More About Tasmania

Tasmania may be a state of Australia, but it has cultures and traditions of its own. A sparsely populated island, you get a tranquil, isolated feel during your stay allowing you to explore unspoilt terrain and find hidden treasures.

December to March is the best time to go to Tasmania, as the summer season is full of activities such as watersports, mountain biking, hiking or even just relaxing in the sun.

Tasmania travel guide

Tasmania is a sparsely populated group of islands with untouched landscapes and hidden treasures, just waiting to be discovered.

Affectionately known as 'Tassie', Tasmania has vast, uninhabited slabs of wilderness, beautiful beaches, and a thriving arts scene. Across the whole area the natural treasures live up to their billing, with cycling, bushwalking, kayaking and rafting just some of the exciting activities you can do during your stay.

Travelling in Tasmania

Self-drive is the most practical way to get the best out of Tasmania. Remember to drive on the left, and carry a valid driving licence at all times. In rural areas, fuel may not be available past 6pm so this is something to bear in mind when planning your day.

Public bus services are available in the larger cities of Hobart and Launceton, operating between 6am and midnight. Buses with shorter service hours operate in smaller towns, including Devonport where the ferry from Australia docks.

Things to see in Tasmania

If you are out for an adventure, Tasmania will not disappoint you. On land, you can go bushwalking, cycling or hiking and explore the wonders of the local wildlife. On water, test your kayaking skills, experience the thrill of rafting or even have a go at surfing. If heights are your thing, there are plenty of opportunities for rock climbing and even hang gliding!

Tasmania is well suited to growing crops, due to the rich soil, pure air and clean water available. This makes Tasmania a top destination for foodies, as all cuisine is locally sourced. Try some of the local food at farmers markets, pubs and restaurants.

No trip to Tasmania is complete without picking up some souvenirs and presents for your friends and family back home. The island is a bargain hunter's heaven with many antique stores and markets. Hobart is the best place to go as the market is set on the beautiful waterfront and offers everything from clothing to tasty local treats.

    On the ship
    • First we took the ferry during the day from Melbourne to Devonport, we had chairs which can change for a sleep, we bought things in the shop, have meal. To come back, we took a cabin with 4 beds, had meal and went to sleep, but my daughter was afraid and we didn't sleep well.
