Experience the drama and magnificence of Australia’s highest sea cliffs, located on The Tasman Peninsula. Begin your day with views of Tasman Arch, Devil's Kitchen, and a walk to see Paterson's Arch and Waterfall Bay.

Next stop is the Tasmanian Devil Conservation Park where you will have around 1.5 hours to explore the beautiful park, meet friendly wallabies, kangaroos, a quoll, plus eagles, and rare hawks. You will see the Tasmanian devils at feeding time, and witness the snarling and fighting in a spectacle of devilish behaviour during the feeding. Don't miss the “Kings of the Wind” Tasmania’s only free-flight falcon show!

Your tour leads to the Port Arthur historic site, where you can enjoy a complimentary harbour cruise around the Isle of the Dead, and a guided walking tour with one of Port Arthur's expert guides. Feel the sense of isolation experienced by the convicts in this “inescapable prison”, discover the grim and violent history of the early Australian Penal system. Walk amongst the main penitentiary, see the solitary confinement cells and many more buildings in this World Heritage open air museum, during your 2 hour visit.

On the journey back to Hobart, stop at the beautiful historic township of Richmond Village with time to meander the streets and walk across Australia’s oldest bridge still in use – a convict built sandstone bridge, reported to be haunted! Last but not least, before re-entering Hobart, stop for the picturesque views of Hobart and Mt. Wellington.
