Things to do





What takes your fancy?

The adventure starts the moment you decide to visit, and all you’ve got to do is pick your pace. You’re best to take your time here, the pace moves a little slower but isn’t that why you’re here?

Eating and drinking your way along the Tasting Trail will take some time, with over 50 producers from Launceston to Smithton. It’s a no judgement zone if you want second lunches, in fact it’s encouraged, but your eyes may be bigger than your stomach and you’ll need a few extra days. We know, sounds tough.

If you’re an art or history buff, we’ve got it in spades. They don’t call Burnie the ‘City of Makers‘ for nothing, and Sheffield is quite literally a canvas. You’ll find the remnants of times passed, old railway lines along the river Don and historic sites perched on the hill in Stanley. After something a bit more fast paced and jam packed? We’ve got you. Hiking, caving, and mountain bike riding are all on the cards, and our roaring forty winds can be quite useful for kite surfing.

Finding gems off the beaten track, the side trips and detours are where all the fun is. The hidden staircase for lovers, accessed only by boat or kayak in Corinna. The walkway to the Edge of the World, where the wind may just blow you straight off. The volcanic plug standing watch over a seaside town just as you turn right off the highway. We’re not hiding them, they’re just waiting for you to explore.
