Home to dramatic wilderness, marvellous coastline and iconic wildlife, Tasmania encompasses everything we love about Australia. Start your road trip in one of Australia’s oldest cities, Launceston, a vibrant city packed with excellent food and world-renowned wine. Continue your discovery in the seaside town of Strahan, distinct Hobart and the spectacular woodlands of St Clair National Park, before finishing your journey in breathtaking Coles Bay. A road trip is undoubtedly the best way to experience the island, taking you through fabulously diverse nature, from rolling vineyards and alpine forests to unlimited coastal beauty.
