See the remarkable south and all that nature has to show you. Not to mention the acclaimed Great Ocean Road.
And while it might get cold at certain times of the year, trust us when we say it's well worth it. This is an amazing and picturesque part of the country.
From the docks at Melbourne Port we join the overnight ferry and cross the Bass Strait to Tasmania. Arriving in Devonport in the early hours gives us a full day of touring before settling in Launceston on our first night. The next day takes us to the north east coast through St Helens and south to Bicheno to our accommodation for two nights. See penguins come in to roost on the beach at night.
From there we can access Coles Bay and the Freycinet Peninsula. There’s so much here to do you’ll need 2 days to fit it all in. The following day we arrive at Port Arthur for a comprehensive look at this historic site. Then it’s on to Hobart for 3 nights to visit the Salamanca Markets, the controversial MONA Museum, Mount Wellington and Bruny Island. Then we take off for the rugged west coast via Queenstown to Strahan for 2 nights visiting the Macquarie Harbour Historic Site and the magnificent wilderness of a Gordon River cruise. Next it’s off to the dramatic Cradle Mountain and beautiful Dove Lake. There’s plenty of walking here if you’re feeling up to it.
The next day we’re off to Historic Stanley before heading back to Devonport for the overnight Ferry crossing back to Melbourne. With an early disembarkation we have all day to slowly make our way along the very scenic Great Ocean Road to Port Campbell. It’s here we’ll turn around and head back on the same road, only this time we’ll do it for the bends that are every motorcycle riders dream.
The best time to travel is from November to March as it can get very cold in Tasmania from April to October.
