Tasmania is an island – and a world apart – from mainland Australia. It’s a place of wild landscapes, friendly people, a relaxed island lifestyle, wonderful wine and food and adventure aplenty.
Older children who like plenty of action can overdose on adventure in The Natural State. They can go rafting on the Picton or Franklin Rivers, go sea kayaking, hike around Cradle Mountain, or learn to abseil at Freycinet National Park.
If your family is a fan of road trips, take your car over on the Spirit of Tasmania and drive through the beautiful scenery around Devonport, explore the wonders of Launceston and the charming village of Ross.
