About Tasmania

Tasmania

Tasmania is a place of wild and beautiful landscapes, friendly people with a relaxed island lifestyle, wonderful food and wine, and a haunting history evoked by world-famous convict ruins.

It’s also Australia’s smallest state and the most geographically diverse with over 40 per cent reserved as national parks and world heritage wilderness.

No matter where you go, whether you spend time in one place or drive around the island, we know you’ll be delighted by what you’ll find and surprised at how much bigger Tasmania is on the inside.

Tasmania’s north is a feast of historic streetscapes and heritage estates, rich farmland, premier cool-climate wines, fresh produce and a haven for designers and craft makers eager to talk about their work

Tasmania’s east coast, with its natural beauty, spectacular landscapes and long beautiful beaches, offers a completely different Australian coastal experience.  Here you’ll discover the beaches of the beautiful Bay of Fires, one of Lonely Planet’s top 10 regions in the world, along with historic  townships, fresh seafood and friendly locals – all on one of the best scenic coastal drives in the country.

Hobart, Tasmania’s capital city, offers a blend of heritage and lifestyle with world class activities and attractions nearby.

On Tasmania’s west coast you’ll find world famous wilderness rich in convict heritage, stunning national parks and historic mining towns. Gateway to Tasmania’s Wilderness World Heritage Area, its rugged mountains, ancient rain forests and heath make Tasmania’s west one of Australia’s last true wilderness frontiers.
