Up and Coming Tasmania with AAT Kings

Just to the south of mainland Australia is an island that is the smallest of its states, Tasmania. Known as ‘Tassie’ to the locals, protected natural areas make up almost 42% of the land area. White sands line the east coast, hiking includes waterfalls and wild forests. Tasmania is wilderness meets the modern world – with a dash of excellent wines.

The capital and most populous city of Tasmania is Hobart, though it is the second-oldest capital city (Sydney being the first). Located near the mouth of the River Derwent, on the southeast of the island state, the coast nearby is just in reach of few islands and beaches. The city’s architecture is simple and straightforward, classic buildings built mostly from the days of convict labor at the time. Like many port cities, Hobart is a water-centric city. It is also the gateway to many Antarctic expeditions that pass through on their way to the mysterious continent below. Hobart also has a top-notch restaurant scene, many of them along the banks of the river and coast. Also, the traveler will love a visit to Bruny Island – a trip into protected nature just outside of Hobart.

On the north side of the island is city of Launceston. This city is also located on a river directly connected to the coast and is the second most populous city in Tasmania (while being one Australia’s oldest cities). The nearby wine region has given it an air of knowledge with Pinot Noir and Chardonnay being the most produced in Tasmania. Launceston has a smaller city feel than Hobart, with parks integrated into the city structure. The Tamar River is perfect for the traveler to see the surrounding areas and wine regions. A short trip from Launceston is the Wakulina walk, Aboriginal-owned and operated by the Palawa people, which goes through the Bay of Fires and Mt. William areas. This walk is a journey into the deep history of the Palawa and the connection with nature they have shared for nearly 35,000 years.

The Bay of Fire was named when a British sailor saw the rising of smoke from the many Aboriginal campfires along the coast. This walk along white-sand beaches, blue waters, and quiet creeks is an escape from the world that races elsewhere. Serenity captures the senses in the sounds of waves and wind. Wallabies, kangaroos, Tasmanian devils, echidnas, and wombats can be seen going about their business. With walks that last for different times (a few days to longer), ecolodges and luxury camping are also available along the way. This walk is world-famous and shouldn’t be missed by the traveler.
