I'm not aware of any single-day tour that does that route. As a generalisation, one-way tours are quite uncommon in Australia. However, it's the main highway between the state's two largest cities and the main bus companies do it twice a day:

Thanks Luigi,

Actually I will stay at Launceston for 4 days in Nov and another 5 days in Hobart. Given that it take around 2.5 hours from Launceston to Hobart and the highway bus fare is around A$35, I'm looking for some day trip at the mid-point, such as Wineglass Bay, Honeymoon Bay. Starting from Launceston and drop me at Hobart.

I understand, but I know of no such one-way tour. :(

It is extremely complex and time-consuming to travel around Tasmania by public transport. However, you can get from Launceston to Bicheno and from Bicheno to Hobart with Calow's: http://www.calowscoaches.com/

And the short leg Bicheno - Coles Bay (Freycinet) - Bicheno can be done with Freycinet Connections: http://www.freycinetconnections.com.au/

However, your prospects of doing this complex journey in a single day are very slim.

Thanks again Luigi

Is there any fruit farm available in late Nov? If yes, is there any tour or public transport can be reached.

Sorell Fruit Farm is open in November. http://www.sorellfruitfarm.com/

Several bus companies go through Sorell, however, you would have to walk the last three km to the farm. Ask directions from anyone in Sorell.
