Luxury travel expert recommends Tasmania in 2012

Shared by |tags

Tasmania is emerging as one of the must-see destinations of 2012 as travellers begin to make holiday plans for the next 12 months, according to one travel advice team.

Research undertaken by guidebook producers Mr and Mrs Smith indicates that the island state might be hot on travellers' radars, with jetsetters drawn to factors such as its pristine wilderness, emerging cultural scene and above all the feeling that this spectacular region remains somewhat of an 'under-the-radar' paradise.

Other international hotspots to make the experts' list of the top six places to go this year included Sri Lankan beaches, the offshore islands of Fiji and home of this year's Olympic Games London.

Mr and Mrs Smith explained that given the uncertainty surrounding the global economy many discerning holidaymakers are looking for more 'bang for their buck' to ensure the leave from work and the overall expense of the trip is worthwhile.

"It's not about luxe for less, as such, more about seeking quality value-adds at all price points and spending smarter," the publication asserts.

In the growing boutique hotel market Mr and Mrs Smith suggest that Saffire in Tasmania's Freycinet Peninsula is a luxury accommodation to consider, with its "unsurpassed service from the get-go".

If you are considering a visit to beautiful Tasmania it might be worth looking into the variety of options available for either an outdoor adventure or relaxing resort stay.

On its website Mr and Mrs Smith lists the east coast as its favourite Tasmanian destination, highlighted by an untapped coastline, secluded bays and amazing opportunities for swimming, fishing, walking and indulging in fine local food.

"The cool climate lends itself to stellar wines, while pollution-free waterways and farmlands offer up world-class seafood, meat and dairy goods, making for the ultimate gourmet getaway," the travel guru states.

    Mr and Mrs Smith wouldn’t have a clue about Tasmania – all they do is repeat the press hand-outs that their client properties -ie Saffire – send to them.;

    The east coast is dry, little in the way of vineyards, few sources of gourmet food.
    Anyone who knows their stuff realises that the Derwent and Huon valleys are really where it is at – Agrarian Kitchen, 2metre tall brewery, Stefano Lubiana wines, Bruny island cheeses, Nant distillery, are all world class, and Mt Field is stunningly beautiful.

    What would an English web company know about Tasmania…..
