Sydney's Harbour Bridge at nightThis tour takes you via all the main Tasmanian highlights including the Bay of Fires, Freycinet National Park, the historical town of Port Arthur, Hobart and the stunning Cradle Mountain National Park. All this combined with some of the greatest roads in Australia..!

Sydney - there's so much to see and do in this fantastic city! The Opera House, Harbour Bridge, Darling Harbour, Manly, Circular Quay - and that just touches the surface. You could spend a couple of days or a week depending on your timescales.

Snowy Mountains - huge alpine scenery in Australia? Most people don't realise that Australia has more ski runs than Switzerland! The Snowy Mountains Hydro-Electric Scheme is an amazing feat of engineering and so take some time to check out the visitors centres. You have a day spare to walk, relax or drive a circuit route around the mountains.

Victoria Highlands - continuing from the Snowy Mountains in NSW, Victoria has its own share of beautiful scenery and winding roads.

Grampians National Park - after driving through the Victoria goldfields you'll find yourself in the lovely Grampians National Park. This area of granite highlands is jam packed with wildlife with superb lookouts and waterfalls. There's a spare day here to relax and visit the many local attractions.

The Great Ocean Road

The Great Ocean Road - Famous as one of the most scenic coastal drives in the world, words can't describe the wonderful scenery on this 280km stretch of road close to Melbourne. Every driver should travel this road at least once in their life!

Bay of FiresBay of Fires - known for its gigantic limestone columns, a visit at dusk or dawn is an absolutely 'must'!

Freycinet National Park - steep granite rocks separate idyllic sandy beaches like 'Wineglass Bay' and 'Sleepy Bay' with a remarkable number of wildflowers in spring.

Port Arthur - the convict settlement on this remote peninsula still existed just 130 years ago and accounted for 12,000 prisoners! Even if you're not a history buff you can't help but be astonished by the place.

Port ArthurHobart - visit Tasmania's capital and have a day to explore the town or drive south along the coastline and back to Hobart again.

Strahan - a wonderful west coast town with a lovely atmosphere and plenty to see

Cradle Mountains NP - explore breathtaking alpine landscapes with rugged mountains, crystal clear lakes, a rich flora and fauna and the unique walking tracks through the most famous National Park in Tasmania.
