The Blooming Tasmania & Launceston Flower Show Longer Break runs from 19 – 29 September 2017. A fully guided tour with 11 days of amazing garden visits, 4 star accommodation, return airfares and most meals.
Our “Blooming Tasmania” adventure offers Tasmania’s unique garden attractions punctuated by its amazing scenery, fascinating history and incredible food and wine experiences..
As an island set in the Southern Ocean immediately south of the Australian continent, Tasmania enjoys one of the world’s most productive climates.
From the arrival of the first European settlers early in the nineteenth century, incredible gardens have been developed in this southern paradise. Most plants can be grown here with relative ease, especially those of cool temperate origin.
Within this relatively small island lies an enormous diversity of micro-climates, including rugged mountains and forests, coastal plains and river valleys. Most regions enjoy fertile soils, reliable rainfall, and none of the extremes of temperature that limit many gardens around the world.
Every visitor to Tasmania will have their own preferences so we will seek to offer a diverse range of options for your particular enjoyment.
You will see a number of gardens as well as the Blooming Tasmania garden show in Launceston and experience a variety of tours and walks and visits to specialist growers and nurseries.
A glimpse of our itinerary
DAY 9: Wednesday 27 September
We will travel via Sorell Causeway and Midway Point for a full day tour to visit the World Heritage-listed Port Arthur Historic Site on the Tasman Peninsula.
Port Arthur is Australia’s most intact and evocative convict site, and an essential destination on our tour of Tasmania. The Historic Site has over 30 buildings, ruins and restored period homes and is set in 40 hectares of landscaped grounds.
We will allow plenty of time to fully experience all that Port Arthur has to offer and enjoy a guided walk and short cruise to the Isle of the Dead, with time to explore the ruins or the restored gardens.
