Tasmania - An 8 Day Roundtrip

4/21/2017 Chameleonic360 12 Comments

Hello my beautiful people, 
I had an amazing time in Tasmania. As you all know, I was traveling along the east coast of Australia for quite a while. It was beautiful but Tasmania or how people also call it 'Tassie' was definitely the highlight. We basically, rented a car and camped down the greatest camp spots ever. All the camp spots were pretty close to the beach so you could have breakfast with an amazing view. What I love about road trips is that you can stop whenever and wherever you want. And this was really important since there was always a "wow-moment" after each curve.
I would like to introduce you an 8-day itinerary. With this itinerary you can make the most out of your stay. Each additional day is of course additional time to enjoy these beautiful sights.

Day 1: Hobart to Strahan
We leave Hobart and drive through the Derwent Valley - travelling east to west across the island. You'll see the beautiful Russell Falls, walk along the Mt Field National Park Tall Trees, and visit Australia's Deepest Freshwater Lake, Lake St Clair. End the day in Strahan.

Day 2: Wild West Coast
In the untouched wilderness of Tasmanias Westcoast we explored the shifting sands of Henty Dunes. After that we continued into the Tarkine Rainforest and walked to Tasmanias highest waterfalls - the mighty Montezuma Falls.

Day 3: Craddle Mountain to Launceston
Around 950 metres above sea level is the world heritage listed Cradle Mountain in the Lake St. Claires National Park, where you can choose a walk to suit you. With an extensive range of of tracks, stroll around Dove Lake or challenge yourself with a hike to Marion's Lookout. A short drive tooked us through Sheffield, the town of murals, to Launceston.

Day 4: Launceston to Bicheno
We made our way to the East Coast and the absolutely stunning Bay of Fires. If the conditions are right, this is the perfect opportunity for a swim. Tassie's most scenic coastal drive takes you from St. Helens to Bicheno.

Day 5: Freycinet National Park
We started early and made our way up to the Wineglass Bay Lookout. Beating the crowds and the heat for that postcard photo. We relaxed on the secluded beach and enjoyed this beautiful and calm place. Otherwise you can challange yourself with a walk to Mt. Amos or Hazards Beach walk.

Day 6: Port Arthur Historic Site
After a quick look at Australias's best preserved colonial village, Richmond, we headed south to explore Tassie's ruthless convict past at the World Heritage listed Port Arthur Historic Site. Rich in visual history, we learned of the chilling life as a convict in the restored sandstone prison buildings and preserved ruins.

Day 7: Mona & the Mountain
Heading 1272m above sea level, we arrived at the summit of Mt. Wellington to enjoy stunning views over Hobart and Southern Tasmania. After the beautiful views we went to the unique Mona museum, Tasmania's most visited tourist attraction, on the Mona Ferry.

Day 8: Bruny Island
Located at the mouth of the Derwent River, Bruny Island is home to unique wildlife (including the white Bennetts wallabies), dramatic sceneery, and delicious local produce. After a short ferry ride across the D'Entrecasteaux Channel we head to the spectacular sea cliffs of Cape Bruny and the Bruny Island Lighthouse. We enjoyed great coastal walks and breathtaking beaches as we explored the stunning Island.

This is a basic plan, for what to do on this beautiful island. Of course changes are possible and you can stay also for a longer period, to enjoy every single part. I highly recommend to get there in December/January due to a better climate, and if the weather is right, you can go for a swim at the scenic wineglass bay as I did. This moment was one of the best memories on my whole australia trip.
