Tasmania Weekend Getaways

Tasmania is a diverse island with lush forests, towering mountains, and colourful bodies of water. This state is located 240 kilometres south of Victoria, but it is fairly access to via air or sea across the Bass Strait.

Hobart is the capital and cultural centre of Tasmania, offering modern hotels, harbours and historical attractions. From Hobart you can embark on a marine adventure to Bruny Island or take the opportunity to climb to the summit of Mount Wellington. Cradle Mountain-Lake St. Clair National Park challenges even the most experienced bushwalkers with its diverse landscape of lakes and mountains. Located in the north-western portion of Tasmania, Devonport is a quiet town that offers stellar views of glassy waters and beaches. Queenstown is a peaceful oasis of civilisation in a dense land of lush forests and roaring rivers. At Freycinet National Park you will surely admire the pink granite stones and blue waters that you encounter as you trek across the Hazards Range. King Island has amazing beaches that offer massive swells to surfers. After a day of excitement and relaxation at the beach, enjoy some local King Island seafood and produce.
