Tasmania - Stunning, luscious and decadent
Best known for its incredible national parks that stretch across the whole of the island, Tasmania has another story to tell. Amongst the rugged mountains and vibrant wildflowers is a booming food and drink scene, with innovative restaurants and cosy pubs paving the way for a delicious gastronomic adventure. Art and food festivals also make this little island a cultural powerhouse for your Australian holiday.
Discover natural beauty and trendy cities
Almost half of its surface is protected in national parks, but Tasmania is much more than just a haven of natural beauty. Of course the verdant pastures, pretty bays and towering peaks are still the primary draw but Australia’s smallest state is also home to a surprising diversity of hip cities, lush vineyards and adventure sports.
The capital city, Hobart, is simultaneously quaint and vibrant – a bountiful mix of old-world architecture, youthful exuberance and an unearthly backdrop. Then there’s the checklist of natural sites to enjoy too, including the flame-red granite of the Bay of Fires and the rugged Cradle Mountain.
Tasmania is growing as a food and drink destination, thanks to the unique cuisine and range of wine producers. Beer is another speciality with two large breweries as well as a spattering of artisan producers and microbreweries.
