Day 1: Hobart - Maria Island including Bishop & Clerk (12kms; 4-5 hours walking)
We begin our journey in Hobart, where you will meet your guides at 7:30am at the Salamanca Inn (10 Gladstone Street, Battery Point). Taking time for a brief gear check, we then board our bus and travel to the fishing port town of Triabunna.
Once there, we board our 23-metre (75-ft) luxury ketch, Lady Eugenie, and set sail across the Mercury Passage for Maria Island. This short morning sail brings us to the World Heritage-listed convict site of Darlington. Once populated with prisoners, it is now home to an array of architectural relics and abundant wildlife.
We pack our lunches and disembark, ready for the ascent of 630m high Bishop & Clerk (4 to 5 hours return). As we traverse the high cliff edge of Fossil Bay, we are afforded sweeping views toward Schouten Island and Freycinet Peninsula, a glimpse of the magnificent journey to come. Perched high atop the dolerite columns of the summit, we enjoy our lunch, with time to ponder the beauty and isolation of this unique landscape.
For those wanting a more relaxed adventure, we visit the beautiful sandstone patterns and structures of the Painted Cliffs. We can also learn more about the island’s unique Aboriginal, convict and industrial histories whilst rambling around the Darlington precinct. In the late afternoon, we retire to the comfort of our luxury yacht for pre-dinner nibbles and a delicious meal prepared by your guides.
Day 2: Maria Island - Schouten Island including Bear Hill (6kms; 3-4 hours walking)
Following a leisurely breakfast on board Lady Eugenie, we set sail, leaving Maria Island and heading north for a 4 hour journey toward the spectacular Schouten Passage. Sailing past the large sedimentary deposits of Fossil Bay and the towering dolerite columns of Bishop & Clerk, we head towards a unique geological beauty: the pink granite boulders and mountains of the Freycinet Peninsula. Along the way, we get an up-close view of an Australian Fur Seal colony that makes its home on the rocky outcrop of Isle du Phoques.
After dropping anchor, we disembark on the secluded Schouten Island. We embark on a scenic 3-hour walk, climbing to the top of Bear Hill. We can also enjoy a more leisurely afternoon relaxing on-board or at the beach, with opportunities for snorkelling and swimming.
Tonight we enjoy a luxury barefoot beach dinner on the secluded shores of Schouten Island, again featuring the finest Tasmanian food and wine.
Day 3: Schouten Island - Wineglass Bay via Cooks Beach & Mt Graham (9kms; 6-7 hours walking)
After a breakfast and a short sail we will step ashore at Cooks Beach, ready for the ascent of Mt Graham, before continuing on to meet the Lady Eugenie at Wineglass Bay. From the shores of Cooks Beach we head inland and ascend through tall Tasmanian Blue Gum forests traversing the button grass fields of the East Freycinet Saddle, dotted with seasonal wildflowers.
The trail descending from Mt Graham and Mt Freycinet takes in spectacular coastal views including the iconic Wineglass Bay, and a variety of vegetation types from button grass sedgelands to sandy coastal heath. There are ample opportunities to indulge in bird watching, photography, hunting for orchids, or simply ambling along enjoying the spectacular scenery.
Upon our arrival at stunning Wineglass Bay there is time for a refreshing swim and stroll along the white sandy beach, before boarding the Lady Eugenie, to relax with a glass of wine and take in the view. We will enjoy canapés and drinks on deck, and share our final night’s gourmet meal under a setting sun by the stunning shores of Wineglass Bay.
Day 4: Wineglass Bay - Hobart (5kms; 3 hours walking)
Our final day begins with breakfast on board Lady Eugenie. After bidding our skipper farewell, we pack all of our belongings into the 50-litre pack provided, and we take a short walk along the shores of Wineglass Bay. We can observe the busy shorebirds and towering forms of the Hazards mountain range above. We ascend gently between pink granite boulders and, taking our lunch trackside, we overlook the white sands and turquoise waters of the beautiful Wineglass Bay below. A steep descent on a well-constructed track brings us back to meet our bus, ready to take us to Hobart. Our return trip travels down Tasmania’s east coast. We visit a Coal River Valley vineyard for canapés and celebratory drinks before returning to Hobart via the Hobart Airport.
