Welcome to day 1 of your Tassie adventure! Our journey begins as we pick you up from your hotel and embark on a scenic drive through the picturesque Derwent Valley, heading towards Maydena.
Upon arrival, the experienced team from Maydena Bike Park will ensure you are fully equipped and ready to conquer the trails. These trails have been meticulously crafted by Dirt Art, a renowned Tasmanian trail company. With over 73 individual trails to choose from, ranging from beginner-friendly rides to challenging wilderness and pro trails, Maydena Bike Park offers an unparalleled experience.

After an exhilarating day on the trails, we'll transport you back to our accommodation for the night. The evening is yours to savour, whether you choose to dine, unwind with a drink, or explore the surrounding area.
Prepare for a relaxed morning as we immerse ourselves in the breathtaking Mt Field National Park. Renowned for its diverse landscapes and breathtaking beauty, this park boasts towering mountain peaks, ancient rainforests, and waterfalls. Our exploration will take us along various walking tracks, including the renowned Russell Falls Track.
After some time in Mt Field, we hit the road, venturing west through the central highlands. Our first stop is Derwent Bridge, where we will visit the remarkable Wall in the Wilderness. Crafted over a span of 15 years by the talented woodwork sculptor Greg Duncan, this masterpiece spans 100 meters and tells the story of the highlands. Carved predominantly from rare Huon Pine, the relief sculptures depict the history, resilience, and struggles of the people who shaped and protected this region. It is a tribute to their indomitable spirit.
Continuing our journey, we arrive at the charming coastal town of Strahan. Here, we check into our hotel before heading out to Henty Dunes. Rising up to 30 meters tall and stretching several kilometres inland, these colossal sand dunes create a desert-like oasis amidst the lush rainforests of Tasmania's west coast. We will relish the opportunity while on the west to have a picnic dinner while basking in the mesmerizing sunset, surrounded by the beauty of this unique landscape.
This morning we depart for Queenstown to partake in the King River Gorge, Raft and Steam Experience. This extraordinary collaboration between King River Rafting and the West Coast Wilderness Railway seamlessly combines the thrill of white water rafting with the historical charm of a heritage steam train ride.
Our rafting journey will begin on the awe-inspiring King River, surrounded by the majestic West Coast Range mountains. Navigating through 7km of the King River Gorge's captivating rapids, we will venture from Newall Creek to Dubbil Barril, passing through a remote rainforest gorge adorned with ancient Huon Pine trees.
Along the way, we will catch glimpses of the West Coast Wilderness Railway. Continuing downstream, we will catch up with the train at Dubbil Barril Station. The return steam train ride will guide us out of the gorge back towards Queenstown. The train will make a stop at Rinadeena, providing a water stop for the train and a nice hot drink for us.
We will regroup on the bus and make a stop for lunch. Reenergized, we continue our journey towards Cradle Mountain National Park. Once we arrive, we’ll check into our accommodation and enjoy the evening by the fire or maybe out under the stars.
This morning we will offer those interested in an early morning walk the opportunity to head up to Dove Lake. This 6km track is surely one of the premier walks in Tasmania. Starting from Dove Lake, a glacially carved lake directly beneath Cradle Mountain, the walk offers both intimate and epic views of the famous mountain. The track undulates around Dove Lake, traverses beneath the mountain, and then returns through the magnificent rainforest to the starting point. The walk takes you through some of Tasmania's special vegetation, from button grass to myrtle, sassafras, Fagus and King Billy pine. Walk in a clockwise direction.
Then it’s over to our friends from Cradle Mountain Canyons who are going to take you on an accelerating tour at Dove Canyon.
Dove Canyon is Tassie adventure at its best. We walk through the pristine rainforest to this stunning canyon. After abseiling in, we spend the day walking and floating through the canyon and doing what we have to do to navigate the obstacles we find along the way. The main obstacles are six waterfalls which we abseil, jump or slide off!
One of the highlights is the Laundry Chute - a ten-metre high natural slide that shoots you out of a large cave (which we call The Pit) into a big open pool. Very unique and highly exhilarating.
