HIGHLIGHTS Download trip notes
  • Discover Tasmania’s Cradle Coast, from the ancient landscapes of Rocky Cape National Park to the stunning stretch of ocean at the Edge of the World, with plenty of stops along the famed tasting trail.
  • Explore the country’s oldest temperate rainforest with a visit to the Tarkine, home to unique species that have evolved over hundreds of millions of years – a living connection to the Gondwana supercontinent.
  • Learn about the rich Aboriginal heritage and spiritual connections of Tasmania’s northern landmarks and national parklands.
  • See the highlights of the picturesque Tasman Peninsula, such as the rocky formations of Tasman Arch and Devil’s Kitchen, the secluded Crescent Bay and the tragically historic Port Arthur.
Starting in Launceston and ending in Hobart, the "Tasmanian Explorer" tour is a guided explorer trip that takes 9 days. You will travel through Bruny Island, Tarkine Region, Hobart and 5 other destinations in Australia. "Tasmanian Explorer" is a small group tour which includes accommodation in hotels, transport, meals and others.

Tasmania may be just across the ditch from mainland Australia, but when it comes to standout scenery, unique wildlife and intriguing history, this island is a world away. This 9-day adventure will weave you through must-sees and lesser-known treasures, with a local leader to provide expert knowledge at every step. Set off from the historic city of Launceston, hike the coastal trails of Narawntapu and Rocky Cape national parks and explore the prehistoric Tarkine Rainforest. Hit the markets in Hobart, sample the homegrown flavours of Bruny Island, learn about the region’s colonial past and explore a rugged, wild coastline shaped over the centuries by the southern seas.

Review for another Intrepid Travel tour
“My wife and I are over 75 years old, but fit. We hiked and climbed Mayan pyramids, swam and trekked through an underground cave, snorkeled and dove reefs and shopped and dined in local markets. We took some extra trips, but passed on those, such as scaling an active volcano, that were not our cup of tea. By car, van, bus, boat, bike and foot, the adventure was always interesting. The tour guide handled all arrangements and ironed out the occasional glitch. However, he would arrange for local guides who had regional knowledge and views. We met many typical residents of three countries and interacted with them on a close and personal level.”

  • This trip is suitable for anyone with a reasonable level of fitness. Please note that it includes several guided walks, allowing you to get among nature. Most are relatively short and easy although there are some more challenging options. However, joining a walk is always up to you. Please bring sturdy, comfortable walking shoes and comfortable clothing.
