Journey

Exhilarating East Coast

Many visitors to the East Coast get excited when they see another car on the road – there are that few, that people notice. Sit back, relax and enjoy the picturesque coastal scenery as the road from Orford in the south to St Helens in the far northeast grips the coast. Don’t be deceived by the distances though – what looks like a short distance may pass many sites and attractions that you will just have to stop to investigate and photograph. Head to Freycinet National Park to admire one of the world’s most pristine beaches called Wineglass Bay

Tamar Wine and Produce Trail

Launceston is the air gateway for the expansive Tamar Valley lined with grape vines that produce some of the world’s most awesome wines. The North and South Esk Rivers are as scenic as anywhere in Tasmania and exploring the wineries and produce farms are what attract most visitors. Seasonal colours are a feature especially the purple hues that envelop the rolling hills around Bridestowe Lavender Farm. Just beyond the valley near Bridport, Barnbougle Links Course is considered one of the world’s best public courses.

Mountains to Coast

Cradle Mountain with its mirror-like Dove Lake is one of Tasmania’s finest national attractions. From high up in the ranges the rural road winds its way down to Burnie and onto the far northwest of the island. Life here is very relaxed but full of extraordinary experiences for those passing through. The historic seaside fishing hamlet of Stanley makes an excellent base for exploring remote areas like Cape Grim, small seaside communities and the main city of Burnie.

Food and Wine

Ocean Fresh Seafood

Some of the world’s freshest seafood is harvested in the pristine waters surrounding Tasmania. Restaurants throughout the state proudly serve Tasmanian fresh oysters, lobsters, abalone, scallops and a dazzling selection of fish. Dine alfresco at one of several seafood punts on the Hobart foreshore, sushi restaurants in Hobart or landmark restaurants around the island state.

Prime and Pristine Produce

Tasmania’s relative isolation works in its favour as the state’s produce from the sea and land is grown in optimum conditions. Fresh air (Cape Grim in the northwest has the world’s cleanest air) and pristine rivers and seas ensures that the state’s abundant produce is of the highest quality. Savour local delights like leatherwood honey, native pepperberries, Cape Grim Wagyu beef and heirloom vegetables.

Let’s Party, Tasmanian Style

Tasmanians like to entertain and throw a party and everyone’s welcome. Continuing the green and clean theme, visitors can be assured of premium beverages such as commercial beers like Cascade and J Boag and Sons or boutique ales from Seven Sheds, Moo Brew and Cleansing Ale. Tasmania’s cool climate produces some of Australia’s best Pinot Noir, Chardonnay and Riesling wines. Using the finest local ingredients, distilleries such as Nant, Lark and Hellyers Road are producing single malt whiskies that have even captured the attention of the Scots.

Nature

Huon Valley

Visitors to Tasmania don’t have to travel far to discover pristine ancient forests and eco adventures in natural settings. Tahune Forest near Geeveston is home to the exhilarating AirWalk where adventurers can walk on a suspended trail 48m above the forest floor. Zip line and hang gliding are possibilities here too. Speed thrills on the Huon Jet which whisks thrill-seekers across the normally tranquil waters of the Huon River. Head to Bruny Island for a coastal adventure past steep cliffs to a bustling seal colony.

Mount Field National Park

This pristine park is located less than one hour’s drive from the capital Hobart. The graceful Russell Falls are accessible along a well-formed forest trail that snakes beneath giant tree ferns. In autumn, sections of the forest turn golden yellow as the native beech of Fagus tree shed their leaves and turn the forest into hues of yellow that just cry out to be photographed.

Mount Wellington

Rising 1,270m above suburban Hobart, Mount Wellington is the dominant topographic feature of the city. A road snakes its way to the summit where telecommunications equipment is houses but also where visitors can obtain picturesque views over the city and the Derwent River. In winter the rocky outcrop is often dusted with snow. There are walking trails and many adventurous visitors cycle from the summit to the lower foothills.

Cities

To Market, to Market

Hobart’s Saturday Salamanca Market is marked off on everyone’s calendar – locals and visitors as everyone wants a slice of the market action. Think fresh, unique, artisinal and seasonal at the most competitive prices. The former historic sandstone warehouses along the docks are a backdrop to all the market action which lasts from 8.30am to 3.30pm.

MONA – Motivating and Mesmerising

Hobart’s innovative Museum of New and Old Art (MONA) has changed the way many people view and appreciate art. The art stimulates the mind, challenges the senses and above all, elicits a response from all visitors. This integrated complex includes dining spaces, premium Moorilla wines, Moo Beer, stunning accommodation and landscaped gardens. Travel by catamaran from Hobart’s fishing docks across the Derwent River to MONA’s bushland setting on the harbour foreshore.

Pluck n' Pick

Become a farmer and pick your own sweet and delicious local cool climate seasonal fruit at Sorell Fruit Farm just out of the city. The season lasts from November to May. Enjoy sweet and plump strawberries and less known fruits such as tayberries, loganberries and silvanberries. Afterwards enjoy tasty berry ice cream and Devonshire teas.
