All About Tasmania
Tasmania may be Australia’s smallest state but it boasts some of the country’s most rugged scenery, breathtaking powder-white beaches, and quaint towns. Although Tasmania is located just 240 kilometres off of Australia's southeastern coast, it has unique plants and animals that you don't find throughout the rest of the country including the Tasmanian Devil and the wombat.
Approximately 42 percent of the island is made up of national parks and World Heritage Sites so there is an endless array of options for outdoor activities and you can trek, swim, surf, cycle, fish, and more on this small island. There are also more than 200 wineries dotted across Tasmania producing some of the world’s best cool-climate wines. Many of Tasmania’s most popular attractions are located relatively close together, which makes it possible to visit many different places without having to spend countless hours in your car.
The best time to stay in a holiday rental in Tasmania
Tasmania is a good place to rent a visit all year round. During the summer months of December to February, the weather is the warmest allowing you to visit the many different parks and enjoy many outdoor activities. However, be sure to book your holiday rentals in Tasmania well in advance if you plan on traveling during the summer. Spring and fall are also good times to rent a holiday house in Tasmania as the weather is a bit cooler and there are fewer people. There are also some great springtime festivals including the Bloomin Tulips Festivals, the Devonport Food and Wine Festival, and the Junction Arts Festivals. Although June to August are the coldest months of the year, they are also very quiet and you may have some places all to yourself. You also get a chance to see some beautiful winter landscapes as some parts of the island may have snow when you are there.
Top things to do in Tasmania
A Tasmanian Road Trip
With good-quality roads, very little traffic outside of Hobart, and many top attractions located just a few hours’ drive from one another, Tasmania is a great place for a road trip. There are many charming towns to stay in, such as Port Arthur, Strahan, and Evandale, as well as beautiful parks to explore, including Cradle Mountain National Park and Lake St. Clair Heritage Park. Along the way, there are also plenty of wineries to visit and wildlife to spot. A car gives you the flexibility to stop wherever you want whenever you want, whether it be at a secluded beach for a colourful sunrise, a roadside pub that looks straight out of a movie, or an old power station that now serves as a museum.
Freycinet National Park
Located on the Freycinet Peninsula, this beautiful park is home to the crescent-shaped Wineglass Bay, one of Tasmania’s most famous natural attractions due to its unique shape and gorgeous pink and red geological formations. You can either visit the viewpoint and look down on the turquoise water below, walk the entire Freycinet Peninsula as it juts out into the Tasman Sea, or any distance in between. There are kilometres of hiking trails to choose from including half-day and multi-day hikes as well as options for swimming, and kayaking in the gorgeous Great Oyster Bay. If you are lucky, you may be able to spot some of the local wildlife such as wallabies, wombats, eagles, whales, and dolphins.
Bay of Fires
With more than 50 kilometres of stunning beaches, lagoons, and rocky cliffs, the Bay of Fires is one of Tasmania’s most dramatic stretches of coastline. The bay is famous for its bright orange lichen-covered boulders which stand out in sharp contrast to the sugar-white sand, and sparkling blue water.
