For a tiny island at the bottom of Australia (and the world), Tassie packs a huge punch with its array of natural attractions, pristine wilderness areas and wonderfully relaxed pace of life. From dazzling beaches to majestic mountains, charming hamlets and a rich history, Tasmania is bursting with incredible scenery and experiences.

As capital cities go, Hobart is quiet and small, but it more than makes up for it with a range of experiences well worth a trek to the south. The harbour and historic Salamanca Place boast the biggest share of attractions and cuisine options, but it's probably MONA (Museum of New & Old Art) and its bizarrely eclectic collection of treasures that is the main drawcard in this part of the state. Add in heritage architecture & delicious brews at Cascade Brewery for one of Australia's finest brewery tours, and your Tassie adventure is off to a flyer.

If you’re looking for nature, Freycinet National Park is a place of incredible beauty. Located on Tasmania’s east coast, towering pink granite peaks, known as the Hazards, shadow the landscape, and below them are the calm, blue waters of Wineglass Bay. Coastal forests are ideal for hikers, while foodies can indulge in local seafood and cool climate wines.
