So, a couple of days ago, on the 15th of January to be exact, my family and I went to Tasmania for five days, just as a little break from everything. And honestly, it was quite stunning. In the short time period of five days, I personally feel as if I saw most of Tasmania, ranging from Hobart to Launceston and other little towns off the east coast. I visited many beaches, historically significant places and major icons the island state had to offer. One major thing I noticed was that even though Tasmania is part of Australia, it’s kind of an isolated island in itself and the lifestyle of people was highly different to that of people living in Victoria, New South Wales and Queensland, where people aren’t as carefree and idle. I assumed it was probably due to the lack of urban areas and people in general but it was a nice change from the busy lifestyle of Sydney.
In the space of five days, I managed to visit the Cadbury Chocolate Factory, Mount Wellington, Wineglass Bay, Coles Bay, Salamanca Markets, Richmond Bridge, Port Arthur, Cataract Gorge, Sleepy Bay, Wicked Cheese Factory and Salamanca. Each of the places were unique in their own way but I thoroughly enjoyed visiting each and every one of them. Below, you can find a selection of images of the tourist attractions I visited in Tasmania. Enjoy!
