Beijing, Amsterdam, San Fran… Hobart? You’d better believe it. In 2013, Lonely Planet, citing the city’s growing gallery and gastronomy scene, ranked Tasmania’s quaint capital one of the world’s top ten cities.

You’ll find no quarrel with us on this point, other than to add that Tasmania’s natural assets are no less worthy of worldly acclaim. From fairly unpromising beginnings (it was founded by the Brits as a penal colony), Tasmania has developed into one of Australia’s most treasured travel destinations. Boasting some of Australia’s finest beaches, mistiest mountaintops, loneliest patches of wilderness and most enigmatic/elusive/endangered/extinct animals, this island state is a nature lover’s wonderland.
