Whether you are keen to plan your next family weekend away or looking to add a little adventure to your weekly routine, you will be sure to find something fun to do in Tasmania.
As a must-see travel destination, the island state offers a range of winter activities that are suitable for people of all ages and ability levels. They are also a great way to enjoy the outdoors and reconnect with nature!
Along with the thrills that come from gliding down Mount Wellington – one of the most popular cycling routes in the harbour city – and daredevil antics that accompany any type of whitewater rafting, you can also spend time discovering the hidden wonders of the area's rich marine life when you go snorkelling; believe it or not once kitted out with wetsuits and gear, the water is not as cold as you might think. Visibility is also excellent.
So, now that you have some idea about the sheer magnitude of sports and recreational activities that are on offer to visitors and locals alike, it is time to start organising your next action-packed holiday.
Some of the best experiences for this winter are based in the state's mountainous areas – which includes the world-famous Cradle Mountain.
Visitors comment on its rugged terrain, alpine air and austere beauty.
It is also home to sweeping valleys, nearby caves and rumbling river beds and canyons that make it the ideal location to start your next adventure.
You can easily organise a group of friends to go horse riding or hiking and the region's continued popularity with visitors means that there is a huge variety of hotels, cabins and apartments available to guests.
For those who are new to the area or do not want to enjoy the outdoors on their own, guided tours are a great way to see Tassie’s famous wildernesss. For those walkers who do want to strike out on their own, ensure that you have made adequate preparations as weather conditions can change very quickly. Make sure you sign in and let someone know your plans.
