Tasmania travel tips and advice

Traveling Guide to Tasmania


Tasmania is a location that is extremely close to my heart, it is the home state of Australia where I grew up. I spent the first 20 plus years of my life on the Australian Island state and feel lucky to have had such a wonderful destination to call home. I honestly believe it has some of the most underrated tourist destinations in Australia.

It is super easy to travel independently around the island via a road trip or private/group tours. The people are laid back and really friendly plus the scenery you witness is some of the best the country has to offer. Once you move out of the capital city of Hobart the east coast has beautiful beachside towns such as St Helens and Bridport. The north has many waterfalls and National Parks and the west is wild, rugged and untouched.

The best locations to visit in Tasmania include Cradle Mountain National Park, Freycinet National Park, the world heritage listed Port Arthur Historic Site, Bruny Island and the Central Highlands area of Tasmania known for its natural beauty and trout fishing waters. The perfect way to travel around and experience these locations and many more is to hire a car or bring your own over on the Spirit of Tasmania ferry service. This arrives into the city called Devonport from Melbourne, located on the north-west coast of Tasmania.
