Welcome to Tasmania, one of Australia’s must-see travel destinations. With a range of spectacular national parks, World Heritage listed convict relics, and unique wildlife, this Australian island state is one of the most beautifully diverse destinations on earth.
Separated from the mainland by the Bass Strait, Tasmania’s relative isolation has kept its environment in pristine condition. The landscape is strewn with charming historical towns, secluded beaches, iconic wind farms and fascinating convict ruins. Marvel at the oldest bridge in Australia and discover the orange-hued granite boulders on the delightful east coast. Get up close and personal with a Tasmanian Devil, our very own carnivorous marsupial, or don a wetsuit and go surfing in the uncrowded waters of the Southern Ocean.
Asides from its natural beauty, one of the greatest things about Tasmania is its top-notch food and wine scene. Restaurants here are known for serving delicious, locally sourced cuisine, and some of Australia’s finest wines are produced in Tasmanian vineyards. Nicknamed the Apple Isle for its abundance of orchards, Tasmania has become a favourite destination for foodies, with travellers able to enjoy a range of culinary delights in both the city and the countryside.
No matter where your itinerary takes you, every corner of Tasmania is fascinating in its own unique way. Navigate the southern coastline’s rugged waterways and visit sacred Aboriginal sites with ancient rock carvings. Take in some of the of the most amazing scenery Australia has to offer from the top of Mount Wellington in Hobart, or get lost in the untamed Tasmanian wilderness in the North West. Whatever you choose to do, the time to visit this majestic corner of the world is now.
