About Tasmania

Tasmania is the best place on the planet.

If you want to know more about Tasmania, just ask a Tasmanian. We love to talk about our state - why wouldn't we? After all, it's the best place on the planet. Once we start we just don't stop, so this is why we recommend you navigate around these pages and find out for yourself.

This is where you'll find out about all the good things we used to keep under wraps - the great weather, the history that seems to find its way into every crevice of modern day Tasmania, our treasured indigenous culture, cool wildlife and so much more. So much more.

Tasmania's small enough to get around easily but big enough to be filled with a million reasons to visit. The forests are greener than envy, the beaches bluer than blue and the mountain areas so wild and untamed you'd think you were in some surreal nature movie.  The coastlines are like nothing you've ever seen before and the rivers and waterways are just waiting to be swum in, dived into, ridden on and fished silly.

And then of course, there's the cities - don't the names alone make you want to visit? - Hobart, Devonport, Strahan, Burnie, Launceston, Richmond. Exquisite restaurants, cool bars, terrific shopping and great places just to sit and take it all in. Find your favourite adjective and you'll be able to use it over and over in Tasmania.  

Look around, dig a little deeper and go for what really excites you. Planning your stay here will really pay off. Just make sure you allow enough time to see all we have to offer. Or most of it anyway.
