Things To Do In Tasmania

Tasmania is either associated with stunning views or the Tasmanian devil cartoon, Taz. But there are some truly wonderful places to see, and some tasty places to eat that you should add to your bucket list.

Hobart’s Waterfront

This is a beautiful area that is ideal for those that love reflection photography. The painted buildings and brightly colored roofs are lovely to look at – even on a dull rainy day. You will often find boats and floating fish shops bobbing around on the water – which goes to say how fresh seafood is here. If you are looking to have a cool experience, then Barilla Bay Oyster Farm Tours is worth checking out and isn’t too far from this picturesque place. 

Hastings Caves & Thermal Springs

If you like unusual rock formations and something that is a little different, then this is one for you. The Hastings Caves and Thermal Springs pretty close together so you can check out both in a day. The thermal springs have wonderful 28-degree water. They are surrounded bu the forest and have all of the amenities you’d like. A toilet, and BBQ, changing rooms, and more. Making it the ideal place to spend a day with a picnic basket and with the aim of relaxing. 


So, of course, while you are in Tasmania, you should think about checking out one of the local wildlife parks and seeing a Tasmanian devil for yourself. Bonorong Wildlife Sanctuary comes highly recommended to see them, as well as the Tasmanian Devil Unzoo. And while the name might conjure up images of a small angry animal, they’re actually pretty cute. 


A historic town that has a range of attractions, an interesting past and is nice to be in. The past is littered with tales of it being Richmond Gaol, which is the oldest in Oz. It is also home to the oldest bridge too. But one of the most enjoyable things here will be strolling around the town and soaking in the sights. Grab a coffee and relax for a while. 

Maria Island

A place of beauty and the beasts. Thre are 14 convict building ruins that you can check out, and it is listed in the World Heritage site too. You’ll have to get there via ferry, but once you are there, the wildlife is rife. Pay particular attention to Wallabies, wombats, Tasmanian devils, and kangaroos. There is, however, great bird watching here too – if you enjoy that sort of thing. 

Binalong Bay, Bay of Fires

If you like to see natural areas that have a unique twist, then this is one for you. The Bay of Fires’ name comes from the Aboriginal coastal fires spotted in 1773 by Captain Tobias Furneaux. Something that makes this area even cooler is that there is beachside camping. Which means watching the sunset or rise in a place os stunning beauty. You can opt for more elevated campsites that are up into the trees. The choice is yours.
