Today’s tour includes a visit to Bonorong Wildlife Park. Here you will have the opportunity to get up close and personal to some of Australia’s incredible wildlife including kangaroos, Cockatoos, Koalas and of course the Tasmanian devil. From here it is off to Richmond Historic Village famous for its Georgian Architecture. This afternoon you will take a trip to the top of Mount Wellington for incredible views. Tonight enjoy a welcome dinner in Hobart where you will spend the night.

Enter deep sea caves, pass through the narrow gap between the coast and ‘The Monument’ and feel the power of nature at the point where the Tasman Sea meets the might of the Southern Ocean.
