Edge of the World – Tall Timbers Tasmania

The Edge of the World

Tall Timbers Tasmania is situated in Smithton, a leisurely 90 minutes drive from the “Spirit of Tasmania” terminal in Devonport, 2 ½ hours from the Launceston Airport, or just over 4 hours from Tasmania’s capital of Hobart…and getting to Tall Timbers (or Tallies as it’s known locally) is half the fun. The Cradle to Coast Tasting Trail will be sure to tempt you with tasty treats such as cherries, raspberries, strawberries, hazelnuts, cheese, salmon, wine, whisky, beer and chocolate…just to name a few.

An essential element of your 2 night stay is  the Tall Timbers Tarkine Adventure Tour. After a good night’s sleep, our tour guide will pick you up from reception for a full day tour of the Tarkine Wilderness – Australia’s largest cool-climate rainforest and home to native animals, amazing birdlife and old growth forests. You will travel through prime agricultural land to the recently opened Tarkine Drive where you will visit Sumac Lookout and take a short rainforest walk at Julius River before a lavish lunch is served including more of our region’s specialty produce and a glass of Tasmanian wine or beer. Later you will visit the Edge of the World where the rainforest and the Southern Ocean collide. And if the tides are right, your guide will take the 4WD vehicle through the sand dunes for a run up the Arthur River Beach before heading back to the hotel in time for dinner. Make sure your camera is charged and ready for this wonderful award-winning tour.

Hopefully you have saved room for dinner as Tall Timbers’ Kauri Bistro specialises in local produce and favourites include Cape Grim beef, seafood and house made pizzas. Look out for the ‘Taste Tasmania’ logo signifying a dish consists of predominantly Tasmanian produce…and the good news is that it applies to almost 90% of the bistro menu!

Day 2 explore the historic fishing village of Stanley on your way to Circular Head. Allow plenty of time to explore Stanley’s history and culture. Put on your walking shoes and climb the iconic Stanley Nut, or for the more adventurous, take the chairlift. Be sure to check out the cafes and shops stocking Tassie produce and locally made timber products.
