3 - 10 April, 2022

Sun 3 Apr     Hobart (D)

Cascade HobartWe will be met at Hobart Airport and enjoy a scenic drive to experience spectacular views from Mt Wellington (weather dependent). The view from the summit stretches over Hobart and much of the state’s south, and the slopes are laced with walking trails.
In the afternoon we discover Hobart by foot and hear the fascinating stories of how Tasmania’s capital city was established and how it grew to become the vibrant waterfront city you see today. Our local Tasmanian Historic Tours guide will identify the heritage-listed buildings of Hobart while telling the stories of the hardened characters and issues that were major influences in the early days of Hobart.
This evening we have a Welcome Dinner at a local restaurant.
Accommodation at Hadley's Orient Hotel

Mon 4 Apr  Hobart (B)

MONA Hobart

First task this morning is to get our E-Bikes so we can zoom up the coast to the Museum of Old and New Art (MONA). Tasmania has a very green government so we will be enjoying a number of their dedicated cycle trails. MONA is located within the Moorilla winery on the Berriedale peninsula. It’s the largest privately funded museum in the Southern Hemisphere.
When we have completed our visit to MONA its back on the bikes to head back to Hobart. We are going to make a detour to take in the Glenorchy Art & Sculpture Park (GASP). This outdoor display follows the curve of the water and has some colourful focal points.
Once we have reached central Hobart we will cycle West and take the Rivulet track to Cascade. We may see some platypus on our ride. Along the track we visit the Women’s Prison Convict Ruins and cycle on to the Cascade Brewery.
Back in the 1860s the Riverlet was the main source of water for the European settlement and so the colony grew along its banks. We’ll have a break when we reach the Brewery and then return to Hobart.
Accommodation at Hadley's Orient Hotel

Tues 5 Apr    Hobart: Bruny Island Cruise (B,L)

Bruny Tasmania

Today we have a full day excursion south of Hobart to Bruny Island. We start with a coach transfer to Kettering and take the ferry to Bruny Island.
We have a 3 hour Wilderness Cruise including lunch. The cruise includes floating by Australia’s highest sea cliffs and entering deep-sea caves. We are in search of wildlife such as seals, dolphins, migrating whales and sea birds.
Our guide will explain everything and make our day out something to remember.
Accommodation at Hadley's Orient Hotel

Wed 6 Apr  Hobart: Bangor E-Bike Excursion (B,L)

LUnchThis morning we travel west of Hobart and spend a day exploring Bangor. Access to Bangor is restricted so we will have a unique opportunity to ride through this historic area with its stunning wild landscape.
We will get to hear about the Aboriginal and European history and especially that first contact with Abel Tasman in 1642. It’s as if we have ridden back in time across a natural wild coastline that people rarely access.
Protected by forested headlands, sheltered bays and sapphire waters, there is plenty of temptation for a summer swim to refresh your ride or watch from the whalers lookout for migrating whales.
Along the way we will stop for another gourmet picnic lunch.
Late afternoon we transfer from Bangor to our Hobart hotel.

Thu 7 Apr  Hobart - Orford ( B,L)

Richmond TasmaniaNestled between river and mountain, Hobart has one of the most picturesque harbours in the world. We have a 2.5 hour city paddle and explore the vibrant, working waterfront to discover the true heart of Hobart. We glide past prestigious homes perched along the edge of Hobart's oldest suburbs, marvel at Hobart's wooden tall sailing ships, keep an eye out for Sammy the resident seal, hope for a pod of dolphins, peer through crystal-clear water at native sea stars and take photos of Hobart from a rarely seen perspective.

Our discovery of Hobart wouldn't be complete without some locally caught fish and chips from the city's famed floating fish punts. We can enjoy them with the best view in town straight from our kayaks!

In the afternoon we travel to Orford via the historic village of Richmond, nicely situated in the Coal River Valley wine region.  

Take a stroll down the pretty 19th century Richmond streets and visit the Richmond Bridge; built by convicts in the 1820s it is the oldest bridge in Australia. The village is famous for its elegant Georgian architecture; beautiful heritage buildings, now housing galleries, tea shops, craft boutiques and museums.
Accommodation at Orford Blue Waters Hotel

Fri 8 Apr   Orford: Maria Island E-Bike Excursion (B,L)

Tasmania E-BikingWe start the day with a transfer to Triabunna wharf to get the 10.00am ferry to Maria Island.
World Heritage Listed Maria Island National Park is a gem in the crown of Tasmania’s East Coast, a mixture of remote wilderness, convict ruins, sapphire waters and pure white beaches rimmed by marine conservation reserve.

Abel Tasman named the island Maria in 1642 after Maria van Dieman, wife of Anthony van Diemen, Governor-General of the Dutch East Indies in Batavia (now Jakarta).
Our Maria Island host and E-Bike guide will be Ben Rea. Ben is a local who is also 8th generation Australian and can trace his ancestry back to convict First Fleet arrivals in Sydney (1788). Ben grew up on Maria Island and will help us explore the island through the stories of the Island’s people and environment that make Maria unique.
The history of Maria also covers the stories of contact between Tasmanian Aboriginal people and the first European explorers; followed by the convicts and their struggles for freedom, alongside the pioneering spirit of 19th century Italian entrepreneur, viticulturist and industrialist Diago Bernacchi and the visionary wildlife conservationists responsible for the protection of Maria as a National Park.
On the Island we will enjoy a gourmet picnic lunch.
Late afternoon we take the ferry back to Triabunna and transfer to our Orford hotel.

Sat 9 Apr  Orford - Hobart (B,L)

Maria Island, TasmaniaThis morning we travel south to Port Arthur.
Today is all about spectacular coastlines, fascinating geological features and World Heritage listed Port Arthur Historic Site.

The coastal environment is home to sea cliffs and unique rock formations, such as Tessellated Pavement, the Blow Hole, Tasman Arch and the Devil’s Kitchen.
We visit Port Arthur Historic Site, a special place of vivid history, cultural heritage and compelling convict stories.
We then travel on to Hobart for one night
