Listen to the soft rhythm that is Tasmania. She glories in her art, culture, and the stories of her people. Continuously inhabited for 35,000 years, the traces of Tasmania’s past are written on her stunning pink cliffs and wild rivers. Jump into the beat of Tasmania and wander through the rambunctious streets of Hobart, or explore rainforests, moors, and pristine shores.
Tasmania is filled with one-of-a-kind experiences. Share a white sand beach with kangaroos. Trek on forest trails interrupted by dramatic waterfalls. Dip your toes in a mountain pool. Keep your eyes open for a platypus or a wallaby. While in the city, hit up MONA, an underground art museum that fires the cultural scene. Savor local seafood, cheeses, honey, nuts, and enjoy an intense glass of wine while cruising a river. Imagine a place like no other. That is Tasmania.
