Best Places To Visit While Exploring Tasmania

Each twist and turn down the windy Tasmania roads hold something incredible.

The west is wild with jagged rocky Dollerite mountains that look like they’re from Lord of the Rings to the dense and quiet cool-climate rainforest beside the treacherous Southern Ocean that smashes against the isolated coastline.

East Tasmania has the majority of the population with loads of stunning beaches and surf towns on the coast.

Eva is still in Tasmania now – once she returns, we’ll start showing you where we’ve been and suggest you visit when you travel to Tasmania.


Launceston is where you can fly to from the mainland Australia. A whole heap of tours start from here there are about 10 camping, hiking and travel stores in the city.

The gorge is amazing! It has some walks where the trail is along the edge of the gorge, a lot of the time it’s suspended – it’s really worth visiting.

We’ll put together a page about Launceston soon, showing you some day hikes and other things to do when you’re there.
