Tasmania Tour - 12 Day Highlight Package

Day 1 Today is Salamanca Market and what a great way to start your tour. You will find an array of stalls offering authentic Tasmanian products and produce. Enjoy the sights, sounds, flavours, action and colour of Australia’s best outdoor market. It is best seen at your own leisure as everyone has different interests and tastes. Also check out the gallery and shops at Salamanca Place just behind the market. Incredible art, unique gifts and merchandise. We depart Hobart at noon and make our way to the Coal River Farm and Puddleduck Vineyard for some local delicacies. Our next stop takes us to Richmond. We have time to explore the township, cross over the Richmond Bridge, Australia’s oldest stone span bridge still in use; and take a look at the old Evangelist Catholic Church. All back on the bus we start making our journey to New Norfolk. We arrive at the Junction Motel in time to go for a walk to the historic township at your own leisure. Join back for a delicious buffet dinner at the Junction Restaurant.

Take in the magnificent views of the Tamar Valley, distant mountains and vineyards. Tamar Valley is the largest grape growing region in Tasmania with many boutique cellar doors. You cannot leave the valley without having tasted some wine. We visit the Tamar Valley Cellar Door for a structured wine tasting and you might even like to buy a bottle for some enjoyment later on. Then we follow the Tamar River to the Tamar Island Wetland Centre.
