Tasmania surprised me; though it’s such a small state, it left a big impression. I guess the saying “good things come in small packages” fits well with Tasmania.

Although Tasmania is famous for being quiet, calm, and full of unique wildlife and natural beauty, there are so many more things to do in Tasmania than soak in its clean air and admire picturesque scenery.

Things to Do in Tasmania

From visiting nature spots to sipping on crisp, refreshing wine, there is something for everyone in Tasmania!

Admire Cataract Gorge

Cataract Gorge, or The Gorge as the locals call it, is a must see destination just outside of Launceston. It’s hard to believe such a beautiful gorge exists merely minutes from the city centre, no wonder it’s a locals favourite.

Do The Tamar Island Wetlands Walk

A boardwalk extends over swamps and crosses the river to two islets and then Tamar Island, and with each step you experience a peacefulness and serenity you don’t expect to find this close to the city centre.

Admire Liffey Falls

There is hot debate amongst Tasmanians as to what is the best waterfall in Tasmania: Liffey Falls or Russel Falls in the south of the island? Without having visited Russel Falls yet we can’t answer that, but we can recommend you go see Liffey.

Explore The Freycinet Peninsula

Freycinet National Park is a peninsula of pink granite mountains, pure white beaches, coastal dunes and dry eucalypt forest. It’s undoubtedly one of the most beautiful of Tasmania’s National Parks.

Cruise the Rugged South East Coast of Tasmania

We were promised lots of marine life sightings: Australian and New Zealand fur seals, bottlenose dolphins, cormorants, diving gannets, and little penguins.
