Out and about in
Tasmania

With a landscape reminiscent of New Zealand, and nothing between it and Antarctica except the wild Southern Ocean, Tasmania is a special place indeed. Home to just 2% of Australia’s population, most of whom live in Hobart or Launceston, and with untouched wilderness and stunning national parks claiming most of the landmass, it’s not hard to get away from it all and reconnect with nature in Australia’s little island state. 

Whether you arrive on the Spirit of Tasmania or choose to fly in and pick up a campervan in Hobart, there’s no better way to experience the magic of Tassie than travelling with a home on wheels and camping as you go. The Tasmanian east coast is one of Australia’s best coastal drives, taking in must-see destinations such as Wineglass Bay in Freycinet National Park, and Bay of Fires. A highlight of any Tasmanian roadie is sampling the local produce, and the lush pastures, orchards and abundant ocean serve up everything from fresh oysters and seafood, to spring lamb, wine and pick-your-own berries.

The charming towns of Tasmania’s north thin out the further you get from the coast allowing for nature to take centre stage. From cruising the Arthur River and bushwalking in Cradle Mountain, to experiencing the cool rainforests of the Tarkine, the biggest of its kind in the world, outdoor experiences are world class. On the west coast, Strahan is the final frontier, with nothing beyond Macquarie Harbour but the wild forests, rivers, lakes and mountains of Franklin-Gordon Wild Rivers and Southwest National Park. The west coast is also rich in history, with significant convict sites and mining areas to be explored.

You could spend weeks in Hobart and Tasmania’s southeast, exploring Port Arthur, Bruny Island, Maria Island, Mount Wellington, and enjoying Hobart’s uncrowded city beaches, markets and fine dining. Amazingly, less than an hour away, you can tackle some of Tasmania’s best alpine walks in the Hartz Mountains and Mt Field National Park.
