With Easter Week fast approaching it is time to start organising your next trip to Tasmania.
This time of year is full of exciting pastimes that will help introduce kids to the exciting world of the dramatic arts, with twice daily performances of the much-loved History Plays once again gracing Port Arthur and wowing audiences.
Holidaymakers are known to flock to the island in the autumn months to take advantage of the state's gourmet winter food fare, art, culture and jaw-dropping scenery.
But it is not just those from other states or countries that are jumping on board the idea of a winter escape, you are just as likely to see locals touring the region as anyone else. Winter is one of our favourite times. Find out why Tasmanians like their four seasons so much.
There are a number of activities and festivals that help to make this time of the year all the more special.
If you spend your Saturday happily getting lost walking through the Salamanca Markets in Hobart, or lazily browsing when the are returns to an absorbing shopping precinct on Sundays and other days, it is highly likely you will be in the mood for another unique experience.
Spend a few days after Easter and you will also catch the Easter sales. Did we say shopping?
