From night-time penguin spotting to sea kayaking, fishing for wild brown trout to cliff-side abseiling, Tasmania offers adventure with over 3,000 kilometres of world-class walking tracks, ancient rainforest mountain peaks & highland lakes.
Tasmania also has a delicate underwater environment, with thousands of kilometres of coastline and hundreds of offshore reefs and islands offering a range of temperate diving experiences and a rich variety of marine habitats. These include the 30 metre giant kelp forests off the Tasman Peninsula and at Bicheno’s Governor Island Marine Park.
Tasmania is a haven for maritime activities, from sailing, cruising and fishing to festivals that celebrate the islands long-standing maritime traditions and links with the sea. The annual Sydney to Hobart Yacht Race is one of the world’s great ocean racing classics and culminates in a Summer festival that includes a weeklong dockside indulgence in fine food and wines at the ‘Taste of Tasmania’. Savour exquisite boutique wine, beer and fresh produce, dine at one of the stunning winery restaurants and select award-winning sparkling wine, riesling and pinot noir to match Tasmania’s freshest oysters, rock lobster and venison.
