Wilderness, food trails and heritage in Australia’s island state
Stunning wilderness, superb food and wine, fascinating history, and contemporary-meets-colonial charm – Australia’s island state is the complete package.
From north to south, explore magnificent national parks – famous Freycinet and Cradle Mountain-St Clair among them – with wild coastline and sheltered bays, mountains and gorges, rivers and waterfalls. Discover charming, laidback country towns separated by rolling hills, vineyards, orchards and farms. Meet local producers at cellar doors, farm gates and farmers markets. Treat yourself to time in the Tamar, Huon, Derwent and Coal River valleys. Tasmania is a haven for foodies.
Spend city time in the capital Hobart, in the island’s south, where contemporary restaurants and bars sit among heritage sandstone buildings, and unmissable Mona sits on the River Derwent. Make Tasmania’s second-biggest city Launceston your base for exploring the north. Admire perfectly preserved architecture and visit fascinating historic sites around the island.
Tasmania’s compact size makes it easy to get around and explore. It’s a road-tripper’s dream, perfect for a self-drive holiday. And it means you’re never far from whatever your holiday demands: wilderness, country charm, city lights, fresh local produce.
