Popular Destinations in Tasmania


 

Hobart

Founded originally as a British penal colony in 1804, Hobart is now the most populated city and the capital of Tasmania. It sits on the mouth of the River Derwent with the second deepest port in the world. There are many attractions in Hobart that are worth a visit. For some adult beverages visit Cascade Brewery, Australia’s oldest operating brewery. Take a tour or just relax with some of their famous beer. A great way to explore the city is the Hobart Hop-on Hop-off Bus Tour. The double decker bus loops the city and stops at 20 of the city’s attractions. A ticket is valid for 24 hours. There are also headphones available to listen to informative commentary of your journey. 


Museum of Old and New Art - MONA

The Museum of Old and New Art or MONA is located on the banks of the River Derwent and can be reached by a 30 minute ferry ride that departs from Hobart’s Brooke Street Pier. The museum, which is Australia’s largest private museum, was first opened in 2011. It is owned by David Walsh who is an art collector and professional gambler. He created the Museum of Old and New Art for his personal collection of ancient, modern and contemporary art. MONA is also home to a brewery and two wineries. For a complete experience consider the Full On Turrell. You will spend the night at one of their pavilions. See the artwork created by James Turrell. You will also be served dinner with matched wine. The experience also includes breakfast and lunch as well as return ferry tickets.   


Freycinet National Park

Freycinet National Park is located on the east coast of Tasmania which has a fairly mild climate. Established as a national park in 1916 it is Tasmania’s oldest national park. Its most well known feature is Wineglass Bay which has crystal clear water and a curvy white sand beach. Freycinet National Park has some of the most amazing coastline that is well worth exploring. You will see rocky cliffs with stunning surf as well as beautiful sheltered sandy beach bays. If you are a camping enthusiast then Richardsons Beach Campground is your best choice. It has accessible toilets as well as powered sites available. Barbecue areas are available for you to enjoy a picnic. There are even all terrain wheelchairs available that are free of charge.


Cataract Gorge

Cataract Gorge is a 15 minute walk from the city centre of Launceston. There are plenty of great things to do and see here including walks and hikes, a chairlift, gardens and a swimming pool. Take the chairlift for a spectacular journey across the gorge. It is one of the longest chairlifts in the world over the beautiful South Esk River. To easily navigate in and out of the Cataract Gorge you can ride The Inclinator. This is designed to move up to eight pedestrians at a time, is wheelchair accessible and it is free. There are also great views to be had on the journey. If you feel like getting wet then have a swim in the gated swimming pool or if you are not afraid of a few eels, swim in the gorge itself.


Bonorong Wildlife Sanctuary

Bonorong Wildlife Sanctuary is located about 30 minutes north of Hobart by vehicle. It is not a zoo, but a genuine sanctuary for endangered wildlife. The name Bonorong comes from an Aboriginal word meaning “native companion” The mission of the sanctuary is to treat injured and sick animals and return them to the wild. On your visit you might be lucky enough to see a Tasmanian Devil. Other highlights include feeding the kangaroos and petting wombats and koalas.
