Pink granite mountains form the backdrop for secluded bays, pristine waters, white sandy beaches, local wildlife and walking trails. Walk as a group to the Wineglass Bay Lookout, a moderate 1.3km uphill walk of around 45 minutes, one of the Great Short Walks of Tasmania. Once at the top be rewarded with that world-famous breathtaking view of Wineglass Bay. After several hours at Freycinet National Park re-group ready to begin the trip to one of Australia’s oldest cities – Launceston. Finish the afternoon with a tasting from one of the island’s family-run whiskey makers.

It is the customer’s responsibility to check the country of departure and country of arrival’s COVID-19 restrictions. Our third party supplier partners (e.g. airlines, cruise lines, accommodation and touring operators etc) may also have additional restrictions. It is the customer’s responsibility to check that all travellers in your party also meet all requirements. The situation is fluid and as such country and state entry requirements, along with third party supplier requirements, are changing frequently. All travellers must comply with their final destination’s immigration and health requirements.
Health requirements are the responsibility of all individual travellers. Should any mandatory quarantine or testing be required, this will be at your own expense and for you to arrange. Please be advised that any costs for these requirements will be at your own expense. Our consultants are not qualified to advise you on vaccinations.

A medium level of fitness is required to fully enjoy this tour. The tour is conducted predominantly at a medium pace with regular breaks on the coach while in transit to destinations, and may involve a couple of a longer travel days to the National Parks. Cradle Mountain consists of relatively short, brisk and flat walks on well-formed tracks. While suitable for most people with a decent level of fitness, a longer 1.3km ascent to the Wineglass Bay Lookout involves steep steps on sections of the loose gravel track. You do not have to walk the entire track if too physically demanding. You will typically spend several nights at one location which means less time packing and unpacking. You will be required to move about unassisted, including boarding and alighting vehicles, ascending and descending stairs, walking on uneven or steep terrain, and handling your own luggage. This tour is not suitable for guests requiring mobility scooters and wheelchairs.
Baggage is strictly limited to one piece per person, superseding any other baggage allowance.
