The capital city of Hobart is home to one of the world’s most intriguing art galleries as well as a fascinating convict history. Get a true taste of Tasmania in its fresh apple cider, cheeses, wine and oysters, and experience a dose of its serenity with its powder-white beaches and laid-back luxury. Looking for adventure? You’ll find that here, too. Hiking in Tasmania is world-class, with towering mountain peaks, dense forests, serene lakes and thundering waterfalls, with plenty of wildlife along the way, too.

Home to just 500,000 people, the island is as intimate as it is wild and beautiful. Heritage cities like Launceston and Hobart make the perfect base for exploring the vast wilderness, from the jagged, snow-capped Cradle Mountain to the mighty swell of the Southern Ocean. Watch penguins waddle home after the day’s fishing, feed a Tasmanian devil after dark and visit a lavender farm alight with purple blooms. Anglers are drawn to Tasmania for its incredible fishing opportunities, where they can toss a line in clear lakes, bubbling rapids or serene rivers. Add the state’s edgy festivals to your calendar, including Hobart’s Dark MOFO and the Huon Valley’s Mid Winter Festival, and it really is a state not to miss
