Tasmania's Most Alluring Experiences

Separated from mainland Australia by the choppy waters of Bass Strait, Tasmania has always enjoyed a unique spirit.

Featuring a picturesque waterfront capital in Hobart and with most major townships barely more than a few hours' drive away, the aptly-named 'Apple Isle' is a lush landscape replete with some of Australia's most absorbing locations.

From the river city of Launceston to Devonport on the northwest coast and countless little country towns in between, there's plenty more to discover outside of Hobart.

Take a tour of Wineglass Bay, sample the vineyards of Tamar Valley or simply soak up the ambiance of this fascinating destination.
