Description

Travel from Hobart to the Tasman Peninsula, where the might of the Southern Ocean has carved spectacular caves and arches into solid rock. Explore the coastline on a scenic tour, discover the fascinating Tasmanian Devil Unzoo, and admire Port Arthur on a boat trip. Begin your journey from Hobart, then spend the morning walking along 300-meter-high clifftops, pausing at majestic lookouts to watch giant waves crash against dolerite spires. Visit Pirates Bay, Waterfall Bay, Tasman Arch, and the famous Devil’s Kitchen, ticking all the best views off the list. Enjoy a trip to the Tasmanian Devil Unzoo to get up close and personal with these iconic critters in a feeding frenzy. Admire the feisty creatures with one of the most powerful bites in the animal kingdom. Seize the chance to feed wallabies by hand, attend a Birds of the Bush presentation, and learn about local wildlife from the Unzoo’s staff, before heading off to explore the Port Arthur Historic Site. Arrive in Port Arthur and gaze at the impeccably preserved ruins offering a chilling glimpse of life as a Tasmanian convict. Spend four hours exploring this World Heritage open-air museum, including a relaxing harbor cruise around the Isle of the Dead and fascinating site talks. Finally, head over to Richmond, a historic village filled with quaint stone buildings, ancient lolly shops, and Australia’s oldest bridge. Discover this sandstone beauty built by convicts and thought to be haunted before driving back to Hobart.
