air with a stunning walk around Dove Lake or challenge yourself with unguided hike to view Cradle Mountain. On the way back, you will be delighted at the enterprising town of Sheffield, where history and art merge to create an entire town of murals. It would be another bonus to visit and taste delicious cheese in Elizabeth. Then our friendly tour guide will drop you off at your hotel.
