Tasmania highlights

The Bay of Fires
Bursting with colour, the Bay of Fires hosts beaches dotted with giant boulders cloaked in striking orange moss and sapphire waters for diving, swimming and snorkelling.
Cutting edge art at MONA
The Museum of Old and New Art offers a feast for the senses. Accompanying the impressive gallery is fine dining, a library, cinema and even an on site winery.
Tassie’s fresh seafood
The Seafood Seduction cruise delivers on its promise. The onboard guides catch rock lobster, oysters and more, before preparing them there and then for your feasting pleasure.
Cascade Brewery
Set in a majestic Gothic building, Australia’s oldest brewery has been pumping out liquid gold since 1832. Visitors can take a tour or enjoy fresh pours straight from the tap. Cheers!
Cradle Mountain National Park
Hiking is the best way to explore the natural beauty of this area, where rugged mountain ranges reflect in the waters of glacial Lake St Clair and snowy peaks appear in winter.
Whitewater rafting on the Derwent River
The Derwent River is a prime spot for adrenalin-packed whitewater rafting. Even beginners can join in on the easier runs, while the pros can try out the fast-moving waters to test their skills.
Barnbougle, The Dunes Golf Course
Barnbougle Golf is a hole-in-one when it comes to superbly located courses. Swing your way around rolling dunes and manicured greens, all to the sounds of crashing waves.
Salamanca Market
Buzzing Salamanca Market is the perfect picnic basket filler. Every Saturday the marketplace brims with fresh Tassie produce, home baked treats and handcrafted goodies.
Historic Port Arthur
This former convict settlement commands attention with its stone ruins and waterfront position. Learn the history on a guided walk, or take the eerie ghost tour if you dare!
Freycinet National Park
Pink granite cliffs and sparkling turquoise seas are staples of the magnificent Freycinet National Park. You can swim, hike or cruise this piece of paradise.

Laidback Island of Incredible Landscapes

Perhaps most famous for the deceptively cute-looking Tasmanian devil, tranquil Tassie, as it’s affectionately known, boasts some of Australia’s most impressive landscapes.

Most 5-star Tasmanian hotels are in its historic capital Hobart, a beautiful city cascading down slopes towards the sea. Its highest points offer far-reaching views towards the bay’s lush islands and headlands. The furthest headland shelters Port Arthur, a former convict colony touted as Australia’s answer to Alcatraz.

Just outside the capital is Richmond, home of Australia’s oldest bridge. To the north-east is Swansea, across Great Oyster Bay from the Freycinet Peninsula, site of stunning Wineglass Bay.

Bicheno has a sweeping, sandy beach, while St Helens beach further north is protected by land outcrops that are birdlife havens. To its west Launceston features the large Queen Victoria Museum and beautiful Cataract Gorge. It is also the gateway to the north coast resorts where many cheap hotels in Tasmania are located and available to book on Booking.com.

One such resort is Devonport, the arrival point for ferries from Melbourne. Burnie also has a port, and is linked by a coastal road to Stanley whose narrow promontory ends in a rock called The Nut. South is wonderful Cradle Mountain-Lake St Clair National Park, and to its west is the sleepy town of Strahan whose backdrop is the mountains covering south-western Tasmania.
