Holiday accommodation in Tasmania

Step into the cleanest air in the world!

Tasmania is an island located south east of Australia and is separated from the mainland by the Bass Strait. The state is renowned for being a hiker’s paradise with numerous hiking trails and national parks spread out across the island. Marvel at the natural beauty of Tasmania, breathe in the cleanest air in the world and experience the different activities offered to visitors.

Nature at its best

Approximately a third of Tasmania consists of national parks with one of the notable parks being the world heritage-listed Cradle Mountain - Lake St. Clair National Park situated in the centre of Tasmania. Numerous walks of varying lengths and difficulty can be experienced at the Cradle Mountain - Lake St. Clair National Park. Stay overnight in self-contained accommodation or other accommodation options in the area. Family accommodation is also available if you decide to bring the family to experience the wild wilderness.

Freycinet National Park, located on the east coast of Tasmania, is a highlight where you can see the famous Wineglass Bay along with granite boulders and mountains, lovely coastal views and isolated beaches. Rent a holiday home or holiday apartment in the Freycinet area.

Another area worth visiting is the Bay of Fires, which consists of beautiful white beaches, blue water and red rocks and is located north-east of Tasmania. The Bay of Fires is home to an abundance of wildlife including eastern grey kangaroos, echidnas, possums, wombats, wallabies and birdlife. Choose to stay in self-contained accommodation or other private accommodation.

Take a ferry to Bruny Island, which is an island off the east coast of Tasmania, where you can see the local wildlife including the fairy penguins, fur seals and different wildlife. Bruny Island offers varied accommodation from budget accommodation to self-contained accommodation.

Historical sites

One of the top attractions to see in Tasmania is Port Arthur, which was founded as a penal colony. Port Arthur is located an hour’s drive from the state’s capital Hobart. Port Arthur is significant historically as it became Australia's largest convict settlements from 1830 until 1877 and was also the scene of one of Australia’s worst massacres in 1996 where 35 people were killed. A variety of accommodation options exists close to Port Arthur.

Salamanca Place, situated by Hobart’s waterfront, is comprised of sandstone buildings and cobblestone square dating back to the 1830s. The Salamanca markets held every Saturday is a popular attraction with many stall owners selling arts, crafts and handiwork. A selection of self-contained accommodation is available in Salamanca Place.

Battery Point is a historic Hobart village that still contains many historic houses from the first European settlement in early 19th century. Have a wander around the village and stay overnight at a number of accommodation options available at Battery Point.

Sampling the local produce

Visitors should not leave Tasmania without treating themselves to the local produce that the island has to offer. Specialities include different varieties of cheeses, apples, stone fruits, premium beef, specialty honey and seafood such as the Atlantic salmon, trout, scallops, octopus and rock lobster.

Sample the cool-climate wines at the various boutique wineries and the popular Cascade brewery near Hobart and James Boag Premium brewery in Launceston. If you are a chocolate lover, make sure you visit the Cadbury’s Chocolate Factory, not far from Hobart. Accommodation ranging from budget accommodation to high-end accommodation is available in Hobart and Launceston.

A cooler climate

Tasmania has a cooler climate than mainland Australia due to its location being close to Antarctica. The state rarely reaches high temperatures during the summer with average maximum temperatures hovering around 24°C. The summer months of January and February are the best months to visit Tasmania as it can become windy and cold during the other months of the year.

Read what one of our travellers had to say about Tasmania!

My family and I just returned from a 4 night stay in beautiful Tasmania. We have been once before staying in the heart of Hobart, however for this trip we opted for a holiday house (as we were travelling with another family of four) in a little town called Primrose Sands.

We read reviews and were impressed by what others had said so thought we would give it a go. Primrose Sands is about a half hour drive from the airport and about 45 minutes from Hobart and is a sleepy little place with a general store that offers pizza on the weekends and fish n’ chips other nights and pretty much most other grocery basics you may need.

The town of Sorrell is about 15 minutes away and on the way with major supermarkets and shops, so we did most of our shopping there. The house itself was fabulous, very clean with everything you could want including little extras like picnic sets, DVDs and lots of board games etc.

What really impressed us were the lovely little touches such as a personalized welcome note, fresh flowers, lovely little cards with proverbs and quotes on each bed and a call from the owner to check we had all we needed.

I have never stayed anywhere with such breathtaking views, the deck of the property complete with outdoor setting and BBQ took it all in and was a great place to relax after a busy day with a glass of wine and watch the amazing sunset. The children were able to discover in the rock pools only a few meters below and the beach was only a short stroll and we practically had it to ourselves.

From our base we traveled to Port Arthur which was truly amazing stopping along the way at Dunnelly and a fabulous little seaside town called Doo Town. I ate the best seafood I have ever tried from a van at the Blowhole in Doo Town. Incredibly fresh melt in your mouth scallops, prawns, mussels and calamari. I will definitely be returning for more!

We also spent a day at the Mona Gallery, what a truly amazing place and quite an eye opener, highly recommend going there even just for the architecture. The Tahune Airwalk took up another of our days and was really fun and beautiful. My children loved the swinging bridges and even tried hang gliding on the flying fox. Overall Tassie is one of the most gorgeous places I have ever been and I cannot wait to return!

We have a total of 10 adults for our family trip with most coming from overseas and was absolutely stuns of the design of the property and the cleaness its present. We enjoyed our stay very much and will highly recommended.

My partner and our two kids (aged 10 and 12) had a wonderful time in this immaculately clean and perfectly appointed accommodation. Sensational views, ideal location to many beaches, bush walks and lovely restaurant. We love this part of Tasmania and I felt truly at home. Looking forward to coming back.
