Fly from UK to
When not sampling the cappuccinos and freshly baked cakes and pastries, you’ll take a day trip to the Yarra Valley, one of Australia’s most popular wine-growing regions, where you’ll spend the day sampling the wines and touring the vineyards. Back in town, don’t miss the tram ride to the seaside suburb of St Kilda, where you can ride the rollercoasters at Luna Park.
4* Puntill Apartment Hotel Little Bourke
Yarra Valley Wine Tour
The top activity here is touring the wineries and sampling a glass or two, when you’re not kicking back on the beach that is. For something a little more active, you can choose to hike the coastal pathway, looking out for wombats, koalas, kangaroos and dolphins as you go.
4* The Lindenberry at Red Hill
Famous for its golden beaches, Apollo Bay is a great place to relax, or to get out and discover the nearby Otway Ranges. If you don’t mind the drive, Apollo Bay can also be used as a base to explore the Twelve Apostles, a collection of limestone stacks jutting out from the ocean.
4.5* Captains at the Bay
Launceston’s elegant layering of convict, Georgian and Victorian architecture frames a garden city set along a ribbon-curled river, while its museums, including the Automobile Museum and Queen Victoria Museum and Art Gallery, are definitely worth a peek. Alternatively, explore the hiking trails of Cataract Gorge, an easy walk from Launceston’s central business district.
4* Country Club Tasmania
Freycinet National Park
The park is most famous for the sweep of sand that makes up Wineglass Bay (shaped like a wine glass), which you’ll have plenty of time to explore on your scenic cruise – remember to look out for dolphins and seals! There are also plenty of walks to choose from, plus scenic drives along the beaches and rugged coastline.
4* Freycinet Lodge
Wineglass Bay Scenic Cruise
Spend some time exploring the markets, hip music and foodie scenes, including the Cascade Brewery, and if you’re feeling energetic, you can drive or hike to the top of Mount Wellington for some fabulous views out to sea. Don’t miss the Museum of Old and New Art (MONA), dubbed “the world’s most far-out museum” by CNN and “a subversive adult Disneyland” by founder David Walsh.
5* Henry Jones Art Hotel
Hobart City Tour
