What are the best places to go in Tasmania?
Tasmania has a lot to offer visitors and plenty of places worth visiting, from the crystal-clear waters, white sands and green bushland of Freycinet National Park to the many interesting attractions and colonial-era architecture of its capital Hobart. There’s lots of fun to be had for locals and visitors alike. Tasmania has a lot to offer families, couples, solo travellers and groups!
You could easily entertain yourself for days in and around Hobart, with everything from brewery, whisky and wine tours to kayaking on the harbour. It’s a lovely place to explore and sample the local product. You’ll also find plenty of tours to historic sights, attractions like Salamanca Market, and must-see areas elsewhere in Tasmania (like Port Arthur Historic Site) departing from Hobart, making the city a popular base for many visitors.
There’s a little bit of something for every kind of adventure seeker on this modestly-sized island, around 240 kilometres off mainland Australia. Aside from the state capital of Hobart, second city Launceston is a popular destination in its own right, as well as a gateway to the island’s north. Adventure seekers, nature lovers and foodies will feel right at home here. There are experiences suitable for people of all ages, like horse riding, tree top ropes courses, segways and even the opportunity to travel back in time at the Penny Royal theme park experience. And don’t miss the chance to take a stroll around the natural wonder of Cataract Gorge, just a short walk from the city.
As motorsport fans will know, Symmons Plains Raceway is just a short distance from Launceston and Baskerville Raceway in Hobart’s northern suburb of Old Beach. With a variety of driving experiences on offer, it’s well worth a visit for anyone with a need for speed.
If it’s magnificent scenery and wilderness you want, Tasmania has plenty of it. Cradle Mountain, Port Arthur and Tasman Island, Bruny Island, and the Bay of Fires region offer world-class experiences in breathtaking landscapes.

For an incredible natural experience, don’t miss the chance to take a wilderness cruise to Bruny Island. You’ll see deep sea caves and the iconic sea-stacks rising from Tasman Sea. Look out for bottlenose dolphins (and during the migration season humpback and southern right whales) and plenty of Australian fur seals as you pass imposing sea cliffs. This is one trip you won’t want to forget your camera for.
Tasmania’s the ideal place to take your adventuring up a level, and what better way to do it than with a helicopter ride or hot air balloon flight? Take in the remarkable Port Arthur scenery and sights from a helicopter or get the best views of picturesque Northern Tasmania in a hot air balloon. Or for added adventure, why not book in for some aerobatics or your first hands-on instructional flight?
If it’s a real adrenaline rush you want, canyoning, abseiling and caving at Dove Canyon, Cradle Mountain is an activity that ticks all the boxes. This action-packed day is an incredible way to get active and, with the help of expert guides, see parts of this stunning world heritage area that you’d never normally get close to. No previous experience necessary!
Tasmania driving experiences
Baskerville Raceway, Hobart and Symmons Plains near Launceston offer a range of fun driving experiences, giving you the chance to get behind the wheel of everything from a Mini Cooper to an Aston Martin. With expert instruction included it’s an amazing way to put the fun back into driving and push your skills (as well as the speed of the vehicle) to new levels. There’s even the option to drive your own car, which is a great way to find out what it’s capable of in a safe environment, without a speed limit.
Driving doesn’t have to be limited to on the road or around the track. Explore the Tasman National Park in style by getting off road in a Can-am 4x4 ATV. It’s a unique way to see more of the area and spot native wildlife.
