Begin your adventure with a morning pickup from Hobart and make your first stop at Richmond, one of Australia's most best-preserved Georgian villages. Take a pleasant hourlong stroll through the town and see its captivating historical buildings, including the Roman Catholic Church and Australia's oldest bridge still in use.
Next, arrive at the Tasman Peninsula and take in spectacular views of Pirates Bay and the township before you head to Eaglehawk Neck. Discover the area's many attractions as you enjoy a short walk along the charming Egg Beach. Learn the history behind the infamous Dogline, where ferocious chained dogs once guarded the peninsula's narrow entrance to prevent convicts from escaping.
Move on to visit the fantastic natural structures of Tasman Arch and the Devil's Kitchen. Walk out to sheer drops overlooking chasms, surging ocean waters, offshore islands, and sandy beaches. Continue on a guided walking tour to the Australian Convict Sites, a UNESCO World Heritage property with more than 30 restored buildings and ruins.
After you visit the site's museum and theater and take a cruise through the harbor, make a final stop at the stunning Remarkable Cave to see the panoramic views from the Maingon Bay Lookout and try to spot giant whales in the sea. Unwind in your coach after a full day as you return to Hobart.
