Whether you’re coming to Tasmania to experience our delectable cuisine and delicious wines or revelling in the atmospheric charm of one of our many diverse and exuberant towns and cities, there is a little something for everyone. While each community enjoys its own distinctive festive flair, without a doubt, Hobart is centre stage when it comes to embracing a sublime mixture of laid-back ambience and energetic vibes. The Tasmanian capital is home to a thriving arts community, an excellent performing arts scene and several events and celebrations which take place throughout the yearly calendar. You don’t need to go to the mainland to get your cultural feels – it’s all right here.
In 2013, just over 1 million visitors chose Tasmania as their destination, and no wonder, since Tassie may be a small island compared to mainland Australia, but it’s an island filled to bursting with incomparable natural beauty. Tasmania has so much to see, from stunning coastlines, majestic forests, and spectacular mountains. At the same time, not only does Tasmania have a track record of producing food and wine worthy of such a beautiful place, but now the waters of the island are being used to create another unmatched taste experience – Tasmanian whisky.
We’re all in need of a little adventure now and then, and if that adventure takes place on foreign shores, all the more exciting! And if you’re looking for a beach adventure, here’s a list of the top beaches around the world:
Consisting of 155 islands, the Seychelles is home to some of the world’s most beautiful beaches, including the Anse Source D’Argent, Anse Lazio and Mahe, Anse Major.
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.
Day 1 – Hobart to Cradle Mountain
A real welcome to Tasmania day – It’s a lot different from what most people think. Leave Hobart and travel through the midlands where many historic convict towns are located amongst vast farming areas. Stopping for a famous curried Scallop pie (seafood) and delicious local honey, you will be ready to experience the Cradle Mountain National Park which lies on the edge of the World Heritage Listed Area. In the evening you can have an extra tour to see Tasmanian Devils.
Day 2 – Cradle Mountain to Launceston
After taking a refreshing walk around the impressive Dove lake at the base of Cradle Mountain, we head off through rich countryside to replenish our energy at an awarded chocolate factory and also a cheese factory en route to Launceston.
