Launceston to Stanley

Starting from Launceston, we’ll travel to the seaside town of Stanley, with plenty of scenic stops along the way. Visit Narawntapu National Park and learn about the rich Aboriginal heritage of the area, where artefacts can still be found along the walking trails. 

We’ll enjoy lunch together as part of the Tasmania’s Cradle to Coast Tasting Trail. You may opt to sample their local brews –perhaps a vintage pear cider at Spreyton Cider Co. After a stop in the picturesque town of Penguin, visit the historic Table Cape Lighthouse, perched atop the rocky cliff’s edge. In Stanley, climb the famous landmark The Nut, an ancient volcanic plug that juts out into the Bass Strait and offers outstanding views from the top. 

Later, wander down to the working wharf for some fresh seafood. At night, there is an optional dinner at Hursey Seafood, another part of the Tasting Trail.
