Itinerary: A Winter Week In Tasmania

Invigorating, nourishing and rich are just some of the ways to describe a Tasmanian winter holiday. To help in your winter holiday planning, we’ve crafted our ideal week in Tassie during winter below.

Day 1: Launceston

Fly into Launceston and settle into the groove of your holiday by exploring Launceston’s best attractions like the Cataract Gorge. Indulge in a morning treat at Bread and Butter or a local craft beer during the afternoon at Saint Johns Craft Beer.

Day 2: Launceston - Derby with Blue Derby Pods Ride
