Tasmania West coast tour
I am finally getting around to thinking about sending you some feedback on our trip. In general terms, we book tours in order to access places we wouldn’t get to ourselves and so that we get loads of enriching information about the places. I guess we were disappointed on both points. I think the only place we would have struggled to get to on the trip was Corinna and the lake camp on the last night. We could have got to the other places easily. Mick was especially disappointed that the only... (more)Lorrie Marchington

Tasmania adventure holidays

Adventure experiences in Tasmania can be like the island’s spectacular landscape – unspoiled and deeply personal. With one of the last great temperate wilderness areas on Earth, Tasmania is a huge outdoor playground. The island is about the same size as the Republic of Ireland yet offers a fiercely diverse environment, from sweeping beaches to alpine tarns and ancient rainforests. It is a paradise that is shared with visitors in an environmentally friendly way through more than 300 adventure and eco-tours.

Walking in Tasmania

Tasmania has spectacular scenery, of which over a third is protected National Park or World Heritage area. Perched below mainland Australia, Tasmania is an ancient and diverse landscape, moderated by its temperate maritime climate. Its many walks will take you deep into 60 million year old rain forests, up jagged mountain peaks and along stunning sea cliffs, white sands and pristine waters. Best of all, you’re more likely to bump into some of Tasmania’s weird and wonderful wildlife than the ubiquitous hordes of people found on so many of the world’s walking trails.

Tasmania wildlife

Tasmania has many unique animals. Some, like the Tasmanian devil are well-known. Others, such as the Pademelon, Eastern Quoll or Bettong are less well known but equally fascinating. Many of the species you will see in Tasmania have become extinct or are on the verge of extinction on mainland Australia. The lack of introduced predators and high level of habitat protection on the island and inpenetrable terrain make Tasmania a final refuge - a last chance - for many species.

Wilderness holidays in Tasmania

Tasmania’s western wilderness is one of the world’s most mesmerising UNESCO World landscapes. One of the largest tracts of cool temperate rain forest in the world this 60 million year old landscape covers an area roughly the size of Yorkshire and is home to huge numbers of endemic flora and fauna including the tallest flowering trees in the world and the sadly endangered Tasmanian devil and Orange Bellied Parrot.

The Western Wilderness gained UNESCO World Heritage status in 1982 after a long battle to stop the majestic Gordon River being dammed and was ultimately the birth of the green movement in Australia, having toppled the local government and paved the way for the Green Party. Today, it is one of the last true wildernesses on earth. Raft its tannin stained rivers, walk along its empty beaches or simply marvel in awe at the size of its trees.

Tasmania food & drink

Tasmania has built a reputation over recent decades as Australia’s gourmet island. Outstanding seafood, a range of more than 100 specialty cheeses, world-famous honey, excellent meat and crisp, fresh vegetables attract buyers and fastidious consumers to the islands in the Southern Ocean. Now global negatives are adding a positive local impetus. Concerns about food safety in an increasingly polluted world have focused attention on Tasmania’s famously clean air, ample supplies of clean water and freedom from many of the outside world’s pests and diseases. Tasmanian farmers have no need to use certain chemicals that are routinely applied to food crops in other regions. Because food is GM-free and artificial hormones and antibiotics are not used to promote livestock growth, it is as safe as it is delicious.

Celebrate 30 years of Tasmanian World Heritage Wilderness
with this Free Tasmania app for iPhone

30 years ago the Tasmanian Southwest Wilderness was listed as a World Heritage Site, the only place on earth to fulfil seven out of the ten criteria, bringing to a successful conclusion a world wide campaign that saw environmental activists protesting to save Tasmania's natural heritage from being sold down the river.

To celebrate this landmark decision that put Tasmania on the eco-tourism map, Tourism Tasmania (in association with responsibletravel.com) is inviting travellers to explore the diverse natural wilderness with a unique iPhone app that showcases the best that Tassie has to offer.
