10 Reasons To Book a Trip to Tasmania

Tasmania (or “Tassie” in local-speak), is one of those magical places that truly has it all. You’ll find natural wonders abound, with rugged mountains, beautiful beaches and lush forests; a nature-lover’s dream come true. If you ever manage to set your foot on this Southern Australian Island, we can pretty much guarantee you will have an unforgettable adventure.

Here’s 10 Reasons Why:



The Tasmanian Devil

No, it doesn’t look like the one from Looney Tunes, but it is quite ferocious! Tasmania has a rich wildlife, and is the only place where you can find the Endangered Tasmanian Devil living in the wild. You very well might see one of the road attacking an animal carcass, but if you want to make sure to see one of these magnificent creatures you can visit the Tasmanian Devil Unzoo, an ultra-modern zoo where the animals live more free than a usual zoo.



A chance to see the Southern Lights

Tasmania is one of the best places in Australia to have a good chance of seeing the Southern Lights – or, technically speaking, the Aurora Australis. The best time to see the lights is in September, but they can show up anytime all-year round. The best places to make sure you can see the lights is from a mountain, beach or shallow bay, any place where there’s less light. Why not go camping and catch the lights?





Four seasons

Tasmania is the one of the few places in Australia that has four distinct seasons. In the summer you can visit one of Tassie’s beautiful beaches, watch the leaves fall in Autumn, feel the amazing weather of Spring, and in Winter hit the slopes in the mountains of Ben Lomond in the north or Mt Mawson in the south.



Great Short Walks - Waterfall Bay Track

Tasman Peninsula

The Tasman Peninsula is one of the most beautiful spots in Tasmania, a beautiful coastal scenery where you can do everything from fishing, kayaking, and rock climbing, to horse riding and surfing.  For the bushwalkers, you’ll find over 35 different walks and hikes on the peninsula!






Cradle Mountain National Park

This world heritage-listed national park is one of the most visited parks in Tasmania and an absolute must-see while you are in Australia. You’ll get the best experience exploring by foot, and there are loads of different day tours to choose from.



Wineglass Bay

Wineglass Bay, part of Freycinet National Park, is one of the world’s most beautiful and tucked-away beaches. Can’t you see yourself relaxing surrounded by the beauty of Tasmania?





Bruny Islands

Bruny Islands are the two south eastern islands tied together by Bruny Island Neck (see the picture). With a stunning 360 degree view, and some of the most adorable animals you’ll ever see (like Little Penguins!), this one is a sure shot. If you take one of the boat tours, you’ll get to see seals, dolphins, caves and vertical cliffs too!  It’s an adventurers delight!






The capital of Tasmania, and it has something for everyone. Here you’ll find historical museums, amazing food, and a civilised gateway to all the mountains, beaches and forests just a skip away.  (Hint: stop by the Travel Desk to get recommendations on the best hostels to stay at in Hobart!)





Taste of Tasmania

We all know how much we love good food here in Australia, and Tasmania is no exception! Taste of Tasmania is one of Australia’s most popular food festivals, attracting over 265,000 visitors each year. The festival is running between December 28 until January 3, so go ahead and make New Years plans to be there!




The Fresh Air

Did you know that Tasmania has the cleanest air in the entire world? It’s worth the trip just to give your lungs a break from the Sydney air!  Head to Tasmania, take in a deep breath of the fresh air, look around at the amazing natural beauty, and then call us and tell us you had a bad time. Yeah, we don’t think that’s going to happen 😉
