    Breathe deeply, Tasmania enjoys the purest air on earth, and while
    you’re there inhale the amazing array of experiences the island has on
    offer – tackle the wild and woolly West Coast; wind your way through
    the World Heritage wilderness; meet a Tassie devil; raft the mighty
    Franklin River; uncover convict origins; or explore many and varied
    gastronomic delights. Here, raw beauty meets world-class luxury and
    you’re assured to return apple-cheeked from the Apple Isle.

    Tasmania is blessed with World Heritage wilderness satisfying
    more criteria than any other site on earth. The isolation and pure
    environment allows for an abundance of fresh produce, fine wine and
    boutique beers. Here, you can indulge in fresh salmon destined for
    fine restaurants across the globe and crisp bubbly that is even turning
    the heads of Frenchmen.

 The East Coast
 Tasmania’s east coast is a haven for lovers of white-sand
 beaches, fishing and slow-paced seaside life. Blessed with
 mild weather, this lazy stretch of coast invites exploration
 by foot, kayak, boat or swimming, as well as wildlife
 spotting. Highlights include the serene waters of Wineglass
 Bay and the pink granite peaks of Freycinet National Park.
 For outdoor lovers, why not cool down in a natural water
 hole in Douglas-Apsley National Park or head out on a deep
 sea fishing adventure from Bicheno with an experienced
 local? It’s all here waiting on Tasmania’s east coast where
 architecturally designed retreats blend sensitively with
 seaside villages.

 The North West
 One of Tasmania’s gems, the North West is a magnificent
 region famous for its coastal heaths, wetlands and ancient
 rainforests. For fine food lovers, there’s a vibrant cafe
 culture in both the major towns and seaside villages.
