Itinerary


Day 1 Welcome to Launceston

Your holiday begins in Launceston on the Tamar River. Tasmania’s ‘northern capital’ is a historic city with many well-preserved Georgian and Victorian buildings. Get to know your Travel Director and fellow travellers at a Welcome Reception.

Day 2 Launceston – Bicheno

Bridestowe Lavender Estate is your first stop today. It has been growing lavender since 1922 when a London perfumer planted lavender seeds from the French Alps on his family estate which he named after his wife’s birthplace in England. Try some of Bridestowe’s lavender products and treat yourself to their famous lavender ice-cream. Later, stop at the Legerwood Carved Memorial Trees, planted in honour of fallen WWI soldiers. After a lunchtime stop at St. Helens, follow the picturesque east coast south to Bicheno. This evening you may like to take an optional tour to see Bicheno’s wild penguin colony as they emerge from the ocean for the night, or even take a tour to see Tassie Devils.
