Choosing holiday cottages in Tasmania, Australia's southernmost state
Tasmania is a sparsely populated state, with a large area of the island protected by National Park status. A holiday here will appeal to anyone who wants to escape the bustle of everyday life and enjoy rugged landscapes, wildlife, and some of Australia's best food and drink. The island's capital, Hobart, offers a mix of modern apartment holiday rentals in the city centre and larger, detached properties on the outskirts of town. Countryside properties are generously spacious, often standing in extensive grounds and offering superb coastal or country views.
Regional food and drink on a visit to Tasmania
The wide open spaces of Tasmania lend themselves to agriculture, and local produce is sold in farmers' markets and small outlets across the state. Tasmania's wine industry is best known for producing excellent sparkling wine which regularly picks up international awards. Visit the Jansz Winery at Pipers Brook to find out more about how the wine is made and for a chance to sample some of the produce.
The island's most iconic local dish is the Tasmanian Scallop Pie, sold at restaurants and bakeries across the state. This delicious dish features sweet, locally caught scallops which are cooked in a creamy and mildly spiced curry sauce and baked under crisp pastry. It's perfect for a casual Tassie-style dinner in your holiday rental, paired with a glass of the local sparkling wine, of course.
Explore Tasmania's culture, art, and history
Tasmania has a long and interesting history, and a day or two spent in Hobart's many museums will give any visitor a deeper understanding of the island. The Tasmanian Art Gallery and Museum is one of the largest and concentrates on Tasmania's cultural and natural heritage. In addition to the permanent collection, the museum also hosts regular temporary exhibitions covering various aspects of art and culture. Admission to the main museum is free of charge, with a small fee for temporary exhibitions.
Narryna Heritage Museum is different style of museum, and allows visitors to step back in time to experience life in a merchant's house in the 1830s. The house is fully furnished with period furniture and decorative objects, and volunteer guides in each room are happy to chat about the history of the house, its occupants, and everyday life in the early 19th century. Don't miss the below stairs rooms used by staff, which provide a spartan contrast to the elegant rooms above stairs which were used by the merchant and his family.
Visiting Tasmania with the kids
If the kids aren''t entertained enough with visits to beaches and national parks, don't worry: there's plenty more to keep them busy. One of Tasmania's most kid-friendly attractions is Bonorong Wildlife Park in Brighton. Bring the little ones here to see all manner of Aussie wildlife, from kangaroos and koalas to echidnas and sugar gliders. Children (and adults too) will particularly enjoy the opportunity to feed some of the tamer park residents.
Another great family day out is found at Cataract Gorge, near Launceston. The chairlift here is the main attraction, and the views from the ride are impressive. If you prefer to keep your feet on the ground, cool off in the large open air swimming pool, or just enjoy the beautifully manicured gardens, complete with resident peacocks. Close by is Hollybanks, a treetop adventure and climbing course which makes the perfect afternoon out for older children and teenagers.
Exploring the National Parks and landscapes of Tasmania
As a popular visitor destination, the beauty of Tasmania is that it packs a lot into a small space. The landscapes are diverse and include Alpine mountain ranges, grasslands, coastal areas, and large expanses of temperate rainforests. Tasmania has 19 national parks and 800 other nature reserves, protecting the unique biodoversity of the island for everyone to enjoy. As the island population is only 515,000, there's plenty of chance to escape the crowds and find some solitude.
The Southwest National Park is the island's largest, and is far removed from the stresses of everyday life. Enjoy walking, kayaking, or just drinking in the scenery from the comfort of your car rental. If you're more interested in Tasmania's unique wildlife, Cradle Mountain is the ideal destination, with glacial lakes, Alpine scenery, and local residents like wombats. Keep your eyes peeled and you may even spot the elusive Tasmanian Devil.
