Untamed enchanting Australian wilderness

If there's any place on earth that's an untouched Garden of Eden, it's Tasmania's remote, temperate wilderness. With more than 40% of the island protected in reserves and National Parks, this is an island for nature lovers. Separated from mainland Australia by the Bass Strait, the country's smallest state offers a magnificent variety of landscapes, from primeval looking forests and magnificent waterfalls to spectacular coastlines of rugged cliffs and sweeping bays. In Tasmania, the air is fresh and the land untouched, making this island state a fabulous place to drive, walk and to explore.

  • Tasmania offers a magnificent variety of landscapes, from primeval looking forests and magnificent waterfalls to spectacular coastlines of rugged cliffs and sweeping bays
  • Head to Cradle Mountain for spectacular scenery, hiking and bushwalking trails
  • At Freycinet National Park you'll find Wineglass Bay and one of the world's most beautiful beaches
  • Hobart's historic waterfront is the city's main hub - wander around the famous Salamanca Market on a Saturday morning for local arts, crafts and fresh local food
  • An escorted tour is probably the most comprehensive way to see Tasmania, but a self-drive allows you the flexibility to build your own itinerary

Tasmania is one of my personal favourites as it has old fashioned charm and is less travelled than its sister locations. You can sample the delights of the beautiful National Parks, especially Freycinet National Park to walk round to the perfectly shaped Wineglass Bay.

You may even have the chance to spot the Tasmanian Devil like I did, just outside Launceston at the Tasmania Zoo, or dare to join the night Ghost Tour of the old prison at Port Arthur. Tasmania is perfect for repeat visitors to Australia.
