Few places express Australia’s harsh colonial past like Port Arthur in Tasmania. I returned to Port Arthur Historic Site on my last Tasmania road trip to understand more about the place and found it to be an essential place to visit in Australia for its cultural and historical significance. This is why I recommend Port Arthur tours from Hobart.

After several visits to the island of Tasmania, I am still charmed by the place. With its wilderness, history, wildlife and stunning beaches, Tasmania tours have a lot to offer. On our last road trip there, we took a day trip to Maria Island, Tasmania and enjoyed this unique place on a beautiful sunny day.
When it comes to Tasmania, it’s hard for me not to get lost in superlatives… The most beautiful, the best, the wildest… But it’s true, Tasmania is all these things, which is why I keep going back. My exploration of Tasmania has taken many places and recently, I discovered the wild and wonderful Bruny Island. While I was there, I discovered there are many things to do on Bruny Island.
Tasmania, the Apple Isle… Not everything in Tasmania is about apples and orchards! The island state is known for its pristine natural environment and I was very curious about entering this world. But on this occasion, we were reasonably limited in time and had to find an easy way of penetrating the wilderness. Driving from Hobart to the North of Tasmania, we found a way to explore beautiful Cradle Mountain and the Tasmanian Wilderness.
Tasmania, a mysterious piece of land, far south… That name sounded dreamy and fascinating when I was a child… And it was so far away… Not so much anymore now that I live in Sydney. My husband and I went to Tasmania on a mini-honeymoon, just after our wedding and completely fell in love with the place. We’ve been back several times since and I can think of 6 things to do on a break on the East Coast of Tasmania.
