    Tassie, though often overlooked by international visitors to Australia, is a treat. The capital, Hobart, might be one of the country's most charming cities, but it's really the land itself that distinguishes this wild, Ireland-sized island state. With rolling hills, unspoiled beaches, gorgeous grasslands, and some of the world's most pristine tracks of temperate rainforest, it's the perfect place to "go bush" and get lost.

    When you want to go to New Zealand, but you are in Australia. You go to Tasmania.

    Hobart does have a city scene so don't let its sleepiness fool you. You need to search for its Soul.

    Cradle Mountain is widely regarded as the "must do" if you can only go to one nature area. If you can do two, add Wineglass / Coles Bay.

    The other "must do" from a Foodie perspective, is going to one of the many wonderful wineries all over the island.

    I've been told that Tasmania is a mini-version of New Zealand. Although I haven't been to New Zealand (yet), the images of sheep, green rolling hills, and provincial character give Tasmania a unique feel that is distinct from Australia. I went here on a road trip and thoroughly enjoyed it.

    When I am asked to describe Tasmania, I pretty sum it up like this. "Think New Zealand, but a lot more wildlife". Yep, and lots of it. This island is about the size of Virginia, yet offers so much diversity. From temperate blue waters on the East Coast, to the colder and more rugged coast line on the West and the alpine forests of Cradle Mountain Tasmania will fill most any adventure seekers needs.

    It was the best of times ... it was the worst of times ... the only time we booked a holiday instead of taking pot luck ... Dave and Joe wanted to spend more time looking around .. so did I but we had to be booked into our accommodation before 2pm each day ... so it was we have to get there or lose it ... even though it was pre paid if you didn't check in by the allotted time they could relet your room. Next time we go it will be pot luck ...

Description

In a country that's often thought of as a large island full of strange and wonderful creatures, Tasmania wins the prize amongst Australian States for being almost just that. The 26th largest island in the world sits off Australia's southeastern coast amidst the frigid and bountiful waters of the Southern Ocean. Home to Tasmanian devils, wombats and wallabies, the island was also very recently ... read more
roamed by a large predatory marsupial dubbed the "Tasmanian tiger" - now believed extinct. Home to a half a million people, many of them located in the cosmopolitan center of Hobart, the island State takes great pride in its environmental legacy. Some 37% of its area is protected in reserves, national parks and world heritage sites. "A World Apart, Not A World Away", Tasmania offers fine wines, fresh seafood and some of the most unusual wilderness excursions on the planet.
