Travel to Tasmania, Australia
We’ve all heard of Tasmania, and yet it remains one of Australia’s least-visited states. This is a mistake! Over the years its reputation has deservedly grown, but it’s still possible to experience its beautiful views, flourishing natural habitats, and indigenous historical sites without hordes of tourists alongside you.
Perhaps it’s Tasmania’s location as an island off the south coast of mainland Australia that means many visitors don’t make the trip, or maybe its lack of famous sights. Instead, Tasmania is rugged and untamed. Don’t miss out on the likes of the Bay of Fires, one of the most beautiful coastal hikes in the world and a great spot for scuba diving, picture-postcard Wineglass Bay with its pristine beach, and Port Arthur, which offers a fascinating insight into Tasmania’s convict history. Holding it all together is capital city Hobart, famed for its sweeping mountain views, world class coffee, and a growing art scene. Why had you already heard of Tasmania? The Tasmanian Devil, of course! There are numerous places here to see these fascinating marsupials in the flesh. They’re a bit different to the Looney Tunes version, but don’t hold that against them. If you want to see a side of Australia that many travellers miss, make sure you don’t overlook Tasmania.
