From less-than-glamorous beginnings as a penal colony island founded by the British, Tasmania has developed into one of Australia’s most treasured traveller destinations.
More recently, the island state has been turning heads thanks to its thriving gallery and gastronomy scene, plus its bounty of natural wonders. Boasting some of Australia’s finest beaches, mistiest mountaintops, loneliest patches of wilderness and most elusive animals, Tasmania is a nature lover’s wonderland. It also happens to be the only place in Australia where you can witness the spectacular Aurora Australis, the Southern Hemisphere’s answer to the northern lights.
