This drive covers an epic road trip through towns such as Hobart and Swansea to iconic Tassie natural landmarks from Cradle Mountain, Mount Wellington, Port Arthur and Freycinet National Park. Get ready for a chance to spot the Southern Lights in all of its glory.

You will also spend a night at Curringa Farm, a genuine sheep and cropping farm.  Experience the rural farm lifestyle with farm tours and gain insights into sheep shearing and environmentally friendly farming practices. At night, find a nice spot to lie down and gaze at the glorious Milky Way.

From Victor Harbor, hop on over to Granite Island to swim with the Southern Bluefin Tuna. Decide how hands-on you want to be — you can feed them, head below the surface to the underwater viewing area, or don a wetsuit to swim alongside the tuna.

Your road trip will bring you to D’Arenberg Cube too, an architectural feat that houses both a wine cellar and restaurant. In it, head to The Blending Bench where you can have the hands-on experience of blending your own wine and taking it home at the end of the day.
