Explore Tasmania on a Tassielink Coach
Tasmania is a natural island, a land of dramatic coastlines, rugged mountains, tall forests and sparkling highland lakes. Over a third of the state is reserved in a network of National Parks and the Tasmanian Wilderness World Heritage Area, a refuge and habitat for rare plants and animals.
Tasmania’s isolation from mainland Australia has ensured the survival of many plants, animals and birds that are rare, or even extinct. Visitors are often surprised at how accessible Tasmania’s native wildlife is. In many areas on even a short bushwalk you can come across a pademelon, wombat or wallaby.
Regional wineries offer inspiring fine dining. Combine food and wine with serenity, modern architecture and vineyard or water views. Savour the freshest local seafood, local game and cheeses alongside a glass of Tasmanian pinot noir, riesling or pinot gris.

Devonport is situated in the centre of Tasmania's North Coast with a modern airport and the Bass Strait ferry terminal linking the city to Melbourne.
Tasmania’s capital city of Hobart is an intriguing blend of heritage and lifestyle, scenery and vibrant culture. Head south following The Huon Trail through waterways and find wilderness or head south east to the Tasman Peninsula for scenery, wildlife, heritage and adventure.
There are four areas in the Huon Valley region – the Huon Valley, the D'Entrecasteaux Channel, Bruny Island and the wild Far South. Each offers attractions ranging including towering sea cliffs, dramatic mountain peaks, ancient forests, underground caves, pristine waterways, native flora and fauna and beautiful landscapes.
The Northern Region of Tasmania is an area of rugged coastlines, beaches and friendly cities. The gateway to Tasmania, Devonport as well as having one of the three airports in the area, is the port for the vehicular ferry, Spirit of Tasmania, which runs a service across Bass Strait.
As Tasmania’s most important historic town, Richmond is one of the state’s most popular destinations, the perfect base for exploring Tasmania’s South East. Historic, romantic, family friendly, a hub for food and wine lovers with its fresh food and fine wines, grown in fertile soils under the world’s cleanest air. Good examples of Tasmania’s stark convict heritage and beautiful historic buildings.
The Tasman Peninsula is a land of farms, forests, sheer dolerite cliffs, sweeping views across the Tasman Sea and the place of the world's southern-most historic prison. It is almost an island apart.
The east coast of Tasmania is known to have the finest weather in the state, and is often called "Tasmania's Suncoast".
White sandy beaches line the east coast, and Tasmania's most-visited National Park, Freycinet National Park is in the area. Coles Bay is a popular camping area on the edge of the park for those who want to `get away from it all'; alternatively, venture inside the park to spectacular Wineglass Bay.
The west and south-west regions of Tasmania are known for their wilderness and mineral value. The largest town in Tasmania's west is Queenstown, but overall this region of the state is by far the least populated, making it the ideal destination for those seeking beauty and solitude.
