HOBART GASTRONOMY & FLY FISHING
Start your Tasmania tour in hip Hobart. This waterfront city offers a thriving food scene, excellent museums, and a salty breeze from the fishing docks. Accompanied by a private guide, transfer to cute New Norfolk town where you’ll linger over a three-course meal paired with Tasmanian wines at the much-lauded Agrarian Kitchen.
Afterward, take a tour of its world-renowned kitchen garden and cookery school. Burn off the calories with a hike to the summit of Mount Wellington for spectacular views over Hobart and the wilderness you’re about to explore.
Stay in the island’s leading fly-fishing estate. With its limitation on guest numbers, you can expect total privacy at this gorgeous private retreat in the east coast highlands. Take a day to fly fish and hone your skills in the pristine Currawong Lakes region.
COASTAL FREYCINET & BEN LOMOND BUSH
Your next stop is Freycinet National Park, as handsome an arrangement of nature as anywhere in the world. From the stunning pink granite Hazard Mountains to the elegance of show-stopper Wineglass Bay, your progress through this diverse park will be dogged by the endless photo opportunities. Along the way, your guide will inform you about the creatures, plants, and geology found here, as well as the park’s history.
Take a private boat or kayak expedition along the Freycinet coast, with the opportunity to dive, snorkel or just swim to get a more intimate take on the offshore delights of this park. Finally, take to the air in a plane and fly over Freycinet’s magnificent landscape, allowing you to put all the elements that you saw from the land and the sea together as one.
The next stop is the arts and food hub of Launceston. Here you’ll rendezvous with your Bush Adventure guide, who’ll lead you into the kangaroo and wildlife haven of Ben Lomond National Park. After a delicious campfire dinner and learning about how the experience supports local conservation efforts, begin your ‘quoll patrol’—a nighttime safari looking for brushtail possums, wallabies, and eastern quolls, among other fantastic beasts.
Afterward, it’s on to the island’s scurrying superstar—the Tasmanian devil. Pelorus has negotiated an exclusive behind-the-scenes experience in conservation-focused Trowunna Wildlife Park—home to the world’s largest heritage population of endangered Tasmanian devils. Afterward, you’ll gallop through this awe-inspiring landscape on horseback on an expedition to find the remarkable duck-billed platypus.
