Head to the heart of Tasmania on this bespoke three-day experience. This is no ordinary tour. On this relaxed epicurean and informative adventure you will gain deeper insight into what makes Tasmania unique. Walk through ancient forest with an ecologist, discover the history of the Southern Highlands with an historian, enjoy a chef-prepared fireside meal then unravel the mystery of the glittering universe on a Night Sky Tour with an astronomer. Warm up by the crackling fire at Rathmore Farm, the cosy historic accommodation where we will stay during the experience. A sheep property settled in 1828, this is authentic country living at its best and the ideal base to explore the Central Highlands. Hearty and delicious gourmet dinners are included with Tasmanian wine or delicious homemade non-alcoholic beverages enjoyed by the fireside.
