Tasmania’s wild and diverse landscape offers exciting opportunities for travellers looking for a little adventure on their holiday. There are activities to suit all levels of fitness, so from families to thrill-seekers, everyone can enjoy the wild side of Tasmania.
From the air
You can choose a seaplane or helicopter ride over the beautiful and untouched World Heritage forests in the west, south and east. Rides range from a short 30 minute flight to full day tours. To get that rush without lifting too far off the ground, why not try flying through the treetops at Hollybank, try some hand gliding, or walk through the treetops at Tahune Forest AirWalk.
On the water
From the coastline you can enjoy surfing some of the biggest breaks in the world, or go snorkling or diving to visit stunning kelp forests and mysterious shipwrecks. Off shore you can also enjoy sailing or saltwater fishing along the beautiful shores. The pristine fresh waterways make Tasmania one of the world’s greatest fisheries with easily accessible fresh fishing experiences found across the state.
Inland, you can also find exhilarating jet boat rides, kayaking or rafting adventures, or for the more gentle experience, cruises that explore the picturesque landscape in comfort.
On the land
For the walkers, Tasmania ‘s short and long tracks are a dream, with many levels of track offering splendid scenery to view as you trek around. The most famous of Tasmania’s tracks are the Overland Track, Wineglass Bay and the South Coast Track. Many tracks are also available for mountain biking and driving, allowing everyone the experience of getting off the beaten track to visit the unique and untouched wilderness.
Whether you go underground to explore mysterious caves, or up high to abseil or rock climb the spectacular cliffs, Tasmania has plenty for the adventurous to experience.
If golfing is more your style, try one of Tasmania’s great golf courses, two of which are in the top 100 golf courses in the world, as well as the oldest golf course in the country at Bothwell.
