This tour begins in Hobart with an arrival day. The next day allows enough time for a short stroll through the city before you begin the cycle to Richmond. You will arrive early to spend some time exploring this historic small town. The next day's destination is Oxford on the east coast which you reach after cycling over some hills. Here we recommend an additional night to visit Maria Island. The entire island is National Park – no cars allowed.
You continue to Swansea along the coast with beautiful water views and the following day you cycle to the tourist town of Bicheno. It can be reached via the Highway or via a shortcut cycling directly on the beach and crossing a lagoon by boat. The next day can be spent in famous Freycinet National Park for a walk to the Wineglass Bay, voted one of the best beaches in the world!
The next day offers a pleasant ride to the east coast capital of St Helens. In the morning you may visit a nearby animal park where you can pet a Tasmanian devil with a bit of luck. Next morning you take the bus to Launceston or Hobart at 8.30 am (weekdays only). If you continue on our north east tour, you can spend the following day exploring the stunning surrounding coast including the famous Bay of Fires.
