Itinerary

Our journey begins this morning as we make tracks to the East Coast and the beautiful Bay of Fires.

Perhaps a swim (conditions permitting)

Enjoy Tasmania's most scenic coastal drive from St Helen's to Bicheno. This evening you can join a guided viewing of the Little Penguins (optional in season) as they return to their rookeries on the edges of this seaside village.

Spend the night at the Bicheno.

An early start means we are the first to the lookout, beating the crowds and the heat for that postcard photo of Wineglass Bay. Relax on the secluded beach of or choose the more challenging Mt Amos or Hazzards Beach walk for your mornings Freycinet experience.

This afternoon we take a break at the picturesque historical village of Ross. Sample the local Ross Bakery fare or check out the convict built bridge. Come face to face with the iconic Tassie Devil as we make a stop at Bonorong Wildlife Sanctuary to meet these now endangered native animals as well as some others unique to Tasmania. A short drive returns us to Hobart.
