What could be better for your body and soul than super fresh seafood, delicious organic produce, clean fresh air, and pristine wilderness? Welcome to Tasmania.
In addition to 19 National Parks, there are more than 800 reserves that are home to a wide range of flora and fauna. Outdoor adventurers flock to the island to hike Cradle mountain, hit the world class mountain bike trails on Maria Island, kayak the coastline and take the plunge into chilly Lake Derby.
When it’s time to refuel, there's no better place than the ‘Apple Isle’. From roadside stalls to fine dining restaurants and cooking classes, there really is something for everyone. If you want to see where your food comes from, you might like to try truffle hunting, oyster shucking, trout fishing or apple picking. Or connect with the farmers and producers at one of the many farmer’s markets.
If slowing down is more your style, Tasmania is scattered with health retreats, luxury accommodation and day spas - and endless places to sit and just soak in the incredible scenery.
