Top Reasons To Visit Tasmania

I always believed that a certain village, town, city or  even a small country  has always things to offer to every tourist and visitor. No matter how small it is, there are always things that are worth to see and to experience there.

There are a lot of travel destinations in my list. I wish to spend one of those  affordable Tasmania holidays in the future.  I just found this Australian island  a unique destination to visit.  It is not only famous for its unique lifestyle but also for its beautiful landscapes.

I would love to spend some days in Hobart– Tasmania’s capital  is just very small compared to the larger mainland Australian cities but a visit there is worth it. There are landmarks, museums and art galleries to see. I don’t want to miss the Salamanca Market, the Botanical gardens,  the Battery Point and the Tasmanian Museum and Art Gallery when I visit this capital city of Tasmania.  I also would like to experience a Peppermint Bay Cruise, visit to its wineries and do some wine tasting, buy some souvenirs at the Shot Tower and many more.

I would love to go walking or hiking  in  Cradle Mountain–  Being one of the top tourist attractions in Tasmania due to its natural beauty, this area should not be missed. It is  1,545 metres above sea level. Cradle Mountain is in the list  of the UNESCO World Heritage Sites.

I would love to visit the Bay  of Fires. It is very famous for its red rocks, beautiful blue water and white sandy beaches,  some of the reasons why this area is  one of Tasmania’s  most popular tourist destinations. It is located between Eddystone Point and Binalong Bay. I can’t imagine myself walking along its coastline which is one of my favourite things to  do when I am on a  beach holiday.  It is quite adventurous to go camping, boating and fishing in this area.

Do some sightseeing  in Ross– As what I have mentioned above, even a small village  or town  in any part  of the world always has  something to offer to its visitors. It is the same with this small town in Tasmania. Ross is a historic town and also very popular for travellers especially to Japanese  tourists. A visit to the Ross bridge, its sandstoned-Church, Sheep Museum can be done in a day sightseeing in Ross.

A cruise in Tamar River and See the Cataract Gorge is also included  in my itinerary. I can do this when I will stay  in Launceston, the second largest city in Tasmania.

Experience the Houn Trail.  I find this touring route very adventurous and exciting especially a trail in the Houn Valley. A visit  to South Bruny National Park in  Bruny Island with its wildflowers, forests, birdlife and a historic lighthouse can also be a great experience. I just love nature!

I believed even a month’s visit to Tasmania is not enough to see everything in this  island. At least, I have an idea on what to do and to see in this part of Australia. Any more suggestions out there are highly appreciated.
