Grab a coffee or cool drink in one of the market’s many cafes. Senses awake, you’re ready for a sightseeing tour of this capital city. You’ll stroll through the Royal Botanical Gardens, a MAKE TRAVEL MATTER® Experience, before learning a bit of history at Battery Point - a maritime village built in 1804.

You’ll then continue your scenic journey through the rainforest bordered road of World Heritage protected Franklin-Gordon Wild Rivers National Park, passing through the old mining town of Queenstown, before arriving in the seaside township of Strahan. After a day in nature, you’ll be dazzled by Strahan’s massive Macquarie Harbour, seven times the size of Sydney Harbour, as you arrive at your hillside hotel.

Day 4: Cruise into the Wilderness
Jump into the wilderness and take to the river this morning on a guided cruise on the Gordon River Local Specialist. Look out the floor-to-ceiling windows to the dark waters, stained amber by Button-grass tannins, reflecting this untouched wilderness. Stop for a bit of history and Dive Into Culture at the isolated Sarah Island, once a site of a penal colony, and gain insights into Tasmania’s convict history. Hear the stories and learn about the natural environment, the flora and fauna as you stroll among the 3,000-year-old pine once used in shipbuilding. Visit the Hells Gates, the notoriously treacherous entrance to the harbour before docking and going on your way, passing through the mining towns of Rosebery and Tullah. You’ll travel deep into the alpine forest of Cradle Mountain National Park arriving at your Stays With Stories accommodation.

Day 5: Explore Dramatic Cradle Mountain
Waking in the heart of Cradle Mountain National Park, get ready to explore more of this beautiful, protected landscape. You’ll begin at Waldheim Chalet for a bit of history. Learn how after summiting the peak, Gustav Weindorfer and his wife Kate were compelled to build Waldheim (meaning “home in the forest”) Chalet to give tourists the opportunity to enjoy the natural surroundings. Get better acquainted with the land on a boardwalk stroll with your Travel Director through the forest on the shores of Dove Lake, gazing up at the towering, jagged peaks of Cradle Mountain and perhaps dolerite peak on a clear day. Bennetts wallabies, echidnas, and pademelons also make their home here. Consider joining an optional experience learning about and getting close (but not too close!) to the Tasmanian Devil. Or join an evening animal spotting experience viewing nocturnal mammals and marsupials including wallabies, wombats, and possums in their native night-time habitat.
Accommodation: Cradle Mountain

Next up, get acquainted with rural life at Mount Gnomon Farm on a MAKE TRAVEL MATTER® Experience. Hidden high in the hills, here you’ll Connect with Locals meeting passionate fifth-generation farmer Guy who’ll share his story and give you a tour of his apple orchard. Then sit down to a farm-to-fork, cider-paired Be My Guest lunch served in his beautiful barn overlooking his well-stocked veggie garden. Save room for more delicious tastes, after a quick stop in Sheffield, the ‘Town of Murals,’ visit the award-winning Ashgrove Tasmanian Farm joining a Local Specialist to sample local cheeses including cheddar, blue, and English country.

Experience this river gorge through their eyes as you learn about the flora and fauna and the significance the gorge played in their history. Then it's time for a scenic and yummy stop at Josef Chromy Wines. We can't think of a better way to end your time in Tassie than raising a glass or two sampling the specialties of the region including Pinot Gris, Riesling, Pinot Noir, and Chardonnay. Once you’ve been treated to a few pours, sit down to a meat and cheese platter and your main course paired with Pepik Pinot Noir and views of the winery’s English gardens, picturesque lake and vineyards.
