Tasmania For School Holidays

The possibilities of a family holiday in Tasmania are endless with something on offer catering to every family member. The vast array of exciting outdoor activities will be sure to keep children occupied allowing parents to take a step back, breathe in the fresh air and feel the serenity.

The North and North West of the state has much to offer with iconic landmarks. Cradle Mountain lies in the heart of Tasmania and has a host of activities which will please the whole family. Feed a Tasmanian devil and take a stroll around Dove Lake then kick back and relax inside with a warm hot chocolate. Further north are the towns of Strahan, providing the opportunity to explore the magnificent Gordon River with World Heritage Cruises and Stanley, where you can catch the chairlift up to the magnificent Nut.

Centrally located Launceston provides convenient access to an array of wonderful destinations, head North to Hollybank Treetops, explore the city or head up the Cataract Gorge on the Tamar River Cruise.

The East Coast of Tasmania cannot be missed as it boasts some of Australia’s most pristine beaches and spectacular landmarks. Those who are keen for adventure should head to Freycinet where a walk over the Hazards Mountains and a swim in the picturesque Wineglass Bay are highlights of the region. Feast upon fresh seafood for dinner as darkness falls before a stroll along the beach to view the fairy penguins.

South of Hobart lies the Hartz Mountains National Park where you can walk amongst the tree tops along the Tahune Airwalk. Other attractions worthy of consideration include the Ida Bay Railway or the Hastings Caves and thermal springs. North of Hobart is Lime Bay, the Tasmanian Devil Conservation Park and Port Arthur, which is rich in Tasmanian history and runs the state’s best ghost tours.

The options are limitless, and school holidays are the perfect time to get the family together to explore regions of Tasmania.
