Tasmania is Australia's only island state and is located directly south of Melbourne. It is well known for its vast, rugged wilderness areas which are protected within nature reserves and parks. Be enriched by the history behind Tasmania, with the 19th-century Port Arthur Penal Settlement located on the Tasman Peninsula, and is now a fully operating museum. In the capital, Hobart, you will find Salamanca Place's Georgian warehouses, now house galleries and boutiques. The Museum of Old and New Art has a contemporary, yet historic edge, so you get the best of both worlds. As well as an array of historic sites, Tasmania boasts many world class wineries and is famous for its apple and seafood production. Camping with your pet here is highly recommended as there are many natural sites to explore, not just in the main cities, but out in the wilderness too, and it is just just perfect for your beloved pets to run around and exlore for themselves!
