7 Beautiful Places to Discover in Tasmania

Tasmania may be really far away from the Australian mainland (it wouldn’t be a wonder if you had to change two planes to get there!). But its natural beauties are among the most astonishing ones for those who come to enjoy Australia. It’s absolutely worth the long trip, so once you finally get there, here’s what you mustn’t miss. Do not miss these 7 beautiful places to discover in Tasmania.

1. Wineglass Bay, Freycinet National Park

It’s almost impossible to beat the view at the end of the hike to the visitor’s platform. If you want a challenge and even better view, try the hike to the top of Mt. Amos. It’s also possible to experience a bird’s eye view if you book a scenic flight. The price is around $175 per person, but the view from the sky is worth much more than that.

2. Mount Wellington

You can take amazing photos from the top of the mountain, no matter if it’s a sunny or a cloudy day. In case the sky is clear, a long hike to the something will be worth the trouble – a beautiful view of Hobart and Southern Tasmania and a perfect spot for a picnic, so don’t forget to take some food and water. If it’s a cloudy day, you won’t be disappointed, either – the surreal feeling of standing above the clouds can’t be compared to anything else.

4. Port Arthur

For those who enjoy history and drama, Port Arthur, with its violent stories of a penal colony for Australian convicts will definitely be a treat. It’s close to Hobart, so you can have a day trip there. On your way there, don’t miss the chance to try excellent fish and chips, rabbit and venison pies from the Doo-Lishus food truck at Eaglehawk Neck. When you get to Port Arthur, you’ll have a lot of infamous sightseeing to visit – an asylum, a “silent prison” and the British Empire’s first juvenile prison. The entrance fee includes a walking and a boat tour, and even a ghost tour in the evening!
