Tour Overview

Start this engaging half-day tour by boarding your motorcoach to enjoy a picturesque drive along the Tasman Peninsula, which wows with stunning ocean views and densely forested areas full of thick green trees.

A short distance away is the Port Arthur lavender Farm. Looking out over long bay the setting is very picturesque. Enjoy a morning tea of sweet scones served with Lavender cream, fresh tea or coffee then enjoy a wander around the property and distillery. Taste the unique flavour of lavender chocolate and fudge.

Continue past lush farmland and quaint towns to reach Pirates' Bay Lookout, a magnificent vantage point renowned for featuring some of Australia's most dazzling tableaux. Taking in the scene, snap pictures of the Tasman Peninsula's dreamlike curves, cliffs and colors, glistening Pirates' Bay and glorious beach and coastal views that seem to extend to infinity.

Moving on, delight in a wine tasting from Bream Creek, an award-winning winery, accompanied by savory biscuits and cheese. Established in 1973, Bream Creek is one of Tasmania's oldest wineries.

As the journey continues, travel to Eaglehawk Neck, the slender isthmus connecting the Tasman Peninsula with mainland Tasmania. The singular way out of Port Arthur Penal Colony, this long, narrow neck was heavily patrolled from 1830-1877 by guards and ferocious dogs, part of a strict security system designed to prevent convicts from escaping. Explore the old officers' barracks and wander along the famous dog line, then marvel at the flat expanse of "tiled" rock known as the Tessellated Pavement, which looks manmade but is in fact a rare result of erosion. Then, with the incredible imagery, history and taste sensations from this wonderful journey in mind, enjoy an idyllic drive back to ship.
