The Tasman, A Luxury Collection Hotel

Tasmania’s natural, culinary and creative treasures are within easy reach at award-winning hotel, The Tasman. Anchored to the waterfront precinct and in the embrace of kunanyi/Mount Wellington, Australia’s first Luxury Collection hotel sits comfortably between Hobart’s city centre, the picturesque Derwent harbour and MONA ferry terminal, and the iconic Salamanca and Battery Point neighbourhoods. In a showcase of understated elegance by design, The Tasman is an architectural symphony; an overture of 1840s Georgian heritage, building to 1940s Art Deco and a 2020s modern extension finale. Original sandstone contrasts spectacularly with a glass-encased prism of modern architecture.

Heritage Studio Suites

At The Tasman, each of the 152 rooms and suites is a page in the hotel’s rich architectural story, which spans from the 1840s to the present day. Heritage studio suites showcase original Georgian details including vaulted doors and restored fireplaces in some rooms. The in-room experience is intended to be an extension of the Tasmanian culture and landscape, highlighting local materials such as sandstone and native woods. Bath amenities feature Tasmanian ingredients crafted by the local brand Beauty and the Bees and the Australian brand Grown Alchemist, and beverage options highlight exclusive local collaborations with Lark Distillery and Moo Brew.

Peppina

For Peppina chef and Tasmanian local Massimo Mele, the secret to the best ingredients is all about who you know. His commitment to ethically sourced produce has led him to foster deep relationships with local producers, whose seasonal ingredients inspire the dishes coming out of Peppina's lively open kitchen. Born and raised in Naples, Mele's Italian heritage is on display throughout his ever-changing menu.

Mary Mary

A passion for pairing native botanicals and the finest local libations has led to an intriguing cocktail bar and spirits library at Mary Mary. Classic cocktails are transformed with ingredients such as local Braeburn apples and Pigface, a native succulent from the coast. Curated spirits from local distilleries round out the menu — expect Tasmanian gin or a house whisky blend in signature cocktails.

Day 1: Hobart — Crescent Lodge

Approximately 2 hours walking


In addition to the standard pick-ups and drop-offs in Hobart (please refer to the FAQ section for specific details), we will also collect guests from The Tasman Hotel between 8.50 and 9am. Once everyone is gathered, we will meet our guides for a walk briefing at 164 Murray St, Hobart at 9.30am.

Upon arrival at Stewarts Bay, we will make our way down to the jetty where a private boat will be waiting to depart for our short trip across to Denman’s Cove at 1.15pm. Cruising with views back to Port Arthur, aside from the possible seal and dolphin spotting, some of the highest dolerite cliffs in the Southern Hemisphere come into view, an indication of the drama to come.

A short wade ashore from the boat signals your arrival at Denman’s Cove, where we’ll fuel you with local produce for lunch in preparation for a gentle walk through coastal woodland to the rocky refuge of Surveyors Cove. At this point, if the Southern Ocean calls, head for a dip before a gradual climb up to the lodge.

Crescent Lodge is perched high with far-stretching views across Crescent Bay to Cape Raoul, and guest rooms spilling into the gully. Settle in with a warm shower as your guides-come-chefs prepare a three-course feast of local fare. Post dinner, settle into the couch with a glass of Tasmanian Pinot noir.

Day 2: Crescent Lodge — Cape Pillar Lodge

Approximately 5 hours walking

Wake to the silence of Crescent Lodge and wander down to the stunning dining room for a hearty breakfast to start the day. From here, head due south with views across Safety Cove and Maingon Bay to Bruny Island. Climbing Arthurs Peak, 300 metres above sea level, is worth the oceanic vista. In these parts, White-Bellied Sea Eagles soar in the thermal currents, so be sure to look skyward. Lunch isn’t far away, an easy downhill descent to south-facing cliffs where pelagic seabirds are plenty — albatross, petrels and gannets. Here, there’s nothing but ocean between you and Antarctica.

Following lunch, skirt the edge of Tornado Ridge before heading south towards Cape Pillar Lodge, your base for the next two nights. Your pace might quicken in the knowledge there is a massage, facial or relaxation bath on offer at Cape Pillar Lodge.

Day 3: Cape Pillar Lodge return

Approximately 6 hours walking (optional)

This is the most adventurous day of your journey. Today you’ll walk through silver gum forest (Eucalyptus Tenuiramis), a species endemic to the area, out to the highest seacliffs in the Southern Hemisphere. There’s little wonder Cape Pillar has been afforded other names — Hurricane Heath and Desolation Gully. A side trip to The Blade is a must, with staggering views across to Tasman Island.

Lunch is enjoyed at Chasm Lookout — with Tasman Island’s weathered lighthouse in sight. It’s then a direct return journey home to Cape Pillar Lodge where the relaxation pavilion, three-course goodness and ocean views await. By now, walking strangers might just have become firm friends. Unlace the boots, read a book with the sea breeze in your toes.

Those with a penchant for pampering can forego today’s walk and spend the day at Cape Pillar Lodge. Enjoy one of our relaxing treatments ranging from 30 to 60 minutes and immerse yourself in the enchanting surrounds.

Cape Hauy

Day 4: Cape Pillar Lodge — Fortescue Bay

Approximately 6 hours walking (Cape Hauy side trip optional)

Time to farewell Cape Pillar's forest haven. From here you’ll cross Retakunna Creek (local indigenous dialect for creaking trees) en route to a patch of rainforest. Breathe it in — lush mosses, ferns and vibrant greens. Your next mission is the peninsula’s highest peak, Mount Fortescue, climbing some 490 metres above sea level. Enjoy lunch with leafy-framed ocean views overlooking The Monument.

Take the side trip and enjoy the majesty of Cape Hauy — or ease into the final cliff-walk descent onto the cool white sands of Fortescue Bay. This is your chance to drop the pack and sink your toes in pristine sands or perhaps take a celebratory dive into the crystal clear waves.

We will then travel back to Hobart. We return to our walker base for a glass of celebratory bubbles giving you time to move your gear from backpacks to your bags. Then, our friendly bus driver will take you and your bags to The Tasman for two nights of recovery, relaxation and indulgence.
