Overview

Tasmania is a hiker and nature lover’s paradise with about 20% of the island comprising the Tasmanian Wilderness World Heritage Area, and some of Australia’s most loved National Parks found here. Cradle Mountain–Lake St Clair National Park is one of our favourites, with its world-class walking trails and alpine and lake scenery. There are also some exceptional wilderness lodges in this area, offering a chance to end a day of mountain adventures by the fire with a glass of red. The East Coast of Tasmania offers a stark contrast with its turquoise bays and coastal ranges framing the view of the Freycinet coast. For a slower pace of life and great beach walking we recommend Maria Island near Hobart.
