ATTRACTIONS: (a few major)
Although isolated from the mainland of Australia, Tasmania is a very popular destination for visitors from around the world.
The unique lifestyle and beautiful landscapes and a relatively small population add to its charm.
Tasmania is well-known for its food and wine, with over 240 vineyards; its UNESCO World Heritage convict sites; walking and hiking trails; MONA - the museum of Old and New Art which contains amazing collections; the national parks and the wilderness to name just a few of the many things to see and do.

- Times to Travel: Tasmania has a cool temperate climate with four distinct seasons. Summer (December - February) days are warm, and the nights are cool and balmy. Festivals, fairs and other outdoor events take place during the summer months. The fall season (March - May) offers crisp and sunny days and is the best time to enjoy fresh produce. During the winter months (June - August), the weather is the wettest and coolest, as a result of cold fronts from the Southern Ocean. The spring season is nice, but the weather is unpredictable. Most travelers prefer the period from November to March when there is a lot to enjoy in the outdoors.
