Holiday type



Self-drive Tasmania

Self-drive Tasmania with a bespoke holiday that will tick off all the best sights on this remarkable island. Tasmania is the place to explore your wild side, whether you’re cruising the Gordon River in the Wilderness World Heritage Area or exploring the world's largest tract of temperate rainforest. For a captivating encounter with Tasmanian devil, wombat and eastern grey kangaroo you’ll visit the Trowunna Wildlife Sanctuary. Things get a little more civilised in the beautiful Tamar Valley region’s wineries and when you end your Tasmanian holiday in a luxury cabin at Freycinet Lodge, overlooking the dazzling waters of Oyster Bay.


After collecting your rental car and checking into the Macq 01 Hotel, you’ll begin your adventure in the vibrant capital of Hobart. In recent years Hobart has gained quite a reputation for gastronomy. To whet your appetite, we recommend discovering the charming cafes of bohemian Elizabeth Street or indulging in a fresh feast of oysters.


Discover the rugged wilderness of Tasmania's west coast as you drive through the rich forests of Franklin Lower Gordon Wild Rivers National Park. Queenstown’s copper mines and a Gordon River cruise to Heritage Landing await you. You’ll explore the largest surviving tract of temperate rainforest on Earth before continuing to Sarah Island, a fascinating historic site notorious for its former penal colony.

Cradle Mountain

As you edge northeast the ancient rainforest and mountainous heaths of Lake St Clair National Park come gloriously into view. As does Tasmania's most famous landmark: Cradle Mountain. Over the next two days you can discover this World Heritage Site's wineries, walks and wilderness. Leisurely lakeside strolls await, while you can push your limits on longer forest treks. You'll stay overnight at Peppers Cradle Mountain Lodge, a homely retreat with a highly acclaimed alpine spa.


Travel east through the beautiful Meander Valley, towards the city of Launceston. Don’t miss the underground marvels of the Marakoopa Cave, before sampling some bush tucker. Afterwards, at the Trowunna Wildlife Park you can walk with eastern grey kangaroo, cuddle a wombat and see Tasmanian Devil being fed.


Round up your Tasmanian trip in the natural splendours of Freycinet National Park. Rest up at the deluxe Freycinet Lodge, which overlooks the clear waters of Oyster Bay. The stunning scenery is the region’s main attraction and best explored on bush walks, quad bike trails, scenic flights and sea kayak tours. With two days here, you’ll have plenty of time to relax on beautiful beaches and see the vivid orange boulders of the Bay of Fires.


After a hearty farewell breakfast to send you on your way, enjoy a scenic drive back to Hobart. Here you’ll catch a flight back to the Australian mainland.
