Love! Tasmania Campaign
We grew up watching the Looney Tunes and we loved the cheeky Tasmanian Devil. When we were young, we didn’t know where Tasmania is and we thought Tasmania is Africa (well that’s Tanzania).
As we went to study in Wagga Wagga, Australia more than 10 years ago, we learned about this beautiful island by the name of Tasmania.
We heard so much about this beautiful place. The island is located at the south east of Victoria. We bet you have read our previous adventure in Victoria last year as it was unforgettable.
What are the best attractions in Tasmania?
Wilderness and Nature

The Tasmanian World Heritage Area has a greater range of natural and cultural values than any other region on earth. And with 40 per cent of the island protected as national parks and reserves, you don’t have to travel far to be walking through ancient rainforest. Eco and nature lovers, this will be your paradise!
With accessible wilderness and plenty of wildlife sanctuaries, Tasmania is the ideal destination to get up close with native Australian animals. See wombats, wallabies, pademelons, endemic birds and more. It’s also the one place on earth you’ll find a Tasmanian devil in the wild.
A Tasmanian Devil on the loose…
Yes, they really existed! We have seen wombats and wallabies but not pademelons and Tasmanian devils. We bet those devils must be cute!
Food and Wine
Have a feast! Seafood platter the Aussie way!
In Tasmania, you can stop by road side stalls with lush berries, shuck oysters fresh from the sea, sample fine Belgian truffles and pick up a bottle of bubbly from wine country so fine, it’s rumoured to be second only to Champagne itself.
Beautiful vineyard in Australia
We toured some of the best wineries in Australia and Australian wines live up to its reputation. For food, fresh seafood in southern Australia will leave you craving for more!
Ideal Self-Drive Destination
Driving into the wild, Australia…
Tasmania is easy to explore by car- it is compact, the roads uncrowded and scenery varied. The benefit of its size means you can stand atop a mountain and feel sand between your toes on the same afternoon drive. We always enjoyed self-drive in Australia, hassle free and convenient. We used to travel around NSW and Victoria during our school days, we always enjoyed the scenery.
