Not actually the sleepy retirees hub that it is sometimes referred to, Tasmania is a thriving state of Australia and home to incredible natural wonders, people, food and culture. There is plenty to see and do and it is guaranteed that you will come home from your Tasmania tour with a renewed sense of understanding for Australia’s only non-mainland state.
Enjoy a tour of Tasmania
From forests to mountains and islands in between, Tasmania is the location to go to if you’re looking to get in touch with nature. Tours often take in the wildlife of Russell Falls and Mount Field Park, Cradle Mountain and Bruny Island and while you may need to pack some winter woollies, you don’t need to do much more than enjoy it all if you’re part of an organised tour to these magnificent parts of the world.
If you start off your Tasmania tour in Hobart, it makes sense to explore the city for its beauty and charm first – perhaps before hopping down to Port Arthur for a historical tour and a trail around Richmond, one of the quaintest places in the world.
An East Coast tour of Tasmania will see you take in Launceston too, with the highlights of Wineglass Bay included and the Bay of Fires if you like, just to keep the balance right.
On the West Coast of Tasmania, tours will trek you through the fantastic sights of Cradle Mountain and you can meet some penguins and Tassie devils too. Don’t forget to check in at the Tasmania Wildlife Sanctuary and take on some adventuring if you feel the urge. Tasmania is a terrific place to tour, year round.
