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.Recommended for:

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.Recommended for:

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.Recommended for:

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 ...
