Tasmania Cradle Mountain and Unspoiled Wilderness

Self-drive Holidays

Drive from the tail to the top of Tasmania via the coast and mountainous heartlands. If you’ve always wanted to become immersed in Tasmania’s highland heaths and misty mountains, here’s how you do it. This six-day road trip will take you from Hobart to Launceston with two nights in the seaside town of Strahan to enjoy along the way. With a couple of nights in Cradle Mountain National Park and no end of optional excursions and rainforest trails to look forward to, this is the perfect introduction to untouched Tasmania. Pause for a picnic alongside a lake or opt for a wildlife watching tour in the company of a local expert – this is where you get to choose your own adventure. From the moment you pick up your car in Hobart to when you drop off the keys in Launceston, you’ll be looked after every step of the way. This is how to travel with confidence, safe in the knowledge that accommodation and route details are all organised for you in advance. Freedom, flexibility and peace of mind – what’s not to like?
