Experience the highlights of Tasmania on this 5-day, small-group tour of the island. Start in Hobart, making your way to Strahan and along the rugged West Coast. From here, continue to Cradle Mountain, famous for hiking opportunities, and up to Launceston. Continue to Bicheno, where you visit a Tasmanian Devil sanctuary, and onto the scenic Freycinet National Park before returning to Hobart.

Worth a walk up to have a look at the views. Unfortunately I went to sprint up the hill in an attempt to beat a starva record and lost it on the loose pebbles on the steps. Forever will be the lookout that destroyed my iphone. :) Time to go shopping for a new iPhone hahahaha

This lookout was used by whalers to spot the whales as they were making their way down the coast. When one was spotted, a person would climb a tree and hoist a flag. Then the hunt would begin. Thankfully there is no whaling but the tree still exists with the iron mechs dim at the top that was used to raise the flag.

An easy short walk rewarded with incredible views from two platforms. You may even see a whale or two.

Great look out over Bicheno. Fairly easy walk with kids. Steps so not disabled access or pram friendly. Excellent views.

Lovely small walk to see amazing views! Turquoise water against blue skies. So pretty! Bicheno has a few lovely shops for souvenirs and a spot of shopping. Swimming in the crystal clear water was wonderful.
