Mona, the Museum of Old and New Art, is the largest privately funded museum in Australia.
Internationally renowned, it is currently proclaimed as Tasmania’s premier tourist attraction. Lonely Planet listed Hobart as number seven of the top ten cities around the world to visit in 2013, with Mona as the main drawcard.
And of course there is Salamanca Place and the magnificent backdrop of Mount Wellington. Lunch is at your own expense.
Mona is not open Tuesdays and Salamanca Place hosts the famous Salamanca Market on Saturdays which may impact on time spent at other attractions.

Let your eyes follow the perfect curve where white sand meets turquoise waters, and then you will know why Wineglass Bay in the Freycinet National Park is consistently rated amongst the top ten beaches in the world. The 45-minute uphill walk (good level of fitness required) rewards you with breathtaking views over the beach below.
Also while you are on the Freycinet Peninsula you will experience the white east coast sand at Friendly Beaches. Scoop it up in your hand to see the clean fluffy white sand that sparkles with minute crystals. Or sift through the deposits of small shells that feature periwinkles, clams, hermit crabs, limpets and mussels. We also visit Cape Tourville for commanding views of the coastal cliffs, as well as an amazing vista of where sky meets ocean on the horizon. As we leave the Peninsula we also stop at the Freycinet Marine Farm for a chance to purchase fresh seafood, a real highlight of the tour.
Departs Wednesday at 0845, returns 1800.


The Tamar Valley is one of Australia’s premier cool climate wine regions.
With more than 20 cellar doors within a short drive from Launceston it is understandable to see why a Tamar Valley Wine Tour is a favourite pastime for visitors to the state. Chardonnay, Riesling, Sauvignon Blanc, Pinot Gris, Rose, Cabernet Merlot and Pinot Noir are all grown and masterfully fermented into award winning wines. And not to forget our Sparkling Wine which has been considered as being second only to Champagne itself. The tour starts with berry and fruit liqueurs, before venturing to the more classic wine varieties. To compliment your tastings enjoy a cheese platter, and then for lunch a ‘game plate’ or a ‘tastings plate’.

The penguins found in Tasmania are the smallest of the penguin species, the noisiest, and also the only penguins with blue and white feathers (all others are black and white). Because of this they have several names, the Little Penguin, the Blue Penguin, but the most common name they are called is the Fairy Penguin.
Low Head Penguin Tours offer a unique nature experience to get up close and personal with our penguins as they return from the pristine waters of Bass Straight to nest in their burrows within the Low Head Coastal Reserve. This Reserve has the largest penguin rookery in Tasmania, and we have penguins returning every night throughout the year. Watch them swim to the surface, stand up and preen themselves before waddling up the beach. The penguin viewing is fully guided and takes approximately one hour, and including transfers to/from Launceston you need to allow 3.5 hours. You are welcome to bring a camera to capture your experience but no flash photography is permitted. As it gets cool at night please wear warm clothes and wear sturdy shoes (sports shoes are ok).
Departs Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, Friday and Saturday an hour before dusk


Because of its natural beauty, the Cradle Mountain National Park is one of the most popular tourist destinations in Tasmania. Invigorating mountain air, spectacular scenery, iconic visit. Listed as a World Heritage Area by the United Nations to protect its unique pristine wilderness, its global significance is for all to see and experience.
The viewing point for Cradle Mountain is from Dove Lake, and while you are there you have two hiking options. Firstly you may choose to walk around the lake which takes approximately two-and-a-half-hours at a brisk pace. Alternatively you may choose a selection of shorter 30-minute walks as well as a visit to Waldheim Chalet. Not everyone on the tour has to do the same option. The driver stays with the short walk passengers, and at a pre-determined time will return to collect the lake walkers. To finish off, time permitting, there is a waterfall/rainforest walk for everyone to enjoy.
On your way to Cradle see the topiary at Railton and the ‘Town of Murals’ Sheffield, and on your return enjoy a stop for cheese tastings at Ashgrove Cheese.
Departs Tuesday and Saturday at 0845, returns 1800.


Some are furry, some are cute, and some are shy and others are dangerous.
Some are colourful and then there are some that are mischievous. There are International species, Australian species, and of course native Tasmanian species.
Visit Tasmania Zoo which has over 80 varieties of birds, Tasmanian devils, penguins, quolls, wombats, echidnas, kangaroos, reptiles, monkeys, koalas, and much more. View the morning feedings of the penguins, followed by the devils feeding. Further north near the mouth of the Tamar River you will tour the Platypus House and then the Seahorse World. For those interested in our wildlife, this is the tour for you. Lunch at your own expense.

Tasmania’s east coast is fast becoming renown around the world for it’s fluffy pure white sands and crystal clear azure blue waters. Granite rocky outcrops covered with orange lichen jut out into the ocean to separate a large collection of hidden away beaches. No crowds, just relaxing peaceful locations that offer you a chance to reflect on how wonderful Mother Nature is.
This is the Bay Of Fires.
On your way to the Bay Of Fires visit Bridestowe Lavender Farm (Sep-May only), home of Bobbie Bear, for views of the lavender paddocks. Then onto the Myrtle Rainforest Walk on the Welborough Pass for a short walk through moss covered trees and ferns. At the Bay Of Fires we call into Binalong Bay for a beach experience, then Harbour Point to view the orange covered granite rocks, then a beach walk along the remote Taylor’s Beach. Fantastic. After your beach experience sample fresh oysters straight from the farm-lease 65, view fishing boats in St. Helens, and then head south to the St Mary’s Pass where we head inland to pass through the contrasting grazing lands of the Fingal Valley and Northern Midlands.
Departs Monday and Friday at 0845, returns 1800.


Tasmania is rich in colonial heritage.
This tour visits National Heritage Listed properties Clarendon Estate, Woolmers Estate and Entally House. These grand estates are filled with antiques and history. You can just feel the contrasting lifestyles of opulence compared to colonial hardships as you wander from room to room. And in the grounds you will find hidden treasures in the old stables and sheds. Plus, it is not all about history as you will get time to explore the spectacular gardens that are lovingly cared for, with each specific season showcasing colour and beauty of different plant and flower varieties.

Nestled in the Tamar Valley, Launceston is one of Australia’s oldest cities.
A streetscape of early colonial and Victorian buildings attest to this. Its major natural attraction only minutes from the CBD is the Cataract Gorge and First Basin which features the South Esk River flowing through cliff grounds and peaceful parklands. Trevallyn Dam and the City Park are also places of interest visited.
