Come spend the long weekend with us. You’ll begin in downtown Hobart, whisked from the city on our private vessel Wild Thing, to the peninsula wilds. In the days to follow, you’ll walk out to Cape Raoul on the Three Capes Track and explore hidden pockets of wilderness on the trails of the Tasman Peninsula. Your only task is to sit back with a Tasmanian wine and enjoy the views from our new off-the-grid beach camp. Each evening, our knowledgeable guides transition to lodge hosts, preparing chef-designed meals brimming with local ingredients. Wake to views stretching out to Tasman Island from your door and by day we’ll guide you along Tasman’s epic coastline. The flora, unexpected native animal meetings and long table dinners with new and old friends set this long weekend apart. We top it off with a wine tasting and lunch at an award-winning vineyard on the way home.
A long weekend that will last long after you leave us...

Approximately 3-4 hours walking
A few minutes into the journey we’ll arrive at Brooke Street Pier. Here we have two options, If weather permits, we’ll board our private boat, Wild Thing. The 90-minute cruise down to Nubeena is packed with spectacular coastal sites and some cracking stories to share en route. For those who are yet to find their sea legs, or in the case of bad weather, we also have the option of travelling to Nubeena by bus. From Nubeena, we will all meet back up and head to the Remarkable Caves trailhead by bus. There’s no need to carry anything other than a lightweight day pack for this 3-4 hour walk. Larger packs can stay behind.
As its name suggest, this is a truly remarkable place, with ancient sandstone tunnel carved by the sea. Walking through sand dunes covered in coastal heath, we continue onto Mt Brown where the climb is well worth every step. On a clear day, sweeping views take in Cape Raoul, Cape Pillar and Tasman Island. From here we walk down to Crescent Bay before joining up with our private track and continuing through to Tasman Camp.
Back at camp, enjoy a hot rainwater shower followed by relaxing deck time with a Tasmanian wine or cool drink while the guides get busy preparing your meal. Then settle into our dining room for delicious fare and to celebrate the shared journey of day one. On a clear night, don’t forget to look up. The stars here are glorious. Then, rest your head in our comfy private tents.
Approximately 5-6 hours walking
Wake to the blissful silence of the Tasmanian wilderness and the aroma of freshly brewed coffee. We enjoy a relaxed morning before lacing our boots for the 5-6 hour Cape Raoul return walk.
We’ll be transported to the trail head with lunch in our daypacks to begin the walk. The walk begins with a gentle climb through eucalypt forest. Then gradually, with each step the grand Tasman Sea begins to reveal itself. It feels like the edge of the world! We’ll then descend down to Cape Raoul lookout. Listen carefully and you might hear the seals way down below.
On a clear day, we’ll settle in for lunch here but if the weather isn’t so kind, we have tranquil locations along the track that are sheltered. The return walk is equally special with its varied perspective. There are plenty of chances for photo stops along the way.
A short transfer will return us to camp, where you can enjoy a couple of restful hours taking in the views or pulling out a good book to read in the fresh Tasmanian air. After time on your private deck, we’ll gather for another hearty dinner in the dining room to share tall Cape Raoul stories.
Approximately 3 hours walking
Wake to another hot breakfast prepared by your guides – fuelling for your final day on the Tasman Peninsula.
We start today’s walk at Tasman Arch, gently climbing around coastal tracks with sedimentary rock formations and stunning views out to the ocean. After 2.3kms, we get to the Waterfall Bay, where we see a waterfall cascading over the seacliffs into the ocean. Here the group has to option to turn around or continue to Waterfall Bluff (an additional 4kms).
By 1pm, we’ll be back on the bus heading to a well-known vineyard for our all-inclusive celebratory lunch and wine tasting.
After this, it’s an easy drive back to the city for hotel transfers. We can drop guests at the airport between 4:15-4:30pm and then we’ll arrive into Hobart at approximately 4:45pm.
Then again, you may enjoy the Tasman Long Weekend so much you don’t hop on the bus back to Hobart! There is plenty more to discover from cosy oceanside stays to whiskies, lavender, uncrowded beaches and more.
