Tasmania by Land & Sea January 2018

This tour showcases the wild beauty and remarkable heritage of Tasmania. Beginning in Launceston you will explore the dramatic West Coast of Tasmania before boarding a small ship for a seven night cruise from Hobart along the Southern coast and on to the Freycinet Peninsula.  For people interested in Tasmanian flora and fauna, the environment and rare and endangered species, this tour will appeal. Many of the visits will be accompanied by a parks and wildlife ranger.  There will be time to uncover a little of Hobart’s eclectic creativity and to taste gourmet produce and boutique cool climate wines. A behind the scenes tour of the Port Arthur historic site will be of interest to those wanting to know more of the heritage of Tasmania. Photographers will have many opportunities to capture the pristine landscapes including an early morning guided walk to Wineglass Bay lookout. Some of you will have already sailed with Coral Expeditions and enjoyed the intimate comfort of a classic small ship with no more than 72 guests. You will know that the ship’s crew, expedition team and guest lecturers enhance the experience and give you an in-depth perspective of a destination they love.
