Day 1

Today we embark on a short getaway to the captivating Tamar Valley Region of Tasmania, known for its scenic beauty and rich heritage. Begin your day with lunch in Ross, known for its beautifully preserved colonial architecture. Ross transports visitors back in time with its cobblestone streets, convict-built sandstone buildings, and picturesque stone bridge. The town is home to a number of captivating landmarks, including the Ross Female Factory Historic Site, where you can learn about the lives of female convicts.
The next stop is Franklin House, a captivating Georgian-style mansion preserved by the National Trust Tasmania. Step into the past and embark on a self-guided tour through this elegant residence. Admire the beautifully furnished rooms, discover intriguing stories of its former inhabitants, and gain insights into the colonial lifestyle of the early settlers.
As the day winds down, settle into the tranquil ambiance of Aspect Tamar Valley Resort in Grindelwald, your home for the night. Grindelwald is a unique Swiss-inspired village nestled amidst rolling hills and vineyards. The resort offers a charming alpine experience, where you can unwind in cosy chalet-style accommodations, surrounded by breathtaking mountain vistas. Immerse yourself in the serenity of nature, take a leisurely stroll through the manicured gardens, or partake in a variety of recreational activities such as mini-golf, paddle boating, or cycling. It's a truly enchanting escape that will leave you feeling rejuvenated and at peace.

Enter a world of wonder as you observe these fascinating semi-aquatic mammals swimming, diving, and playing in specially designed enclosures. Knowledgeable guides provide valuable insights into the behaviour, biology, and conservation efforts surrounding these enchanting creatures. With their unique combination of mammalian and reptilian characteristics, platypuses are truly remarkable, and witnessing them up close is an experience that will leave you in awe of the wonders of nature.
Then continue to Seahorse World, a unique facility dedicated to the conservation and breeding of these mystical creatures. Begin your visit with a delightful lunch while overlooking the River Tamar.

Witness their delicate beauty up close, learn about their remarkable life cycle, and gain a deeper understanding of the importance of marine conservation. It's a truly immersive experience that will leave you in awe of the wonders of the sea.
Next you are able to see history come alive at the Beaconsfield Mine and Heritage Centre.
