Taking an organized tour is positively the best way to see Tasmania. If you don’t know your way around this magnificent state then spare yourself the trouble of self-driving and sit back and relax in a luxury coach or bus with an experienced tour guide taking you to all of Tasmania’s best attractions. Tasmania is small in size but big on extraordinary places to see. Either Hobart in the south of Launceston in the north are ideal jumping-off points. Both of them are easy to access with busy domestic airports and regular services from all over Australia. The Bass Strait ferry docks in Devonport and this is a great way to arrive in Tasmania after a great sea voyage. There are so many places you will want to see and things you will want to do while in Tasmania.
A visit to Port Arthur is essential. This was Australia’s original penal colony and the history just oozes out of the place. The Tasmanian Midlands are home to wonderful places like Cradle Mountain and the wildlife is spectacular. The West coast is awesome. Here are some of the world’s leading wilderness areas and all world heritage listed. Visit Queenstown and Strahan and take a cruise along the Gordon or Franklin rivers that penetrate deep into the wilderness. The north and east coasts are magnificent. Old-growth forests and tiny fishing villages provide points of interest that are not to be missed. The cities of Hobart and Launceston are both full of history and there is so much to do.
