Discover Tasmania | City in Australia known for World Heritage wilderness, great food and wine.

Experience Tasmania’s World Heritage wilderness, great food and wine, compact cities and clean air. Tasmania has four distinct seasons with the warmest months being December to March. The average maximum daily summer temperatures are between 17 and 23 degrees Celsius and winter daily temperatures sit between 3 and 11 degrees Celsius. Rainfall varies dramatically across the island. Hobart, with an average of 626 millimeters is Australia’s second-driest capital city (after Adelaide), while on the west coast an annual average of 2,400 mm ensures the rainforest thrives. Hobart is gateway to historic Port Arthur, the wildlife of Bruny Island and Maria Island, and breathtaking Wineglass Bay in Freycinet. From Launceston or Devonport, discover Cradle Mountain-Lake St Clair National Park, Liffey Falls and Flinders Island in Bass Strait.  Discover Tasmania’s wild west coast via Strahan. Tasmania is a natural haven for Australian wildlife. Bennetts wallabies, seals, penguins and wedge-tailed eagles can be found without venturing too far from the state’s capital, Hobart, and encounters with friendly wildlife are an almost inevitable feature of travels around the state.About the size of a small dog, the Tasmanian devil is the world’s largest surviving carnivorous marsupial and is found only in Tasmania. The discordant snarls, screeches and growls they make are believed to have contributed to the naming of the devil and they are often heard fighting over food and during mating.
