Our 5 day Tasmania tour gives you things that delight your five senses: touch, taste, hear, see and smell. During the journey, you’ll experience the following: 

– Opportunity to eat at boutique restaurants featuring unique Tasmanian dishes.

– A variety of tasty fresh produce (eg. cheese, chocolate, fruits, jams, oysters, cider and possibly abalone).

– Wines from our award winning vineyards.

– The best scenic views in Tasmania (Cradle Mountain, Bay of Fires, Wineglass Bay, Mt Wellington).

– Interaction with our animals. You can touch and feed kangaroos, see Tasmanian devils, wombats and more.

– World Heritage Area and our best National Parks (Cradle Mountain National Park, Freycinet National Park, Wellington Park).

– An introduction to Tasmania’s convict past.

– Extra tours during the evening if you want to experience more.

To get the best experience in Tasmania you need to spend at least one night away from the city. The nature is incredible in Tasmania and is one of the major reasons why Lonely Planet listed Tasmania in the World’s Top 10 places to visit for 2013. Our tour has overnight stops in Cradle Mountain and Bicheno.
