Circle Tasmania

Wineglass Bay, Freycinet National Park, Tasmania

Kings Bridge, Cataract Gorge Reserve, Tasmania

Drive 90 minutes north to St Helens, where you can swim, surf and tuck into fresh seafood or follow the one-hour return walk along the spectacular Peron Dunes. From St Helens it’s a short drive to Binalong Bay, the gateway to the Bay of Fires. This is a beautiful region of sandy beaches flanked by orange lichen-covered granite boulders. From here, head west to the tiny riverside village of Derby. Take either the 65-kilometre (40-mile) direct route or the scenic 2.5-hour drive through the Mount Victoria Forest Reserve. Derby is home to world-class mountain biking trails as well as lovely antique and craft stores. Continue along the road to Launceston, roughly 100 kilometres (62 miles) away, which is one of Australia’s oldest cities. In town you can visit art galleries and museums including the Queen Victoria Museum and Art Gallery or the National Automobile Museum of Tasmania, while just a short walk from the city centre lies Cataract Gorge. Cross a suspension bridge above the water or ride on the world’s longest single span chairlift. Spend the night at one of Launceston’s many delightful hotels.

If you have a day to spare, take a day trip north from Launceston. Golf enthusiasts will marvel at the beautifully designed Barnbougle Dunes Golf Links, located just an hour from Launceston by car. Adventure lovers should head south east of Barnbougle to Derby, a regional town famed for its epic mountain biking trails through the hinterland. Alternatively, for something more laidback, head to Tamar Valley, which sits just north of Launceston along a calm estuary. Enjoy wines from over 20 vineyards that dot the shores of the valley.

Enjoy lunch at The Empire, a grand landmark hotel, which hints at the grandeur of Queenstown's past. Just 45 minutes drive from Queenstown sits harbour-side Strahan, the gateway to Tasmania’s World Heritage-listed wild west. Spend the afternoon kayaking on Macquarie Harbour or walk along windswept Ocean Beach, the longest beach in Tasmania. At the end of the day, dine on fresh Tasmanian seafood at View 42° Restaurant & Bar at Strahan Village hotel.
