Known as the natural state, Tasmania
is lauded as the ideal temperate island with its dramatic
coastlines, quaint villages and expansive wilderness areas.
Encircled by the Southern Ocean, Tasman Sea
and Bass Strait, the next stop south from Tasmania is Antarctica,
some 2,000 kilometres away. Whilst the island appears small
on the map, it is large and diverse enough to keep any visitor
captivated. Travel at a leisurely pace and allow lots of extra
time for stopping by the wayside to admire the views, terrain
North, south, east or west, this is the ideal
place to relax and rejuvenate. As well as an abundance of
natural treasures, you'll be intrigued by Tasmania's colourful
history. From the troubled convict era of infamous Port Arthur
to the graceful Victorian streetscapes of Launceston the past
is brought to life. In the Tasmanian Midlands, along the Heritage
Highway you can even feel echoes of the past in every bridge
and cottage, built by the hands of convicts.
On your travels, indulge yourself in the diversity
of gourmet delights. The many cellar door and form gate experiences
to be had simply can't be missed, and you'll find yourself
perpetually welcomed by friendly locals. Whatever tantalizes
your tastebuds, you'll find it here - the freshest fish and
fruit, the best berries and beers and the world class wines.
Immerse yourself in the Tasmania Experience
and you’ll leave the island entirely refreshed.
