Over the past few years, Tasmania has really started to get it’s just rewards as far as tourism goes, it has so much to offer the traveller but until now has rarely been given the time by most. They are the ones that have missed out though because you really should visit Tasmania.
I might be a little biased as Tasmania is my home state of Australia, but it honestly does have so much to offer. The nature has some of the most amazing National Parks in Australia including Cradle Mountain and Freycinet, both of which I have written separate blogs about on this website and the local produce is sort after by many a restaurant all over the world with both the seafood, beef and vegetables high-end quality.
On top of this, the people are some of the most laid back and friendly in the country and are always ready to offer a helping hand or engage in a friendly chat. They will be interested to hear your story or reason as to what has brought you to Tasmania.
For a small island, it also offers so much to the travelling person whether it be a city break, camping, nature walks, beaches, National Parks, waterfalls, fishing, hunting, touring by road or simply relaxing and dining in a quality hotel and restaurants.
My personal favourite areas of Tasmania is the East Coast, including St Helens and Wine Glass Bay areas, my home town of Port Sorell which every summer swells to over double its population with Tasmanian and Interstate tourists flocking to the great beaches, the Great Lake which offers sensational trout fishing in one of a number of the many number of lakes located in the area, of course, the world-famous Cradle Mountain National Park and the capital city of the island state, Hobart.
I encourage you to add Tasmania onto your travel list of places to visit when making your way to Australia in the future or if you are an Aussie looking for a different holiday spot then why not make it your next go to location.
The way to arrive into Tasmania with your own car, caravan or motorhome is with the Spirit of Tasmania whereas if you are wanting to fly over the Bass Strait then the airports of Launceston or Hobart are your best-valued options. From there hire a car if confident enough to do so and hit the open roads of Tasmania. If not join a tour group and tick of the destinations, you want to enjoy.
If you are flying into Hobart and want to know what is on offer in the local area see my “Guide to Hobart”.
I have added some more detailed blog posts on the best destinations to visit that are mentioned above so certainly read through those and learn more about this hidden gem of an Island. Don’t do what others have done before and ignore this hidden gem, plan a trip and visit Tasmania soon.
