The unspoiled beauty of Tasmania awaits - a stunningly beautiful island that is an integral part of Australia's mystery and majesty. Sub-tropical rain forests and rural mountain charm make this island a nature lover's paradise. Nibble on local cheese, truffles and smoked trout to curb an appetite sharpened by your outdoor experiences. Sip cocktails beside a shimmering lake at sunset. This is an Australia seen and enjoyed by few.
Spend time in Hobart - the city is defined by the river and sea. Hobart is a city of warm sandstone, bright spinnakers on the water, fish punts at the docks, the slap of halyards on masts, and coffee under the sun umbrellas of Salamanca where the famous Salamanca Market is held every Saturday. The Islington Hotel is ideally situated for exploring Hobart.
Tasmania’s east coast is a coast of contrast - sunshine and sea life, wine and wildlife, crags and beaches, history and adventure. It’s a coast of national parks. Freycinet, a bushwalkers’ and sea kayakers’ paradise; and Maria Island, with its history, walks and fauna.
For the angler there's the opportunity to hone one's skills with a world-class fly fisherman at an internationally renowned trout lodge. Then there's the Tasmanian wilderness, bush walking, bird watching and unique wildlife. Or try the excitement of exploring limestone caves that open to richly decorated cathedral-like chambers and undeveloped grottos.
Top off your Tasmanian experience by staying at boutique lodges such as Cradle Mountain Lodge. Here you'll be surrounded by World Heritage national parks awash with majestic waterfalls, punctuated by jagged peaks rising eerily through the low lying clouds which shroud the pencil pines in mist and mystery.
