Tasmania Accommodation

Tasmania, the lush island off Australia’s southern coast, is a desirable destination for holidays. Almost half of the land is set aside for parks and wilderness, making it possible to experience natural wonders from anywhere on the island with easy travel. Australia’s sprawling grandeur is writ small in Tasmania, making it an ideal place to plan a self-drive trip. For a longer holiday, apartments can create a cozy base to travel from to see the island’s diverse places and sights.

Hobart, Tasmania’s capital, boasts world-class food and accomodations. The Henry Jones Art hotel, located in Hobart, is a working art gallery with up to 250 works of art on display at any given time. Immerse yourself in art, food, and culture in Hobart before venturing on to see the Tasmania East Coast.

The East Coast is a place of great history and natural beauty. Freycinet, Maria Island, and Douglas-Apsey, the three national parks of the region offer stunning vistas, sparkling beaches, and wildlife to encounter. Considered Tasmania’s playground, the region is sunny and welcoming to local and world travelers alike. Hotels and accomodations in the area are often located right on the beaches.

Venture a little inland to visit Launceston, the second-largest city in Tasmania. It is one of the most historic cities in Australia, settled in 1806. While visiting, don’t miss the Queen Victoria Art Museum, or the Cataract Gorge to ride the longest chairlift in the world. A vibrant city with arts, music, and sports events to attend, it is a great holiday destination.

For a wilder experience, travel on to Tasmania’s West Coast. The least populated area of the state, the largest city is Queenstown. The Gordon River provides awe inspiring natural sights to even the casual hiker. Cruises, or more intimately, canoeing and kayaking, are the way to see the river’s reaches. The more energetic will want to venture further from Tasmania’s accomodations, into the Western Wilderness.

Tasmania’s Western Wilderness includes part of the West Coast, including Strahan, Rosebery, Queenstown, Tullah, Zeehan and Corrina. Even the names of the villages and towns evoke a quaint charm that dates back to the peculiar convict history, populated as it was with people in exile, yet still yearning for lost homes. In Zeehan, be sure to visit the Gaiety Theatre, established in the pioneering era to offer comfort and amusement to those exiles. With the rich heritage of mining in the area, there are many opportunities to discover minerals and gems on display or available for purchase.
