There’s a little island at the world’s edge that many consider to be one of the most desirable regions on earth. Why so? Because Tasmania is like nowhere else on the planet. It’s a place where Tasmanian devils roam, where paddock-to-plate means heirloom tomatoes were foraged for that morning and over 1,000 peaks beg to be climbed.
In Tasmania, everything’s close. Cruise a desolate South West harbour by day and be sipping local Pinot in our vibrant capital come nightfall. Welcome Sydney to Hobart yachts, the same day delving into our conflicted past in search of convict ancestors. Expect the unordinary in this special part of Australia.
We love homegrown and homemade goodness. Some of us make world-class cheeses using traditional methods. Others cultivate internationally-renowned museums on their home turf (thanks for Mona, David Walsh) while others are considered the Grandfather of Australian whisky. Little wonder Bill Lark has been inducted into the Whisky Hall of Fame in London. We breed fiercely proud and creative islanders - their passion will capture your heart and soul.
With four distinct seasons, Tasmania has an ever changing persona. UNESCO World Heritage sites cosy up beside the highest sea cliffs in the Southern Hemisphere. The world’s best boutique hotel shares the same neighbourhood with lazy beachside campsites. Folk enjoy freshly shucked oysters knee-deep in salty waters while others take theirs natural in swanky waterfront cocktail bars.
It’s all right here, waiting to be uncovered in Tasmania.
