Tasmania

A little island at the world’s edge, Tasmania is like nowhere else on the planet. Devils are worshipped, local produce means heirloom tomatoes were foraged for that morning and a thousand remote lakes and peaks beg to be explored.

Compact in size, in one day slide into a dismal sinkhole; hear stories of a convict past; breathe the cleanest air in the world; sip a local pinot at a cellar door; and devour a paddock-to-plate degustation come nightfall. Expect the unordinary.

The island presents constant contrasts. World heritage sites meet soaring sea cliffs on the newly opened Three Capes Track. Folk gather fresh seafood plucked straight from the salty waters as they navigate the Great Eastern Drive. While others down handcrafted whisky and cider in swanky waterfront bars.

Tasmanians love old fashioned tradition and breed fiercely proud, creative islanders. Some locals craft artisan cheeses while others cultivate head turning museums.

It’s little wonder Tasmania is considered by many to be one of the most desirable regions on earth. So what better time than now to take yourself to Hobart or Launceston with Virgin Australia.
