We spent one month travelling around “Tassie” enjoying the beautiful landscapes, friendly people and learning more about the daunting history.

We’ve always known about Tasmania’s important role in Australia’s history, but who knew Tassie had an amazing food and wine industry? The local produce and wine down there is some of the best we’ve had in Oz.

Besides the history and the food, Tasmania is all about nature. It’s Australia’s smallest state and over 40 per cent of Tasmania is reserved as national park and world heritage area.

On this page you will find our best Tasmania travel tips and advice including what to do in Hobart, Launceston, Freycinet National Park, the Bay of Fires, Port Arthur, and how to get the ferry to Tasmania.

Within each article you’ll get suggestions on where to eat and drink, where to sleep, and the best things to see and do.
