For those not in the know, Tasmania is region of Australia that’s even more isolated than the mainland. But that’s why it’s such a charming place: for those who venture here, the rewards are worth it. Whether you’re hiking deep in the wilderness, swimming at Seven Mile Beach, or exploring Narawntapu National Park, this place has big-time appeal for adventurers and nature lovers. And besides all those perks, there’s quite a hip and artistic community of locals, especially in Tamar Valley, which has a perfect climate for vineyards.
Tony Yang is the creator of this video, and he’s managed to capture quite a bit of beauty in his short three-day road trip around Tasmania. He started out around Cradle Mountain, moved on to Freycinet National Park, and then made his way onwards to the Bay of Fires. (Isn’t that the best name or what?) And yes, there are plenty of Tasmanian devils.
Other than some epic hiking, adventure lovers may be interested in cycling around Tasmania with a guide. It’s a great way to see the countryside, no matter what your skill level is. If it’s big wildlife you’re after, an eco tour is a great idea. And finally, if none of those things appeal to you in the slightest, let loose and hop on a Tasmanian food tour or wine tour. Tasmania does both very, very well. You can count calories later.
