Our Exciting Five Day Tour


Day 1 – Hobart to Cradle Mountain

A real welcome to Tasmania day – It’s a lot different from what most people think. Leave Hobart and travel through the midlands where many historic convict towns are located amongst vast farming areas. Stopping for a famous curried Scallop pie (seafood) and delicious local honey, you will be ready to experience the Cradle Mountain National Park which lies on the edge of the World Heritage Listed Area. In the evening you can have an extra tour to see Tasmanian Devils.
