Plan your trip

Activities and Attractions

Tasmania's a small state but the list of great things to do here is HUGE. You're probably thinking: 'where do I start'?
Right here!

We know you're going to love your time in Tasmania and we want to help you make every minute count.

Here's a partial list of just some of the many brilliant attractions and experiences you can start thinking about. Invest a bit of time in planning and you'll end up with a Tasmanian experience that you'll talk about for years.

What do you want to see and do? What gets you off? Perhaps pitching a tent for a spot of camping?  Or tackling something with a meal or trophy at the end of it - a spot of fishing? Take a walk on the tame side and explore some of our magnificent gardens. Slow down and learn the art of good food, in the company of your chosen wine or fine ale. Inside days may be some of your most enjoyable, with world class museums and galleries, or that promise of 'restrained' retail therapy. No one will mind if you fail the test.

Conquer that ball with a spectacular round of Golf? Our wildlife watching or walking, trekking and guided walks are legendary - we have THE wildlife and THE places to lose your mind in wonder.

Step back in time and explore Tasmania's convict heritage sites - if that is too staid, push yourself and go for it. Try any of these true adventure pursuits and by the time you leave Tasmania you'll be totally pumped.

Did we mention an abseil or a rappel? There are some awesome faces to scale. No, we mean REALLY awesome. Bash the bush in an All Terrain Vehicle - or ramp on down a dune or two. Perhaps you want to get on your bike and cycle through some of the most incredible bush tracks and trails. Do you want to dive? We have sites which are sensational and some just 20 minutes from downtown. How about kayaking or canoeing? Our hidden rivers, lakes and stunning ocean paddles will blow you away.

You're a surfer? We've got waves like you've never imagined - let alone seen, they are not for the faint hearted! And for whitewater rafting nuts - this is a state that's carved up by some of Australia's wildest waterways. So if you're an adrenalin freak, Tasmania's your holiday spot. Trust us. You won't be disappointed.

And the best thing? You can get around this endlessly amazing place really easily - up a mountain in the morning and breathing in ozone from stirring breakers in the afternoon.
