A few of the many Tasmania Tours we feature are described below.

Port Arthur
A whole-day tour steeped in rugged coastlines and rugged people. Port Arthur was an infamous prison for convicts sent from Britain for crimes both trivial and fierce. Enjoy or shudder at the guided tour through some 30 preserved buildings. Take a boat trip to the Isle of the Dead. This is history writ large. Port Arthur despite its horrific past is really a place of stunning natural beauty. Tasmania was once known as Van Dieman's Land and has a fascinating past for both indigenous Australians and the Europeans who came later. You can spend plenty of time at this remarkable historic site.

Strahan
The Gordon River is a stunning part of Tasmania and there are daily cruises from Strahan. The vessel is superb with floor to ceiling windows for the best views with the option of deluxe seating in the upper deck. This part of the Island State has a world heritage listing because of its outstanding natural beauty. The rainforest is reflected in the pristine waters as you cruise smoothly along. You go ashore and wander into this land that time forgot. Sarah Island was a rugged convict settlement so there is history as well. The trip lasts about 6 hours and you can depart in either the morning or afternoon.

Cradle Mountain
This is a three-day excursion to a simply stunning part of Tasmania which is world heritage listed and rightly so. Your leisurely drive from Launceston brings you to the region where you stroll through the magical Ballroom Forest beside the exquisite Lake Dove. Accommodation is in comfortable log cabins. Next morning you make the easy ascent of the breathtaking Cradle Mountain. The views are unforgettable. There are many short scenic walks to be enjoyed as well as the superb visitors' centre. Everything is provided including your rain jacket and waterproof over pants. They think of everything is Tassie.
