Day 1. Welcome to Tasmania
Upon arrival at Hobart Airport, meet your driver and transfer to your hotel in the city.

The capital of the state of Tasmania is a small but vibrant multicultural city. Explore the city by foot or visit nearby Mount Wellington, which gives you the best view over the entire city.

Day 2. Stunning scenery, culture and a cruise

Today, visit MONA (Museum of Old and New Art). This is no ordinary museum and well worth visiting, even if you are not an art fan. The building and its gardens are a work of art in themselves.
This is the largest private museum in Australia and is Hobart’s most-visited destination. 

Enjoy lunch at one of MONA’s restaurants. You can also try MONA’s own beer or wine, as there is a vineyard on site. 
Return transport by ferry from the Hobart waterfront.
Note. The museum is not open every day, so we will plan the program to suit your travel dates.

Day 3. Tasmanian Devils

Meet Tasmanian devils, kangaroos, koalas and other native wildlife.
A day trip to the Bonorong Wildlife Sanctuary, where you can meet the animals at close range if you wish (advance booking required, options at the time of booking).

Some Tasmanian animals are rare and endangered. The main mission of the Bonorong Wildlife Zoo is to help and care for endangered animals. By visiting here, you are also supporting the important work of the wildlife park.
Transportation and admission are included in the package. 

Day 4. Port Arthur

Day trip to the historic UNESCO world heritage site of Port Arthur.
Australian colonial history began with prisoners sent from England to Australia, and Port Arthur is one of those destinations.

After the prisoner had served his/her sentence, they were released and remained living in the area. There was enough work for everyone depending on their skills. Those with the most skills got involved in building ships. Thus the new colony grew, and small settlements grew into villages and towns.
Port Arthur also has a notorious history, as the most dangerous criminals carried out their sentences in complete isolation from others. It is said that they still haunt the site today. Go check it out.
Bus transfers from Hobart and admission tickets are included in the package.
The entrance ticket also includes:
•    Access to the Port Arthur Gallery, which contains interactive exhibitions and performances that tell the story of the historic area of Port Arthur and its inhabitants
•    40-minute guided introduction tour in English
•    25-minute harbour cruise
•    Access to over 30 historic buildings, ruins, restored houses, traditional gardens and walking trails.

Day 5. Travel to Launceston

Spend a free morning in Hobart.
In the afternoon, meet your driver and transfer to Launceston in northern Tasmania. The drive takes about 2 to 2.5 hours through the beautiful Tasmanian countryside. 
Explore Launceston’s historic city at your own pace.

Day 6. Tasmanian wines

Tasmania is famous for its many wines and there are several vineyards just outside Launceston.
Join with a small group and visit some of the best cellars in the area. 
Wine tastings and lunch are included in the package.

Day 7. Launceston

A day for your leisure in Launceston.
If you are interested in art, I recommend a visit to the Queen Victoria Museum and Art Gallery, Australia’s largest regional museum. The museum is located in two places: the Royal Park Art Gallery, founded in 1891, and the 1870s railway workshop in Inveresk.

For beer lovers, I recommend a visit to Boag’s Brewery, where you can join on a tour and see all the stages of brewing if you wish. And, of course you get to taste James Boag’s award-winning beers. 

A short walk from the centre you will find the Cataract Gorge.
The gorge is a rare natural rock formation with walking trails, a swimming pool, the world’s longest single-person chair lift, a café-restaurant, a suspension bridge and stunning panoramic views.

If you are in Launceston on Saturday, visit the Harvest Market. At the market you will find local farmers from whom you can directly buy fresh fruit, vegetables,  meat and dairy products.

Day 8. Where to next?

Final morning at Launceston and your next journey awaits. 

Breakfast and airport transfers are included in your package. Ask about additional flights or accommodation options at your next destination.
