With the latest easing of COVID travel restrictions, people from Greater Brisbane and most parts of Greater Sydney can now fly to Tasmania without quarantining which is great news for holidaymakers.
Tasmania's ancient landscapes and endemic flora and fauna make Tasmania the ultimate bushwalking destination, earning the state a world-class reputation for its fine walking tracks including the:
OVERLAND TRACK Tasmania’s best-known wilderness walk can be explored independently or on a guided trip. Spanning 65km of varied terrain through Cradle Mountain-Lake St Clair National Park, the track traverses some of Tasmania’s most impressive mountains and its tallest peak, Mount Ossa.
THREE CAPES TRACK Located on Tasman Peninsula in the state’s south east, this 48-kilometre track spans Australia’s highest sea cliffs, winding through coastal heath and eucalypt forest in Tasman National Park. Bookings with Tasmania Parks and Wildlife Service are essential for all walkers. The experience starts at the Port Arthur Historic Site with a boat ride to the trackhead at Denmans Cove, and takes four days.
SOUTH COAST TRACK Located in Southwest National Park on the southern edge of the Tasmanian Wilderness World Heritage Area, this is one of Australia’s most remote and rugged walks. Flanked by the wild Southern Ocean, it spans 85 kilometres of coastal terrain between Melaleuca and Cockle Creek, and passes the island’s southernmost point. The track can be walked in either direction, but walkers generally start at Melaleuca, accessible by light plane from Cambridge Airport near Hobart, and depart Cockle Creek by shuttle bus or car.
