Full description
This action-packed day tour starts with an early morning hotel pickup in Hobart. Drive directly to the stunning Tasman Peninsula, home to Australia’s highest sea cliffs. Witness the spectacular scenery with panoramic views from Pirates Bay Lookout. Passing through the isthmus of Eaglehawk Neck and the “dog line,” your tour guides will share with you the fascinating history and stories of the area. Next, begin one of Tasmania’s “Great Short Walks.” Follow a 2-km track along the Waterfall Bay cliff top. This undulating walk takes around 45–60 minutes and is categorized as an easy walk. The track concludes at the remarkable rock formations of Tasman Arch and Devil’s Kitchen. The next stop is the Tasmanian Devil Unzoo. Check out the action of a Tasmanian devil feeding — watch the snarling, fighting, and bone-crushing in a spectacle of devilish behavior. Hand feed the wallabies and walk among the local fauna and flora in the charming “unzoo” setting. Continuing your journey, arrive at the Port Arthur Historic Site. Spend 2.5 hours exploring this former convict settlement, taking in the wealth of information and history of the early Australian penal system. Your entry includes a harbor cruise around the Isle of the Dead and a guided walking tour. Before returning to Hobart, enjoy a stop at Richmond Historical village. In the late afternoon, arrive in historic Richmond Village. Meander the streets, stop for a coffee, and walk across Australia’s oldest bridge still in use today. Finally, check out a fabulous view of Hobart from a local lookout — a picturesque way to return to the city. You’ll be dropped off at your Hobart accommodation around 6:00 PM.

A spectacular full day tour that will surpass your expectations. Our guide Nick was knowledgeable and friendly making everyone feel welcome and making the day easy. You'll love the Devil Unzoo getting up close to these beautiful animals, Port Arthur will transport you through time and the breathtaking views of the rugged coast as you walk along the cliff tops will have you clicking photos like an excited 5 year old. I highly recommend this tour and would gladly take it next time I'm in Tasmania.

Our bus driver,Trevor, was a wealth of knowledge regarding Tassie. Whilst the weather was unfortunately abysmal the experience was well worthwhile.
