Itineraries

Itinerary HOBART to RICHMOND 19 mins

Drive to the village of Richmond with its colonial past, antique shops, art and craft galleries, restaurants and tea rooms.

On the way you'll pass through the Coal River Valley wine region with more than 16 vineyards dotted throughout the valley surrounding Richmond.

In Richmond, learn about Tasmania's rich colonial heritage and take in Australia's oldest bridge, oldest still-standing Catholic Church and oldest gaol.

Visit Old Hobart Town, a carefully constructed model of Hobart as it was in 1820.

The region is also rich in produce including cheese and olives.

RICHMOND - PORT ARTHUR - 1 HR 11 MIN (83 KM)

From Richmond or Hobart head towards the Tasman Peninsula and Port Arthur.

Stop on the way at the Colonial and Convict Exhibition in Copping, with its extensive collection of convict artefacts.

Enjoy lunch in Dunalley, a quaint fishing village built around the man-made Denison Canal, with a swing bridge for road traffic. Sample local produce, including fresh seafood from the local Fish Market or the Dunalley Waterfront Café and Gallery.

Continue to Eaglehawk Neck and the many attractions of the Tasman Peninsula including the Port Arthur Historic Site.

Stop at the lookout over Pirates Bay - a magnificent beach bounded by dramatic coastline.

Just before the Neck is Tessellated Pavement, an expanse of rock 'tiles' that look as though they've been neatly installed rather than naturally formed.

Once down on the Neck itself, walk the 'dog line' near the Officers' Quarters, now restored as a museum interpreting the history and life at Eaglehawk Neck. Built in 1832, it's reputed to be the oldest wooden military building remaining in Australia.

A short drive south are the impressive coastal rock formations of the Devil's Kitchen, Tasman Arch, the Blowhole and Remarkable Cave.

From here, walk to Crescent Bay, a secluded curve of striking beauty backed by huge sand dunes.

Overnight Port Arthur and surrounds.

2 Day trip to Port Arthur and Surrounds

Day 1

Allow a day to explore the UNECSO World Heritage listed Port Arthur Historic Site with more than 30 buildings, ruins and restored period homes, dating from the prison's establishment in 1830 until its closure in 1877. During this time about 12,500 convicts served sentences and for many it was a living hell.

Afterwards, if there's time, drive to the convict ruins at the Probation Station and the World Heritage listed Convict Salt Mines at Saltwater River.

In the evening, take a ghost tour of the Port Arthur Historic Site and experience the site by night; it will seem a very different place after sunset.

Day 2

Before leaving the Tasman Peninsula, take an unforgettable sea journey on one of the small, high-speed vessels that depart from Eaglehawk Neck and hug the dramatic coastal cliffs and rock formations of the open eastern side of the peninsula with its stunning 300-metre high cliffs.

There are walks of varying lengths and difficulty, including Waterfall Bay (60-90 minutes) and Bivouac Bay (3 hours). There are also walks to explore Cape Huay, Cape Raoul or Cape Pillar - all on good walking tracks.

Or, you could follow a surfer to Ship Stern Bluff to see the giant waves that have surfers from around the globe excited.

On your return to Hobart, stop off at the Tasmanian Devil Conservation Park for a closeup encounter with a Tasmanian Devil.

Bruny Island – Hobart

Spend the day exploring Bruny Island with its fascinating history, prolific wildlife and superb scenery.

Take the main road south to the scenic penguin-viewing platform at the isthmus that joins North and South Bruny Island.

Join a mulit-award winning wildlife cruise at Adventure Bay to the southern tip of Bruny Island – one of the best wildlife experiences in Tasmania, with regular sightings of sea eagles, dolphins, whales and seals as well as close-up views of spectacular rock formations and sea caves.

Drive to the Cape Bruny Lighthouse on a wild, windswept cape looking out across the vast expanse of the Southern Ocean. The lighthouse was first lit in 1834.

Return to Kettering by ferry and head back to Hobart (40 minutes) via Kingston. From Kingston, take the scenic route along the old Channel Highway (B68) into Hobart, rather than the Southern Outlet (A6).

On the Channel Highway at Taroona, just our of Hobart, climb to the top of the Shot Tower (1870) for majestic views of the Derwent River estuary and a fascinating insight into the art of making lead gunshot.

Return to Hobart.
