Tour Summary

Our Tantalising Tasmania Small Group Tour and Conference in February 2021 provides you with the opportunity to experience one of the most spectacular and seldom visited parts of Australia.

With a group size guaranteed to not exceed 40 people – this is truly a small group tour the likes of which we’ve been running internationally and domestically for more than 25 years and built our reputation upon.

As with all Amaco conferences, your 10-day itinerary will blend our accredited medical and pharma education seamlessly with a range of specially curated VIP activities, dining experiences, and tours – all hosted by a group of carefully selected local guides and hosts.

Beginning in the northern Tasmanian city of Launceston, you’ll explore the north-western and western regions of Tasmania before ending in Hobart, the state capital.

As always, we’ll kick off the itinerary with a Welcome Networking Dinner allowing participants to renew friendships and acquaint themselves with fellow travellers and the Amaco hosts.

Tasmania has a well-earned reputation for serving some of the finest food in Australia and on this tour, you’ll get to experience everything from fine dining degustation menus through to casual pub-style tucker. We pride ourselves on being able to cater to all dietary requirements so please don’t feel that you’ll be missing out if you’re not normally the foodie-type.

Your accredited education begins on the first morning after which we begin the transfer to Cradle Mountain Lodge. Along the way, the journey will be broken with a stop in Sheffield to see the amazing murals that local artists have created on the sides of buildings showing traditional Tasmanian life.

From there it’s a short transfer to Cradle Mountain Lodge – widely considered one of Australia’s iconic wilderness experiences. The lodge is located on the edge of the spectacular World Heritage-listed Cradle Mountain-Lake St Claire National Park, one of Tasmania’s premier wilderness regions.

This lodge showcases the best Cradle Mountain has to offer with warm hospitality, sensational local food, and wine, indulgent spa treatments, breathtaking scenery, and magnificent wilderness surrounds.

The Lodge Rangers will lead you on a private guided walk to Dove Lake – which is circled by a six-kilometre track that offers one of Tasmania’s best walks. Along the way, you will learn about the Aboriginal history of Tasmania and bush tucker plants, the European settlement of the island, and the geological features around the lake.

From Cradle Valley you’ll journey to the quaint fishing village of Strahan – stopping along the way at Hogarth Falls where an easy stroll will lead you to a picturesque waterfall. The cool temperate rainforest here is filled with leatherwood, sassafras, and myrtle. One further stop – this time at family-owned and operated Morrison’s Huon Pine Sawmill is planned.

After some time to settle into your accommodation in Strahan, it will be onto the Risby Cove Gallery for a private after-hours tour led by their curator. This local gem boasts an eclectic collection of works including paintings, photography, jewellery, ceramics, glass, and textiles and features some of Tasmania’s leading artists.

A relaxing afternoon cruise along the Gordan River is also part of our itinerary while in the region. Take in the beauty and ruggedness of this UNESCO World Heritage area as you first cross Macquarie Harbour to Hells Gates and then journey along the Gordon River. Along the way, explore Heritage Landing and Sarah Island, wander amongst the largest remaining tract of temperate rainforest on the planet and stare up at trees that are thousands of years old.

Hobart is the final destination for our itinerary and our home for the last four nights is the award-winning Hotel Grand Chancellor. Every Amaco guest is guaranteed to love the amazing and every changing harbour view rooms we’ve secured. From here, you’ll explore the region and visit some of the key attractions.

As with much of this itinerary – we’ve worked to elevate that standard tourist experience to something more befitting the Amaco way. Take for example the private tour we’ve organised of Shene Estate in Pontville where the owner and Head Distiller (and his dog) will lead you on a fascinating tour covering not just the stunning historical property but also the secrets to his award-winning distillery.

Since it opened in 2011, MONA – the Museum of Old and New Art remains the largest privately funded museum in the Southern Hemisphere and is home to ancient, modern, and contemporary art from the collection of owner David Walsh. With so much to see, we’ve arranged a private introduction for the group and then allowed you free time to explore the things that interest you most.

