With the cleanest air in the world and the purest rainwater, Tasmania has been described as the “Best Temperate Island in the World.” Its relatively unspoiled natural environment also makes it one of the most beautiful places to visit. Tasmania is an island with stunning natural wonders, a rich history, and world-class cultural attractions. There are many stops on your journey, and we at Great Expeditions would love to share in your adventure.
Tasmania is the largest island state of Australia and the 26th largest island in the world. Tasmania is about the size of Ireland with a cool, temperate climate and four distinctive seasons. However, since it is located in the Southern Hemisphere the seasons are opposite from that in the United States, with summer in Tasmania being from December through February. Hobart is the capital city and also the largest city in Tasmania, with Launceston as the second largest city.
