Tasmania boasts stunning and often remote World Heritage Areas. There are fertile plains and open bushland, mountains and valleys, rare flora and fauna, rustic ports and historic villages all crammed into a comparatively small area so self drive touring is ideal.
East Coast

Tasmania ’s East Coast is a coast of contrast - sunshine and sea life, wine and wildlife, crags and beaches, history and adventure. National parks, fine food and wine - as you journey on, you’ll discover the flavours of the area’s fresh, natural produce.

Huon Valley and Bruny Island

The Huon Trail begins south of Hobart, then leads you through the Huon Valley, D’Entrecasteaux Channel and Bruny Island - follow The Huon Trail guide map and look for its roadside signs with descriptive stories to inspire your travels.


The Midlands region of Tasmania showcases the State’s best-preserved colonial towns and villages. Here sandstone church spires overlook English trees, Georgian cottages line the quiet streets and stone bridges are reflected in leaf-dappled water.

Derwent Valley and Central Highlands

From Granton where the Bridgewater Bridge crosses the Derwent north of Hobart, explore the Lyell Highway as it follows the course of the river past poplars and willows, hopfields and orchards, towards Tasmania ’s mountains and wilderness.

West Coast

In an island of unique experiences, the West Coast of Tasmania is a land apart. Craggy mountains and World Heritage Area wilderness.You’ll feel the presence of tough men and bold women who carved a boom-and- bust living from the mountains, forests and seas.

King Island

With more than 145km of picturesque coastline and abundant natural attractions, King Island is an idyllic holiday destination. The primary industries are dairy products of international repute, livestock farming, crayfishing, abalone harvesting and even kelp processing.

South East

Here, you’ll step back one and a half centuries - exploring the dramatic buildings, strolling or picnicking beneath graceful old English trees and cruising the dark waters to the Isle of the Dead, every moment at Port Arthur is a piece of living history.

Flinders Island

Flinders Island, Tasmania, is the largest in the Furneaux Group. The island is an ideal place for tourists to escape the stresses of city life, offering many attractions, most of them natural and some man-made or a combination of both such as wreck-diving.

North West

North West Tasmania, from Burnie with its industrial heritage and busy port, the Bass Highway follows the coast westward, almost always within sight of Bass Strait Massive bluffs nudge out into the sea. Circular Head, where the town of Stanley snuggles up against the 'Nut'.

North East

If there’s a single keynote for Tasmania’s North East, perhaps it’s colour - travelling through this part of the State, you’ll be aware of the changing tones and hues of the land, the sky, the sea. From the coast to the old tin mining towns of Derby and Weldborough, colours change.
