Attractions list

Salamanca Market
Wicked Cheese (free cheese tasting)
Whilst the streets are quiet, we will take you on a city highlights tour en route to Hobart’s spectacular backdrop, Kunanyi (Mt. Wellington). Breathe in the famous pristine Tasmanian air as we drive up the 1272m to the pinnacle where you will be greeted by the very best view of Hobart and surrounds. After you take that perfect Instagram worthy selfie, you would have no doubt worked up an appetite! It is now time for Salamanca Market (Saturday only). This world class market offers the best of Tassie culture - art, produce, buskers, souvenirs, beverages and much more!

After 90 minutes of exploring the market, we will make our way to Richmond. An iconic township rich in convict history, sandstone and colonial buildings and home to Australia’s oldest bridge and catholic church. The afternoon presents you with two options. The first is Bonorong Wildlife Sanctuary where you can hand feed kangaroos and get up close and personal with all the unique Tasmanian and Australian wildlife, including the famous Tasmanian Devil - an absolute highlight (even for a local!).
Entry cost $27.00pp

The second option is MONA Museum - the largest privately owned museum in the southern hemisphere! Known and loved for its quirky and strange art, this museum also offers restaurants and bars that showcase their local wine and Tasmanian produce. Enjoy wandering around this amazing world renowned museum of old and new art.

Entry cost $30.00pp
If both options sound equally appealing, we are happy to cater for both! This will incur an additional fee of $22.00 fee which will include your ferry back to the city where you will make your own way back to your accommodation.

Cradle Mountain in a day from Hobart

Recognised worldwide for its sheer beauty, Cradle Mountain is not to be missed while visiting Tasmania. Once thought to be impossible, but due to high demand, here it is: Hobart to Cradle Mountain and back in a day!

Join us on this 14 hour day tour and enjoy the scenic beauty as we make our way north from Hobart. The 4 hour drive each way is broken into 2 x 2 hour intervals to stretch the legs, grab a coffee and something to eat (at own cost).
Upon arrival at the Information Centre on the doorstep of Cradle Mountain, we will stock up on fluids and make our way to the shores of Dove Lake where you will have 2 hours to wander around the Dove Lake circuit or choose one of the many other large or small walks.
Once Dove Lake has been explored and you’ve captured that prized Instagram photo, it’s time to move on to the Enchanted forest and King Billy Pine walks. These two exceptionally beautiful and ancient walks will have you gazing through the forest with amorous delight as you breathe in the crisp, pristine air from under the canopy of 4000 year old trees. Native wildlife is abundant in this area, so keep your eyes peeled and you may see the elusive Tasmanian Devil, wombats, Spotted Quolls, wallabies and more!
After 4.5 hours exploring it is time to make the mission back South.
This tour departs Hobart at 6am and returns by 8pm.
