Tasmania - a curious island at the edge of the world.
Tasmania hosts a diversity of unspoiled habitats and ecosystems, with plants and animals found nowhere else of earth. It's also stunning beautiful.
From Cape Grim, the most northerly point on the Tasmanian mainland, to the Franklin-Gordon River Wild Rivers National Park, birthplace of the Australian Greens, to the milky blue waters of Wineglass bay in Freycinet National Park, let us take you to these little patches of paradise, way off the beaten track.
On the wild west coast of Tasmania, Strahan offers some of Tasmania's most beautiful scenery. A harbour-side village with a dark and fascinating convict past, set on the edge of the World Heritage wilderness area, Strahan is not serviced by commercial airlines.
Nestled on the shores of massive Macquarie Harbour, the gateway to the World Heritage listed Franklin-Gordon Wild River National Park, it's the starting point for an unforgettable experience. Journey through World Heritage Wilderness into the pristine temperate rainforests of the Gordon River and to the penal colony Sarah Island with Gordon River Cruises.
West Coast Wilderness Railways offers a vintage steam locomotive journey deep into temperate rainforests, crossing history bridges, following the course of the King River.
Head to Peoples Park and stroll through cool-temperate rainforest to reach Hogarth Falls – the experience is one of Tasmania’s 60 Great Short Walks (you might even spot a platypus).
Freycinet National Park
Occupying most of Freycinet Peninsula on Tasmania’s east coast, Freycinet National Park has dramatic pink granite peaks, secluded bays, white sandy beaches and abundant wildlife. Walks lead to bays and beaches, while the waters beckon for swimming, snorkelling and kayaking.
Explore Freycinet Peninsula's incredible cliffs, sea caves and hidden coves while cruising the stunningly blue Wineglass Bay, the most well known image from this photogenic region.
Craigie Knowe is the oldest vineyard on the east coast of Tasmania, with the first vines planted in 1979 and many buildings dating back to the 1840s.
