Wayoutback Tasmanian Safaris – 3 Day Wombat West Coast Tasmania Safari

Including 2 Nights Hotel Accommodation
Location: Hobart
Day 1:
A Wayoutback Tasmanian Safaris vehicle will pick you up from your hotel to commence a 3 day Wombat West Coast Tasmania Safari. Journey early in the morning from Hobart with first stop at Mt Field National Park, a favourite among Tasmanians. The beauty of this park stems from its diverse vegetation including its Swamp Gums, the tallest trees in Australia. Take the opportunity to witness these towering natural wonders during a Tall Trees walk where your guide will explain the various flora and fauna that calls Mt Field home. Afterwards, take a walk along the bottom of the beautiful cascading Russell Falls. The drive to the next stop, Lake St Clair is one of Australia’s most scenic. See Australia’s deepest lake at 167 metres. The lake was formed from ice glaciers over the last two million years and feeds the Derwent River which winds its way to Hobart. The breathtaking backdrop of Mt Olympus sets a perfect scene for some great holiday snaps while you take a walk around the area. From Lake St Clair it is onto the quiet but picturesque west coast village of Strahan. Overnight accommodation at Strahan. (L,D)
Day 2: Enjoy Strahan with a range of optional activities on offer. Optional activities include quad biking on the Henty Sand Dunes or a jet boating adventure on the King River (own expense). The Henty Sand Dunes are the largest moving sand dune system in Tasmania where you can take in the rugged beauty of the island’s west coast. An ex-mining thoroughfare, the King River is flanked by mountain ranges with a growing range of rainforest plant species including Leatherwood, Pandani, Giant Tree Ferns and Myrtle. You may also choose to partake in some sea kayaking or take a leisurely cruise along the Gordon River (own expense). Overnight accommodation at Strahan.
Day 3: This morning it is a 90-minute drive to the stunning Cradle Mountain. Feeling energetic, embark on a hike along the jagged contours of the mountain taking in the serene beauty of your surroundings. If you’d rather take it easy then there are less strenuous walks around the majestic Dove Lake. Don’t forget to keep your eye out for one of our Aussie icons, the wombat. While they may look cute and cuddly they can tend to be a bit grumpy, so keep your distance. After plenty of scenic photographs, journey to the northern town of Launceston. Tour concludes at approximately 5.30pm, at which time hotel drop offs will commence. (B,L)
