Wander streets lined with sandstone buildings that now serve as showplaces for the best of Tasmania’s fine art and crafts.

Travel the east Coast today via Orford, where the Church of St John has a beautiful 14th Century stained glass window. Nearby walk the coast track from Shelley Beach to Spring Beach or just take in the coastal views. Continue on to Triabunna, a former whaling base, before arriving at Swansea, a great spot for lunch.

DAY 05: Freycinet National Park to Launceston (263 km)

Travel north through Coles Bay and Bicheno. You can either take the coast road from Chain of Lagoons to Falmouth, or the inland road via St Marys and Elephant Pass, where you can stop for delicious pancakes. Then continue north to St Helens, perhaps with a detour to the beautiful Binalong Bay. Near Pyengana take a walk at St Columba Falls and buy some local gourmet cheese.

Continue north to Scottsdale on the Tasman Highway and onto Launceston, Tasmania’s second largest city, nestled in the hilly country where the Tamar, North Esk and South Esk rivers meet. Only 10 minutes from the city centre is the magnificent Cataract Gorge, here almost vertical cliffs line the banks of the South Esk River as it enters the Tamar.
