1. Some of the Best Wineries

Tasmania is famous all over the world for its brilliant wineries. A lot of the wineries in the region are more than a hundred years old and have a rich history along with fantastic wine. Some of the must-visit wineries in Tasmania include the Puddleduck Vineyard and Frogmore Creek.

Established in 1997, the Puddleduck Vineyard is named so because it houses a huge dam that acts like a duck pond. Not to mention the gift shop that sells quite a lot of different duck items. It produces premium Tasmanian wine.

Just 20 minutes away from Hobart lies the scenic Frogmore Creek. Along with premium wine, visitors get to enjoy a fantastic natural view of the waterways and rolling hills. The rustic charm of the winery adds to the beauty of the place.

2. Port Arthur

This beautiful site is located in the south-eastern part of Tasmania. It is one of the most popular tourist attractions of the region and attracts about 250,000 visitors every year. It was built in the 18th and 19th centuries by the British Empire as a convict site. The site spans over forty acres of land and consists of about 30 buildings.

One of the major attractions here is the boat ride to the Isle of the Dead or to the Point Puer Boys Cemetery. While the first one offers a guided tour of the Port Arthur Cemetery, the second one is a reformatory that was built for juvenile boys. It is the first reformatory built by the Empire.

3. Woodford Folk Festival

The Woodford Folk Festival is one of the best cultural events in the entire region. Each year, the 500-acre parkland of Woodfordia is turned into a village to host 20000 people for six days and six nights. The place lies to the north of Brisbane on the Sunshine Coast Hinterland.

About 2000 national and international performers entertain the crowd at the festival. Programs range from music and dance to comedy and poetry. Every year, about 1500 such shows are conducted through the course of the festival. For anyone who loves to take a break from the world and experience the culture of places from across the world, the Woodford Folk Festival is the place to be!

4. Bruny Island Cruises.

Bruny Island Cruises explore the rugged and beautiful coastline of the Bruny Island which is located in the southern part of Tasmania. The cruise, which is about 3-hours long, allows the passengers to take a look at a few of the highest cliffs in all of Australia and enter into deep-sea caves.

Visitors are also able to take a look at the iconic ‘The Monument’ one of the many carved sea stacks that come into view during the tour. Tourists also get a chance to get up close and personal with the amazing coastal wildlife of the region by getting a look at seals, whales, sea birds, and dolphins. Despite all of this, some visitors are worried about the environmental effect of these cruises.

However, you need not be. The company uses the EarthCheck system to ensure that its environmental footprint is to a minimum level. All precautions are taken to prevent any damage to the wilderness of the region.

5. Toowoomba Carnival of Flowers.

Do you love to watch nature at its peak beauty during the spring season? The Toowoomba Carnival of Flowers is the perfect place for you. Over a course of ten days, the carnival is a celebration of the spring season. One of the main attractions of this festival is the Grand Central Floral Parade.

Besides that, there are a number of other attractions like the Food and Wine Festival, the Ergon Energy Flower, and numerous other events. The carnival has been taking place every year since 1950 and is the longest-running carnival of its kind in all of Australia.

These were some of the places that you must visit during your trip to Tasmania. Make sure that you plan your trip in a way that it covers as many of these destinations as you can.
