This is one island you don't want to miss.
From endless stretches of untouched wilderness to thriving urban arts centres, Tasmania has it all - and we have it all on offer.
If you’re dreaming of a Tasmanian escape, this is where you begin. Why not start off with a spot of stall-hopping at the eclectic Salamanca market in Hobart? After that, you could head out to one of Hobart’s thousands of artisanal dining establishments for an indulgent four-course meal and a local Tamar Valley wine.
If you’re feeling more like an outdoors expedition, the options are endless: hiking the Overland Track, climbing Cradle Mountain, white water rafting the Franklin River, exploring Bruny Island or whiling away the hours in Freycinet National Park. None of these will disappoint.
In Port Arthur, you can experience a World Heritage-listed convict site demonstrating life in colonial Australia firsthand. After that, there’s the Museum of New and Old Art (MONA), a world-famous collection of provocative contemporary and ancient artwork housed in a $75 million architectural gem. And if you’re still hungry, there are weeks worth of gourmet food tastings to be had over in the Huon Valley - cheese, wine, pickles, olives, chocolate, yes please!
