Go on, be a devil and book a trip to Tasmania.

They say no man is an island. But if you did have to be one, you'd want to be Tasmania. This island state is separated from mainland Australia by the Bass Strait, and the rewards for making the crossing are rich indeed. From the urban buzz and historic surroundings of the capital, Hobart, to the unspoiled mountain and forest landscapes of the interior national parks, Tasmania vacation rentals will get you in such a spin you'll feel like you're the Tasmanian devil out of "Looney Tunes". And with so much to do, you'll need his energy to get round it all.

Old Tassie's got courage in its convictions

Once a penal colony, the historic city of Hobart is Tassie's capital, and it's got more attractions than you can shake a ball and chain at. From cultural attractions and festivals to sailing, shopping and dining, the hardest thing about a visit to Hobart is remembering to get out and explore the rest of the state. And you should, because with nearly half the island given over to national parks, Tassie's the ultimate outdoor adventure destination – whether you're hiking and biking in the mountains, swimming and paddling on the coastal beaches, or going all-out with a helicopter tour.

Once upon a time, vacations in Tasmania were permanent

Tasmania vacation rentals weren't always quite so appealing as they are now. Many of the original European settlers were British convicts, and a visit to the sprawling Port Arthur Historic Site will give you a glimpse of life on the wrong side of the law. If you want to see just how far Tasmania's cultural scene has advanced since those days, why not take a stroll in the Royal Tasmanian Botanical Gardens or drop by the Museum of Old and New Art near Hobart? It's got everything from Egyptian sculptures to contemporary art, and is the largest private museum in Australia.

When it comes to weather, Tasmania's one cool customer

If you're bracing yourself for that famous Aussie heat, then Tasmania vacation rentals are going to be a very pleasant surprise. Compared to the mainland, island living out on Tassie is a fair bit cooler, and in fact it contains some of the coldest areas in the whole of Australia. Summers are still warm in most places, but in winter there's liable to be a decent amount of snowfall on the high ground. As for spring and autumn, the latter tends to get more consistent weather, so if you're looking for some late-season hiking then it might be the perfect time.

A bit of Tas-mania is the best form of madness

More than 40% of Tasmania is designated as national parks, and when it comes to landscapes, you can more or less take your pick. You've got sandy beaches, sprawling forests, and a concentration of peaks that make it the most mountainous state in Australia. Surprisingly enough, it's also known for its apple orchards. Tassie's island status means it's got all kinds of unique species, of which the most famous is the Tasmanian devil. Best known for its fairly inaccurate "Looney Tunes" incarnation, it's a remarkable creature that boasts one of the strongest bites on Earth for its size.
