Tasmania
Forever the butt of mainland jokes, Tasmania has shrugged off the stigma of its isolation – the
whole world seems to be discovering the physically dazzling, unique and accessible island.
Suitably impressed, and a tad sheepish, the rest of Australia has finally stopped laughing.
‘Tassie’ (as it’s affectionately known) has it all: vast, uninhabited slabs of wilderness, bountiful
wildlife, gourmet food and wine, a thriving arts scene and new-found urban cool. So why have
locals been so slow to cash in? The answer’s buried in a grim colonial and indigenous history.
Don’t be surprised if you find yourself crossed with a mournful spirit or an inexplicable sense of
sadness. The ghosts of the past are real but it’s taken until now for Tasmania to face them.
This legacy takes the form of gracious guesthouses, intriguing archaeological sites and an
independent ‘islander’ sensibility. City-slickers will find urban virtues (plush hotels, gastronomic
temples, rockin’ music rooms) delivered with less attitude and more charm than most mainland
cities. Foodies will weep over the wine, cheer for the cheese and sing about the seafood.
Out and about, the island’s natural treasures live up to the hype – bushwalking, cycling,
rafting and kayaking opportunities abound. Don’t miss curvaceous Wineglass Bay, craggy Cradle
Mountain and the heaven-sent Huon Valley. Wild places like these are the essence of Tasmania,
and their silent, forgiving presence is slowly liberating the island from the binds of history.
