Hobart Destination Passage

Hobart is a world-class destination with captivating history, a picturesque harbour, rugged mountains, gourmet food and wine experiences, and a strong arts and cultural scene – the city has something for everyone. With southern Tasmania’s main attractions in close proximity, visitors can experience the best of this beautiful region even on the shortest of stays.

Hobart is the perfect base for exploring Southern Tasmania. Take a ferry from central Hobart to visit the world’s largest collection of private art, Mona. Mount Field National Park and Bruny Island are easily accessible for day trips. Experience Tasmania’s pristine waterways by yacht, luxury catamaran or power vessel and enjoy fresh local produce, award-winning wines, whisky, spirits and craft beers at a variety of cellar doors, breweries and restaurants across the region.

If you have a few days pre or post conference, consider hiring a car to explore the island further.

East Coast of Tasmania

With coastal beaches and landscapes to rival any in the world, the natural beauty of the East Coast can be accessed by one of the best scenic drives in the country. The Great Eastern Drive will bring you through historic townships, with direct access to fresh seafood, award winning wines and friendly local characters. Untouched national parks, pristine waterways, world-famous coastal kelp forests and the illuminating pink granite Hazard mountains, provide an abundance of adventurous outdoor activities.

The jewel on the east coast is Freycinet Peninsula, home to dramatic pink granite peaks, secluded bays, white sandy beaches and abundant birdlife. Located within the national park is Freycinet Lodge, nestled on the waterfront and surrounded by forest, and Saffire Freycinet, one of Australia’s most luxurious lodges.

Launceston & The North

The riverside city of Launceston has a streetscape brimming with elegant colonial and Victorian architecture, interspersed with century-old parks. Its vibrant food and wine scene has recently transformed the city. Launceston’s Seaport precinct is the perfect place to enjoy a stroll along the riverside boardwalk with a variety of cafés, bars and restaurants.

Art and design also take a front-row seat in this charismatic city, together with the iconic Cataract Gorge – a natural oasis in the middle of the city. The Gorge is only a 15-minute walk from the CBD and offers walking and hiking trails, picturesque gardens and stunning views of the natural ravine and cliff grounds. Within a 20-minute drive of Launceston are the elegant historic towns of Longford and Evandale, the picturesque Tamar Valley wine regions, some of the best mountain biking in the world and two of the world’s top golf courses — Barnbougle Dunes and Lost Farm. For those interested in wildlife and Aboriginal heritage, the Narawntapu National Park to the north is a must-see.

Launceston has retained its identity as friendly and accessible, while still offering all the amenities of a city. Visitors are captivated by Launceston’s natural attractions, especially the spectacular Cataract Gorge, within a walkable distance of the CBD, its charming parks and gardens and its historic architecture.

Northwest & West Coast of Tasmania

Tasmania’s North West and West Coast regions are home to some of Australia’s most beautiful natural environments, untouched for centuries and abundant with wildlife and native flora. Tasmania’s Wilderness World Heritage Area is on its doorstep and, along with its national parks, provides hiking trails, white water rafting, luxury cruises and food trails, spoiling visitors with captivating views at every turn.

Home to Cape Grim’s air monitoring station that regularly records the world’s cleanest air, expansive agricultural lands offer an abundance of fresh produce, chocolate, cheese, whisky, honey and home-style treats keep hungry visitors happy with genuine paddock-to-plate experiences. With only a short drive to the UNESCO protected Tarkine, the world’s second-largest cool temperate rainforest, the crisp, pure air and untouched wilderness of the North West and West Coasts will take you back in time, and give you a deeper connection to the island state.

The bustling coastal port city of Devonport is the gateway to the North West and beyond, hosting the Spirit of Tasmania ferries on their daily voyages to and from Melbourne. A leisurely hour’s drive from the coast, Cradle Mountain National Park offers some of Australia’s most famous walking trails and forest adventures through spectacular landscapes and ancient forests.
