Background

Are you longing for a change of scenery? Some time away, immersing yourself in the beauty of the land, its wildlife, its produce, and its clean air? A holiday even?

When visiting Tasmania, with us, you will experience all of the above and much more on our exclusive one of a kind “Truly Tasmania” tour.  

Tasmania, Australia's own little island state. Picturesque, remote beaches, rugged mountains, lush valleys, and rolling hills. This diverse, sometimes wild place, is like little else in Australia. Despite being just a short flight away from the mainland, it can at times feel like you stepped into another world!

Tasmanians themselves, surrounded as they are by so much natural beauty, are generally relaxed companions. Boasting some of the most fertile soils in the entire country, today they are renowned for their artisanal food and drink, with a cornucopia of fresh local produce seemingly readily available everywhere.

In crafting this itinerary, we have heeded local advice. As such we will visit some of the “must-see sights”, as they truly are worth it, and will be exploring some hidden gems pointed to us by the locals, mixed with a few No Roads exclusive activities!

Being led by locals we will walk off the beaten path through pristine landscapes, along cliffs and ancient forests. They will be sharing with us first hand, their history and experience, and even better, welcoming us to their table to share their home.

Join us to explore Tasmania, like few have seen it before!

Overview

Tasmania, girt by sea. Over 40 percent of this small but spectacular state is protected in national parks, conservation areas, and reserves while almost all the rest of it is used to grow its epicurean delights.

There are many ways to explore this pristine environment and we have chosen to deliver it to you in an active, diverse, and immersive experience shared with locals and like-minded people.

From glamping on the East coast to luxurious hotels in Hobart. Trekking the World Heritage Freycinet National Park, the ‘Garden of Eden’, that is Maria Island and lesser-known waterfalls near Hobart. Visit Gin Distilleries, and enjoy a Farm and Winery stay, where we spend time immersed in rural life and indulge in an exclusive lunch in the charming Pickers Hut. 

This escape is beautifully crafted, providing you with the best Tasmania has to offer while leaving room for your own inspirations.

Routes

Day 1: Arrive in Hobart and check into your hotel. In the evening we will meet for your welcome briefing followed by a welcome dinner. Overnight Hobart. (D)

Day 2: Early morning we transfer to the start of our private Kunanyi (Mt Wellington) walk. The afternoon is dedicated to bringing the stories of Hobart to life, through a local historian. The evening is yours to explore Hobart’s palette of culinary delights (or ask us for some of our personal favourites). Overnight Hobart. (B,L)

Day 3: After breakfast, we head Northeast to the coastal town of Triabunna, our base from which to explore the wildlife sanctuary of Maria Island, also known as Tasmania's ‘Noah's Ark’.
Before we arrive at our glamping accommodation that night we will detour to a local Gin Distillery for a private tasting.
The evening will be a relaxed affair with cheeses and nibbles followed by a BBQ at our accommodation, along with a drink from the bar should the fancy take you. Overnight in glamping tents at Springbay Mill. (B,L,D)

Day 4: After an early breakfast we ferry over to World Heritage-listed Maria island. Maria Island is famous for its historical convict station and its well-preserved wildlife.
Being a National Park with no residents, no cars, and no predators, it's a haven for wildlife and some of Tasmania's threatened indigenous species. We will have the opportunity to take in this stunning environment during our challenging 5-hour walk which is taking us along the coastline over rugged cliffs to one of the highest points offering amazing views over the island and its surroundings. Our picnic lunch made from delicious local produce will empower us for our next experience - a historical walk through the convict station.
In the evening we ferry back to Triabunna to enjoy a private BBQ dinner at our accommodation. Overnight in glamping tents at Springbay Mill.(B,L,D)

Day 5: With an early start, we continue on to our next destination, the gorgeous Freycinet Peninsula where we will spend the day exploring its beautiful surroundings. The Freycinet Peninsula National Park and Wineglass Bay are possibly the most photographed land and seascapes in Tasmania. 

Loaded with natural beauty and offering multiple walks (such as summiting Mount Graham or the Hazards Circuit), it has something to offer for all, and we can opt for what best suits the group. We will visit Wineglass Bay for our must-have photo opportunity, and enjoy a swim in the crystal clear water followed by a refreshing reward if you’re game! Overnight at Edge of the Bay, Coles Bay. (B,L,D)

Day 6: After enjoying breakfast, we will journey inland, following the historial Midland Highway to Oatlands, one of the oldest villages on the island, where a private historical town tour awaits.
Following our grazing lunch of beautiful local produce, we continue to what we consider a true highlight, a rural Tasmanian experience during an exclusive to No Roads farm stay. This private winery and working sheep farm will be our home for the next 2 days, and we can gain an insight into what it is like to live off the land and produce such beautiful wool and their not to be missed wine.
Upon arrival, we will move into our private accommodation before exploring the farm and its surroundings on a short walk. In the evening we enjoy pre-dinner drinks followed by a locally-sourced BBQ Dinner. Local Tasmanian wines will be provided tonight. Overnight on the farm. (B,L,D)

Day 7: After a farm-style breakfast, including eggs delivered fresh from the hens, we are offered the chance to engage in the farms’ activities. If we are lucky (and you’re brave enough) we might be able to shear some sheep.
Hard-working farmers need full bellies, and we didn’t hesitate in adopting this same mantra. Lunch will be served in the shearing hut and will be an extended affair starting with a tasting of the estate's wines, followed by a lunch slow-cooked roast and fresh produce from the Jordan Valley, all enhanced with their very own wines. Overnight on the farm. (B,L,D)

Day 8: In the morning we will say goodbye to the farm life and their paddock to plate service. Diving straight back into another of Tasmania's many beautiful National Parks.
After a short drive from the farm, and a 2.5-hour trek, we’ll be rewarded with multiple waterfalls including Russell Falls, considered by many to be Tasmania's most beautiful.
One can not live only on beauty and air (as amazing as it might be), so we will retire for a local lunch and enjoy an original Tasmanian country pub experience in a historic Inn.
Refreshed we will embark on our 1.5 hour drive back to Hobart where a farewell dinner awaits. Overnight in Hobart. (B,L,D)

Day 09: Head home or stay on to explore more of Hobart and its beautiful surroundings. (B)

Note: Accommodation along the way will be a combination of thoughtfully chosen, upmarket hotels, and glamping tents. Accommodation in Hobart is in a luxury hotel in a great location, considered Australia’s first “Storytelling Hotel”.
