On your second afternoon, venture into the bush to help conservationists track Tasmanian devils.
Day 3 Hobart to Curringa Farm, Hamilton
Pick up your car and leave the coast behind. As you head west you’ll pass rolling fields and verdant forest valleys before arriving at your farmstay for the night. Soak up the rural views from the deck of your contemporary cottage, or perhaps join your welcoming hosts on an authentic tour of the working sheep farm.
Day 4 Curringa Farm, Hamilton to Strahan

Use Peppers Cradle Mountain Lodge as your base to explore the many walking trails of this stunning national park and after a day’s hike, cosy up by the log fire in the main lodge or spot wallabies grazing amongst the trees from your forest cabin.
Days 8-9 Cradle Mountain to Launceston
Continue to Launceston, savour a sparkling wine at the renowned vineyards of Josef Chromy and stay in towering grain silos that have undergone a clever architectural transformation into a chic hotel.

Time permitting, take the scenic route to Freycinet National Park, stopping for lunch in the stunning seaside village of Binalong Bay at the southern end of the spectacular Bay of Fires. On arrival, marvel at the unique structure of your secluded glass pavilion, nestled in the bush.
