TAS ATAS Travel Agents

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.

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.

Heading to the Apple Isle? So, where do you start?

Tasmania may be Australia's smallest state by area, but it's roughly the same size as Ireland or Switzerland. And like both of those places, Tasmania has plenty to offer the visitor.

HOBART: More than just a gateway

First settled by the British in 1803 as a penal colony to prevent claims to the land by the First French Empire during the Napoleonic Wars, it is believed that Tasmania was occupied by indigenous peoples for more than 30,000 years before British colonisation.

Swiftly after that first British settlement, Hobart was founded in 1804 making it Australia's second oldest capital city after Sydney. Today, much of that rich history and heritage is on display in the elegant heritage sandstone of the city’s built environment. The converted Georgian warehouses of Salamanca are a particularly good example of this, giving Hobart a unique sense of place in the foothills of the occasionally snow-dusted Mount Wellington.

Hobart might be the state’s primary gateway—Launceston being the other—but it’s a world-class tourism destination in its own right. Take a walk beside the city's iconic waterfront, or board a ferry for a journey up the Derwent River to MONA for an astonishing (and sometimes confronting) modern art encounter. Explore the city’s galleries, theatres, craft shops and restaurants creating fine dining experiences using the very best Tasmanian produce, or grab the Southern Ocean’s freshest seafood direct from the fishmongers on the waterfront.

Consult a Tasmanian ATAS travel agent to help you plan the perfect visit to Hobart.

TASSIE’S East Coast

One of Tasmania’s real gems is its East Coast region—home to five spectacular national parks including the famed Freycinet National Park with its pink granite mountains, stunning beaches and crystal clear sea.

This corner of Tasmania is also home to the legendary Bay of Fires, quaint townships and fishing villages, and some of Australia's best coastal drives. Typically operating from October to May, the Bay of Fires Lodge Walk is a four-day exploration of this region that takes in some of the country's finest coastal scenery staying in comfortable lodges along the way.

Inland you'll find historic relics of the area's tin mining boom, as well as fabulous produce and temperate rainforests. It's the kind of place that requires the local knowledge and quality advice that a Tasmania travel agent can provide.


The state's North is home to Launceston, Tasmania's second-largest city—located at the junction of the North Esk and South Esk rivers where they become the Tamar River estuary. Launceston is a centre of fine local food and wine, and in the rich farmland of the nearby Tamar Valley lavender plantations, vineyards, strawberry farms and orchards burst with their crops.

Launceston is the perfect base for exploring this region with all it has to offer. An ATAS-accredited Tasmania travel agent will have the experience, expertise, tools and relationships to help you plan the perfect trip to Tassie's north.


Most visitors to Tasmania’s north-west are drawn by the prospect of seeing the iconic Cradle Mountain—one of the state's most visited natural attractions. Set in the Cradle Mountain-Lake St Clair National Park, the surrounding landscape offers a range of great walks of varying degrees of difficulty from easy to difficult.

Elsewhere in this neck of the woods you'll find fabulous coastal drives, food trails and breath-taking national parks. The north-west is also home to the Tarkine, the largest expanse of cool temperate rainforest in the world, and a number of culturally significant Aboriginal heritage sites.
