Tasmania is an island located off the south coast of Australia. The island has beautiful wilderness areas with protected reserves and parks. Explore the beaches, forests, and hillsides to experience true nature in the raw. While on the island, visit the Port Arthur Historic Site, a former prison dating back to the 19th century and now a fascinating museum.
Head to the capital – Hobart – a city filled with history, art museums, and boutiques. The Museum of Old and New Art is a fascinating visit and is located within the Moorilla winery, giving a chance to view art and then enjoy relaxing at the wine bar. On Saturday, go looking for a bargain at the Salamanca Market where clothing, art, food, and timber items are on sale. Animal lovers will enjoy Zoodoo Wildlife Park, a small zoo with a variety of animals and birds.
