If you’re looking to spend some quality family time in a sleepy backwater with all modern comforts and amenities along with exotic food then, I think you should choose Tasmania.

Right from great hiking trails to amazing National park with exciting forest life there is all that one need to keep their finger crossed.

  1. Hobart

Visit the historic town of Hobart in Tasmania, Australia.Colonial mansions and quaint cottages are around the city that is little.

And then there’s the backdrop of Mount Wellington rising over the River Derwent racing as well as the city through its heart. By wandering around the historic harbour, Battery Point, and Salamanca you can easily get a taste of history. And of course there’s the MONA museum that is incredible.

The MONA museum will definitely hold your attention with its jaw dropping sculptures, vintage automobiles and other items.

  1. Port Arthur

Looking for drama, history, beauty and sadness? Port Arthur is where you’ll find it in spades.It’s one of the best things to do in Tassie and if you’re situated in Hobart it’s accessible by means of a day trip.

The Port Arthur lives in infamy as one of the 11 penal colony sites. The Port Arthur takes you in the past times with its beautifully preserved places.

  1. Bruny Island

Bruny Island is an easy day trip from Hobart, as well as the best way if you have to experience Bruny is from Pennicott Wilderness Journeys with local legend Rob Pennicott.

  1. Coles Bay

Coles Bay is set in a spectacular location with uninterrupted views of the pink and red granite peaks.

This town is mostly called the gateway to Freycinet National Park (our favourite place in Tasmania). Nearby to the Park, you can find Honeymoon Bay where you can go kayaking.

We spend a lot of time there roaming around in the wilderness and like us it can be a perfect vacation spot for you.

  1. Rafting in the Franklin River

This is one experience, I wish everyone should have in their life.

Being a part of raft crew paddling  across the fierce Franklin river is a lifetime experience.

You’ll do cooking in the open. Most importantly you will set your tent under the open sky grazing the thousands stars that would accompany you in the lonely night.

  1. Tasmanian Devils wait for you

 

Your tour will probably never end without meeting Tasmanian devil. Though you can see see them in plenty in various wildlife sanctuaries like Bonorong.

These creature with their goofy looks will mesmerize you and you’ll soon fall in love for them.
