Stay in Strahan.

Day 3 - Gordon River Cruise - Cradle Mountain

Day 4 - Cradle Mountain - Smithton

This morning it’s time to explore the inspiring beauty of Cradle Mountain National Park. We’ll take you to gorgeous Dove Lake for spectacular views of Cradle Mountain – make sure the camera’s charged, this is a scenic highlight, and the air – there’s none fresher! You may spot Bennetts wallabies, echidnas and pademelons grazing through the alpine heathlands. Picture rolling green hills and Friesian cows – this afternoon you’ll think you’re in a butter commercial as you make your way past Table Cape, home of tulips, for views of Bass Strait and coastline. Picturesque Stanley is in your sights as you head west with a view of ‘the Nut’ and a chance to explore. Your final destination is Smithton.

Meals: Breakfast, Dinner


Day 5 - Smithton - Launceston

First up you’ll experience a guided tour of the Tarkine Wilderness region, one of Australia’s largest unprotected temperate rainforests and contains vast forests of myrtle, leatherwood and pine trees. En route to Launceston you’ll visit the Ashgrove Cheese Factory to learn all about cheese making and taste some samples.
