Southern Tasmania

While in the south of Tasmania be sure to visit Bruny Island. While Bruny Island is one single island, often it’s mistaken for two different ones, with North and South Bruny joined by a narrow strip of land, known as The Neck. There are dozens of lookout points to view the breathtaking scenery and gorgeous sandy beaches to stroll along. A tour of the Cape Bruny Lighthouse is also most definitely worth the trip while in Southern Tasmania. Explore the magnificent coastline on an eco-cruise, sailboat, or kayak. Bruny Island is home to fur seals, fairy penguins, albatross, wedge-tailed eagles, white wallabies and many endemic species. In addition to stunning scenery, Bruny Island is a foodies paradise, with delicious local produce at the farmgate and cellar doors. The island showcases a variety of artisan cheese, oysters, seafood, berries, fudge, wine, whisky, gin, beer and a selection of cafes and restaurants.

To the east are the wineries of the Coal River Valley and further on is Tasman National Park, with its spectacular coastline and historic convict sites. Port Arthur is one of the most amazing places in Australia. It is Australia’s best-preserved convict site and one of the country’s most important heritage destinations. Learn about some of the people who passed through the place and there are more than 30 historic buildings and ruins to explore. Allow the whole day as there is so much to do and see.

Steeped in history and a family-friendly destination, Richmond is one of Tasmania’s most popular places to visit. Take a stroll along Richmond Bridge, the oldest bridge in the country that’s still in use. There’s also Richmond Gaol – the oldest intact gaol in Australia.

The picturesque Derwent Valley is filled with historic villages, wilderness rainforests, spectacular waterfalls and gorgeous scenery. It’s well worth a drive through the valley, stopping along the way at New Norfolk, the Salmon Ponds, Russell Falls and Hamilton.

Walk above the forest canopy with the Tahune Airwalk. As you look down, you’ll get a glimpse of where the waters of the Huon and Picton Rivers meet. Along the way, there are spectacular views and there are various trails to take including the Swinging Bridges and Huon Pine walks.

Situated in Derwent Bridge, the Wall in the Wilderness is one of Australia’s most ambitious art projects undertaken in recent years. The designer, Greg Duncan, has carved the history of the Tasmanian Central Highlands into 100 metres of timber. The carvings show the history, hardship and perseverance of the local people and it’s truly a magical sight. 

Remarkable Cave is essentially, a long tunnel in a beautiful and dramatic spot, situated under a cliff. There’s a viewing platform at the bottom of the steps that offers an incredible view of the opening. It can be explored at low tide. However, for those looking for something a little less ‘wet’ there are several walks where you can still experience the magic that is Remarkable Cave.

An alternative route passes through the Huon Valley alongside the tranquil Huon River and onto the rugged Hartz Mountains National Park. The Huon Valley is one of Australia’s fastest-emerging wine and food destinations. The area is famous for Huon Salmon, try some while in the area it is beautiful. Huonville is a lovely place, surrounded by orchids and farmland, stop off and enjoy the local produce with a cuppa and relax.
