What are the best things to do in Tasmania?

Cradle Mountain-Lake St. Clair National Park

When it comes to incredible outdoor holiday destinations, it doesn't get much better than Tasmania. Cradle Mountain-Lake St. Clair National Park is Tasmania's crown jewel of national parks and is a go-to destination for lovers of the great outdoors. Here, adventurous travellers in the Apple Isle can discover glacier-carved crags, beech forests and Mount Ossa, the highest point on the island.

The best thing to do in the park is to go hiking. There are day walks, such as Lake Dove Walk and the Weindorfer Walk, that are perfect for people flying to Tasmania for a weekend getaway and don't have a lot of time on the island.

If you're staying in Tasmania longer than a weekend and you're an avid hiker, consider adding the famous Overland Track to your holiday plans. This route is 80 kilometres and runs from Cradle Valley to the deepest lake in Australia, Lake St. Clair.

Mount Wellington

Many Tasmania flights will land at Hobart International Airport (HBA) and one of the best things to do after landing in Tassie's capital city is to summit the 1,270 metre-high Mount Wellington. When you book your flights with Webjet, add a car hire option. By having your own set of wheels, you can drive up the 21-kilometre mountain road that leads to the summit. At the top, you'll have stunning views overlooking Hobart, the D'Entrecasteaux Channel and Derwent Valley.

Other activities that adventurous travellers can enjoy on Mount Wellington include rock climbing the Organ Pipes (a distinct dolerite cliff), mountain biking and hiking through the forests.
The Three Capes Track
The scenic Three Capes Track is a 48-kilometre hike through the Tasman National Park. The trailhead starts at the UNESCO World Heritage Site of Port Arthur and winds past sheer coastal cliffs.

As you walk through the park, you'll catch glimpses of wombats and wallabies and get to stay overnight in eco-friendly cabins. Completing the hike will take four days and three nights, however, it's an easy walk for hikers of all fitness levels.

The temperatures hover between 21℃ during the day and 12℃ at night, making the weather ideal for the island's famous multi-day hikes. There are also plenty of summer festivals to attend. You can plan your airfares to Tasmania around the Falls Festival (the island's largest New Year's Eve concert) or Taste of Tasmania (a must-visit for travelling foodies).

What should I pack for Tasmania?
If you're buying Tasmania flights for travel over spring, it's worth packing a raincoat and warm layers. It may be a bit too brisk to go swimming, but the average temperatures during the day are on the increase, especially around October.

For the bargain hunters that bought cheap Tasmania flights to arrive in winter, you need to prepare yourself for the chill. Pack some thermals, a warm coat and anything that will help you stay warm while you're out exploring.

In autumn, travellers need to pack for colder weather. If you're going to the alpine areas, it will help to have waterproof layers and thermals in case the temperatures drop to below 0℃.

For those visiting in summer, you’ll need to prepare for all kinds of weather. Even on the hottest days, you might find yourself on top of a mountain with snow. Sunscreen will also be your best friend. Pack a bottle of SPF 30+ to avoid getting a sunburn.
