Tasmania is fantastic any time of year, but it is especially beautiful in summer when the wildflowers are blooming, the sun is shining, and the beach is the place to be. Enjoy the charming cities of Hobart and Launceston, which each have a distinctly small-town feel, and it is well worth visiting the very odd but utterly interesting Museum of Old and New Art - a museum for those who hate portraiture and landscape paintings. The local produce is outstanding, so make sure you try local wines, and especially the cheeses, which are award-winning. The landscape is stunning, with enchanting waterfalls, craggy mountains, lush forests, and pristine natural beaches. There's plenty to do here, whether you enjoy hiking, biking, kayaking, canoeing, or fishing. Just don't forget to book one of these unique summer getaways for the vacation of a lifetime!
