Tasmania Australia Holiday Packages

Hobart to Launceston ..

The state of Tasmania is an island state, separated from Melbourne in Victoria by Bass Strait. It is largely in pristine, forested condition, although the pulp and timber industry has stripped bare some large areas. The land is reminiscent of New Zealand with its steep mountains, river valleys and colder climate. It lies just across the Tasman Sea from New Zealand and the two regions were once a single joined area. Tasmania is known for its rare native animals: the Tassie Devil and the Tasmanian Tiger, thought by many to be extinct. However, there have been some unexplained sightings. Hobart is the capital city of Tasmania. Launceston is another attractive area known for tourism.

  • Tasmania has its own unique character, somewhat more similar to New Zealand than it is to the bustling metropolitan areas of Sydney and Melbourne. It retains a rustic, country charm. Low population density may be behind this quality of life. Visit there and see for yourself what I’m talking about.
