The island state of Tasmania is a place of wild beauty. There are dense rainforests, dramatic mountain peaks, alpine lakes and meadows, wild rivers, rugged coastline, and scenic farmland.
Historic convict-built buildings are common in Tasmania, while the wildlife is often easier to spot than elsewhere particularly in the evening, when the marsupials come out to play.
Tasmanians are gay welcoming, with many gay owned businesses. The state has a reputation for producing some of Australia’s finest food – from abalone to apples, from truffles to wines – and this is just one of many reasons to discover this edge of the planet.
