• Your guide will provide information about the flora, fauna and landscapes of Tasmania, giving you an insight into some of the country's World Heritage listed areas
• A visit to the famous MONA Museum in Hobart is included on this trip. Many of the pop-up and permanent collections are superbly indulgent, interactive and unique

Is this trip right for you?
• This is an Intrepid Basix trip. Accommodation trip is multi-share, so you'll sharing your sleeping quarters with other travellers of the same or opposite sex. If you'd prefer twin-share, then please refer to the Original version of the trip, PNTW6-O.
•The majority of meals are not included. This allows you the freedom to style your own foodie tour of Tasmania, sampling the local produce in the different regions of the island
. • Temperatures can fluctuate in Tassie, especially when you're at the top of Mount Wellington. Clothing-wise, it's important to be prepared for cold or hot weather, as well as rain or shine.

Day 1: Mount Wellington and the Central Plateau
From its unpromising beginning as a penal colony, Hobart has developed into an attractive portside town famous for its mellow pace, superb eats and one pretty out-there art gallery. MONA is her name, and we'll head there following an early morning drive to the top of Mt Wellington. After lunch it's time to hit the road for Lake Augusta. The drive, which passes through the Great Lake and Central Plateau, is a pretty one - so save your napping hours for later.

Total driving time today will take around 3 hours. Total walking distance is approximately 1km. (D)

Day 2: Lake St Clair and Queenstown
Start the day with a scenic stroll through Bronte Park and the Lake St Clair area. Not far west is the Franklin Gordon Wild Rivers National Park, where you'll get another chance for a walk - this time up to the views on offer from Donaghy's Lookout. Continuing on through the old mining town of Queenstown, keep an eye out for the legendary local footy ground. It won't be the prettiest thing you'll see on this trip, but the field's gravel surface gives a pretty good indication of how tough they breed the locals down here. Enjoy a stop off at Ocean Beach, where the winds that gust in come courtesy of Antarctica. Tonight you'll be snuggling down in the quiet seaside town of Strahan.

Total driving time takes around 3 hours. Total walking distance is approximately 4km. (B)

Day 3: The Tarkine
In the morning pass through the Henty Sand Dunes, the historic town of Zeehan and onto Corinna, the southern gateway to the Tarkine. Among the Tasmanian wilderness, the Tarkine is an untouched network of rivers and rainforest. Enjoy this World Heritage site from multiple perspectives, whether it be an optional Pieman River Cruise, exploring from the water on a kayak adventure (both at own expense), or taking a stroll along the rainforest walking tracks. As you continue your journey you pass by Savage River and Philosopher Falls, en route Travel through the gigantic Henty Sand Dunes, past the one-time silver-mining town of Zeehan and into the world of the Tarkine. Scientists have identified this area as containing Australia's largest tract of Gondwanan rainforest, and its home to a fair bunch of endangered animals too. Companies keep wanting to mine and log it… but we reckon it's pretty ace as is. While here, you'll have the option of appreciating this thick tangle of rainforest and river by foot, kayak or river cruise. There'll also be included stop-offs at Savage River and Philosopher Falls before reaching our night's destination, Cradle Mountain National Park.

Total driving time will take around 3.5 hours. Total walking distance is approximately 3km. (B/D)

Day 4: Cradle Mountain
IUndulating or flat? Long or short? Easy or hard? Whatever the walk you're after, Cradle Valley (Cradle Mountain) - and your guide - are here to help. This is one of Australia's greatest hiking grounds after all, so you shouldn't have to miss out. Opt for a leisurely stroll around Dove Lake, take on Marion's Lookout or ask about other options. Next up is a short drive to Mole Creek, where you'll have the chance to delve into its underground caves. Then pay a visit to the furry residents of the Trowunna Wildlife Sanctuary before arriving in Launceston.

Total driving time is around 3 hours. Total walking distance is approximately 6km. (B)

Day 5: : Bicheno and the Bay of Fires
Cheese and beaches in the one day? Yep, never say we don't treat you good. After stop-ins at Scottsdale and Columbia Falls, we carry on to the Pyengana cheese makers and taste some local goodness. Strangely enough, Bay of Fires wasn't named after the bright orange rocks that light up the bay, but after the fires of the local Aboriginal people that Captain Tobias Furneaux spied when sailing past on the Adventure. Despite its chilly latitude, the beach here has a tropical Queensland look about it - so don't be surprised if you end up heading in for a splash. You'll have plenty of time to warm up on the drive to Bicheno anyway. Come evening, venture out to watch Little Penguins waddling ashore.

Total driving time is around four 4 today. Total walking distance is approximately 3km. (B)

Day 6: Wineglass Bay
An early start means you'll be first to the lookout, beating the crowds and the heat for that postcard photo of Wineglass Bay. Relax on the secluded beach or choose the more challenging Mt. Amos or Hazards Beach Circuit for your morning Freycinet experience. This afternoon, make a quick stop at Kate's Berry Farm before you cross the unique and bizarre Spikey Bridge. Pass through the historic village of Richmond before arriving back into Hobart. Your Taste of Tasmania adventure ends on arrival into Hobart, as there are no more activities planned.

Total driving time takes around 3.5 hours today. Total walking distance is approximately 6km. (B)
