A island south of Victoria covering less than 2 % of the total land of Australia. It holds Australia’s premier wilderness area’s. Mountains, superb forest and great coastal areas sums up Tasmania, combined with many historic sites such as Port Arthur. Tasmania would have the most untouched or restored historic sites and buildings in Australia. However for the Off Road person it also has some extreme difficult tracks. The island offers lots of variety and brilliant scenery. But be warned snow can fall all year round in the mountains, but generally the east coast is tempered and the west coast rugged, cold and windswept. Must do destinations are Freycinet National Park, the Bay of Fires, Mount William National Park, Jerusalem National Park, Cradle Mountain and lake St Clair National Park, Arthur Pieman Conservation area, Franklin Gordon Wild Rivers National Park and South West National Park.
A great Island to visit, if possible visit in February based on past weather patterns.
