Lonely Planet – list of top Tasmanian experiences

Shared by

They're the guides that many of us travellers reach for to discover the best attractions, places to stay and restaurants to dine in, with Lonely Planet the world's "most successful travel publisher" printing over 100 million books.

Lonely Planet allows keen adventure-seekers to experience the world in a way like no other, highlighting hidden gems, top travel tips and handy maps.

Last month, Lonely Planet put the spotlight on Tasmania, sharing some of the island's top experiences.

Wineglass Bay

Lonely Planet points out the spectacular Freycinet Peninsula as one of the island's "principal tourism drawcards", offering scenic hikes such as the 31km peninsula circuit and spectacular views from the Wineglass Bay Lookout.

Take in "sweeping coastal panoramas" from the boardwalk at Cape Tourville or embark on a short hike in the "up-and-over saddle" climb to Wineglass Bay.

Lunch in the Tamar Valley

The Lonely Planet blog post notes Tasmania for its gourmet food and wine, recommending a "lazy, lingering lunch" in the Tamar Valley.

The stunning location is the island's key wine-producing area that has a wine route available, one which the UK's Essential Travel Magazine called "One of the top 10 wine routes in the world".

Discover over 30 vineyards in the region to get your fill of Tasmania's famous cool-climate wines.
