In 2015, almost a year ago to date, we were fortunate enough to tour around Australia’s island state, Tasmania or Tassie, (its Aussie nickname). We enjoyed two weeks devouring the captivating and extraordinary sights of the Tasmanian places on the Apple Isle, (another nickname for Tassie).
Our trip started in the capital of Hobart in South Tasmania where we collected our campervan rental and set off in an anti-clockwise direction circumnavigating the 68,401 sq metre island. This map shows our driving route:
Words that I would use to describe Tasmania would be: wild, untamed, untrodden, brutal, rugged, mountainous, pristine, densely forested, verdant, agricultural, mineral-rich, scenically abundant, food and wine heaven and down right pretty.
Here are the Tasmanian places from A to Z of our travels:
Two weeks was barely enough to get around this relatively small island. There was so much more to see and do that it left me thirsting for more. I wanted to see more of the wilderness areas, explore further the Bay of Fires coastline, maybe take a hike on one of the magnificent trails over a few days, visit some of the pristine islands just off the coastline and see more of the central areas. I can definitely see another trip to Tassie on the horizon!
