Are you interested in this trip?

Welcome to Australia, that vast, naturally rich land at the end of the world, shaped by deserts, mountains and, above all, oceans. Imagine wandering through Tasmania’s primary rainforests, surrounded by huge trees giving off a fresh, fruity scent. Have a drink at sunset on a rooftop in Melbourne, or in the middle of a vineyard in the gentle Yarra Valley. Watch the koalas sleepily overhead as you make your way to one of the world’s most beautiful beaches. And finally, relax in the middle of the Outback in your room, a stone’s throw from Uluru, far from the noise, leaving room for dreams and escapism…

Day 4: Freycinet National Park

On the fourth day, leave the outskirts of Hobart and begin your journey to the north of the island to discover the wilderness. Head for Freycinet National Park and the famous Wineglass Bay.

You can observe a wide variety of endemic animals, including the renowned Tasmanian devil. You can even watch whales between May and October!

Day 5: Bay of Fire

Day 9: Phillip Island

On the morning of your second day on Kangaroo Island, head a little further west into Flinders Chase National Park, a veritable sanctuary for the island’s wildlife.
