Since we have no idea what your interests are, I will assume.
I sometimes wonder, he said unkindly, who's been holding your hand all your life?
Have you read the VT pages yet?
Have you been to your local library?
Have you checked with any travel agent?
Have you tried "google" and got onto the ever-so-helpful Tasmanian Tourist Information people?
Having got that off my chest, there are a couple of things that may excape everyone else that I would heartily recommend. The Bark Museum at Swansea and the Seahorse Farm on the Tamar (both in my pages).
The usual suspects such as Cradle Mountain, Port Arthur, Richmond and Hobart will be mentioned but I would add, as must-sees, the Tahune State Forest and the Pieman River Cruise.
Have a good trip, you picked a good time to go.
Cheers, Ian

Tasmania has so many beautiful places to see. My favourite area is the east coast - The Bay of Fires, Binalong Bay, Bicheno, Coles Bay, Orford etc. If you are planning to hire a car and love coastal scenery, a drive down the east coast of Tasmania is highly recommended.

The Huon Valley is also a nice place to take a drive too (south of Hobart).

In Hobart itself, try to make it to Salamanca Market on Saturday morning. It is a wonderful market that sells a lot of local-made products.

Of course there is the Cadbury's Chocolate Factory and the Cascade Brewery that you can take tours of if you are interested in that sort of thing.

Tasmania is a beautiful place. It is my home state and although I have traveled to many places I still think it is my favourite place in the world.

Have a great trip!

Ps. Make sure you pack plenty of warm clothes because it can still be quite chilly in August/September.

Hi, There are so many great places to visit. Cradle Mountain is fabulous at this time of year if you enjoy a little snow and log fires. One place I suggest is Cradle Chalet Botique lodge. Launceston is Great, Cruises up the Tamar, Wine tours, many historical towns nearby, seahorse world, plus many really good restaurants. Hobart has loads of attractions including Salamanca, great drive up Mt. Wellington and a short drive to the Huon. I stayed at an excellent little place on the East Coast called Fleur's by the sea bed & breakfast. If anyone is staying in Launceston, check out the Edwardian ( as the accommodation is a treasure trove and I got a free Tasmanian Wine for staying three nights. Launceston is really a fantastic friendly place to visit.

Travel Tips for Hobart

Reggie Mania!!

by Gwynneth

Reggie is the first Tasmanian in a Big Brother house and has won the hearts of Australians everywhere.

Thousands of "Go Reggie" bumper stickers thanks to Eye Spy Signs have been given away.

As part of the campaign shops and businesses, homes and even a towtruck have been decorated with 'GO Reggie' signs and posters with a $200 prize for the best effort.

Bakeries have produced "Go Reggie" cakes and biscuits. The Kitchen Bakery is now selling thousands of kiss biscuits per week all aound Australia and even to Canada and the UK! Each biscuit is adorned with Reggie's face and the words "Go Reggie".

People have hosted weekly Eviction Parties at Wrest Point with supporters dressing up, listened to chats with Reggie's family and friends and watched Big Brother on a huge screen.

Tassie has done whatever it took to get Reggie over the line to win the $250,000!

Congratulations Reggie!

Seconds after I drove out of...

by photobf

Seconds after I drove out of Economy Rental, I proceeed to scrap a car...I was too far over to the LEFT! Oops! This is why Economy Rental was good. All of the cars are old, so they already have scratches. It cost me $392 for 2 weeks.

Mt Wellington

by liketotravel234

You can't visit Hobart and not visit Mt. Wellington. Dress warmly, as it was quite cool even in Summer. Although it is very windy, the view from the top makes it more than worth it. With a view of the city and surrounding mountains and valleys, put everything in Hobart into perspective. You have to have a look!

Do A Wandering Around Battery Point

by xuessium

Battery Point in Hobart is seeped with history and is named after a Battery of guns (long since removed) that were established on the point in 1818. It is an old port and maritime village. There are plenty of pretty buildings including the Arthur Circus Cottages and St. George's Anglican Church among other interesting things to see and do. You will also see Van Diemen's Land Folk Museum, a lovely Georgian building amongst beautiful grounds. It is open everyday from 10.30am - 5.00pm during the week and noon - 5.00pm on the weekend.

Today, Battery Point is not just a residential area but also home to several more upmarket restaurants/eateries as well as cosy Bed & Breakfasts. Perfect place to stay for a honeymooning couple. A very quaint, quiet and dignified place to take a stroll through in the evening just admiring the many well preserved historical buildings and manors. Architecture-buffs should not miss this spot. I was admiring this lovely brick mansion, half expecting it to be a historical building and pop, out came this family with kids going out for dinner. Astounding!

Mt. Wellington

by seamandrew

This mountain, standing tall behind the city adds to the beautiful city skyline. Many enjoy the trip up to the summit of Mt. Wellington where you have spectacular views of the area around Hobart. There are observation decks up at the summit as well as an observation center where you can find shelter from the quite often harsh winds up there. In the winter, snow covers the mountain for about 2 months and the summit is off limits. I don't know when it will be, but on my next trip to Tasmania, I intend to go up to the summit!