From MONA, you’ll head to Moorilla – Tasmania’s oldest vineyard for a private tour of the vines and barrel room.

Rounding out the Tantalising Tasmania itinerary is a full-day excursion to the Tasman Peninsula where you’ll have the opportunity to explore Devils Kitchen and Devils Arch beginning first with an unforgettable Tasman Island Wilderness Cruise along the spectacular coastline between Port Arthur and Eaglehawk Neck.

It’s then onto the Port Arthur Historic Site where a specialist local guide will recount powerful stories of convicts, soldiers, free settlers and their families.

Uncompromising cleaning and hygiene practices are already a feature of every Amaco tour and this hasn’t changed in the Covid-normal world. If anything, we’re more fastidious now and ensure that additional cleaning, sanitising, and hygiene practices have been implemented in all areas with particular emphasis on high touch points and hard surfaces.

All coaches, vessels, planes, vehicles, and accommodation we will be using are fully equipped with all that you will need. Hand sanitising stations will be available in all public areas and personal hygiene kits will also be provided where appropriate.

While some of you may have seen advertising for similar tours to this destination – some at the same or a slightly lower price – they simply don’t compare to what we’re offering.

Never before has a single tour offered so many specially arranged activities or had the number of VIP enhancements that we’ve secured.

We believe that we’ve put together the most remarkable itinerary and certainly hope that you can join us as we travel to Tasmania in February 2021.

Remember… this tour is limited to no more than 40 people. Places will be allocated in the order that completed registration forms and deposits are received.

Upon conclusion of lunch, it’s a short walk to Brooke Street Pier to board your luxury catamaran for the transfer to MONA (Museum of Old and New Art). Ride in style down the Derwent River in the Posh Pit, with canapes, wine, and private access to the bow of the ship.

Overnight: Hotel Grand Chancellor Hobart

Included Meals: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner

Day 8 (19 Feb 2021)Port Arthur

Depart Hobart and enjoy the changing scenery as you travel to the Tasman Peninsula and explore the beautiful geological features of the peninsula such as Devils Kitchen and Devils Arch.

Upon arrival at Port Arthur, commence your day with an unforgettable three-hour Tasman Island wilderness cruise along the spectacular coastline between Port Arthur and Eaglehawk Neck in southern Tasmania.

The cruise travels beneath the highest vertical sea cliffs in the Southern Hemisphere at Cape Pillar, where you’ll get up close of personal with waterfalls, rock formations, archways, and deep-sea caves only accessible by your custom-built boat.

The coastline is part of the Tasman National Park, home to a variety of wildlife including hundreds of seals, migrating whales, and abundant sea birds in their thousands. At any time of year, you’re likely to see the feeding frenzy of diving gannets, albatross and sea eagles wheeling on the wind, cliff-nesting cormorants and peregrine falcons, or a pod of playful dolphins surfing the bow wave of the boat.

The vessel, which Amaco has privately chartered for the tour, is ideal for viewing the spectacular coastline and wildlife of the Tasman Peninsula. Covered open-air tiered seating means an excellent all-round view and connection with the environment. The boats are safe, comfortable, and gentle on the environment due to their fuel efficiency and low emission operation.

At the end of the cruise, enjoy a shared platter lunch at the Magistrates House, a beautiful historic home and a unique opportunity to experience fine dining in the World heritage site of Port Arthur.

Following lunch, begin your tour with your specialist local guide of the Port Arthur Historic Site, a key part of the colonial system of convict discipline. Remote, harsh, with no chance of escape, this was the perfect destination for hardened, repeat offenders. But Port Arthur was much more than a prison. As you walk within the Site on your privately guided tour, the powerful, personal stories of convicts, soldiers, free settlers, and their families will reveal themselves to you. Port Arthur’s tale is told in many ways. It will stay with you long after you have departed.

