Description

Enjoy this incredible two day experience visiting two of Tasmania's most iconic destinations. Which location you visit first will be dependent on the conditions, but your itinerary will include the following: Bruny Island: Once on Bruny Island, our first stop is Get Shucked Oyster Bar, where you have the chance to purchase Tasmania's famous Oysters. We then travel to the Neck Lookout to capture the iconic Bruny Island image from atop the 360-degree lookout. From there, enjoy views of the Tasman Sea, Tasman peninsula, North and South Bruny Island, and Mt. Wellington. After that we head to Adventure Bay for a stroll along the beach. Up next is the Mavista Rainforest Walk. Step into this temperate rainforest and smell the clean crisp air as you take in mother nature. This 20-minute round-trip walk gives you an idea of the different environments this magnificent island has to offer. After an adventurous morning, it will be time to pull it back a gear as we head for lunch to either the Bruny Hotel, Café, or winery, (Lunch at own cost) there are options to suit all budgets and dietary requirements. After lunch, unwind and relax as we sample some award winning local produce. Berries, chocolate fudge, cheese, beverages and oysters are all possibilities (time pending and at own cost)! We then travel to the Cape Bruny Lighthouse to spend 30 minutes exploring the picturesque Cape Bruny, home to the second-oldest original tower in Australia. Finally we head back to the mainland and arrive back in Hobart at approximately 5:30PM. Port Arthur: On route to Port Arthur, stop at Eaglehawk Neck’s Pirate Bay lookout and the Dog Line monument to soak up the scenery and have a photo opportunity or two! The next stop will have the mouths of sweet tooth's watering as we visit the Tasmanian Chocolate Foundry. Following the chocolate factory, you will visit the beautiful Port Arthur Lavender Farm. Explore the unique handmade products made from Tasmanian Lavender and take a stroll around the scenic lavender trail. Up next is the Port Arthur Historic Site. Immerse yourself in the fascinating, rich and dark history of the best-preserved penal settlement in Australia. Admission is at own cost and entry fee will include a 35-minute guided walking tour and a 20-minute harbour cruise. If history is what you came for, enjoy the full 4 hours exploring the historic site. If you are up for one more experience, then you can hop back onboard the bus after 3 hours for a trip to the Remarkable Cave. Just a short 8-minute drive away, you will be greeted with the spectacular vista of Maingon Bay. At the lookout you can take in the exceptional views of Penguin Rocks and the bay. You can then descend down the 115 steps to view the Remarkable Cave from a viewing platform where you will be surrounded by ancient sandstone cliffs. We will then return back to the historic site to pick up the remaining passengers and then return to Hobart at 5:30pm.
