Scenic drives or multi-day hikes, girls’ weekend or father-son fishing adventure, family holiday or romantic escape, action or relaxation, it’s all here in Tasmania.


Five Great reasons to visit Tasmania

Breathe in the purest air and drink the world’s cleanest water

Fresh air doesn’t get any fresher than the winds that blow across Bass Strait. With much of the state still dedicated to wilderness, Tasmania offers plenty of space and opportunity to enjoy breath-taking beauty and breathe in some of the world’s freshest air.

The crystal clear waters that flow through the State are also what makes the local produce taste so great! Deliciously crisp ciders, wonderful wines, local craft beers and fabulous fresh salmon are just the tip of the menu.


Feast on fresh local produce

Speaking of world-class ciders, wines, beers and salmon, Tasmania also produces some of the world’s finest whiskies, award-winning beef, cheeses and apples. The surrounding seas serve up oysters, abalone, scallops and crayfish.

From long winery lunches and oysters shucked straight from the sea, Tasmania’s dining is served fresh and enjoyed in spectacular surrounds.


Stretch your legs on a collection of Great Walks

From the fabulous Bay of Fires to magical Maria Island, the scenic Three Capes and the iconic Overland Track to name only a few, Tasmania offers a collection of exceptional multi-day guided and accommodated walks.

From Dove Lake to Mt Field, The Nut to Wineglass Bay, there are also dozens of spectacular short walks to enjoy right across the state and that can be woven into any Tasmanian itinerary.


Play around (or two) at Australia’s best Golf Courses

Tasmania is home to some of Australia’s most highly rated golfing experiences. Barnbougle Dunes and Lost Farm, Ocean Dunes and Cape Wickham.

For the ultimate golfing getaway, combine them all with a private air-safari out of Melbourne.


Sleep in style with some of Australia’s most inviting accommodation

From historic country houses to contemporary hotels, cosy inns to luxury lodges, Tasmania offers a collection of unique and boutique accommodation to suit every travel style.

Whether it’s a room with a view or a whole island to yourself, we know just where to rest your head.
