Tasmania Tours, Experiences and Sightseeing to Discover Australia’s Island State
Tasmania is a magical place, a place of great scenery that is easily accessible. The travel distance between each different environment is very short. You can drive from the rugged cliffs and coastlines of the Tasman Peninsula to the rainforests of Russell Falls and the alpine moorland of the Mt Field National Park around Lake Dobson in just over two hours. Select your Tasmania activities and tours to see the best.
You will probably arrive into either Launceston or Hobart. The distance between the two cities is about 200 kms (120 mi) and it takes about two hours to drive on the Heritage Highway by the most direct route.
If you are not driving yourself in Tasmania, it is best to use Hobart as your base for tours to Port Arthur, the Derwent Valley, Mt Field and Russell Falls, Geeveston, Huonville and the Arve Valley and Bruny Island.
It takes about 6 hours to drive to Strahan on the West Coast, and then another 3 hours to Cradle Mountain. The best tour is the multi-day trip to Launceston via the West Coast and Cradle Mountain.
Launceston is the base to discover Cradle Mountain, the Tamar Valley and the Lavender Farm. There are cheese factories, and fruit farms near Launceston.
To visit Freycinet, take the multi-day tour from Launceston to Hobart via Freycinet, the East Coast and Port Arthur. This will complete your circle of Tasmania.Tour Prices
