Tasmania Activity Holidays

Miles of untouched beauty, roaming wildlife, majestic mountain peaks and rolling rivers, Tasmania is a haven for those who want to be at one with nature.  With so much to do including diving, trekking, mountain biking and fishing, you’ll be spoilt for choice on a holiday to Tasmania.

What to see

The Bay of Fires is one of Tasmania’s most popular destinations with distinctive red rocks, beautiful clear water and white beaches characterising the area. You can spend a few days camping, fishing swimming and diving in this little haven.

Situated moments away from Launceston, the Cataract Gorge is another one of Tasmania’s characteristic landmarks. Offering amazing treks and beautiful views out over the creviced gorge, you can walk along the Tamar River to be greeted by Launceston’s lovely beach.

On the other side of the island in Hobart, a must-do is the Peppermint Bay Cruise, which is a luxury yacht which will take you around the bay and teach you about the secrets of Tasmania’s coastline. And just 60km north of the city is Mount Field National Park, known for its eucalyptus rainforests, gushing waterfalls and even skiing! A totally different experience to the beaches of mainland Australia!

Top tips

There’s no direct flights to Tasmania so make sure you book a transfer in advance, which can be done wither by ferry or plane. You’ll also need to get an ETA tourist visa which will cover you for three months stay in Australia, perfect if you want to combine Tasmania with a stay in Melbourne or Sydney too.
