Tasmania

Latest deals on flights, hotels, activities and more

Tasmania is Australia’s island state. It lies south of the mainland and has a unique, almost European climate. Australia’s most mountainous state, it has so many national parks that UNESCO collated them all into the Tasmanian Wilderness World Heritage Area. Known for the now-extinct Tasmanian Tiger and the endangered Tasmanian Devil, the state is a haven for wildlife. It also produces some of Australia’s best apples, whisky and wine. A trip to King Island will yield exceptional cheese, beef and lobsters, too. And when you escape the wilderness, Hobart can take care of all your creature comforts.
