Tasmania

Discover wild and beautiful landscapes, a rich history and a relaxed island lifestyle.

Separated from mainland Australia by the 240-kilometre stretch of Bass Strait, Tasmania is a land apart. 

Hobart, the state capital, is the second oldest city in Australia. It sits on the banks of the glassy Derwent river with the lofty peaks of Mt Wellington rising up in the background. There’s plenty to see including Salamanca Markets and the Cascade Brewery and the waterfront is a favourite spot for many.

A guided or self-drive exploration of Tasmania is a great way to get to know the island. Dense rainforests, mountain peaks and great lakes are all easily accessible by car with some world class walks and hiking on offer. It can be a few hours drive between the main attractions, but it’s well worth the effort. Other places to take in include the white-sand beach at Wineglass Bay, the world's best little town, Strahan, and the Tarkine wilderness.
