Looking for ideas for things to see and do in Tasmania? In this episode of the Tour the World travel TV series, we’re on the road a little closer to home, on a fabulous tour around our very own ‘Tas-mazia’.

Tasmania may be our smallest state, but it punches well above its weight in terms of things to see and do.

If you’re planning a visit to the region, this episode of Tour the World with Evergreen Tours — hosted by The Big Bus tour and travel guide’s editor Adam Ford — is packed with Tasmania travel ideas and inspiration, including culture, dining, history, shopping and relaxation must-sees and dos.

Whether you plan to travel with a tour group or independently, in this episode you’ll get information about visiting Hobart, the fascinating Port Arthur Historic Site, majestic Freycinet and Cradle Mountain National Parks, the picturesque fishing port of Stanley, and the historic town of Strahan on the rugged west coast.

In this video we set off from Hobart — Australia’s second oldest capital city — which is packed with a wealth of Georgian, Victorian and Edwardian architecture.

On our way up the East Coast, we explore picturesque towns and historic sites — including Richmond and Port Arthur. We also pay a visit to the superb Bonorong Wildlife Sanctuary to meet the resident Tassie devils.

Heading inland, we drive through the beautiful Tamar Valley near Launceston, and stop in the town of Beaconsfield — infamous for the mining disaster of 2006. Then it’s on to the fabulous Cradle Mountain-Lake St Clair National Park to enjoy a walk in this world-renowned natural landscape.

The tour winds its way over to the wild and woolly west coast, where we cruise up the mighty Gordon River. Then it’s back to Hobart in time for the weekly Salamanca Market.
