Day 3

Tahune Airwalk
This morning we drive through the Huon Valley, home to many orchards and forests, to reach the Tahune AirWalk. The Huon Pine Walk is easily managed by most people and there is also the opportunity to walk through the tree top canopy, high above the forest floor, to the spectacular cantilevered platform at the end of the walkway. For the more adventurous, you can choose to follow the riverside trail, crossing two suspension bridges across the rushing waters of the Picton and Huon Rivers. Retracing your steps, enjoy lunch at the Kermandie Hotel overlooking the tranquil waters of Port Huon. As you approach Hobart, Mount Nelson Lookout offers spectacular views over the Derwent River and Hobart. This evening is at your leisure, allowing you to sample the local cuisine at one of the many cafés or restaurants.

Arthur River Cruise, Edge of the World
Visit the Edge of the World and its wild, rugged coastline. Breathe in the fresh air while cruising on the Arthur River on board the MV George Robinson, a replica vessel built in 1985 in the style of a Sydney Ferry. This river meanders through some of the most rugged and pristine country in northwest Tasmania. Take a guided walk with a passionate local along the edge of the river, learning about the flora and fauna of this wilderness which has been relatively undisturbed for over 650 years, whilst your BBQ lunch is prepared. After cruising back, we will return to our hotel to freshen up before dinner.

Smithton – Cradle Mountain
Departing Smithton, head through more plantations of Blue Gum—this successful renewable industry harvests every 12-15 years for paper production. Travel to Cradle Mountain
National Park to board the shuttle bus to Dove Lake, at the foot of Cradle Mountain. Be inspired by the spectacular mountain scenery of jagged peaks and hear about pioneer Gustav
Weindorfer, who lobbied to have the area set aside as a National Park. Walk part or all of the Dove Lake Walk (3 km boardwalk, 3 km gravel track) or the boardwalk to Pencil Pine Waterfalls. A regular shuttle bus pass is included, so you can return to National Park Headquarters when you wish. Later this afternoon, check into our overnight accommodation before dinner.

afternoon stop at the Burnie Makers’ Workshop where you can try your hand at making paper with the support of experienced and informative paper makers.

Wynyard to Somerset for our overnight stay.

Wynyard – Freycinet via Deloraine
Returning to Devonport, home of the Spirit of Tasmania, continue on to Railton, where the township has added more than 100 imaginative, hand shaped topiary characters to its main street area. At Deloraine, visit the Yarns community art project. This magnificent silk tapestry depicts the four seasons, which over 300 local artists have embroidered, appliquéd, cross-stitched, woven and quilted!
