SAMPLE ITINERARY (CUSTOMIZABLE)
Day 1: Fly into Hobart

Arrive in Hobart, the capital city of Tasmania, to check into your beautiful boutique hotel before the adventure begins. We recommend visiting MONA – The Museum of Old and New Art to be immersed in the captivating world of art and culture. Nestled along the picturesque Berriedale Peninsula, MONA promises a truly unique and thought-provoking experience. This architectural marvel beckons you to explore its underground galleries, where an eclectic collection spanning ancient artifacts to contemporary masterpieces awaits. Unlike traditional museums, MONA embraces innovation with its "O" device, providing interactive insights into each artwork. Let the immersive atmosphere and stunning waterfront views transport you as you discover the fascinating intersections of human expression.
Overnight: Hobart
Day 2: Tahune Airwalk

Drive approximately 1.5 hours Southwest from Hobart to the Tahune Airwalk and ascend into the canopy on this 600m-long elevated walkway high above the forest floor. Home to the tallest tree in all of Tasmania, standing at 100.5m (about 329.72 ft) you’ll be in awe looking up at the sheer massiveness of it. Included in this experience is a Huan Pine walk along the river’s edge where you will learn about the life cycle of these valuable trees. From young Huon pine seedlings along the riverbank to those that are up to 360-400 years old, this is an amazing walk back in time. These rare and unique trees can live more than 3000 years old. End the tour on the Swinging Bridges in the historic McKay’s Track that is nestled alongside the Huan and Picton Rivers. Along the way, you will pass the ruins of the 1870’s home occupied by Police Constable Francis McPartlan, a former Irish convict who was responsible for walking McKay’s track to check timber licenses.

In the morning, embark on a short drive to Bonorong Wildlife Sanctuary for an up-close encounter with Tasmanian Devils, Wombats, Quolls, and more native Australian animals. Hand-feed the gentle Tasmanian kangaroos for a delightful experience. The dedicated wildlife care team contributes significantly to native wildlife research and protection in Tasmania. Continue the journey through the charming Derwent Valley, adorned with orchards and hop fields, and showcasing historical landmarks. Proceed to Mount Field National Park, one of the state's oldest. Immerse yourself in the lush green forest canopy, catching glimpses of some of the world's tallest flowering trees. Experience the awe of Russell Falls after a short rainforest stroll.

The farm is a fantastic luxurious getaway for those looking to relax in beautiful Tasmania and a great home base to explore the adventurous side of Tasmania.

There are options for single travelers to join most tours. Solo Travelers can choose to pay the single supplement and have their own room throughout the tour. For those willing to share, we also have a Twin Share option that is offered for the majority of our tours. This means you will be sharing the hotel rooms with another single, same gender traveller who also books the Twin Share option. If this is the case, there will be no single supplement charged to either of you. If we are unable to match you with another Twin Share traveler, there may be a single surcharge applied to cover the full cost of the rooms on some of our longer tours. Please enquire before finalizing your booking for full details.
