Ferry berths at Devonport at approx. 7.00am.
From Devonport we head inland to the Great Western Tiers a region of rare and diverse beauty with spectacular natural wonders. On the way we visit the delightful town of Sheffield where we can wander the streets in the “Town of Murals” where over 40 larger-than-life murals portray the regions rich heritage. Arts and crafts are among the important activities in the area and galleries and studios display high quality hand weaving, leatherwork and pottery. We then move onto the amazing Tazmazia, this is a 40 hectare fun park with some of the best mazes in the country guaranteed to get you lost. We will also enjoy lunch of scones and jam here.
From here we climb the massive Western tiers on a true MINI road, stop at an amazing lookout and then descend deep into the Mountain itself at Marakoopa Caves – We have our own special cave tour arranged. We will visit the lower chamber to be dazzled by sparkling crystals and reflective pools of stalactites. Take time to listen to the music of underground creeks and soak up the silence of abandoned river passages. The magnificent cavern known as the "Great Cathedral" is a highlight not to be missed.
Last stop before Launceston is Deloraine. This classified historic town is a major arts and crafts centre including galleries like Artifakt and Bowerbank Mill.
