This seven-day private journey allows guests to immerse themselves in local food and wine, world class lodgings and signature Tassie experiences

This celebration of Tasmanian food, wine and culture reveals the very best of the Apple Isle. Take a self-drive journey from Launceston to Hobart, indulging in the flavours of Freycinet, the Huon Valley and Bruny Island along the way. A day at MONA challenges your perceptions in many ways and is sure to amaze. Highlights of the experience include indulging at Tasmania’s luxury coastal sanctuary Saffire Freycinet, discovering the bizarre and brilliant works at MONA, getting a behind-the-scenes experience at a raptor refuge, and touring the gourmet havens of Bruny Island and the Huon Valley.

Day 1

Arrive Launceston

Collect your rental car and drive to your waterfront accommodation. Spend an afternoon at leisure wandering the heritage-listed streets of Australia’s third-oldest city.

 

Day 2

Freycinet National Park

Journey to the East Coast, home to the majestic mountains, azure bays and white beaches of Freycinet National Park. Settle in to luxury boutique lodge, Saffire Freycinet, and soak up the landscape and views of the Hazards mountain range across Great Oyster Bay. Tonight, dine at Palate, possibly Tasmania’s most exclusive restaurant.

 

Days 3-4

Freycinet National Park

Relax, indulge and enjoy the beautiful coastal reserve with your choice of activities. Take a guided walk to stunning Wineglass Bay or enjoy private tastings at Freycinet Vineyard.
