Your day at a glance
Today is action packed and fast paced, so we make an early start from Hobart and drive directly to the stunning Tasman Peninsula. This area has amazing history, fascinating stories and amazing scenery. It is also home to Australia’s highest sea cliffs. 

We enjoy the panoramic views of the area from Pirates Bay Lookout which provides a great vantage here of the surrounding area.  Passing through Eaglehawk Neck and “The Dogline” our Tour Guides will share with you all the great stories of the area. 

Then we begin one of Tasmania’s “Great Short Walks”.  This is a short but spectacular  track along the Waterfall Bay Clifftop.  The walk is around 45 minutes, undulating and categorised as an easy walk.  The track concludes at the remarkable rock formations of Tasman Arch and Devil’s Kitchen.

Next stop is the Tasmanian Devil Unzoo.  We arrive here for all the action of a Tasmanian Devil Feeding. Watch the snarling, fighting and bone crushing in a spectacle of devilish behaviour during the feeding.  Hand feed the wallabies and walk amongst the local fauna and flora in the charming “Unzoo” setting.

Continuing our journey, we arrive at Port Arthur Historic Site.  As we enter the Port Arthur Historic Site, there is a wealth of information and history to take in and to explore.  Your entry includes a complimentary Harbour Cruise around the Isle of the Dead and a guided walking tour with one of the Site’s expert guides. 

Discover the grim and violent history of the early Australian Penal system and get a sense of the isolation experienced by the convicts in this “inescapable prison”.   With around 2.5 hours here, you have time to walk amongst the main penitentiary; see the solitary confinement cells and many more buildings in this World Heritage open air museum.

On our return to Hobart, we make a stop at Federation Chocolate Factory, a small family run boutique chocolate stop, with a variety of chocolate flavours to sample.  Further along we arrive in the late afternoon into historic Richmond Village.  Meander the streets, stop for a coffee, visit the Lolly Shop and walk across Australia’s oldest bridge still in use – a convict built sand-stone bridge, reported to be haunted!

Finally, before we re-enter Hobart we stop for a fabulous view across Hobart from a local lookout.  A picturesque way to return to the city.
