If you’re yet to visit, whip out your camera and take a visit to this beautiful local attraction. You’re bound to get some amazing shots!
Delving deeper into the island, you’re soon greeted by the friendly citizens of Launceston . Surrounded by the lush Tamar Valley, you might get lucky in spotting the rarely seen Tasmanian Devil, but only if you’re early to rise, or if you can make it to Tasmania Zoo . Once you arrive at the zoo, you’ll be amazed by the large variety of native Australian animals that are kept there. This amazing place is one of the best local attractions to see in Tasmania so don’t forget to check it out!
Shuffle south on your expedition as you choose between a trip to the wonderful West Coast to see some magnificent scenery in gorgeous Queenstown , or to progress further on to the state capital, Hobart .
Hobart is home to an abundance of activities and attractions, as it naturally would be. The world famous Cascade Brewery offers a chance for beer lovers to discover where their love for the devils drink comes from.
After an epic journey of discovery, drinking, shopping and eating, kick back in comfort and gaze in awe at the inspiring views surrounding Mount Wellington . An island that is riddled with wonderful sights and sounds, Tasmania surely won’t disappoint you in your quest to find some unforgettable adventures!
