With its pristine wilderness, complex convict history and outstanding local produce, Tasmania is an island not to be missed. We’ll share stories about its intriguing history, introduce you to the local wildlife and lead your taste buds on a delicious journey.
The spectacular World Heritage-listed Tasmanian Wilderness covers one fifth of the island. Nearby, Cradle Mountain will delight outdoor enthusiasts, while on Tasmania’s east coast, Freycinet National Park, with its secluded bays, is a place of wild beauty.
Those who have gone before
Tasmania’s heritage has been strongly shaped by its convict past. In fact, the state is home to five of Australia’s 11 World Heritage-listed convict sites, including its most famous penal settlement at Port Arthur. With plenty of stories waiting to be shared, visitors will be enthralled as they see and hear history come to life.
Tamar Valley Touring
Close to the beautiful riverside city of Launceston and the former gold-mining town of Beaconsfield is the picturesque Tamar Valley. Home to some of Tasmania’s best wineries, no visit to Tasmania would be complete without a journey around this charming region.
