Why we can’t wait to travel back to Tasmania

Travel plans are looking a little brighter with Tasmania announcing it will welcome visitors from five Australian states (Qld, SA, WA, NT, and the ACT) from October 26. 

Tassie’s dramatic scenery, rich history, and free spirit are always tempting – but the fresh crop of boutique boltholes and historic retreats has interest at an all-time high.

In the north we’ve refined our shortlist to include remotely romantic sandstone tower The Keep and historic inn turned charming luxury escape, Ship Inn while another of Tasmania’s superb storytelling hotels Moss, beckons in Hobart. Housed in two Georgian-era buildings above Salamanca Place, it will tide us over nicely as we await the opening of The Tasman in March 2021.

And for an off-grid beach escape we’re eyeing off double island time at luxe oceanfront escape Kittawa Lodge, nestled among the windswept sand dunes of King Island. 

Exploring more of the scenic far south is also on our radar with Shanleys Huon Valley already a go-to for an ultra-private couple’s hideaway. 

Time for Tassie? We’re ready.
