It's is a terrific time to hug Bass Strait (and your travel buddy) while breathing the world’s cleanest air.

Visit the wildly diverse Tarkine, Devonport, Burnie, and Stanley. Try the Chairlifts at The Nut and buzzy local markets full of irresistible food are a few of the tantalising attractions in this pocket of paradise.

Stanley

A town of perfectly preserved colonial buildings, genteel cafes and quality B&B cottages, all sheltering in the imposing shadow of the Nut.

Tarkine Forest Reserve

The area contains a wildly diverse landscape - including Australia's largest patch of temperate rainforest  - and a world of natural treasures including mountain ranges, wild river and cave systems, buttongrass moorlands, and a rugged coastline with long sandy beaches, grassy woodland and coastal heath.

Devonport

Devonport is a busy coastal city and hosts the Spirit of Tasmania ferry on its voyage to and from Melbourne. It's also the gateway to the North West and beyond, with a bounty of fresh produce on its doorstep and plenty to explore right in town.

Christmas Hills Raspberry Farm Cafe

Located just a 45 minute drive along the Bass Highway is Christmas Hills Raspberry Farm Café, at Elizabeth Town. Feel free to take a relaxing walk around the lake and commercial raspberry farm whilst the kids play in the children's play area. After that sit down to a three course meal and glass of Tasmanian wine, or grab a quick cafe meal or homemade raspberry ice-cream.
