Slip away to a curious world lit by bonfires, spiced with gin and laced with soul stirring curiosities. Tasmania does winter awfully well, and it’s just warming up. In fact, in just a couple of hours leave the rush behind landing in time to sit down to a paddock-to-plate feast paired with a local red.
On this island, your daily grind is sneaky mid-morning whisky tastings, your life goals are learning to make sourdough the old-fashioned way, your hardest decision is what unconventional festival to attend, dinner dates are with devils, winter woollies are compulsory, diets are out and comfort food is in.
You can expect epic road trips with curious roadside stops, indulgent long weekends and new discoveries on an island at the world’s edge. Prepare for rituals of feasting and light, noise, big-scale art and licking flames for warmth. Confronting, exceptional, disturbing or down-right bizarre? You decide.
Tasmania. It is Australia – but not as you know it.
