When you think of Australia, places such as Queensland, Sydney, and the Great Barrier Reef spring to mind. These are the typical destinations people visit down under, so they’re often packed full of tourists and holidaymakers. But where do you go to experience real, authentic Australian culture? What if you want to avoid the major tourist traps and see what the country really has to offer?
If you want to be amazed by the true culture of Australia, take a cruise to “the Apple Isle” of Tasmania. This island is Australia at its most genuine. Tasmania is known for its fresh produce and spectacular natural views. It’s where landscapes soar from the mountains of the national parks to the stunning bays and beaches where the sun shines gloriously. Gourmet food trails abound across the different regions, with wine and cheese a speciality during your Tasmanian experience.
Considering Tasmania is a fairly small destination, it is well known for its vast, rugged wilderness protected within national parks and reserves. During your onshore excursions, there’s plenty of things to see and activities to take part in. Why not take a stroll up to the Montezuma Falls on the West Coast Range? Or visit a horsetail waterfall on a tributary to the Pieman River? You’ll fall in love with Tasmania when you see its natural beauty.
Are you the trekking type? Enjoy a long hike up Mount Wellington, also known as kunanyi, located in south-east Tasmania, for a panoramic view of your surroundings. Venture through the caves of Mole Creek Karst National Park in the north, or tour the Tasmania Zoo in Launceston. Almost 900 acres of old growth native bushland are home to the largest collection of native and exotic animals you’ve ever seen before!
