Tasmania is a small, heart-shaped island located off the south-eastern region of Australia. To get an idea of Tasmania’s attraction, almost half of the island is filled with natural parks and forest reserves, all of which are protected as World Heritage sites. Hikers and campers love to explore Tasmania’s landscape, and bikers can participate in the Great Tasmanian Bike Ride. The cities of Launceston and Hobart also offer many activities and attractions for those who prefer a less active holiday.
As the capital of Tasmania, Hobart is a small and intimate city, perfect for a short holiday. A cosy harbour town with beautiful heritage buildings and precincts, Hobart is full of charm and small-town delights. Spend a Saturday browsing hundreds of workshops and gift shops filled with beautifully crafted goods, locally made clothing and traditional art in the Salamanca Market. Head over to Battery Point and have some delicious baked pastries from Jackman & McRoss, a delightful café and patisserie. Battery Point is filled with glowing sandstone architecture and a leisurely walk around the area is a good way to spend an afternoon in Hobart. A favourite with children as well as adults is the famous Cadbury Chocolate Factory. At night, listen to some live music at the Salamanca Arts Centre, which has an ever-changing line-up of local musicians, or visit the Lark Distillery to get a taste of some of their famous whiskies and liqueurs.
Launceston is one of Tasmania’s largest cities and its elegant Victorian buildings and historic parks are its main attractions. A recommended museum in Launceston is the Queen Victoria Museum, which houses an interesting mix of colonial art, Tasmanian local history and natural sciences. There is also a boardwalk boasting picturesque views of Launceston, which goes from Seaport to Inveresk, passing tourist sights such as Royal Park and Ritchies Mill.
