In Tasmania, you will discover a land where the world’s cleanest air revives you, where World Heritage wilderness is a short drive from your lodge and where you can savour fine food and wine right at its source.
An archipelago of more than 300 islands, Tasmania is only 240 kilometres (150 miles) south-east of mainland Australia – just an hour’s flight or overnight sea crossing aboard Spirit of Tasmania from Melbourne. A different world has never been so easy to get to. Here, you can experience the tranquillity of a white crescent beach, lapped by turquoise seas. Cruise along a coastline of towering sea cliffs, sculpted over millennia by the Southern Ocean and Tasman Sea. Immerse yourself in exquisite wilderness – ancient rainforests so precious they have been preserved for all time, sweeping alpine meadows, mighty rivers and craggy mountains. Gaze at a night sky woven with countless stars, and in winter, watch the colours of the Aurora Australis swirl above you.
