11 Days in Tasmania

The smallest state of Australia, Tasmania, is a place not to be missed. The breathtaking nature and beautiful coastlines provide a scenic backdrop for your journey. The Salamanca market is a great experience when following this route; the 300 stalls offering a great range of wares has something for everyone. Visit Cradle Mountain and take the enchanted walk where you'll pass scenic waterfalls, pools, moorland and rainforest. Visit  Seahorse World and learn everything about these little but beautiful sea creatures. Port Arthur  is a town full of convict history and makes you feel like you are travelling back in time. Finally, enjoy an eco cruise and spot seals in Hobart, which makes your self drive holiday complete.

    Tasmania is a treasure trove of natural wonders with stunning landscapes, unique animals and plants, and a rich diversity of sea life all year round

    In spring (September to November) keep an eye out for baby Tasmanian devils, Eastern quolls, spotted-tailed quolls and platypus. Spring is the time to see baby marsupials as they leave the pouches or dens to become more independent. Look out for pademelon, wallaby, possum and other joeys.

    The Museum of Old and New Art – Mona is Australia's largest private museum and one of the most controversial private collections of modern art and antiquities in the world.

    Described by its owner as a "subversive adult Disneyland", the collection includes everything from ancient Egyptian mummies to some of the world's most infamous and thought-provoking contemporary art.

    Food & Drink

    Tasmania's rich soil, pure air and clean water, inspire dedicated growers to produce a truly authentic food and drink experience.

    Tasmania is a great place to learn about and try fresh produce. You can find it at farmers markets and in local eateries, from cheap and cheerful pubs to high-end bars and restaurants. You can even stop and buy from roadside stalls – in Tasmania you'll still find honesty boxes all around the state.

    Spirit of Tasmania

    Your journey doesn't have to start and finish in Tasmania, take the ferry to the mainland and let the adventure continue. 

    The Spirit of Tasmania travels between Melbourne and Devenport and is often more cost effective than flying. 

    make sure you book in advance because car spots are limited. Talk to our reservation team to make sure that the ferry is right for you.
