With some of the world's finest hand-crafted goods to choose from, it is no wonder that so many visitors to the island state enjoy shopping in Tasmania.
And while trekking through the wilderness is always a fun activity, spending time browsing through artisan stores can be just as enjoyable.
Whether you have a passion for wilderness photography, wood crafts, wool products or unique holiday mementos, you are sure to find the perfect keepsake.
Among some of the top shopping destinations is the Design Centre of Tasmania in Launceston. This retail outlet specialises in wood craft and buyers can find anything from giant Huon pine clothes pegs to designer ornaments made from locally sourced myrtle.
The city of Launceston is also home to the Pinot Shop, which specialises in boutique red wines, including 'big island' vintages and premium international varieties.
If you are in Hobart, adjacent to The Henry Jones Art Hotel is Art Mob, a local art dealer popular with the discerning, with its aboriginal art sets and exhibitions. Next door is another dealer of fine wood designs who will ship all over Australia.
There is also a cafe on hand to help you unwind after spending the day exploring these fine collections.
Over at Salamanca there are shops galore and two delis which cater to the gourmet traveller in search of produce or home-made treats that you can share with friends and family over a tasty meal.
