Striking Cape Hauy
Part of the Tasman National Park on the Tasman Peninsula, the dramatic dolerite columns and cliffs at Cape Hauy are popular areas for climbing and abseiling. Known as ‘sea stacks’, the ‘Candlestick and ‘Totem Pole’ form the spectacular scenery of Cape Hauy and are well worth a visit. 
There are also great coastal walks on the Peninsula that take in other breathtaking landscapes, such as Cape Raoul and Cape Pillar.

Southern Snow
Tasmania has a cool temperate climate with four distinct seasons. It is also the lowest point of Australia, meaning it receives snowfall in high lying places as well as some of the coldest regions in the country.
The many beautiful and striking mountains peak through snow during the winter time. One such iconic sight is Mount Wellington looming snowcapped over the capital Hobart. It’s worth braving the chill to look down from one of these gorgeous rocky pinnacles to the natural landscape below.

Tasmania, the Next Foodie Destination

The Wall Street Journal recently published an article all about some of our favourite local foodie spots:

The culinary destinations highlighted here are well worth a pilgrimage from the mainland. They’re scattered around Tasmania, from Hobart, the capital city on the southern tip, to Launceston in the north. It’s easy to rent a car, and the drives through rolling, craggy countryside are so scenic you might not want them to end—until you get hungry.”

We couldn’t agree more! If you love to sample world class food and wine, Tasmania is the place for you. Traversing the island are a plethora of incredible restaurants, wineries, cheeseries and locally produced food all for you to savour.

Majestic Grandeur

Mt Field National Park is found just 64 kilometres from Hobart, and yet once in the park itself you feel a million miles away. 

Home to both the lovely Russell Falls and Horseshoe Falls, visitors can explore the national park via multiple walking tracks, meandering amongst the lush rainforest and astounding in the incredible tall trees that seem to go on forever. 

Further through the park is Lake Dobson popular for its long day walks and as being one of Tasmania’s most well known skiing areas.
