Hobart Area Hotels and Accommodation in Tasmania.
Hobart stretches many Kms along the Derwent Estuary, from the D'Entrecasteaux Channel at the entrance to the Derwent River near Bruny Island, all the way to Granton, some 16 Kms north of the city proper. Hotels and accommodation in Hobart, Tasmania, are extremely varied, though if you want to stay near most of the restaurants and the Historic Battery Point Precinct, then any accommodation on the Wharf or Salamanca Place section is a great location.
Derwent Valley Hotels and Accommodation in Tasmania.
At Granton and Bridgewater, you will have the option of traveling north to Launceston on the Heritage Highway, or will be able to continue towards the West Coast and Strahan by staying on the Lyell Highway and traveling through the Derwent Valley. This extremely attractive part of Tasmania offers a look at rural Tasmania at its best.
Port Arthur and Tasman Peninsula Hotels and Accommodation in Tasmania.
If you want to come to grips with Australia's convict origins at their most interesting and well presented, Port Arthur is the best place to visit. The whole Tasman Peninsula area is one of sweeping ocean vistas and thickly wooded hillsides. Clifftops, wildlife, history and rugged scenery - the Tasman Peninsula is worth more than a day visit. Stay at any of the wonderful accommodations in the area, from the Port Arthur township itself to the local communities at Eaglehawk Neck or White Beach.
Launceston and Tamar Valley Hotels and Accommodation in Tasmania.
Launceston is Tasmania's largest northern city, and the second largest in the State. It lies where the North and South Esk Rivers combine to become the tidal Tamar Estuary. Now famous for lavender growing, fruit farming and as the birthplace of Tasmania's excellent wine industry, it is well worth spending the time to enjoy by staying several nights in either Launceston or any of the historic villages surrounding it.
Freycinet, Swansea and Bicheno Hotels and Accommodation in Tasmania.
The pink granite of The Hazards dominate the Freycinet National Park, midway up the East Coast of Tasmania. Excellent day and half day walks on very well maintained tracks make Freycinet National Park a popular destination for either scenery or hiking. Water activities are also excellent at Freycinet - try Sea Kayaking with Freycinet Adventures or just enjoy the many miles of secluded beaches. Any of either Coles Bay, Freycinet, Bicheno or Swansea are good places to give you access to the Freycinet National Park.
Cradle Mountain Hotels and Accommodation in Tasmania.
Cradle Mountain is one of the icons of the Tasmanian Wilderness. Situated at the northern end of the Cradle Mountain - Lake St Clair National Park, it gives you the opportunity to sample the wilderness without straying too far from civilization. It is also the start of the Overland Track from Cradle Mountain to Lake St Clair, but you need to be aware that it is a five day walk from end to end. Any hotel or accommodation at Cradle Mountain Village, Deloraine or Sheffield is in a good location to discover Cradle Mountain and the Cradle Mountain Lake St Clair National Park.
Strahan and the West Coast Hotels and Accommodation in Tasmania.
As you drive over the mountains and down to the wild West Coast of Tasmania, it is hard to not be impressed by the sheer isolation of the place. Developed first as a timber cutting town, Strahan was also the depository for some of the worst of the Convicts on the infamous Sarah Island at the mouth of Macquarie Harbour. The silver, lead and zinc deposits of nearby Queenstown started a mining boom that maintained the Strahan township as its shipping outlet, and riding the ABT Wilderness Railway from Strahan to Queenstown via the steep valleys and gorges of the area is a real experience in history and engineering. The Gordon River Cruise, leaving from the wharf at Strahan daily is also one of the best wilderness cruises on the planet. Don't miss it.
Stanley, Devonport and Burnie Northwest Coast Hotels and Accommodation in Tasmania.
The expanse of Bass Strait, the stretch of water separating Tasmania from the Australian Mainland, can be one of the most treacherous in the world. As recently as the 1980's yachts and their crews have disappeared without trace in bad weather, even in Summer. On the coast in the far Northwest of Tasmania, lies Stanley, an old sealing and whaling township tucked under the protective walls of "The Nut", an unusual volcanic plug that dominates the area. This is a wild, windy and rainy part of Tasmania, but one that is fascinating to visit. It is very easy to appreciate the isolation that must have been felt in the days when migrants from Europe found themselves in the teeth of the Roaring 40's on the exposed Northwest Coast of Tasmania.
Scamander, St Helens and Bridport East and North East Coast Hotels and Accommodation in Tasmania.
The northern part of the East Coast of Tasmania is one of relatively balmy climate, being in the rainshadow of the Central Highlands. The West Coast of Tasmania gets the rain and wind, the East Coast gets the sun. The beaches are clean and deserted, the seafood is fresh and wonderful, the scenery dramatic and interesting. The North of the East Coast of Tasmania is a great family destination, with lots of things for kids to do, rock pools to discover, and safe swimming areas in Summer.
Bruny Island, D'Entrecasteaux Channel and Huon Valley Hotels and Accommodation in Tasmania.
To the south of Hobart lies the Huon Valley. This fertile valley was the place that gave Tasmania the nickname the "Apple Isle" - for nearly a century it was the source of apples and pears for Great Britain. When the UK joined the Common Market in the 1060's, the industry rapidly declined, though it is making a comeback at the quality end of the market nowadays. The wilderness areas around Geeveston just past Huonville in the Huon Valley are particularly well presented for day walks and hiking. The mouth of the Huon River swings north at the D'Entrecasteaux Channel and Bruny Island protects the Channel from the wild waters of the Tasman Sea. Bruny Island can be reached by vehicle ferry and is well worth staying on or a few days if you have time in your Tasmanian Holiday schedule.
