Winter is one of the best times to travel if you are keen to see Tasmania at its most picturesque. Snow capped mountains, log fires and icy rivers are all made that much more magical in the cooler months.
For those who are regular travellers, you will know that accommodation can often make or break a trip.
However the cold also means that you need to think carefully about accommodation. After all, you warm and comfortable during the chilly nights.
Whether you are looking for cabins along your mountain hiking route or the ultimate bed and breakfast, you will want to make sure that the venue accommodates your traveling needs.
When you first search for accommodation, it is important to have a rough idea about the dates you will be travelling.
School holidays are notoriously busy and during peak seasons like summer, you can expect many places to quickly book out.
Another important point to consider is the type of experience you are looking for – this means matching your expectations with what is on offer.
With a little planning and research, you can make sure that the time you spend escaping daily routines is memorable for all the right reasons. However, you will need to think carefully about the type of holiday you want to take.
Lodges are a popular accommodation choice during winter and there is a huge variety to choose from in the state's wilderness areas.
From Lemonthyme Lodge near Cradle Mountain to The Lodge at Tarraleah and Tall Timbers Resort on the North West coast, you will be sure to find something that suits your needs.
Other popular options include Peppers Cradle Mountain Lodge, Tahune Airwalk Lodge and Eagle Nest Resort.
