Destination Guides: Tasmania

Things To Do In Tasmania Lead

Tasmania might be Australia's smallest state - and an island to boot - but what it lacks in size it more than makes up for with natural wonders, fascinating history, and serious personality.

A veritable treasure trove of hidden gems, there's no wonder why people the world over are flocking to these rugged shores. Tasmania 's National Parks are the stuff of legends, with the famous Wine Glass Bay, Cradle Mountain and Bay of Fires just some of the immense drawcards, while the state's food, wine and arts scenes have well and truly earned the stellar reputation they enjoy here and overseas.
