Where is it? It’s our southernmost state.

Mainland Australia is so vast, you should take at least a year off to drive all the way round it (see #5 on our list). But if you have a hankering to circumnavigate something by car and don’t have that kind of time on your hands, head to Tassie. The state can be explored in a ten-day loop, with an itinerary that includes Hobart, Bruny Island, the East Coast, Launceston, Cradle Mountain, Strahan. Campervans are available for hire as soon as you jump off the plane from interstate – all you need to do is grab a map. Drive at your own pace, stopping at your leisure in towns or at campsites that pique your interest, or request a holiday planner from Discover Tasmania to be sure you catch the best bits of this beautiful island state.
