Tasmania, Australia’s only island state, is just an hour’s flight from Melbourne. It is a heart-shaped island of uncrowded cities, towns and villages and a place where your footprints might be the only ones on a white sand beach on any given morning. Tasmania is protected as World Heritage Area or nature reserve. Not surprisingly Tasmania is renowned for its extraordinary and ancient natural beauty.
But a largely unreported revolution has been going on in Tasmania. Against this backdrop of raw and powerful beauty a new Tasmania is emerging. Cultural pursuits and artistic endeavours are firing Tasmania’s trajectory of change. Crucially they complement the island’s existing strengths.

Hobart is one of the most beautiful capital cities in Australia.
Hobart is situated on the beautiful Derwent River – gateway to Antarctica. Its skyline is dominated by the majestic 1271m Mt Wellington (kunanyi), a perfect place for a bushwalk or mountain bike, and just 20 min from the heart of the city.
Down on the waterfront, the cafes, bars and restaurants along Salamanca Place and in nearby Battery Point showcase the best of Tasmania’s finest food and wine, as well as the world’s best single malt whisky at Sullivans Cove. There are plenty of galleries and shops, and the unmissable Saturday morning Salamanca Market to pick up a gift. Spend some time following the Antarctica walking trail; visit the Botanical Gardens, Tasmanian Museum and Art Gallery or MONA – perhaps one of the most controversial museums in the world.
