Hobart, Launceston & Tasmania

Discover Tasmania, Australia’s southernmost state and a place that boasts what is arguably a world of its own. Whether it be exploring the contrasting colonial and modern atmosphere of Hobart or taking in all of the surrounding rainforest’s natural beauty, there’s so much about Tasmania that will leave you wanting more.

Hobart, the capital of Tasmania, is an incredible display of contrast between historical architecture and modern vibrancy. Take some time to tour the city and explore all of the subtleties that make this place so special. It’s also a must that you visit both Salamanca Place and Constitution Bay.

For a more full on look into Tasmania’s history, you should head on down to Port Arthur, located just 100 Km from Hobart. Port Arthur was the site of one of Australia’s highest security convict prisons, where between 1830 and 1853, around 12,500 convicts passed through.

But if nature is more your thing, then don’t worry there are plenty of other options when touring Tasmania. Some of the best spots you should check out are Russell Falls, St. Helens, Launceston, Tamar Valley, Cataract Gorge, Bay of Fires and many, many more.
