A national park off the east coast of Tasmania, Maria Island offers an unparalleled combination of wildlife, scenery, and history. The Maria Island Walk is the only outfitter that leads trips across the island and offers tent cabins and gourmet...

Corinna Rd, Corinna TAS 7321, Australia
Blow through Burnie to allow for more time in the woods. When the long stretch of highway turns bright white—it was built from silica rock—you’re almost to Corinna (from $180), a gold rush settlement turned ecolodge on the edge of the tarkine...

At Spreyton Cider Co., pick up the dry vintage cider and ample supplies of beef jerky, local cheese, and “bikkies” (crackers). Then settle under the apple and cherry trees for a picnic. This appeared in the November/December 2014 issue.

Stanley TAS 7331, Australia
The main attraction in Stanley is a large rock formation nicknamed 'The Nut' after settlers tried to blast away the odd formation, however, after setting off 5000 pounds of dynamite nothing happened - it was said "that is one tough nut to crack"...

Taranna TAS 7180, Australia

Save Place
For tourists fortunate enough to make it to this part of Eastern Tasmania, they’ll notice that what makes Wineglass Bay in Freycinet National Park so spectacular is not the beach itself, but the view of it from high atop Mt. Amos. Whether you...
Save Place
Port Arthur TAS 7182, Australia
What most of us know about Australia is that it was a land settled by convicts. “Sons of convicts” and “bad stock” was how the world saw them. In the eighteen hundreds their convict past made Australians morally suspect to the rest of the world....
Save Place
41 Esplanade, Strahan TAS 7468, Australia
Tucked in deep on the Tasmanian west coast is my favourite Australian village. Strahan is the only village on a harbour six times bigger than Sydney’s. The friendliness of its people tips the scales at ‘uber-good-natured’. The beauty of Macquarie...
Save Place
Coles Bay Rd, Coles Bay TAS 7215, Australia
Lady Eugenie, heeling precariously, smashes through gigantic waves at 33-knots. It’s a four-hour sail from Great Oyster Bay to the safety of Triabunna as we out-run a cold front bearing down on Tasmania’s east coast. The full moon illuminates...
