Alternatively, you can choose to join the world-famous Gordon River Cruise (optional, at your own expense). Tonight you'll sleep once again in Strahan.
DAY 3: CRADLE MOUNTAIN TO LAUNCESTON
Around 950 metres above sea level is the World Heritage-listed Cradle Mountain-Lake St Clair National Park, where you choose a walk to suit you. With an extensive range of tracks, stroll around Dove Lake or challenge yourself with a hike to Marion’s Lookout.
A short drive takes the group through Sheffield, the ‘town of murals’, to Launceston. Tonight you'll sleep in Launceston.
DAY 4: LAUNCESTON TO BICHENO
Today the group will head towards the East Coast and the beautiful Bay of Fires. If the conditions are right, this is the perfect place for a swim.

This evening you may choose to join a viewing experience of the Little Penguins (optional at your own expense and seasonal). Tonight we'll sleep in Bicheno.
