More and more with each passing year, Tasmania steals the limelight from its mainland cousins. On Boxing Day the enormous Sydney-to-Hobart yacht race fleet sets sail for Hobart, bringing the Apple Isle into global focus. The Hobart International women’s tennis event is an increasingly important pathway to Grand Slam glory at the Australian Open each January. And on the culinary-cultural landscapes, Taste of Tasmania, MONA FOMA and the Dark Mofo festivals are becoming landmark events drawing visitors from all over Australia and around the world.
The engine at the centre of much of Tasmania’s cultural revolution is the remarkable MONA – Museum of Old and New Art. MONA is the largest privately funded museum in the Southern Hemisphere. The subversive museum and its associated hotel, winery, brewery and restaurant beside the Derwent River are, themselves, major tourism drawcards in their own right.Bridestowe Lavender Estate in the north east of Tasmania.

In recent years, too, Tassie’s profile as a source of some of the finest produce on the planet has exploded. Yes, indeed, despite its southerly position and cool climate, this is a serious hot-spot for foodies.
Whether you're heading to Hobart for a quick immersion in MONA, hitting the road to explore every nook and cranny of the Apple Isle, taking a hike along some of the world’s best walking trails, or simply dropping in for a fill of Tassie’s best fare, a local Tasmania travel agent armed with local knowledge, insider’s tips and priceless first-hand experience can make the difference between a deep dive and barely scratching the surface.Taste of Tasmania - The annual event held in Hobart in December through to January
