Hidden away off the south of the Australian coast, Tasmania is a true land of contrasts.
From white, sandy beaches as far as the eye can see to UNESCO World Heritage nature reserves, the colonial architecture of the capital Hobart, and tropical forests, the Australian island state is filled with surprises.
Tasmania is the smallest state in Australia but boasts an abundance of everything that the world loves about the country. If you want to be immersed in nature, Tasmania is the place to go. Kangaroos, dolphins, whales and, if you’re looking for something more exotic, Tasmanian devils… the unique fauna offers a multitude of extraordinary encounters.
Nature inspires and awards Tasmanian culture with a permanent breath of fresh air. Designers, artists and performers use their environment to create and celebrate their creativity in their own unique way, attracting crowds of locals proud of their roots during the many festivals and events held there.
All sorts of sometimes spontaneous shows pay tribute to the spirit of the island. Music, theater, museums old and new, numerous art galleries… its art is as diverse as it is intriguing, revealing every facet of this small and welcoming land. Hobart is also home to one of the world’s largest collections of contemporary art, found at the Museum of Old and New Art. If residents are immersed in their past, it is because Tasmania carries the weight of a heavy history. Many elements of today’s landscape pay testament to this, including Port Arthur, which is probably the most representative. More than 12,000 hardened criminals were deported to this former prison by Britain in the early 1800s to be used for labor.
Today, Hellyers Road is the largest distillery in Australia.
