  • Title: What To Do In Tasmania
    Descriptive info: What To Do In Tasmania (TAS), Australia.. Top 10 experiences in Tasmania.. The.. Lonely Planet Guide.. recently commented on Tasmania's 'regional beauty', 'uniqueness' and 'spectacular stretches' of coastline (Tasmania has a coastline longer than that of the State of New South Wales).. Here are ten Tasmanian attractions which are easily accessible and fascinating to visit while you are in Tasmania.. Sure, you step back in time a little when you cross Bass Strait, but as you adjust to the pace of life, you begin to appreciate the fine foods and wines, put the crowds behind you and experience our hospitality, maybe you'll become as enchanted as we are after a lifetime of living in Tasmania.. KM.. MONA - The Museum of Old New Art.. The publicity surrounding the opening of David Walsh's pet project, MONA in January 2011 extended around the world and the unique characteristics of the location, buildings and exhibits has continued to please tens of thousands of visitors every month making it the most visited single attraction in Tasmania.. MONA has encouraged people to visit Hobart, who would ordinarily never have contemplated it.. Fortunately the exotic island we live on has just enough other businesses which meet the expectations of the art loving MONA crowds.. Restaurants and other service providers have risen the chanllenge to provide a new and higher standard than ever before.. We hope you'll find that MONA is more than enough reason to check out Hobart.. See more detail about.. MONA.. Visit the Port Arthur Historic Site.. The decayed penal facility at.. Port Arthur.. lives through the stories of convict hardship told by the guides who escort reverential groups through the ruins and across the extensive lawns.. It is a shrine of remembrance for Australians right up there with Gallipoli, and closer to home.. The Great Shame of our ancestors having been transported by the motherland has been replaced by national pride that we have survived, and survived well well enough to thrash them at cricket, and just about anything else you might care to mention.. Visit the.. Port Arthur Historic Site.. website.. 3.. Walk in Cradle Mountain National Park.. The two-hour amble around.. Dove Lake.. will be sufficient, for the passer-by, to appreciate the rugged beauty of.. Cradle Mountain.. and the National Park.. Venture a little further afield and you will experience what, apart from earliest European settlement history, makes Tasmania so unique and appealing.. Yes, there are little-walked beaches on the east coast and rivers tumbling down to the west coast, but in its heart Tasmania has a wilderness, barely touched, soothing to the soul, and designated as a World Heritage Area.. There is no higher accolade.. And the iconic peaks of.. are the diadem in this crown.. pages on the Parks and Wildlife Service Tasmania website.. 4.. Visit the Freycinet Peninsula and Wineglass Bay.. Freycinet Peninsula.. is a hook of land, ridged by granite mountains, about midway up the east coast of Tasmania.. It makes a sheltered playground for swimming and kayaking in the bay on the landward side, while on the exposed seaward side is the much-photographed crescent of.. Wineglass Bay.. , best viewed after a short sharp climb to the lookout.. It s a prime summer-holiday destination for the natives, and attracts many out-of-state visitors too, so expect to share the walks and beaches with others.. 5.. Take a  ...   a 360-degree panorama that takes in the city, the.. Derwent River.. , Tasman Peninsula and distant hazy peaks.. It s a real bird s-eye view, perhaps a bit disengaged, but ideal for getting geographically oriented.. If the day is not too chilly you will remember the sights with fondness.. 8.. Visit Cataract Gorge in Launceston.. You would want to reach.. Cataract Gorge Reserve.. by walking from the city centre of.. , firstly because it is an easy, level twenty-minute stroll and, more importantly, because it cements in your mind how attached this natural stealaway is to the urban sprawl.. Follow the.. Tamar River.. bank to Kings Bridge, where the.. South Esk River.. meets, and wander along the well-trodden pathway under the cliffs to.. First Basin.. , the ferntree glades and gardens, the picnic areas and swimming pool, the cafe and an overhead chairlift ride.. There is also wildlife in abundance.. Cataract Gorge.. 9.. Stroll around Sullivans Cove and Salamanca Markets.. This is a mecca for tourists and locals alike.. The working docks at.. Sullivans Cove.. , where ships come and go to Antarctica, and fishing boats, millionaire yachts and tall-masted wooden vessels provide colour and movement, are the foreground for sandstone-fronted colonial warehouses that have been transformed into art and craft centres, coffee shops and eateries.. Saturday morning is the ideal time to visit.. Then the.. Salamanca Markets.. are in full swing and you can make your contribution to the Tasmanian economy.. Visit.. Salamanca Market.. 10.. Fly to Melaleuca in the South West Wilderness.. Southwest National Park.. is not accessible by road.. It is the largest protected reserve in Tasmania, covering 20 percent of the island, and it has been designated a World Heritage Area.. Take a charter flight from Hobart Airport, round the wave-lashed cliffs of.. South Cape.. and land at.. Melaleuca.. You get sweeping views of.. Bathurst Harbour.. and.. Port Davey.. before bouncing to a halt on a dirt runway.. Believe it or not there are a couple of people living in tin shacks and ekeing out an existence at.. They have for company the Orange Bellied Parrots and the hardy through-walkers hiking this remote wilderness.. The weather is as bleak as the surroundings but, whatever they are escaping, and there is plenty in the world to wish behind you, they surely find satisfaction in the silence, the water, the button-grass plains and the jagged mountains.. And you will too, even if for but a few hours.. 11.. Tour through the Central Highlands.. In the heart of the.. Central Highlands.. of Tasmania is.. Great Lake.. , the largest natural freshwater lake in Australia, sadly, after many long years of drought, at a fraction of its capacity but still, nevertheless, impressive.. This is trout fishing country.. It is also where Hydro Tasmania has many of its storage dams and infrastructure for generating hydro-electric power.. Farmlands here are marginal at best but the rocky plateau, dotted with sheep, reminds one immediately of the Scottish Highlands, doubtless a factor that attracted migrants from that part of the world.. They brought the game of golf with them and gave their towns names like.. Ross.. Campbelltown.. After the forests, the lush green meadows of the north coast, the sandy beaches and the mountain peaks, I would be surprised if you did not find that the.. add something rich to the diversified flavour of Tasmania..
