Tasmania’s Southeastern Stunners

A deeply indented coast jam packed with islands, bays and peninsulas which offer up dramatic shoreline views and World Heritage wonders, southeast Tasmania is also home to its capital and largest city, Hobart.  Just a short drive away lies the Hartz Mountains National Park, one of many included in the massive Tasmanian Wilderness area inscribed on the World Heritage register.  This Destination also features the dark history and dramatic seascapes respectively of Port Arthur and Tasman National Park, and the double-delight of Bruny Island with its famous gooseneck connecting north with south.

The Hartz Mountains provide a peaceful respite from the hustle and bustle of the capital Hobart, just a little more than an hour’s drive away and offers secluded walking trails that from which lovely views and breathtaking waterfalls can be enjoyed.  Port Arthur is one of eleven former convict sites collectively inscribed as the Australian Convict Sites listing on the World Heritage register.  On the other side of the Tasman peninsula, the dramatic cliffs and rock formations of Tasman National Park create stunning spectacles seen either from land or sea.  It’s an otherworldly scene… sheer cliffs rise straight up out of the Tasman Sea and towering sea stacks reach for the sky.  Further south, Bruny island is reached by a quick ferry ride from Kettering on the Tasmanian mainland.  Bruny is adored for its many long sweeping beaches, especially at Adventure Bay, Cloudy Bay, and The Neck – where a the Truganini Lookout offers a birds eye view of both parts of the Island.
