Tasmania Travel Guide

Come to Tasmania to indulge in history, vast wilderness areas, Australia’s most spectacular mountains, beautiful beaches and the freshest food and wine imaginable.  Separated from mainland Australia by the 150 miles stretch of Bass Strait, Tasmania is a green island of wild, mountainous and beautiful landscapes, with friendly, welcoming people.  You’ll find a temperate climate; quality cool-climate wines and food; a spirited history; and a creative arts community; all in a relaxed lifestyle.

More than 40 per cent of the island is protected as World Heritage Area, national parks and reserves. And because Tasmania is so compact it is easy to walk through an ancient alpine meadow in the morning and be on Tasmania Australia, Tasmania Travel Guide, Tasmania beaches, Australia beaches, things to do in Tasmania, best hotels in Tasmania, best restaurants in Tasmania, best bars in Tasmaniaa pure white beach in the afternoon.  The island is home to just 500,000 people, and is beautiful, yet with an intimate feel.  The capital, Hobart, is home to the world’s best art galleries.  You can drive anywhere on the island and go from beach-lined coasts to World Heritage mountain areas within just a few hours.

Families will enjoy walking across the suspension bridge at the Launceston Cataract Gorge & First Basin, while adrenaline junkies can hike Wellington Park’s Organ Pipes or embark on a multi-day trek along Cradle Mountain’s Overland Track. Freycinet National Park is an ideal spot for water sports like snorkeling and kayaking, and once the sun goes down, you can get your heart pounding during an evening ghost tour of the Port Arthur Historic Site. In between sightseeing and exploring your surroundings, you’ll find a variety of shops and art galleries, as well as eateries that serve fresh seafood and produce alongside locally made wines, beers, ciders and spirits.  Our Tasmania Travel Guide will provide you with everything you need to start planning your vacation to beautiful Tasmania.   For a complete list of the best beaches on the island of Tasmania, << Click Here >>.

Weather (When to Go)

The best time to visit Tasmania is between December and February, Australia’s summer season. Though crowds are at their thickest and room rates at their highest, these months offer the most comfortable temperatures for enjoying the island’s abundant outdoor activities. Additionally, summer is filled with food and culture festivals. If you’re hoping to hike but want to save some money, consider visiting in late spring (October and November) or early fall (March and April). June, July and August are also months where you’re more likely to find accommodation and airfare deals, but you’ll want to pack appropriate attire and snow boots to help you cope with the region’s chilly temps and ample snow.

Entry & Exit Requirements

To visit Tasmania, you will need a valid U.S. passport and a visa. If you’re staying in Australia for less than 90 days, you can apply for your Electronic Travel Authority (an electronic, label-free visa) on the Australian Government Department of Immigration and Border Protection’s website. Some airlines and travel agents can apply for an Electronic Travel Authority on your behalf.

Getting Around Tasmania

Tasmania Australia, Tasmania Travel Guide, Tasmania beaches, Australia beaches, things to do in Tasmania, best hotels in Tasmania, best restaurants in Tasmania, best bars in TasmaniaBy Bicycle

Cycling Tasmania is one of the best ways to get close to nature. Roads are generally in good shape, and traffic outside the cities is light. If you’re prepared for occasional steep climbs and strong headwinds, you should enjoy the experience immensely.  Bike rental is available in the larger towns, and a number of operators offer multi-day cycling tours or experiences such as mountain biking down Kunanyi/Mt Wellington in Hobart.  Bicycle helmets are required in Tasmania, as are white front lights and red rear lights if you’re riding in the dark.

By Boat

There are a few regional ferries around Tasmania, accessing the islands off the island.

Bruny Island Ferry Vehicle/passenger ferry running at least 10 times a day from Kettering to Bruny Island in Tasmania’s southeast.

Furneaux Freight Small weekly passenger and car ferry from Bridport in Tasmania’s northeast to Lady Barron on Flinders Island.

Encounter Maria Island Runs at least three ferries daily from Triabunna on the east coast to Maria Island National Park; carries passengers and bicycles.

By Bus

Tasmania has a reasonable bus network connecting the major towns and centers, but weekend services can be infrequent. There are more buses in summer than in winter, but smaller towns are still not serviced terribly frequently. Small operators run useful services along key tourist routes and to smaller regional towns. The two main players – Tassielink and Redline – don’t currently offer multi-trip bus passes.

