What’s great about this itinerary?
The slower pace of this Tasmania self-drive itinerary will give you more time at each destination to really relax and soak up the scenery. Bliss.
Unwind in comfort at outstanding luxury lodges and boutique hotels, hand-picked for their stunning scenery, with exclusive access to the following:
- Set on 150 acres of beautifully landscaped grounds, Quamby Estate offers a 9-hole golf course, a tennis court and several lakes and hiking trails.
- Housed in a rejuvenated hydroelectric station, Pumphouse Point in Cradle Mountain National Park offers luxury accommodation right on the shore of Lake St Clair ... and in the lake itself. The Pumphouse building sits over the lake, 250 metres from the shore, connected to the mainland by a long walkway. Utterly unique.
- Saffire Freycinet is Tasmania’s premier luxury lodge, providing an authentic and immersive connection to the magnificent Freycinet National Park and Wineglass Bay.
- Perched in the exclusive enclave of South Hobart, Islington Hotel is a very special, boutique hotel with delightful gardens, boasting stunning views of Mount Wellington. Formerly a Stately Home, its classy blend of heritage and contemporary is guaranteed to please.
By the end of your 8 days in Tasmania you will have experienced breathtaking nature, five-star comfort, and the cultural hubs of Hobart and Launceston. With opportunities to add on activities such as a Tamar Valley winery tour, fishing and hiking in the world-famous Cradle Mountain National Park, taking in the stunning sights of Freycinet National Park on foot or by kayak, and either a trip to the unique Museum of Old and New Art (Mona) or Bruny Island during your stay in Hobart, you will never be at a loss for things to do.
