Heading south, you'll stop in picturesque Oatlands for a bite to eat before making your way to the shores of the Derwent River in Hobart where you'll immerse yourself in local Aboriginal traditions including a Welcome to Country ceremony performed by the local palawa people. Later today, check into your hotel and enjoy an afternoon and evening at leisure.

Cross Eaglehawk Neck to the Tasman Peninsula and enjoy a cruise around the Isle of the Dead and a fascinating guided walk of Port Arthur's infamous convict prison.

This evening is yours at leisure.
