Classic Tasmania – 6 Days

Overview – Classic Tasmania

Tasmania has a wealth of attractions that belies its tiny size. Its pocket-sized capital, Hobart, is packed with exquisitely preserved 19th century buildings and wonderful museums. Additionally, this charming city is gateway to the evocative former penal settlement of Port Arthur, the island’s top tourist attraction. This short Classic Tasmania self-drive sample itinerary also takes in the Freycinet Peninsula, the crown jewel of Tasmania’s east coast – a rugged wilderness flanked by dazzling white sand beaches and iridescent turquoise waters.

This Classic Tasmania itinerary is simply an example illustrating how we can tailor the perfect experience to suit your travelling style, budget and interests.
