ITINERARY

Show All Info

Today, you will be met by the tour guide at the nominated pick up point in Hobart and transferred to where the walking tour begins (please refer to Important Information for further details).

Tucked between the Remarkable Caves and Port Arthur, the Crescent Bay and Mount Brown track plays host to the most spectacular beach on the Tasman Peninsula. In addition to the enormous dunes and crystal-clear waters of Crescent Bay, the hike to the summit of Mount Brown offers hikers vast panoramic views of the peninsulas rugged coastline.


 Begin todays walk at the Remarkable Caves carpark. The first part of the hike crosses a series of sand dunes covered in coastal heath vegetation, if you are lucky you may spot an echidna. This section offers westerly views back towards Cape Raoul. The track then opens out into a gaping cavity known as Maingon Blowhole. The track then heads inland onto the lower knolls of Mount Brown where a series of cairns will direct your ascent. The walk up to the summit is moderately steep, with views over Cape Pillar, Tasman Island, Arthurs Peak and further south to cape Raoul and Bruny Island. Once back on the main track we reach Crescent Bay. This beach is incredibly beautiful and often sparsely populated. After the walk, head back to the accommodation to relax or take the opportunity to visit the Port Arthur Historic Site (not included).


After the day’s walk, head back to the accommodation for well-earned pre-dinner nibbles followed by a fabulous two-course meal prepared by the guides.

Overnight: Three Capes & Tasman Lodge or Stewarts Bay Lodge
Meals included: Lunch;Dinner

After breakfast and lunch-making begin the walk out to Cape Raoul. Offering some of the most spectacular coastal lookouts in Tasmania, Cape Raoul is an excellent return day walk within the Tasman National Park. With only a few steep sections, the walk is a comfortable walk allowing ample time to relax and enjoy the expansive views of the surrounding Tasman Peninsular and further south to Bruny Island.

The bushland opens up with spectacular views of the incredible dolerite cliffs of the Tasman National Park. Cape Raoul is just beyond the lower plateau to the east. A short distance to the right is another open section of the cliff top allowing you a stunning view down to Shipstern Bluff, beyond to Bruny Island and Tasmania’s southern coast. From these lookouts, you may have an encounter with the intense winds the Capes are famous for (some of the strongest recorded winds in Australia).

Once on the plateau, the landscape changes to stunning coastal banksia scrub and provides glimpses of the northern coastline including Mt Brown, Arthurs Peak and Mt Fortescue. Situated a little further east, are the impressive 300 metre high cliffs of Cape Pillar. This evening enjoy nibbles, followed by a two course dinner prepared by your guides.

Overnight: Three Capes & Tasman Lodge or Stewarts Bay Lodge
Meals included: Breakfast;Lunch;Dinner

The Cape Hauy trail follows the rocky coastline. As the trail climbs, the She Oaks and Banksias of the lower coastline give way to dry sclerophyll forest. The walk starts at a beautiful cove - there are some steep sections with stairs that you need to navigate in both directions. There is a steep climb at the start (and end of the walk), but once at the top of the first saddle extensive panoramic views stretch far north past the Forester coast to Maria Island and south, detailing the ridges of Cape Pillar.

Towards the end the track you will follow the cliffs edge, providing thrilling views. The final segment of the trail, before reaching a large plateau, is quite steep and narrow. Once at the end you are able to clearly view the exceptional rock formations of the Candlestick and Totem Pole, large columns of dolerite rocking out of the ocean. The terrain is quite rocky and there are ups and downs but it is a magnificent start to the tour if you are prepared.

This evening the group will have the opportunity to enjoy dinner at a local restaurant (not included).

Overnight: Three Capes & Tasman Lodge or Stewarts Bay Lodge
Meals included: Breakfast;Lunch

This morning head out on the 3-hour award winning Wilderness Cruise. Make sure you dress warmly for the cruise – warm jackets, scarves, beanies and gloves are recommended.

The boat gets very close to the spectacular rock formations along the coastline and stops regularly for easy viewing and photography. See seals, albatross, white-bellied sea eagles and enjoy an exhilarating ride on this fantastic cruise. You will return on dry land by 1pm where you will enjoy lunch before your guide transfers you back to Hobart for a 5:30pm arrival (approximately).
