In the far northwest, Tasmania is remarkably remote, boasting dense rainforests and barren beaches that blow clean and blustery throughout the year. Elsewhere, the scenery is equally as wild, where native species like penguins and platypuses roam freely in their natural environment.

By day, you can bask on beautiful beaches and, when night draws in, shack up in charming towns that ooze historic narratives and proffer visitors an authentic opportunity to try all things Tasmanian.

The north west of the island acts as a gateway to the last unspoiled corners, where stunning coastlines sit side by side with tasty food trails and lush national parks. Around every twist and turn, you can marvel at a newly inspired view, from the peaks of Mount Roland to Table Cape near Wynyard. The cities of the north perch prettily on the water’s edge, promising relaxed seaside scenes that back onto temperate rainforests filled with Aboriginal heritage sites and a heavy dose of cultural history.
