Autumn in Tasmania

 

About Tasmania

Tasmania's diversity and relatively small size make it a great holiday destination. In the space of a week, you can walk to views of dazzling coastal scenery, pamper yourself in high-class resort accommodation, eat your way through some of the best seafood in the country and experience the locally made wines. See distinct wildlife, many of which are endangered or extinct elsewhere: the infamous Tasmanian devil, the spotted-tail and the eastern quoll. You can see a lot in a short space of time but resist the urge to zoom around cramming absolutely everything in - as they say - stop to smell the roses - or in Tasmania's case, the fresh air, forests, cheeses, wines..

The West Coast of Tasmania has spectacular mountains with deep gorges and dense rainforests on the lower slopes, many lakes and rushing rivers.  Why not stay at one of our favorite Tasmania hotels Aldermere Estate, a beautiful four star hotel in Strahan

The Southern region, which has been declared a World Heritage Area, is so wild and rugged that there may still be parts where no person has ever been. There has been bitter argument as to whether to leave this natural wilderness as it is, or to use its massive water resources by damming up the rivers to make hydro-electric power. We have Tasmania accommodation options that are on the beach.

The Great Central Plateau, in the centre of the state, has mountains with snowfields and alpine lakes where the world’s best trout fishing can be experienced. Many rivers, such as the Derwent River, flow from these central highlands, irrigating extensive areas of farmland.

The Northern region is an area of contrast. From the beaches of Bridport to Ben Lomond, one of the most popular ski resorts of northern Tasmania, the area reflects Tasmania's varied landscape.

The East Coast has varied scenery, with 300-metre high cliffs of red granite (known as the Hazards) at Coles Bay, wide surf beaches and mountain scenery near Hobart. The rugged coast of the Tasman Peninsula has some unique rock formations, including the Blowhole, Tasman’s Arch, the Devil’s Kitchen and Tessellated Pavement. Swansea Accommodation is a charmimg Tasmanian Bed & breakfast and its our top pick for East coast Tasmania accommodation.

Tassie has an abundance of towering mountains, rainforests and pure white sandy beaches. The entire landscape is surrounded with natural bushland and spectacular beauty. There are over 20 National Parks in Australia’s Island State and you will find some of the worlds largest and most unusual trees.

A snap shot of must see and do tourist attractions include Cataract Gorge near Launceston - bushwalking through Cradle Mountain, take a trip on the scenic train on the Don River Railway, see the magnificent rocky coastline of the Freycinet Peninsula, take a tour of the heritage site of Port Arthur, cruise the Franklin River from Strahan, admire the many murals on the buildings in Sheffield or witness the finish line of the famous Sydney to Hobart Yacht Race in Tassie.
