Separated from mainland Australia by the 149 miles (240 km) stretch of Bass Strait, Tasmania is a place of wild and beautiful landscapes; friendly, welcoming people; a pleasant, temperate climate; wonderful wine and food; a rich history; and a relaxed island lifestyle.

Tasmania is a natural island, a land of dramatic coastlines, rugged mountains, tall forests and sparkling highland lakes. Over a third of the state is reserved in a network of National Parks and the Tasmanian Wilderness World Heritage Area, a refuge and habitat for rare plants and animals.

Tasmania offers wonderful opportunities to savor exquisite boutique wine, beer and fresh produce. Immerse yourself in therapeutic vineyard or river views and contemporary architecture while selecting award-winning sparkling wine, Riesling and Pinot Noir to match Tasmania’s freshest oysters, rock lobster and venison.

A visit to Salamanca Market, held every Saturday in Hobart, is a great introduction to some of Tasmania’s freshest produce. Rejuvenate your palate with herb vinegars, mustards, bush honeys and organic goods. Cadbury’s Chocolate factory is also a must!!!

A day trip to Port Arthur is well worth the step back in time to Australia’s beginning. Travel the Heritage Highway and feel echoes of the past in every bridge and cottage, their sandstone blocks chipped by convict chisels. Other must see destinations Freycinet National Park and Cradle Valley/ Cradle Mountain – Lake St Clair National Park.
