Hobart and beyond
The capital city combines heritage charm and cultural diversity. Soak up the sun on Salamanca Place – a waterfront hub for food, art, shopping and music. Grab some fresh-off-the-boat fish and oysters or visit one of the many Indian restaurants.
Spend the day at Wineglass Bay – often voted as one of the top ten beaches in the world. Take the 45-minute walk to the top of the hill for great views of the white sand and turquoise water and to take that perfect photograph.
Discover a world of ancient and epic beauty in Western Tasmania’s World Heritage-listed National Parks. Go on a steam-powered railway journey, cruise down Gordon River and walk through pine and myrtle forests. Stay in one of the comfortable cabins and finish the day in a hot tub.
Head’s top tip
“Take a walk around Cradle Mountain National Park through the ever-changing vegetation of the shores and mountainside to fully appreciate the magic of this area. I also recommend King Island where you can try some of the nation’s best cheese.”
