Travel north-east through Sorell to Orford for a delightful morning tea and potential to buy a wide variety of superb fresh produce for a packed lunch.
Visit the brilliant white sands of Spring Beach with an outlook to Maria Island and then travel along Wielangta Road through coastal forests to the Three Thumbs Lookout.
Return to Wielangta Road for a drive to Sandspit Picnic Area and then enjoy a short walk through the bushland and giant eucalypts in the Forest Reserve.
Continue on to Marion Bay and walk along the beach to the picturesque Long Spit reserve. This is a nice spot for eating our packed lunch and then an easy walk back to the car.

Southern 4WD Tour’s day trips depart from Hobart and return to the same pickup location/collection point.
Within several hours, passengers can experience world-class natural environments including spectacular coastal scenery and pristine alpine regions and still be back in time for a delightful dinner in Hobart.
Such locations usually require some travel on gravel roads, and your tour vehicle is ideally suited to this.
As we plan to carry a maximum of 4 customers, tours can be adjusted to cater for specific interests, wildlife and culinary delights as necessary.
All trips incorporate some outdoor walking which is generally quite easy. Customers should wear or bring appropriate outdoor clothing for Tasmania and be suitably healthy and fit to enjoy these walks.
The full daily tour fee is applicable whether there are 1, 2, 3 or 4 customers. If customers request a tour with less participants, this may be available for a reduced cost under certain conditions – however, requests for tours with less than 4 participants are approved only by special arrangement.
