Australia’s island state of Tasmania is a glorious mix of breathtaking scenic beauty, fascinating colonial history, fine food and wine and old fashioned Australian hospitality.

The capital, Hobart, nestles snugly around Sullivans Cove harbour and the waterfront area is alive with cafés, bars, restaurants and galleries.

Travel further afield and the compact nature of Tasmania makes it an ideal self drive or touring destination that combines wildlife and wilderness and stunning mountain, forest and coastal scenery.
