Trip Overview
Overview

The Australian island-state of Tasmania is home to some of the planet’s most extraordinary natural wonders, from towering pink cliffs to world-renowned grapes—and charismatic marsupials found nowhere else on Earth. Join a curious cohort of Atlas Obscura and Tastemade travelers for an immersive, five-day exploration of Tasmania’s most vibrant national parks. Sip Tassie wine while searching for seals, sample locally sourced seafood under the stars, and stroll through the bush, keeping your eyes peeled for pear-shaped red bellied pademelon and famously fierce Tasmanian devils, among other endemic species that call this island home. Atlas Obscura acknowledges that this tour takes place on the unceded sovereign lands and waters of the palawa nations of lutruwita/Tasmania. We recognize that the connection these Traditional Custodians have to Country goes back thousands of generations and will continue long after us. We pay our respects to Elders past, present and emerging.

Highlights
  • Wineglass Bay, one of the world’s most beautiful beaches
  • Locally sourced meals prepared by your guides
  • Distillery tour
  • Premium local wines
  • Wildlife encounters on Maria Island

Itinerary

Itineraries and daily schedules are subject to change. We expect to do everything listed in the itinerary, though the order may be rearranged based on weather or other local conditions.

Trip Leaders

Brenton
Having settled in Tasmania in early 2011, Brenton is at home in the mountains. He’s trekked more of the island state than most, and is excited to share many a tale from his adventures. Holding a degree in Archaeology, Brenton is interested in human history and migration. When he isn’t on the track leading guests, he can be found running with his beautiful dog, Jack, around the leafy suburbs of North Hobart.
Daniel
Born and raised in northern Tasmania, Daniel spent his early years camping, kayaking, and exploring Tassie with his family. After a few years spent living on the mainland, Daniel returned home to start a career in guiding. Completing a bachelor’s degree in Tourism Management in 2016, he has worked on the Bay of Fires, Maria Island, and Freycinet with a focus on gourmet travel. Daniel has grown to love all things locally produced, and when he’s not working, he can be found at one of the many craft beer bars or beaches around Hobart.

Additional Info

Pricing

The total cost of this trip is $1,730, based on double occupancy.

Traveling Solo?

You’re in good company. Solo travelers typically make up about half of our small groups. With curiosity at the center of our experiences, there’s a natural camaraderie that develops over the course of a trip. Have your own room, subject to availability, for a supplemental cost of $230. When booking, please select the single room package option.

Accommodations

We’ll be staying at the Freycinet Resort for both nights of the trip. Tucked away in thick forest on the side of Mount Paul and surrounded by protected national park land, Freycinet Resort offers a private, peaceful experience. It’s the only resort on the mountain, and it offers unparalleled 360-degree views that encompass The Hazards, Friendly Beaches, Great Oyster Bay, and the Tasman Sea. Each private eco-certified lodge has a king bed and a private outdoor deck. 

Arrival & Departure

Our trip begins in Hobart in the morning on Day 1. We recommend you arrive in Hobart in the evening the day before our trip begins so that you can meet our guide and group first thing the following morning. Our trip concludes in the evening on Day 3. If leaving Tasmania directly after our trip, we recommend staying the night in Hobart and departing the following morning. If you’d like to extend your trip, we’re happy to provide suggestions for things to do and see in Tasmania on your own.

Activity Level

Travelers should feel comfortable walking two to four miles over the course of each day, spending time in nature, remaining on their feet for long periods of time, and sometimes walking on uneven terrain. Travelers should also be comfortable on and around water.
