Tasmania travel tips

Art, adventure and breathtaking beaches

Though its landmass is tiny in comparison to the rest of the country, Tasmania is home of a host of different holiday inspiration. Ranked as one of the top ten holiday locations, it's definitely a must-visit. From action packed adventure and eco-escapes in the wilderness, to cosy cottages and gourmet getaways, Tasmania is jam-packed with things to see and do. Plus, there’s plenty of luxury and boutique accommodation to ensure you’re next escape isn’t short of the finer things in life.

Hobart

If you’re overwhelmed with all the activities available, the heart of Tasmania, Hobart, is a great place to start. Borrow an ARTbike from Arts Tasmania and spend the day exploring the art precincts and galleries that dot the city and as you pedal away, be met by stunning Georgian buildings and houses that are scattered all around. And after a day of thirsty work pedalling on the bike, why not stop off at one the charming cellar doors and indulge in an afternoon sipping on cool wines and delectable foods. Before the day is done, take a stroll along the picturesque Constitution Dock and peruse the local offerings at Salamanca Market before collapsing at a penthouse at Zero Davey luxury accommodation in Tasmania. Enjoy unashamedly modern accommodation, enormous square bath, hot pink colours and waterfront view rooms. 

East Coast Tasmania

Next stop is the east coast. Beautiful crystal-clear waters hug the entrance of breathtaking Freycinet National Park with spectacular Wineglass Bay just a stone’s throw away. Enjoy an afternoon of swimming, boating and snorkelling before spotting forrester at Mount William Nation Park. Plunge yourself into the Bay of Fires; a stretch of endless white-sand beaches and stunning lichen-streaked granite shoreline borders and as the sun sets upon another day, retreat back to your private luxury accommodation in Tasmania at Ocean Retreat. Immerse yourself in the picture-postcard setting and spectacular architecture of this magical place. Clean lines draw your eyes across the gorgeous fireplace through walls of glass to the heated plunge pool and still water beyond. Float above the ocean on the pool and deck and witness sensational sunrises from the comfort of the outdoor fireplace and spacious lounge area.

Northwest Tasmania

Journey into the wilderness and observe stunning mountaintops, lush forests and rolling hills as far as the eye can see. Pack your bags and embark on the six-day Overland Track to Lake St Claire. Spot the odd wallaby and wombat, gorgeous herb meadows and grassy plains and some of the most breathtaking views known to man. Surround yourself with nothing but unspoiled natural beauty and after the expedition reward yourself by checking into Cradle Chalet luxury accommodation in Northwest Tasmania. Soak in the dramatic landscapes, clear blue skies and snow studded countryside and not to mention to the abundance of wildlife at your doorstep, all from the comfort of these deluxe spa suites and log cabins.
