Itinerary

Transfer from Hobart to Port Arthur, walk to Cape Hauy

Our adventure begins when we pick you up from your Hobart accommodation between 7:30-8am. Our scenic drive south-east to the Tasman Peninsula is the perfect opportunity for your guides to introduce this beautiful area to you. Our first stop is Fortescue Bay, a pristine white-sandy beach with turquoise waters often frequented by dolphins. Here, overlooking the bay, your guides will conduct an exciting trip-briefing (please see notes below for full briefing details) before we head out on our first bushwalk to Cape Hauy. This walk takes us through a diverse range of vegetation types and ends with exhilarating coastal views from the spectacular, huge cliffs. This well-graded track is also the last day's walk of this spectacular coastal trail. After a delicious picnic lunch we journey to the Port Arthur historic site for a cruise and tour. In the late afternoon we arrive at our comfortable accommodation where you can kick back with a drink while your guides cook up a BBQ feast. Walking Time: 4-5 hours | Walking Distance: 9km

Walk to Cape Raoul

Today we walk to the massive and magnificent Cape Raoul. The track is challenging – undulating through wind-blasted coastal scrub – yet supremely rewarding. Keep a look out for Pademelons and Bennets wallabies on the track, and the endangered Wedge-tailed Eagle swooping overhead. We come across huge sea cliffs which are home to the infamous Shipsterns Bluff, one of Australia's biggest and most gnarly surf-breaks. Here there is an abundance of bird life and expansive views across the Tasman sea and to Cape Pillar. If the time of year is right, we may even be lucky enough to see whales migrating along the coast! After a great picnic lunch in the bush we head back to our accommodation to freshen up before going out to dinner at one of the area's lovely restaurants. Walking Time: 5-6 hours | Walking Distance: 14 km

Wildlife and Cape Pillar sea cruise, transfer to Hobart

After a scrumptious breakfast we head off on the award winning Tasman Island Wildlife Cruise. This world class eco-adventure cruise travels along the spectacular coastline of the Tasman National Park between Port Arthur and Eaglehawk Neck, beneath the tallest sea-cliffs in the Southern Hemisphere, with spectacular views of the remote Cape Pillar from our vessel. One of the highlights of the cruise is boating beneath Tasman Island, a great landmark of the Southern Ocean. The island's slender white lighthouse is still a beacon for seafarers entering Storm Bay including during the famous annual Sydney to Hobart Yacht Race. We also see fur-seals and albatross, and have a chance of seeing dolphins, whales, and a huge amount of other spectacular and rare sea and bird-life. After a last lunch prepared by your guides, we transfer back to the beautiful water-front city of Hobart. We will drop you at your Hobart accommodation at approximately 4pm. Wildlife Cruise: 3 hours | Driving Time: 1.5 hours

Additional Information

The Three Capes area in the Tasman National Park is a stunning addition to the Tasmanian 'must-do' list. On this 3 day active tour you will experience the best of the Peninsula: coastal walks, convict history and a wildlife cruise, all complimented by delicious meals and local knowledge provided by your experienced wilderness guides. Day one takes us to the magnificent Cape Hauy. The impressive coastal sea cliffs found along the walk provide a permanent air of drama to our explorations and are home to many rare sea-birds. In the afternoon we enjoy a fascinating tour at the World Heritage listed Port Arthur Historic Site, and spend the evening at unique accommodation right in the heart of the Peninsula. After a scrumptious breakfast we trek to Cape Raoul, one of Tasmania's finest day walks. This beautiful track weaves across headlands of coastal heath to see one of the world's most gnarly big-wave surf breaks: Shipsterns Bluff. On our last day we experience the award winning Tasman Island Cruise; a journey exploring sea caves, blowholes and the tallest sea cliffs in the Southern Hemisphere, including the chance to view the dramatic Cape Pillar from the sea, the best vantage point to appreciate its colossal sea cliffs that rise up to 300m above sea level. The highlight of this thrilling cruise is the abundant wildlife: fur seals, albatross, marine life, and often dolphins and whales! Allowing numerous days to explore gives you a deep appreciation of what makes this area so special. Join us on this exciting active adventure of the Three Capes region and Tasman Peninsula, Tasmania's premier coastal wonderland.
