Cruise the sapphire waters of the rugged coast of Tasmania and enjoy coastal walks of outstanding beauty. This tour combines an expedition cruise with walks on some of Tasmania’s best walking tracks. Guided by experienced bush-walkers, you can choose the longer day hikes, the shorter casual walks, or simply stay on board your luxury small ship and enjoy Australian hospitality. Visit the remote beauty of Port Davey, the dolerite columns at Cape Hauy, the blue gum stands at Fortescue Bay, the pink granite peaks of Freycinet and Wineglass Bay, and historic Port Arthur. After the day’s exertions, retire to the Coral Discoverer’s panoramic Explorer bar and delight in the delicious meals. A day in Hobart allows time to visit the outstanding Museum of Old and New Art. This is a walking tour without packing and unpacking for people who want to choose their level of activity each day.
John Matheson will be your tour manager. He has worked in the travel industry for over 40 years, the majority of these as a director of Calder & Lawson. He has led many overseas walking tours and has travelled extensively in Australia. He is looking forward to walking and exploring some special ‘off the beaten track places’ in this amazing land. If you have any queries about the tour, give John a call.
