Wineglass Bay

  • Seal Swim at Pirate Bay on Tasman Peninsula east of Hobart you will love love it!! – Robyn
  • Cradle Mt is amazing, the Gordon river cruise at Strahan is a must. – Vicki
  • My 8 year old son who has been over 3 times says zoo doo, Bicheno for the penguins, old Hobart town miniature village in Richmond, the raspberry farm, Ashgrove cheese n chocolate factory (all 3 are on the road to Hobart from Devonport), Tazmazia in Sheffield, Bruny island boat ride to see the seals, Huon Valley thermal pools, Bonorong zoo, any zoo really!! Especially if you can interact with a tassie devil!!! Sorry I think that’s more than 5 there is sooo much to do!!! – Natalie
  • Huon Valley Caravan park, they have just opened a Tassie devil display. Fantastic place. Ida Bay railway and Tahune Airwalk plus “The Wall” lots of other places too. – Jude
  • We loved Tasmania so much we decided to move here after our big lap! Don’t say we didn’t warn you 😜 Hard to pick five spots but here are the first that came to mind – Swimcart Beach free camp, Mount Field National Park, Geeveston (riverside RSL low cost camp), Hastings Caves and Thermal Springs, Fortesque Bay (near Port Arthur). Also Trowanna Wildlife park was fantastic. Lots of great presentations that are often interactive (we got to pat a wombat and baby tassie devil. So many Tassie Devils with great feeding demonstrations. Also not as expensive as some others. That region is beautiful too, not far from chudleigh honey farm and mole creek. Great caravan park there. – Kristal

    Hastings Caves

  • If you’re near Latrobe around Australia Day you MUST go to Fun Food Ferrets it’s huge and such a fun filled family day. So much free stuff for kids to get involved with. Small entry fee. – Narelle
  • Can’t believe no one has mentioned the Abt railway. Travels between Strahan and Queenstown. You will all have to go back and do this if you haven’t. – Will
  • We love everything about Tassie!! I asked my girls their top 5 places to visit. They said 5 is not enough but came up with…..Beaconsfield Mine (“definitely!”), Cradle Mountain, Port Arthur, Wineglass Bay (must do the beach walk too!) and Bicheno (walk the foreshore path from town around the beach, red rocks and blow hole then enjoy the best fish n chips ever at “the gulch”!). Ohhhh, now we want to go back again! 😊 – Rose
  • We took our kids (7&5) to tassie late last year. It was amazing! The list is endless of where you should go but I highly recommend Tasmania zoo, salmon farms, Tarraleah, MT Wellington, cradle mountain national park, Freycinet national park. Oohhh I could just keep writing! – Sam
