The charming island state of Tasmania is the perfect getaway for lovers of nature, history and wine. From the quaint cobblestoned streets of capital Hobart to the convict sites of Port Arthur, Tasmania’s picturesque towns and cities are compact and easy to navigate.

With no fewer than 17 National Parks, Tasmania also offers a wealth of natural charms, with its unspoiled coastal areas and World Heritage listed wilderness offering a relaxing slice of solitude in which to enjoy the island’s beauty.

Tasmania’s unique wildlife can be explored at Maria Island and Bruny Island, whilst Wineglass Bay on the east coast offers up spectacular and serene views. The delightful towns of Devonport and Launceston act as gateways to other areas of outstanding natural beauty, including Flinders Island, Liffey Falls and the Cradle Mountain-Lake St Clair National Park. Meanwhile, Strahan is a springboard from which to explore the rugged west coast of Tasmania.

With outstanding wineries also to be enjoyed in the crisp, clean air of the Coal Valley, Tasmania offers a multitude of attractive sights and activities for your holiday to Australia.
