12:30pm – Have lunch on the coast then enjoy a few hours exploring around Eddystone Point and the Lighthouse. This is our first opportunity to really relax and get a feel for the true wilderness of this coastline.

Day 2Lets get walking!

8am – Drive to The Gardens and walk the most stunning section of coast, rock pools, orange lichen on rocks reflecting on the azure blue of the ocean. Pearly white sands, oh it’s just lovely! This truly is a Bay of Fires area and we meander along a 3km section enjoy and morning tea on the beach before heading back again again. After lunch and very short drive we set out on the 8km Skeleton Bay circuit walk, where you start on open forest roads and trails allowing you to chat and not have to watch your feet. We then hit the coast and wiggle our way along exploring both coastal forest and rocky outcrops along another excellent section of Tasmanian coastline.
4pm – We will enjoy a leisurely yoga/stretch session to ease out any sore muscles.
6pm – Dinner
8pm – A well deserved wine and cheese tasting

Our personalised tours are social, fun and accommodating and you’ll get around in the comfort of our chauffeured bus, eat lots of healthy home cooked food, and sleep like logs in twin share rooms.