Return to Hobart in the late afternoon for some downtime before meeting your group for an informal 3-course dinner with local beers and wines at a local seafood tavern, the Drunken Admiral.

Overnight: Hotel Grand Chancellor Hobart

Included Meals: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner

Day 9 (20 Feb 2021)Hobart

You’re in for a treat this morning! Located in historic Salamanca Place, next to the Hobart waterfront, the Salamanca Market comes alive with over 300 stallholders, every Saturday.

Join your guide and walk down to the market place to explore Tasmania’s biggest selection of locally made products including hand-worked glass, Tasmanian timbers, stylish clothing, bespoke jewellery, organic produce, artworks, bath and body care, ceramics, leather goods, handcrafted cheeses, breads, and wines and spirits.

After a morning amongst the ambience, enjoy a long lunch at The Ball and Chain situated in the heart of historic Salamanca Place. Construction of both Salamanca Place and The Ball and Chain commenced at the instigation of Governor Arthur in 1830 and took chain gangs of convicts some 18 months to build.

An amazing amount of land reclamation around the waterfront was undertaken, and even today none of the splendid buildings constructed during that time has ever shown fault with its foundations. Today, the Ball and Chain is a popular, modern eating house, specialising in steaks, local seafood, and game dishes, all cooked on an authentic charcoal grill.

You’ll have the afternoon free to do your own thing before we gather together again this evening for a special Networking Farewell Dinner at Old Wharf. Standing in the historical location of former jetties, piers, homes, and taverns from where, since the 1800s colourful traders, merchandisers, exporters, and explorers have shipped Tassie’s renowned produce across the globe.

Chef Simon Pockran and his team have acknowledged this history by creating a menu that celebrates and explores Tasmania’s traditional family dishes. Reimagined and refined, his menu gives the nod to our past while championing celebrated produce and boutique Tasmania growers.

Upon conclusion of tonight’s festivities, walk back to your hotel.

Overnight: Hotel Grand Chancellor Hobart

Included Meals: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner

Day 10 (21 Feb 2021)Depart Hobart

The Tantalising Tasmania itinerary ends today. Participants will be transferred to the airport for their onward flights.

Included Meals: Breakfast

Travel Options & Extensions

Given everything that has happened in the travel industry of late – you’re correct to be vigilant about where you spend your travel dollar.

Amaco is not only a member of AFTA, the Australian Federation of Travel Agents but we are also ATAS Travel Accredited.

This means we have met strict industry standards and criteria. Only the best industry agents achieve this accreditation meaning that you can travel with us knowing that you’re in safe and capable hands.

With almost 25 years’ experience in planning and running conferences, we understand that participants often want to add additional travel destinations and adventures either before or after the all-inclusive packages we provide.

Other operators might discourage you from doing this.

Sometimes, it’s because of the added complexity it creates and at other times they’ll try to talk you out of it simply because they don’t have capable or experienced consultants with the breadth and depth of the knowledge that consultants we employ have.

We encourage all participants to make the most of the time away. This might mean departing earlier than the rest of the group and visiting other places before meeting up with the main group at the start of the tour or staying on at the conclusion and doing some additional travel.

Either way – our consultants are perfectly positioned to assist you with making these arrangements and will do all the hard work for you – seamlessly combining your personalised itinerary with the group program.

CAN I BOOK MY OWN FLIGHTS?

Yes… not a problem. We understand that people may have a preferred Travel Agent they want to use and we don’t have any issues with you doing so. We’ll advise you of suggested arrival and departure times to allow you to make use of our group transfers.

That said though… we do have experiences consultants who are ready and waiting to help… even if that means just giving you a comparison price. There is nothing wrong with some competition.

We do ask for a copy of your itinerary so that we can double-check it to ensure that it fits with our program and group itinerary.

