Tasmania, an island at the edge of the world, is purpose-built for outdoor adventure and seeing wildlife up close. With nearly half of its territory protected by national parks and reserves, it’s one of the last great temperate wilderness areas on Earth.
Epic adventures abound in Tasmania: whether it’s walking through a lush forest, across a wild alpine plateaus or up a dramatic peak; taking a dip at an empty white-sand beach; or kayaking along a serene river to spot a platypus.
Explorers and adventure seekers can enjoy wildlife spotting, mountain biking, iconic walks, fly-fishing, surfing, golf, yoga and wellness.
The island state’s reputation for incredible local produce – particularly cheese, seafood, cool-climate wines, artisan beers, whisky and gin – ensures visitors will be well fed (and lubricated).
