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.
There are three main tours that are offered involving mountains, beaches, forests and alpine areas, although a further four different tours are available, that go to various other scenic locations in southern Tasmania, including Bruny Island. Alternatively, a personalised tour or package of tours can be organised to suit passenger’s time frames and particular requirements. This includes the wonderful Bay of Fires and Mountain Biking areas around St Helens and Derby.
On every tour, passengers may take their own packed lunch or are given the opportunity to buy good local cuisine in the form of a high quality take-away lunch during a morning tea stop. Lunch-time is focused around specific destinations of interest (subject to weather), usually after a short walk. A car-fridge is available to keep your lunch well-chilled, including any special drinks you may wish to bring.
Tour duration is about 8.5 to 10 hours in total depending on locations visited and weather. Tasmania can experience inclement weather at any time but tours will proceed as planned unless roads are closed or there are exceptionally bad and dangerous weather conditions for driving.
