A Taste of Tasmania

When visiting Australia, people tend to flock to the East Coast of mainland Australia. The East Coast is incredible, of course, but people often forget about the beautiful and very underrated state of Tasmania.

Isolated from mainland Australia, Tassie has scenery like nowhere else in Australia – rugged wilderness, dramatic coastlines and beautiful mountains.

Tasmania is home to the endangered tasmanian devil, furry marsupials like wombats and wallabies, and other aquatic wildlife. It hosts exciting cultural festivals, like the Taste of Tasmania and Falls Festival. It also boasts some incredible local foods and wines. Oysters and pinot gris anyone?

After hearing one of our Aussie friends raving about Tassie, we decided to go a one week trip to explore as much as we could. One week was definitely not enough in Tasmania, but I am so glad to have been able to visit nonetheless. It undoubtedly  gave me a taste of Tassie and I already can’t wait to go back to visit.

Here is a photo montage of our short, but very sweet, trip to beautiful Tassie.
