Tassie makes New York Times’ must-visit list for 2024
Tasmania may no longer be Australia’s best kept secret after it was declared one of the top places in the world to take a holiday this year.
Australia’s smallest state — both by size and population — scored a top 30 spot in the New York Times’s highly anticipated Best Places to Visit in 2024 list.
The list is released annually to much fanfare and sends hordes of travellers to each destination.
And if you want to know what all the fuss is about join us on one of our Tassie pack-free walks – and the good news is we have 10 tour to choose from!
From Hobart, you can explore the Three Capes with its dramatic coastline of sea cliffs and eucalypt forests. You’ll walk Cape Raoul and Cape Hauy and see Cape Pillar from the air on a helicopter or sea on a cruise.
Also Bruny Island – with its towering cliffs, rich eucalypt forests and white beaches – and Maria Island – with its abundant wildlife, spectacular scenery and rich colonial history – are a quick ferry ride from Hobart.
And up north, you can get to the iconic Bay of Fires – with its famous granite tors and squeaky clean beaches and world-famous views, or just across the water is Flinders Island, which we reckon is one of Tassie’s best kept secrets!
In the northwest we have the wonderful Tarkine wilderness. You’ll spend four days exploring magnificent rainforests, wild coast and dramatic mountains. Plus you’ll experience a spectacular private cruise to the start of your walking experience on day 2 and stay at Corinna Wilderness Lodge on the pristine Pieman River.
In the centre we have three incredible walks – Cradle Mountain (4 days); Cradle Mountain and the Walls of Jerusalem (5 days) and Lake Pedder and South West Wilderness (3 days). All three walks showcase what the state is most famous for – its mighty mountains, gorgeous lakes and amazing natural colours.
Everyone of these walks offers breathtaking beauty and plenty of creature comforts including first-class meals and accommodation.
And don’t get us started on the food and wine…!
