Wine and Food:

Tasmania offers wonderful opportunities to savour hand-crafted wine, beer and fresh produce, and to meet the stars of the show - the makers, chefs and growers. Stop for lunch or dinner at one of our stunning winery restaurants. Immerse yourself in therapeutic vineyard or river views and contemporary architecture while selecting award-winning sparkling wine, Riesling and pinot noir to match Tasmania's freshest oysters, rock lobster and venison.  Visit Salamanca Market, held every Saturday in Hobart, for an introduction to some of Tasmania's freshest produce. Rejuvenate your palate with herb vinegars, mustards, bush honeys and organic goods. Or visit one of the quality delicatessens throughout the State to taste locally produced condiments, smoked and fresh produce and luscious cheeses.

Things To Do

Wildlife Experiences:

Sit quietly and observe carefully – the swirl of a swimming platypus, quoll tracks along the tideline, wombats and wallabies rustling in the bush. Our oceans and coasts teem with life – seals and penguins, shearwaters and sea eagles, dolphins and whales. On land or sea, specialist wildlife tours take you where you're most likely to see rare and unusual fauna. In many national parks, animals are often easier to observe close-up, especially at dusk. Bring your flashlight, camera and binoculars!


Natural Attractions:

Many of Tasmania's best walks are in national parks. National park entry fees are charged to ensure that these wonderful areas are maintained and preserved for future generations. Raft through rapids on the Picton or Franklin, launch yourself on a cable hang-glider above Trevallyn, paddle a sea kayak from Kettering, Coles Bay, Strahan, Hobart or Port Arthur. Explore our high country on a Great Bushwalk, rope up on Hobart's Mt Wellington or the Launceston Gorge, abseil a coastal cliff at Freycinet. Slip on socks and Blundstone boots, then put your best foot forward on Tasmania's extensive network of walking tracks – or ease the pace on a heritage walking tour of our historic city streetscapes and country towns. Trek our coasts and highlands with the sun on your back – there are dozens of Great Short Walks to enjoy, or you can take the challenge of a multi-day Great Bushwalk.


Coastal Must Do's:

Tasmania 's East Coast is a coast of contrast - sunshine and sea life, wine and wildlife, crags and beaches. It's a coast of national parks, with its quietly flowing rivers, eucalypts and Oyster Bay pines; Freycinet, bushwalkers' and sea kayakers' paradise. Further north is the craggy outline of Schouten Island and the graceful profile of the Freycinet Peninsula, with its sea cliffs and forests, tracks and beaches. The holiday town of Coles Bay nestles in a sheltered nook - from here it's a short walk across a saddle to the perfect half-moon of Wineglass Bay. All along the coast, bright beaches blaze, and the distinctive blue-green East Coast sea washes the shores. Grey-green sheoak trees dapple the ground with cool shade. In the ocean beyond, whales follow ancestral migration routes, dolphins frolic and sea birds wheel on the wind.
