Tasmania is an island state of great scenic beauty with a rugged coastline, snow-capped mountains, deserted beaches and fabulous gourmet cuisine. The island is roughly the same size as Ireland, which makes it a manageable size for a touring or self-drive holiday. It lies just 150 miles off the southeast coast of Australia. With 2,000 kilometres of walking tracks, 18 national parks, extensive tracts of virgin rainforest, and a scientific proof of having the purest air in the world, this untouched temperate wilderness is a very special destination.
Why not… take the Gordon River Cruise which visits one of the world’s last great wilderness areas, departing from Strahan you’ll cruise upriver to the World Heritage-listed Franklin-Gordon Wild Rivers National Park.
