TASMANIA – THE SILENT, FORGIVING ESSENCE
The island of Tasmania, affectionately known as “Tassie” has it all: large chunks of wilderness areas, beautiful landforms, natural culture and beaches that go on forever. Tasmania is physically dazzling, unique and accessible.
You can experience icons of wildlife such as the Tasmanian Devil, Fairy Penguins, unique species in natural parks and reserves, forests, bird hides, platypuses, wallaby and so much more. Tasmania’s natural treasures offer bushwalking, cycling, rafting, abseiling and kayaking.
Extraordinary cheese, seafood and wine will delight the gourmet diner and the foodie alike with cafes, guest houses, restaurants and coffee shops that delivers with less attitude and more charm than most mainland cities. Tassie rivals any other place on earth; add it to your bucket list.
BEST TIMES TO VISIT TASSIE
The weather is at its best between October and April.
Tasmania has a maritime climate with four distinct seasons. Summer (December to March) is warm, Autumn (March to May) has sunny days and riotous colour, winter (June to August) is cold and spring (September to November) is fresh but often unpredictable. Rainfall varies dramatically across the Island. Hobart is Australia’s second-driest capital city while the west coast attracts huge rainfall.
