Welcome toTasmania

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 and wildlife.

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.
