Tasmania Tourism

Located south of Australia across the Bass strait, Tasmania is the country's only island state and is largely covered by untouched natural and rugged landscapes. A little under half of the island comprises natural reserves, national parks, protected areas and UNESCO heritage sites. Tasmania was once a battleground between the British and the aboriginal people, yet today is one of the most stunning places of natural beauty, history, and adventure.

The island of Tasmania is perhaps Australia's favourite getaway for a vacation. With exquisite museums, massive spreads of open land, national parks, and the ocean right by the side, Tasmania is a wonderful escape from the mainland's routine. The vibrant culture and the welcoming people are just another addition to making this an ideal holiday destination.

Must Know Before You Travel to Tasmania

1. Around 40% of Tasmania is covered by national parks. To visit any or several of these national parks, tourists must obtain the National Parks Pass, which is allocated for individuals or entire cars at full capacity for varying durations.

2. Tasmania is best travelled across in a private vehicle. It is advisable to have one rented accordingly before a trip or have it arranged by the hotel staff at check-in.

3. Shops, restaurants and even fuel stations tend to close early outside the capital Hobart. It is recommended that extra fuel, food and other essential supplies be carried around when traversing the island.

4. A day in Tasmania can have rain, chilly strong winds, pleasant sunshine and even temperatures up to 30°C one after the other. Be sure to pack accordingly, as the weather can be quite unpredictable for most of the year.

5. Cellular networks in certain parts can become weak or non-existent. It is advisable to carry an updated map and have a sim of the strongest network providers.

6. Tasmania has strict quarantine rules to protect the biodiversity on the island. Food items, vegetables, plants and animals from outside the island are prohibited and will be confiscated upon arrival.
