Tasman Peninsula Travel Guide

For those who love the idea of combining a wilderness vacation with heritage tours, great food and terrific weather, the Tasman Peninsula is the penultimate destination. The Tasman Peninsula curls like a comma on the southeastern coast of Tasmania. It could very well be an island apart but that it is connected to Hobart (97km) by way of the narrow Eaglehawk Neck along the Arthur Highway to Port Arthur. The region is fast dumping the excess baggage it has been carrying around as the worst place in Australia to spend a term of penal servitude with nowhere to escape to except the hostile wilderness around.

The fact is, that Tasmanian Peninsula is not just Tasmania's but also one of Australia's most scenic regions - replete with panoramic vistas of wild natural beauty, spectacular rock formations, bays, coves and inlets, caves and walking tracks. Its fabulous high cliffs, rugged topography, perfect beaches, heritage buildings and the best bushwalks anywhere have made it the top tourist attraction in Tasmania.

The Tasmanian Devil is an endangered species of a living marsupial carnivores. Despite its robust physique that resembles a dog and its bloodcurdling screams and fierce growls, the animal is actually quite shy and docile and an antithesis to it name or demeanor!
