This island state sitting at the foot of vast Australia has a charm and mood all of its own – at times familiar to this Briton who took a road trip there recently. We took in main cities Hobart and Launceston, the stunning east coast and the changing character of its north side and interior.
If you’re tempted to go to Tasmania armed with your camera, here are a few reasons to go south…
- Its coastal landscape is second to none, including gold and orange rocks
- If you’re lucky with the weather, the sky is an amazing azure, thanks to a lack of European pollution
- The towns and cities have a beguiling mix of colonial and contemporary architecture – and unique charm
- Its clarity is great for night photography – and a chance to catch the Southern Lights
