Things to See & Do in Tasmania
Separated from mainland Australia by the 240 kilometres (150 miles) stretch of Bass Strait, Tasmania is a land apart – a green island of wild, mountainous and beautiful landscapes, friendly people, temperate climate, quality food and wine, a spirited history, and a creative arts community.
In the south-east of the state, the capital city of Hobart is famous for its 19th century architecture, distinctive of this historical city. Today, Hobart prides itself on its vibrant cafè culture, low-cost living, fresh air, and pleasant waterside location.
