Tasmania Holiday Ideas

If you are searching for the perfect holiday location then look no further than the Australian island state of Tasmania. Measuring 296km from top to bottom and 315km wide, Tasmania is said to have the cleanest air in the world. This can be seen, breathed and tasted and likely spotted in the health of the some 507,000 residents of Tasmania.

Tasmania is the mainland of over 300 islands and with a temperature slightly cooler than its mainland neighbour, Australia, which lies 150 miles to the south east. Tasmania is a perfect holiday destination for walking and hiking vacations. There are world famous sights to be seen, from Mount Wellington, the Coal River Valley Wineries, Oatlands, which are home to Australia's oldest sandstone buildings to the Cradle Mountain and Dove Lake.

The capital of Tasmania is Hobart. Once a dockside town it now caters to tourists and locals alike with many cafes and restaurants where you can sample the excellent local cuisine and home grown wines and beverages.The Salamanca Market is held every Saturday in the capital Hobart and you can shop until you drop, sampling the crafts, fresh produce and wares from the 300 stall holders.

The contrast in the west and eastern sides of Tasmania are a sight to behold. On the east coast you will find long stretches of pure white beaches, perfect for sailing, diving, swimming or simply relaxing. In the north east of the island lies Mount William National Park where you can spot kangaroos and some of the hundreds of species of birds that reside here.

If exploration is what you are looking for in your Tasmania holiday destination then you will find it to the west, where some of the most unspoiled areas of Australia lie. With fast flowing rivers, dense forest and vegetation and some of the most beautiful scenery in the world you can explore on foot, by boat or kayak or over the terrain in a four wheel drive.

Some of the 334 islands that are part of Tasmania are inhabited and some are full of flora and fauna which are protected. If you enjoy island hopping then a Tasmania holiday is ideal and you will clearly see the signs of the protected islands before you come into shore.

The warmest months to plan your Tasmania holiday would be from December to March, where the temperature sits in the comfortable mid-twenties.

Whatever you are looking for in a holiday, Tasmania and her islands can be sure to fulfill your highest vacation expectations.
