This itinerary is an indication of the destinations we visit and activities on offer.

Fortescue Bay & Tasman Peninsula

Gaze up at the 300 metre sea cliffs of Tasman National Park, the highest in the Southern Hemisphere, from a perfect position at sea. An area of huge natural diversity, it is possible to find Australian Fur Seals “hauling out” on the rocky shore at Tasman Island. Visit Fortescue Bay, hike the coastal Tasman Trail and kayak in Canoe Bay.

Maria Island

wombat-maria-island-coral-expeditions

The historic ruins and rugged cliffs of Maria Island National Park are home to diverse wildlife that includes Forester Kangaroos, Bennetts Wallabies, and wombats. Walk to historic Darlington Settlement, explore the ancient seabeds of the Fossil Cliffs, and marvel at the sandstone formations of the Painted Cliffs.

Freycinet Peninsula

Wineglass Bay Tasmania with Coral Expeditions

At Freycinet Peninsula, see the pink granite formations of the Hazard Mountains, and the sweeping bays fringed by Eucalypts. Join a guided hike to the Wineglass Bay beach – one of the best beaches in the world. Witness fur seals lounging on the rocks at the Ile des Phoques.

Flinders Island & the Furneaux Group

Flinders Island

Visit wild and rugged Flinders Island, and marvel at the pink and gray granite mountain ranges of Strzelecki National Park. Land at beautiful Trousers Point beach, with the possibility of enjoying two of Tasmania’s Great Short Walks at Trousers Point and Castle Rock. Visit seaside townships, discover the sad history of Wybalenna Settlement, and see relics of Flinders maritime past at the Furneaux Museum.

 

Kent Island Group

Tasmania Image Gallery

Weather permitting we visit the Kent Group of islands, Tasmania’s northernmost National Park and a marine protected area. These islands are the remains of a land bridge that once connected Tasmania with main land Australia over 10,000 years ago. The waters of Kent Island are crystal clear, with the highest diversity of fish species in Australia. On Deal Island we find the highest lighthouse in Australia, standing 305 metres above sea level, which is manned by volunteer caretakers, enjoy several walk options and swim and kayak off the beach.

Tamar River & Launceston

Spend two days cruising the scenic Tamar River – which despite its name is actually a tidal estuary over its entire length. Formed by the confluence of the North and South Esk rivers at Launceston, the river’s banks are peppered with scenic reserves, historical properties and notable vineyards. Explore the historic pilot station at Low Head, discover the charming city of Launceston, and enjoy our signature food & wine event at Josef Chromy Vineyard.

Stanley

Visit the charming seaside village of Stanley, steeped in history and famous for its delectable seafood. Make the climb or chairlift up the Stanley’s iconic landmark ‘The Nut’, the remains of an ancient volcanic plug, for spectacular 360 degree views. Later amble past the well-preserved colonial buildings and perhaps sample some of Stanley’s world famous fish and chips.

King Island

King Island is known for its fine local produce, featured in the finest restaurants all over Australia. Situated at the western entrance to the Bass Strait, its rugged coastline has been the site of over 60 known shipwrecks. Tour the island with knowledgeable local guides and learn about the island’s colourful history and current day industry. Sample a brie at the King Island Dairy tasting room, with a chance to sample King Island beef and locally caught crayfish, hosted in the rustic home of local beef farmers.

West Coast Cruising

coral-expeditons-d9-tasman-island

Home to striking mountain ranges, ancient pines and untamed rivers, the wild west coast is the heart of Tasmania’s wilderness and a true frontier. Take in the dramatic scenery during a day of cruising.

A marine reserve and part of the Tasmanian Wilderness World Heritage Area, Port Davey is truly spectacular.  Enjoy the unforgettable experience of kayaking in Bramble Cove, and explore Melaleuca, along with hiking and bird-watching.

We will spend 2-3 days here, and upon departure we will also cruise pass the remote south coast islands of Maatsuyker, home to Australia’s most southerly lighthouse.
