30 Argyle St, Hobart TAS 7000, Australia

One of Australia’s most acclaimed restaurants happens to be in Hobart, where chef Analiese Gregory plays with local, foraged, and homegrown ingredients in her daily-changing menu. One night, you might find burrata curd tossed with saltbush...

Situated on a farm a 50-minute drive northwest of Hobart, Two Metre Tall’s brewery is worth the detour. On Fridays and Sundays, the outdoor bar serves experimental beers and ciders made with local apples, hops, and other ingredients. Don’t miss...

The cold-weather spinoff of the renowned MONA FOMA (MoFo) festival, put on by Hobart’s boundary-pushing Museum of Old and New Art (MONA), is not for the faint of heart: Over the course of a week, there’s eye-opening music and art,...

30/28 Argyle St, Hobart TAS 7000, Australia
At this airy restaurant, built into the former newsroom of a local paper, chef David Moyle treats his pristine ingredients—delicate abalone, opalescent kingfish—with the lightest of hands, cooking most of them in his kitchen’s wood-fire oven.

655 Main Rd, Berriedale TAS 7011, Australia
It’s not an exaggeration to say that this museum, a 30-minute ferry ride from Hobart, put Tasmania on the international art map. Founded by millionaire native son and bad boy David Walsh, it is at once provocative and pleasurable. (Its nickname,...

Coles Bay Rd, Tasmania 7215, Australia
One of the star attractions of the savagely beautiful Freycinet Peninsula is this horseshoe-shaped beach with electric-blue waters. A hike (don’t be fooled by the Australian proclivity to refer to such excursions as “walks”) down to the sand...

Lyell Hwy, Queenstown TAS 7001, Australia
When you travel to Tasmania, there are also opportunities to travel back in time—not just to early days of British settlement, but into a primordial past. One aspect of Tasmania that sets it apart is its climate, cooler and moister than much of...

Taranna TAS 7180, Australia
We kayaked halfway around Australia’s heart-shaped island state in four weeks and almost every night dined off what we caught or pried from the sea. When the tide was low, we would pull over and knife oysters and clams from the coral and bake them...

A hike down to Wine Glass Bay in Tasmania's Freycinet National Park is hardly the afternoon stroll that rangers make it out to be. But the effort is more than compensated by the gorgeous views and the wallabies waiting on the sand. Signs tell you...
