Tasmania is home to some truly spectacular scenery and a rich history that can be discovered on walking tours throughout the island.
One of the best aspects of a visit to Australia's southernmost state is the proximity of its major landmarks to each other, making a huge variety of attractions seem like achievable destinations no matter how short your stay.
Once you have driven your hire car or taken public transport to the next stop on your journey, it is time to explore the city, town, village, coastline or national park further.
This is the best way to get an up-close-and-personal insight into some of Tasmania's iconic sites, while the island state's rich colonial past reveals itself around you.
Whether you take a stroll through the beautiful old laneways of Battery Point or the quiet streets of towns such as Ross and Oatlands, you are bound to build an appreciation for the history of the region and marvel at the gorgeous surrounding landscapes.
In major cities Hobart and Launceston you will see fine 19th and 20th century architectural styles such as Georgian, Victorian, Edwardian and Art Deco.
