Tasmania

Take a tour in Tasmania

The island state of Tasmania boasts unique plants, animals, and history that you won’t find in the rest of Australia. The most popular time to visit Tasmania is in the summer months of November through to April. We have tours from both Hobart and Launceston in Tasmania to take you to the best bits of this wonderful island. 

Tassie is a very beautiful part of Australia. If you are making the effort to travel out to Tasmania you might as well spend a good amount of time there and see all the island has to offer.  Some of the must-see spots in Tasmania include scenic Lake St Clair, the coastal village of Strahan, the stunning Cradle Mountain, Wineglass Bay and its crystal clear waters. Not forgetting the abundance of wildlife, and incredible food and wineries. Both Hobart and Launceston receive daily flights from most Australian cities or you can catch the ferry from Melbourne to Devonport which is close to Launceston.

Weather in Tasmania

The weather in Tasmania is famously varied, with four distinct seasons (sometimes all occurring in one day!) The east coast is the dry, sunny, warm side of the island. Annual rainfall in the east is 600mm – less than half the annual rainfall in Sydney. Daily maximum temperatures in summer (December to February) are between +20 to +30 degrees Celsius. In winter (June to August) daily maximums are between +12 to +18 degrees Celsius.

The west coast is mountains, rainforest, and untouched wilderness. Annual rainfall in the west is 2000mm, helping to create the stunning wilderness of Cradle Mountain, Lake St Clair, and Mount Field. Daily maximum temperatures in summer are between +18 to +25 degrees Celsius. In winter the mountains look spectacular with snow on top and daily maximums are between +5 to +15 degrees Celsius.

How to get to Tasmania

You can fly to Tasmania cheaply from Melbourne and Sydney, so if you are visiting those cities be sure to add a hop over the Bass Strait to Tasmania. We recommend a 7-day tour to see the full wonders Tasmania has to offer. However, you could fly into Hobart for a few days and take our popular one-day tours to Wineglass Bay and Port Arthur.

Where to visit in Tasmania

When visiting Hobart do not forget to plan an afternoon at the fabulous MONA, Museum of Old and New Art. Mona is Australia’s largest private museum and one of the most controversial private collections of modern art and antiquities. Who says art has to be boring?  The building is a work of art itself and the grounds are a delight to walk around in.

Tours in Tasmania do not include meals, which is quite unlike most of our Real Aussie Adventures throughout the rest of Australia. This is to promote local produce and communities. Tasmania can be a gastronomic road trip with fresh local seafood and wine at every turn. So we like you to get up close with the local delicacies and head to the shops to source your own meals. Self-catering tours mean we can support local communities and you can try more fresh food from Tasmania. On our overnight tours, your accommodation is all included. There are kitchen facilities at each accommodation and you’ll be making regular stops off to buy your food. the group normally all purchase and cook together.