By Car

Getting around Tasmania with a car is pretty straightforward thanks to the island’s compact size and well-maintained roads, which are generally uncrowded. Road signs are in English, and Americans only need a valid U.S. driver’s license to drive in Australia. Some Tasmanian customs are different than those found in the U.S. Locals drive on the left side of the road, gas is sold by the liter – most gas stations are open from 7 a.m. to 10 p.m. daily – and distances are measured in kilometers.

The Port Arthur Historic Site is the best-preserved convict settlement in Australia and among the most significant convict era sites in the world. It has won many awards and has been called one of Australia’s great tourism destinations. The Site combines rich history and scenic beauty to tell the stories of the harsh discipline and determined industry of the settlement. It is a place to discover Australian history and connect with the origins of Australian culture.

Remarkable Cave, Tasmania Australia, Tasmania Travel Guide, Tasmania beaches, Australia beaches, things to do in Tasmania, best hotels in Tasmania, best restaurants in Tasmania, best bars in TasmaniaRemarkable Cave

About 7.5km south of Port Arthur is Remarkable Cave, a long tunnel eroded from the base of a collapsed gully, under a cliff and out to sea. The waves surge through the tunnel and fill the gully with sea spray (and sometimes water – watch out!). A boardwalk and 115 steps provide access to a metal viewing platform. Believe it or not, hardcore surfers often brave the cave, paddling out through the opening to surf the offshore reefs beyond.

Built from 1836 she sits proud, overlooking the craggy coastlines of Southern Tasmania. This is the southernmost lighthouse tour in Australia. The tours operate daily. For just $15 you will hear stories of shipwrecks, convicts and how the lighthouse keepers performed their daily duties.

Wineglass Bay, Tasmania Australia, Tasmania Travel Guide, Tasmania beaches, Australia beaches, things to do in Tasmania, best hotels in Tasmania, best restaurants in Tasmania, best bars in TasmaniaWineglass Bay

Wineglass Bay is one of Tasmania’s most photographed beauty spots and it’s easy to see why. Part of the Freycinet National Park, the bay is simply flawless – a perfect crescent of dazzling white sand and sparkling blue water set against pink and grey granite peaks known as The Hazards. Just remember that ocean temperatures can be chilly even at the height of summer, so a light wet suit is recommended if you want to spend any time in the water whether swimming or snorkeling.

Bay of Fires, Tasmania Australia, Tasmania Travel Guide, Tasmania beaches, Australia beaches, things to do in Tasmania, best hotels in Tasmania, best restaurants in Tasmania, best bars in TasmaniaBay of Fires

Famous for its crystal-clear waters, white sandy beaches and orange lichen-covered granite boulders, the Bay of Fires is one of Tasmania’s most popular conservation reserves. The Bay of Fires conservation area extends along the coast from Binalong Bay in the south to Eddystone Point in the north.  The Bay of Fires area contains rocky gullies, with many small secluded beaches and inlets to explore. Binalong Bay is the area’s main beach – a beautiful stretch of white sand and clear water for swimming, snorkeling, surfing or simply relaxing.  There’s a wealth of local wildlife to discover, too, including birds that can be encountered on self-guided and guided walks. The area is renowned for game fishing, with numerous boat ramps. The offshore reefs contain rich marine biodiversity that attracts divers and snorkelers.

    Wow, this post of yours certainly gave me the desire to visit Tasmania! Such rugged beauty. I would definitely want to go in the summer as I am not a cold-weather fan! I love that the cave is named the Remarkable Cave! Everyone must’ve just been saying how remarkable was, so it acquired the name. It is definitely something that I would want to see if I were able to ever visit!

    Australia is on my bucket list, now I am thinking that I should at least visit Tasmania when I am there, thanks for outlining the short warm season.
    You have outlined a few things to see, are there any other old structures to see besides the Port Arthur Historical site. I do like to explore old castles or buildings made from rock.

      Oh yes, there are plenty of historical buildings/sites you can see besides the Port Arthur Historical Site. You can also see the Hobart Convict Penitentiary, Woolmer’s Estate, the Runnymede House, the C.H Smith Building Launceston, and the Coal Mines Historic Site. This is not a complete list, so you can really have a great time checking out historical sites if you’d like. Thanks for reading my Tasmania Travel Guide.
