Dramatic landscapes, historic railways, giant forests, delicious fresh produce and so much more... Tasmania is waiting to be discovered! Read about Tasmania's regions below.

Hobart Tasmania

Hobart and Surrounds
Nestled next to the Derwent River and below the spectacular Mt Wellington,  Hobart is a city rich in history and culture. Enjoy the nation's best outdoor market, Salamanca Market. Take a river cruise, explore some of Tasmania's convict history at Battery Point or relax in one of the many cafés. 

South of Hobart, take a three hour eco-cruise at Bruny Island and walk around South Bruny National Park. Also 40 minutes from Hobart is the Huon Valley where you can walk amongst the treetops at Tahune Airwalk. Ride on a jet boat on the Huon River or visit the caves and thermal springs at Hastings.

West of Hobart, New Norfolk is a great place to relax. Enjoy exploring the historic buildings, great rugged scenery and restful mood. South east of Hobart, don't miss the convict history of Port Arthur and along the way, stop into the historic town of Richmond to see the beautiful convict-built bridge. Other towns in this region include Dover, Geeveston, Hamilton, Bothwell, Oatlands and Sorell.

Mount Roland Tasmania

The North West Coast
Tasmania's north west coast offers fresh produce aplenty, from cheeses and raspberries to produce fresh from rich soil.

Nearby to Devonport is Latrobe, famous for its antique shops and a likely place to see a wild platypus! Pop your antique bargain in the boot and head south through Sheffield - the town of murals, set in farmlands with Mt Roland as a backdrop.

Travelling alongside Bass Strait from Devonport, pose for a photo at the giant penguin in Penguin. Visit Creative Paper in Burnie and the Table Cape lookout in Wynyard.

Visit the fishing village, Stanley and ride the chairlift to the top of the volcanic plug known as 'The Nut'.  Journey to the Edge of the World at Arthur River where the ocean continues all the way to Argentina.

Wineglass Bay Tasmania

The East Coast
Wineglass Bay has been voted one of the world's top 10 beaches and it's easy to see why! Climb over the saddle in the Hazards and see a jagged range of salmon pink and grey granite peaks. Catch a glimpse of white sand with clear, indigo blue sea set against the backdrop of the beautiful Freycinet National Park.

Driving north offers a array of superb coastal vistas from Friendly Beaches near Wineglass Bay to the Bay of Fires in the north east corner of the state.

Aside from Freycinet National Park, there's Douglas-Apsley with its contrasting forests, heathlands and crystal clear streams. Maria Island is another wonderful national park on the east coast not to be missed. From remarkable wildlife to sweeping bays and rugged mountains, there's something for everyone. 

The seaside towns of Bicheno and Swansea are also worth a visit.

Launceston Winery

Launceston, Tamar and the North
Launceston is located in the north of the state and is the second largest city in Tasmania. Cataract Gorge Reserve is a slice of wilderness, only a two-minute drive from the heart of Launceston. Here, between the towering dolerite facades you'll find walking trails, a suspension bridge, roaming peacocks and wallabies, a historic power station and the world's longest single span chairlift! 

Indulge yourself at one of the many wineries in the Tamar Valley which features Tasmania's largest winery, Tamar Ridge.

While in this region, visit the picturesque town of Deloraine, a town of artists and farmers. See a convict-built stone village in Ross or pick up some honey at the Tasmanian Honey Company in Perth or The Honey Farm in Chudleigh. Other towns to visit are Beaconsfield, Campbell Town, Bridport, Evandale, George Town and Westbury.

Craddle Mountain Tasmania

The Western Wilderness
Experience one of the world's most pristine wilderness areas!  The spectacular World Heritage Area covers 1/5 of Tasmania, allowing visitors to experience Tasmania's true wilderness. Drive around the winding roads to Queenstown or take a river cruise in Strahan on the Gordon River. Be sure to visit the world's largest stretch of temperate rainforest, the Tarkine.

Of course, no visit to Tasmania is complete without seeing the dramatic peak of Cradle Mountain. Walk the circular track around picturesque Dove Lake and marvel at the jagged contours of this truly magnificent mountain.

While you're in the Western Wilderness region, visit the former silver town of Zeehan, the caves at Mole Creek and the historic mining towns of Tullah and Rosebery.
