    What to Expect
    After pickup from your Hobart hotel travel to the beautiful historic village of Richmond famous for its colonial architecture. The stone buildings now house teashops, galleries, craft shops and museums. You'll also see Richmond Bridge, Australia's oldest.

    Continue to the Tasman Peninsula, stopping to enjoy the view from Pirates Bay Lookout. A stop is also made in Doo Town, a quaint seaside village famous for its quirky house names. From here, gaze out over Tasman Arch, one of the many unusual rock formations found in the Tasman National Park, and see what’s cooking at Devil's Kitchen. This is some of Australia's most stunning coastal scenery. Take a walk to Waterfall Bay to enjoy spectacular views from the clifftops.

    The highlight of the day is the opportunity to check out Tasmania’s convict heritage at Port Arthur. There’s no rush with plenty of time to see the sights on a guided walking tour and harbour cruise. Hear about the harsh conditions that the earliest European residents of Tasmania experienced after being sent across the world.

    Before returning to Hobart, a stop is at Federation Chocolate Factory to taste delicious hand-made chocolates – a very sweet end to a great day of exploring some of Tasmania most beautiful rugged scenery and fascinating convict history.
