Tasmania is all about the natural beauty, coupled with the fine food and wine. There are literally hundreds of wineries to visit and many of them have fine restaurants usually serving local produce and wine, as the weather in Tasmania is ideal for growing quality produce.

There are also many active things to do outdoors, including:

  • Hiking in the many parks and forests
  • Sea kayaking and canoeing
  • Rock climbing and abseiling
  • Biking
  • Boating, diving and fishing
  • White water rafting
  • Caving

Tasmania is steeped in Australian history, with the penal colony Port Arthur a major attraction for many visitors. Located in the south east, Port Arthur has great tourist facilities and guided tours of the historic site, with a museum and trip on the ferry to the surrounding islands.

The other notable penal colonies housed around Macquarie Harbour are Sarah Island (also known as Settlement Island) and Grummet Island which are located on the west coast of Tasmania. You can now sail around the picturesque Macquarie Harbour, which is also called Hell's Gate, due to the narrow and hazardous entry.
