Australia has long been a land of wondrous natural adventures on a vast scale, and cruises to Tasmania will showcase the best of what this amazing country has to offer. From the sweeping landscapes and intriguing wildlife to the vibrant culture and cuisine, an Australia cruise that stops in Tasmania is truly a rewarding and luxurious experience. This island is home to many of Australia's most treasured flora and fauna, old British settlements, and revered Aboriginal cultural sites.
See historic Hobart during an overnight stay in this charming city. Stroll the quaint streets, explore Salamanca Place with its markets and galleries, or take a cable car ride to the top of Mount Wellington for panoramic views. Journey to Port Arthur, an evocative site steeped in local lore from its early days as a penal colony. Explore the Freycinet Peninsula where you can take in the dramatic views of Hazards Beach, hike through national parks, or look out for native wildlife like wallabies and Tasmanian devils.
Tasmania is home to some of Australia’s finest wineries, and in recent years has made a name for itself as a premier wine-producing region. Visit one of Tasmania's many vineyards for a tour and wine tasting, or enjoy a delicious meal paired with local Riesling, Pinot Noir, and other famous local varietals. You'll find that the wines of Tasmania are a perfect complement to the island's cuisine, from organic meat and fresh seafood to locally produced cheeses and honey.
Tasmania is well known for its abundant wildlife, including the elusive Tasmanian devil. Take a nature walk or safari through one of Tasmania's many national parks and spot kangaroos, wallabies, echidnas, and other local fauna. Trek to the beautiful Myrtle Gully Falls near Hobart, or explore St. Clair National Park for sweeping views of this pristine wilderness area. Venture to one of Tasmania's smaller offshore islands to look for penguins, seals, and dolphins in their natural habitat.
Tasmania is home to some of Australia's most important Aboriginal heritage sites with a deep connection to the past that blends with the island's modern culture today. See rock art dating back 20,000 years at the Tasmanian Aboriginal Centre, or explore the shell middens and stone huts at the Port Arthur Historic Site. For a truly educational experience, take part in an Aboriginal cultural tour and learn about the unique language and traditions of the island's original inhabitants.
Cruises to Tasmania sail round-trip from Sydney and last for five, six and nine nights. These cruises will bring you to ports on the Australian mainland such as Melbourne, Adelaide, and Kangaroo Island, as well as the Tasmanian ports of Hobart (for an overnight stay) and Port Arthur, depending on your cruise. Tasmanian cruises run from February through April.
