TASMANIA is an island at the edge of the world – a natural paradise … small in size yet big on experiences.  The spotlight is on Hobart – the capital city with lots of charm & character. Hobart boasts such amazing adventures including the Museum of old & new Art, long lunches by the waterfront, shopping at the Salamanca Markets, and not-to-be-missed day trips to Port Arthur and Bruny Island.

For Tasmania attractions beyond Hobart, expect wilderness and wildlife at a gentle pace, cruise majestic rivers, walk along pristine deserted beaches or savour inspiring views.
