Tasmania’s a wild, half-forgotten corner of the world, an island state that’s mostly unspoiled backcountry. Its virgin temperate rainforest, mountain ranges, alpine heath, glacial lakes and boulder-mottled bays make it prime material for a hiking-focused trip. But, our specialists, who have an affection for this overlooked pocket of Australia, can show you Tasmania’s other personality traits. If the thought of some of the finest food in all Australia appeals, or you’re eager to observe native wildlife, they’ll advise you how to include these interests into a tailor-made Tasmania tour.

In Maria Island National Park you could walk among granite rocks plastered in bright-red lichen, looking for wombats and cockatoos. Inland, at Cradle Mountain-Lake St Clair National Park, encounter Tasmanian Devils in a dedicated sanctuary, or embark on private 4x4 wilderness touring with experienced bush guides. For a change of pace and scene, there are the artisan food markets of Hobart and the oyster farms of Bruny Island. Our specialists can also arrange for you to examine Tasmania’s past as a penal colony and visit the eerily preserved former penitentiaries at Port Arthur and Strahan.
