Why you'll love your holiday in Tasmania

Tasmania is like nowhere else on the planet. Compact in size the island presents constant contrasts. World heritage sites meet soaring sea cliffs. Wild and beautiful landscapes lead to cellar doors and paddock to plate goodness.

Its capital, Hobart, is flanked by wild mountains and expansive rivers with a historic waterfront and exceptional eateries tucked amongst its thoroughfares.

Launceston is Tasmania's second major city and a vibrant hub for food and wine with an emerging culture of designers and artists. Head to the Tamar Valley for excellent food and wine or hit the mountain bike trails around Derby and find out why Tasmania is the world’s latest mountain biking mecca.

The Great Eastern Drive will take you to cellar doors and oyster farms and the Freycinet National Park, where Wineglass Bay offers an enticing reason to stretch your legs, with world renowned views at the end of your climb. Further along the coast, The Bay of Fires welcomes you with a ribbon of white sandy beaches, secluded coves, and rocky outcrops.

In the west is Strahan, a historic fishing village nestled on the shores of Macquarie Harbour. It’s also the gateway to Tasmania’s Wilderness World Heritage Area. Journey down the Gordon River through pristine temperate rainforests deep into the Tasmanian wilderness.
