East Coast & Port Arthur Self Guided Cycle

Tasmania's East Coast offers access to some of the best experiences on offer on the island state and there are few better ways to take in all the highlights than by travelling by bike at your own pace on this comprehensive self guided cycling trip. Starting in Launceston and finishing in Hobart ensures you don't miss any of our spectacular highlights. After a thorough briefing from our knowledgeable local guide, you may choose to begin this self guided trip with a ride along a section of the Trail of the Tin Dragon driving route, which delves into the regions tin mining history and the arrival of the local Chinese population. Out of the saddle, stop to taste cheese in Pyengana and take an optional walk to Tasmania's highest waterfall, St Columbus Falls, before getting back on the bike for a spectacular coastal ride via the sleepy villages of St Helens and Bicheno to Coles Bay, gateway to the Freycinet National Park. In Freycinet there is time to explore this special part of the east coast on foot or by or kayak. The trip rolls on to Maria Island, where you can discover remnants of Tasmania's convict past and the island's extraordinary beauty on foot or a 22km circuit ride, before returning to the mainland and continuing your two wheeled journey towards the Tasman Peninsula for even more only-in-Tasmania coastal views as well as the chance to delve into the island's penal history at the historic settlement of Port Arthur.

ItineraryExpand
Day 1
Today you will start your tour in the historic city of Launceston. After a short briefing and demonstration of your hire gear you will be transferred to Scottsdale via the picturesque countryside and forests of North East Tasmania. From here you saddle up and embark upon the first stage of your journey, travelling through beautiful agricultural heartlands before choosing to either stay on the Tasman Highway or get onto the 'rail trail'. The well maintained rail trail is for the more adventurous, taking you off road through extensive forested scenery before joining up again with the main road just outside of Branxholm. After passing through Derby, famous for its tin mining history, great flood of 1929, and now for it's epic mountain biking trails, you continue to cycle through spectacularly lush and fertile valleys and rainforests before reaching the famous Weldborough Hotel. Here you can rest your legs, have a shower and choose from the extensive range of local micro brewery beverages that this quaint pub has to offer. Cycle distance: 54 km Estimated cycle times: Via Rail Trail 4 hrs | Via Tasman Hwy 3 hrs 40 mins
Day 2
Starting the day with a hearty breakfast provided by your hosts, you once more jump aboard your trusty steel horse and head off towards the East Coast. The first recommended side trip today is at the magical Weldborough Pass; an easy and informative stroll through remnant Gondwanan rainforest. Next continue up the hill before cresting the ridge line and taking in your first glimpse of the East Coast. Enjoy an exhilarating descent to the flats of the Pyengana Valley. Here you can stop at the famous Pyengana cheese factory and enjoy a delicious ice cream whilst watching the happy cows being milked. A great option is to continue along the C428 to one of Tassie's great short walks: St Columbus Falls which is Tasmania's highest waterfall. Getting back onto the Tasman highway the vegetation starts to change and you will continue to see tantalising glimpses of the ocean. Passing below the Blue Tier you cycle through Goshen before starting the gentle descent to the East Coast's game fishing capital St Helens. Tonight you will be staying at Kellraine units. You can choose from the town's range of restaurants and cafes where you can sample some of the sumptuous local seafood. Cycle distance: 44 km Estimated cycle times: 3 hrs plus side trips
Day 3
Set out today with the sun on your back and the wind in your hair. The cycling today is relatively easy as you follow the glorious coastline, stopping at your leisure at the numerous little bays and uncrowded, wide sandy beaches for which the area is renowned. Passing through the seaside town of Scamander you will likely see locals fishing for bream from the bridge and you can stop for a drink or just to take in the serenity. Past Scamander is Henderson's lagoon, a treat for bird watchers and with over seven kilometres of well marked trails. Further down the coast you can visit the sensationally situated Iron House Brewery where you can enjoy a light lunch and tastings of different beers made with local spring water. Moving on you pass through the Chain of Lagoons before choosing whether to take the unsealed Rosedale Road to visit the magnificent waterhole at Douglas Apsley National Park, or continuing on along the coast road for the final 3km of the day's ride to arrive at Bicheno by the Bay, your accommodation for the evening. Cycle distance: 77 km Estimated cycle times: 4 hrs 15 mins
Day 4
Today provides a change of pace with only a short ride along the coast before reaching Coles Bay, gateway to the world famous Freycinet National Park home of the incomparable Wineglass bay. Here you have the option of enjoying some of the extensive array of beautiful walks the park has to offer, taking it easy on the beach or enjoying a kayaking session on the crystal clear waters of Oyster Bay with the multi award winning Freycinet Adventures kayak company. After a day in the National Park you can relax in your accommodation at the Iluka Holiday Park or take a short stroll down to the Coles Bay pub for your evening meal. You could also visit Tombolo gourmet pizza restaurant, or even take some cheese and olives down to the beach for a peaceful and scenic waterfront dinner. Cycle Distance: 38 km Estimated cycle times: 2 hrs Walking times: From 45 mins to all day
Day 5
