NEW WALK - FIRST DEPARTURE ON WEDNESDAY 06 JANUARY 2021
From the streets of our capital city, find yourself on a secluded Tasman Peninsula beach by mid-morning. With soaring sea cliffs in view, we’ll venture aboard our private eco-cruise to Denman’s Cove. Stepping ashore, we’re fortunate to have access to rare sections of the Three Capes Track. Come late afternoon, arrive at Crescent Lodge and settle in for an evening with unrivalled views and three Tasmanian courses.
Day two features the Arthur’s Peak summit and diversity of wild landscapes from rainforest to coastal heath, leading to Fortescue Bay. From here, it’s back to Hobart where there’s time to explore the waterfront before settling into historic Hadley’s. Next morning, travel in style by ferry to MONA and explore our acclaimed underground museum of old and new art.
From the wilderness to urban culture, the Three Capes Long Weekend is the superb pairing of Tasmania’s nature and culture.
Prices from $1,795 pp
Approximately 5 hours walking
From central Hobart, we venture down to the Tasman Peninsula. After a visit to Remarkable Cave, we lace up our boots to summit Mount Brown, rewarding with views across the peninsula’s rugged coastline.
Back down at sea level explore the enormous dunes of Crescent Bay and perhaps take a refreshing dip in the crystal waters. We then hop aboard our private eco-cruise, soaking in a rare perspective of Port Arthur Historic Site and some of the highest sea cliffs in the Southern Hemisphere.
A short wade ashore from the boats signals your arrival at Denman’s Cove. We’re a two-hour walk to our lodging, deep inside Tasman National Park. Crescent Lodge is perched high, with far stretching views across Crescent Bay to Cape Raoul, with guest rooms spilling into the gully. Arrive ready to settle in with a warm shower as your guides-come-chefs prepare a three-course feast of local fare. Post dinner, take your Tassie pinot to a quiet deck for your own private sunset.
Approximately 7 hours walking
Wake to the silence of Crescent Lodge and wander down to the dining room for a hearty breakfast served with stunning views. Today, we’ll be walking through diverse ecosystems including exposed coastal heathlands and surprise pockets of rainforest. We’ll summit Mount Fortescue, the peninsula’s highest peak at 490 metres above sea level, enjoying lunch with leafy-framed ocean views overlooking The Monument. By mid-afternoon, we’ll step onto the white sands of Fortescue Bay. This usually calls for dropping your pack, kicking off boots and taking a celebratory dive!
We then return to Hobart and raise glasses of sparkling over canapes to mark our shared experience. Tonight, the evening is yours to discover the cultural, heritage and culinary delights of Hobart, before settling in for a well-earned sleep at Hadley's Orient Hotel.
In the morning, head down to meet your guide and enjoy a relaxed breakfast in your hotel. At 10:15am, you will travel independently in style on the MONA ferry, departing from Brooke Street Pier. Your ticket includes entry to the Posh Pit, where drinks and nibbles are included. Cruise the River Derwent with commanding views of the imposing massif, kunanyi/Mount Wellington. Continue on beneath the infamous Tasman Bridge straddled between the Royal Botanical Gardens and Bellerive foreshore, before stepping off at MONA. Explore the mysterious and subversive MONA at your own curious leisure.
You’ll return by boat at 3:00pm, again in the Posh Pit, where you can enjoy a final glass of Tasmanian wine or beer. The trip ends at 3:30 at Brooke St Pier.