One word of warning, however, when booking flights independently – as the non-ticketing Agent we’re not notified of any changes or cancellations to your booking. If anything changes with your booking, it will be up to your agent to contact you and then for you to contact us.

It is also worth pointing out that even though we’ll have experienced staff members escorting the group during the conference, as the non-ticketing Agent we are unable to make contact or deal with the airline on your behalf.

CAN I CHOOSE MY OWN CLASS OF TRAVEL?

We used to include flights to and from the conference in our travel package but found that in many cases the fares were more expensive than the best available daily fares or were not applicable for people who were looking to extend pre or post the main conference travel dates.

We also felt it was unfair on you, as a participant, to unknowingly pay a premium for a more flexible group fare when you were already happy to commit to attending the conference.

By not including the airfare in the package, you are able to work with one of our experienced and knowledgeable Travel Consultants to arrange flights on any airline, and from any destination depending on your preferences…. including the class of travel.

CAN I VISIT OTHER DESTINATIONS BEFORE OR AFTER THE CONFERENCE?

In short….. Yes!

You’re encouraged to talk to our experienced travel consultants to learn more about the options open to you either before or after the conference itineraries. We will gladly work with you to put together a personalised itinerary that can include as much or as little as you want.

We believe it is important for your own peace of mind to know that our consultants are all employed directly by Amaco Small Group Tours and are located in our office.

We don’t subcontract out the travel to a third party which means you can be comfortable knowing that whatever arrangements you make through Amaco will be tied together with the conference program to make one continuous, seamless travel itinerary. We’ll put as much care and effort into your extension as we put into the planning of the conference.

Whether it is simply booking some airport transfers with a couple of nights accommodation through to more elaborate arrangements we are perfectly positioned to incorporate any individual travel plans into your overall conference itinerary.

Email or call us so we can put together your perfect itinerary.

WHAT ABOUT TRAVEL INSURANCE?

Much has been said about the value of travel insurance – especially given the broad-based exclusion policies many underwriters have in place which protects them from claims resulting from pandemics and epidemics.

Amaco provides travel insurance from some of the most reputable companies in the industry including Cover-More, SureSave and AussieTravelCover – and always at competitive rates. Over the last few months, there have been a number of enhancements to the policies available which many of the credit card policies do not include.

Please call our office and we will gladly work with you to obtain a quote from any or all of our insurance suppliers.

Education

Amaco is an Accredited Education Provider for the Royal Australian College of General Practitioners (RACGP) and the Australian College of Rural & Remote Medicine.

Each conference we run includes an education syllabus that assists GP’s, pharmacists and health professionals to improve the quality of care they provide to patients and customers while at the same time providing them the opportunity to travel to and experience new and exciting destinations.

Our conference will allow delegates the opportunity to earn CPD points based on the content and time in session. As has been the case with past conferences, we will work closely with participants affiliated with other associations to ensure that they receive maximum recognition for attending the conference.

The content of the education sessions will be relevant to GPs, Medical Specialists, Pharmacists, Dentists, Nurses and other health providers. We encourage all attendees to register for the conference sessions.

The Education Committee for the Tantilising Tasmania Conference will be selected in the fourth quarter of 2020 with final conference topics to be chosen based on the feedback from our previous conference attendees and with input from the RACGP, ACRRM, and Medical Journals. Suitable speakers will be approached based on the topics selected.

Subject to final accreditation, the Tantalising Tasmania Conference will include an Accredited Education Activity (formerly Category 1 Activity) affording delegates the opportunity to earn up to 40 points.

ACRRM members can also expect the education program to be accredited and to earn CPD points. RACGP and ACRRM accreditation will be applied for under the triennium 2020 to 2022.

As has been the case in the past, Amaco will work with pharmacy bodies and those affiliated with other associations to ensure that they receive maximum recognition for attending the conference.

We welcome applications from potential presenters and encourage anyone interested to contact us to obtain further information.
