Visit Tasmania: glamping holidays

Almost 250 kilometers off the south coast of Australia, Tasmania is a paradise waiting to be discovered. The island is generally separated into 7 regions: the North West, West Coast, Hobart and South, East Coast, Launceston and North, Flinders Island, and King Island. Many people may overlook Tasmania when traveling to and around Australia, however, this little island is quite impressive. With numerous national parks, mountains as tall as 5305 ft, and the most beautiful beaches in the world, the state of Tasmania cannot be disputed as one of the best destinations to visit in Australia now. While Hobart has so much to offer visitors, from the Salamanca Market to award-winning restaurants, museums, and more, the Tasmania wilderness holds many jewels. After spending a morning in Hobart, head for Mt. Wellington to hike; visit the Cataract Gorge near Launceston; and what about the stunning Wineglass Bay and Freycinet National Park? Visit Tasmania and see why this is one of Australia’s most popular outdoor holiday destinations.

Best things to do outdoors in Tasmania

Even if you are planning on staying in Hobart or Launceston, you have no excuse to not get outside. Because of Tasmania’s size, there are so many amazing things to do outdoors easily reachable from the cities. Tasmania is home to mountains and beaches and offers outdoor lovers a range of activities from sailing to diving, rock climbing to kayaking, fishing to mountain biking, and so much more. Over one-third of the state is a national park, reserve, or world heritage protected wilderness! If you’re visiting for luxury walking holidays, be sure to check out the world-famous walks like the Three Capes Track, the Overland Track, or the hike around Wineglass Bay. Down at the magnificent Coles Bay, visitors are encouraged to wait until sunset before strapping up and getting in the water to do some kayaking. Over at the Franklin River, river rafting has a much higher pace for the thrill-seekers among us. On Bruny Island, you can climb aboard the cruise boat and set sail just off the southeast coast of Tasmania, where you’ll be able to get some brilliant pictures of both small and larger wildlife. Other excursions and things to do in Tasmania include sailing the West Coast, mountain biking on Mt. Wellington, bushwalking in the Tarkine, and more!