Feeling refreshed you will re-ride the Coles Bay Road before turning south again on the Tasman Highway. This morning you pass through premier wine growing country where you can stop at a number of vineyards to enjoy tastings or a well deserved coffee. From Devils Corner Vineyard you have a short and steep incline to the peak of Cherry Tree Hill this route provides spectacular views back towards the magnificent pink granite peaks of the Hazards range and Great Oyster Bay. From here the route turns inland, undulating through eucalypt forest then descending again through a variety of rural landscapes and coastal panoramas. At approximately the 33km mark after your decent from Cherry Tree Hill you come to Glen Gala Road on the left. This peaceful country road takes you on a short detour over Swan River, bringing you out again to the Tasman Highway at Gala Estate Vineyard. Tonight your lodging will be close to the water at the Swansea Holiday Park. Cycle distance: 57 km Estimated cycle times: 3-4 hrs
Day 6
Having reached the halfway point of your cycle adventure today you are treated to one of the most spectacular sections of the Tasman Highway. You will be rewarded with view after stunning view of our unspoilt coastline. Ample opportunities exist for stopping at the numerous sandy beaches and sheltered rocky coves that are dotted along the coast. Look out for the famous 'Spiky Bridge', one of many remnants of Tasmania's convict past. Passing through quaint rural hamlets as you approach Swanport the scenery changes again to picturesque country fields and gentle rolling hills. Looking south-east as you approach Triabunna you may catch glimpses of the silhouette of the renowned National Park of Maria Island. Triabunna is the only opportunity you will have to stock up on supplies for your stay in the National Park. Here you head to the jetty and wait to embark upon the Maria Island ferry at 3:30pm. Crossing the Mercury Passage takes about half an hour and provides you with an appreciation of how far you have come as you gaze north along Tasmania's coastline. Upon arriving at Darlington it is only a short walk to the campground where you can set up your comfortable camp for the next two nights. Cycle distance: 51 km Estimated cycle times: 2 hrs 45 mins
Day 7
It is worth getting up before dawn and making your way to the Fossil Cliffs to watch a Tasman Sea sunrise before starting your adventures for the day ahead. If you are keen to do some more cycling you have the opportunity to ride the 22km of well defined trails plus some of the circuit routes across the Island. Or you can choose from one of the many walks the National Park has to offer including the astounding Painted Cliffs or the sublime peak of Bishop and Clerk. If snorkelling is your thing then the Darlington jetty is situated within the island's marine reserve and you can swim amongst the shoals of different fish species found within the crystal clear waters. The history of Maria Island is fascinatingly diverse and hours can easily be spent simply wandering through the ruins and restored buildings of Darlington learning of their past. Spending a second night at the Maria Island campground gives you time to stroll through the myriad open grassy pastures and marvel at the abundance of wildlife which populates the island... keep your eye out for the cheeky Tasmanian Devils that sometimes scamper through camp! Cycle distance: Your choice Walking time: 1.5 hrs to 7 hrs
Day 8
The last morning on Maria Island gives you a short while to take in the park's serenity before jumping aboard the 10am ferry and returning once more to the mainland. This day's cycle takes you around Prosser Bay to Orford before heading inland following the Prosser River. Surrounded by Eucalypt woodland you wind your way up from the coast then enter the outskirts of the agricultural town of Buckland, with its historic church and bushland gardens both attractions are well worth a visit. Your accommodation this evening will be in the historic township of Sorell. Cycle distance: 62 km Estimated cycle time: 4 hrs
Day 9
Today you head off towards the incomparable Tasman Peninsula. From Dodges Ferry you follow the Carlton River Road through Connellys Marsh before joining Arthur Hwy and crossing the bridge at Dunalley Bay which joins the peninsula to the main island. Passing along forested roads and past secluded little fishing towns you work your way south towards the isthmus of Eaglehawk Neck. The awe inspiring scene which greets you here is stunning in any weather with its dramatic view across to Pirates Bay. The area's rich and sometimes dark history provides plenty to ponder upon as you peddle along the coastal road. This area has a smorgasbord of choices for you to enjoy: Visit the historic Port Arthur site and learn of Tasmania's convict beginnings, or choose to do one of the many short walks from a surging sea cave to strolling above the highest sea cliffs in the southern hemisphere. Stop at the Federation Chocolate factory for tastings, or visit the 'Tasmanian Devil Unzoo' to see some of our precious native animals up close. You are spoilt for choice in terms of what to do in this remarkable part of the island! Tonight's accommodation is at the Port Arthur Holiday Park. Cycle Distance: 69 km Estimated cycle times: 4.5 hrs
Day 10
You will have the best part of the morning to explore the Port Arthur area before being collected from your accommodation at approximately 12:00 pm. You will then be transferred to Hobart where you can say goodbye to your trusty bike and enjoy this vibrant southern city. During your time in Hobart consider a visit to Mt Wellington for sensational views or a rainforest amble alpine wilderness only half an hour from the bustle of Hobart's CBD. Alternatively you can opt for a cultural infusion and visit the internationally renowned MONA (Museum of Old & New Art). You can take the MONA Ferry from Brooke Street Pier, which takes you to MONA up the Derwent River with spectacular views of beautiful Hobart backed by the grand dolerite spires of Mt Wellington a great way to get your bearings of the city. The peaceful Botanical Gardens are just a short walk from Hobart city centre... Or just relax by the waterfront at Salamanca Place with a well deserved drink, congratulate yourself on all you have achieved over the last ten days, and watch the afternoon pass by!
