Tasmania

Overview

Almost a fifth of Tasmania is designated and protected World Heritage Area - that's 1.4 million hectares! Tassie's wilderness and natural landscapes span a greater range of natural and cultural values than any other region on earth.

Immerse yourself in the world’s last great temperate wilderness – in pristine wild coastlines, untamed forests, natural vaults of Aboriginal treasures and an extraordinary array of indigenous plants and animals.

It is through these dramatic landscapes that the Mark Webber Challenge takes place, and with good reason. Breathe the cleanest air you’ll ever experience, and soak up the tranquillity – from a kayak, from a mountain top, or immersed in your hot tub while gazing at the stars. Yet you’ll be surprised at how easy it is to walk into the wild, 40% of Tassie is home to national parks and most experiences are less than an hour from where you sleep.

It is also very much worth your time to explore the laidback city of Hobart that’s bringing itself into international focus with MONA, Museum of Old and New Art,  a destination itself offering a vineyard, accommodation, fine dining, wine bar, cellar door tastings,  and of course, the radical museum and art gallery. Take a day’s drive to Port Arthur for an insight into the history that has built so much of Tasmania’s sandstone heritage.

Lightfoot Travel has combed the island for the best experiences to offer in epicurean delights, oudoor trekking, and luxury accommodation.