This is a committing trip - once you're in, there's only one way out and there is no way to walk around any of the waterfalls. Having said that, most of our clients have no canyoning experience, and it doesn't require any particular skills as such - just an ability to swim and a sense of adventure.
You do need a decent level of fitness. The hardest part of the day physically is the hike out of the canyon. It is 20 minutes, up a steep hill, in a wetsuit, to get back to where our dry clothes are waiting for us.
This evening we kick back and enjoy another night in the Cradle Mountain National Park.
This morning you will have one more opportunity to explore the Cradle Mountain National Park before we head east towards Freycinet National Park. We have a long drive ahead of us but we will make a few stops along the way to break up the journey.
When we arrive in to Coles Bay, Freycinet, it’s time to throw on the hiking boots and get those legs moving again as we’re going to conquer Mt Amos. Mount Amos is part of the range of granite mountains, known as the Hazards, which dominate Coles Bay and Freycinet National Park. The track to the summit is steep and strenuous, but walkers are rewarded with panoramic views. This hike takes around 2 hours to complete.
After we make it back down to sea level we’ll head back to our accommodation for the evening.
This morning we make our way to the waterfront as our partners at Freycinet Adventure take you on a relaxing paddle around the Freycinet Peninsula.
On this relaxed guided tour of the Freycinet coastline, you’ll glide beneath pink granite mountains, past pristine sandy beaches and across waters so clear you feel you can touch the marine life below. You’ll experience Freycinet’ abundant wildlife as you weave along the coastline. Our guides share little known stories of the area and give you the chance to find out some fantastic facts. We stop half way through on a secluded sandy beach for a freshly brewed cup of coffee and a tasty snack.
Our tours are run in small groups which means you have the chance to ask questions along the way.
All you need to wear is comfortable clothing, you will be provided with warm jackets if required. Your footwear will get wet so we recommend flip flops/sandals or bare feet.
After a morning on the water, we will grab a bite to eat before we move on to our next activity.
The crew at ALL4 are going to be taking you on an unforgettable and fun adventure. Based in the seaside town of Coles Bay on Tasmania’s East Coast, ALL4 operates in one of the World’s most spectacular National Parks, Freycinet. Specialising in small, intimate adventure tours, ALL4’s vehicles allow us to share hidden, often otherwise inaccessible locations within the park, enabling you to experience the wonder of Freycinet in ways that few people will ever have the opportunity to do. Jump on board a 2 seater Honda Pioneer ATV as you wind your way through eucalypt covered hills, boulder strewn valleys and coastal heath, to where red granite, blue seas and fine white sands collide at South Friendly Beaches. Or head to the dramatic sea cliffs of Cape Tourville for panoramic views of the Freycinet Peninsula and a glimpse of Wineglass Bay. It’s an experience you’ll never forget.
After a day of exploring the sea and land it’s time to kick back and enjoy the evening.
After a massive 6 days of bike riding, rafting, canyoning, hiking, kayaking, and all-wheel driving, it’s time to unwind with a cruise into Wineglass Bay. Wineglass Bay Cruises is a 41⁄2 hour cruise of the waterways surrounding Freycinet National Park from Coles Bay to Wineglass Bay on Tasmania's East Coast.
Cruise the spectacular coastline of Freycinet National Park from Coles Bay to Wineglass Bay. Be enthralled by the stunning granite coastline, including the dramatic pink peaks of the Hazards range.
Discover a coast dotted with sparkling white sand beaches, including Cooks and Bryans beaches, only accessible by water or a full day bushwalk. Explore the inner passage of remote Schouten Island, home to little penguins and short tailed shearwaters, before heading into the Tasman Sea towards Wineglass Bay. Look out for various hidden sea caves, blowholes and waterfalls amongst the sheer granite cliffs.
Uncover the rich history of the region, including aboriginal heritage and tales of early explorers and entrepreneurs.
After our cruise, we will make our way back to Hobart. Along the way, we will stop off at Devils Corner for a tasting and an opportunity to reflect on the incredible adventure you have been on.
We will arrive back in Hobart at approximately 5:30 PM.
