Love is in the air in Tasmania — in what many say is the cleanest air in the world, in fact! With a landscape that is beyond beautiful, Tasmania is truly one of the most romantic islands in the world. But don’t expect to find an island holiday full of sun, sand, and tropical indulgence – although, it must be said that Wineglass Bay is one of the most beautiful and pristine beaches that you will ever step foot on. Tasmania is a completely different kind of ‘honeymoon island’ — it’s the ultimate playground for lovers of food, adventure lovers, and nature lovers, a destination you go to when you are in love, and a place you will undoubtedly re-visit to to fall in love all over again.
Enjoy a romantic getaway in Tasmania
Boasting ancient shores, spectacular coastlines, 334 islands, remote wilderness that includes the world’s largest temperate rainforest, and world class wineries, which produce that famous Tasmanian wine, Tasmania packs a massive punch for Australia’s tiny island state. Food is a highlight of any holiday to Tasmania and you’ll be able to meet and enjoy time with the local producers — from cheese makers to bee keepers and vintners to local farmers markets … a real gourmand’s holiday.
Tasmania has a fascinating convict history, and Port Arthur is a classic example of this rich heritage, with many convict sites that have been officially recognised by UNESCO. History buffs will love a four-day self-drive journey where you can discover these compelling stories. Hobart is holding onto its rich cultural past while moving quickly into the future, and was even voted one of the hottest destinations to see in 2013. MONA — Museum of Old and New Art— is a quirky example of why savvy world travellers have Hobart, and indeed, Tasmania, at the top of their travel bucket lists.
Tasmania has been voted as the best temperate island in the world for two years running, and is a place where there is no hustle or bustle. Between the stunning scenery, fine food and wine, luxuriously intimate accommodations and compact size, Tasmania is sure to delight and tantalise.
