Tasmania Feature


Top Reasons to Go to Tasmania

Beautiful Walks: Tasmania has some of Australia's best walking terrain. The stunning mountains and coastlines of Mt. Field, South West, and Franklin-Gordon Wild Rivers national parks are a mecca for serious trekkers. Less strenuous but equally stunning walks can be taken around Cradle Mountain or on Freycinet Peninsula.

Colonial Homes and Cottages: Many of the Georgian mansions and charming cottages built during Tasmania's early days as a colony have been turned into unusual and hospitable accommodation options.

Tassie Tastes: While Tasmania's unspoiled surrounds make it hiking heaven, foodies are also well served, thanks to its beautiful produce and excellent wine.
