Tasmania is an island just off the coast of Australia. Easily reached by a short flight from Sydney or Melbourne.
Tasmania is a relatively isolated environment that has enabled plants and animals to evolve undisturbed from outside influence. The cool temperate weather provides fertile conditions for the natural world to create inspiring landscapes. Some of the most unspoilt sites you will see in Australia will be those of Tasmania!
Highlights include Port Arthur, Cradle Mountain, Wineglass Bay and the old growth forests are internationally recognised as being places of universal beauty and interest.
A favourite place to visit in Tasmania of ours here at Real Aussie Adventures is the Bay of Fires. This stretch of coast line from Binalong bay to Eddystone Point is famous due to the orange lichen covered rocks that litter the white sandy beach. As you drive through this conservation area and marvel at the turquoise sea you can see why the Bay of Fires is voted amongst the best beaches in Australia.
Hobart is a great place to base yourself on a trip to Tassie. A small, easy to navigate town with some traditional style accommodation and known for its wonderful local cuisine. A visit to Hobart isn't complete without an afternoon at Mona (Museum of Old and New Art) this art gallery is truly a unique and inspiring experience.
