Tasmania’s landscape is internationally renowned.
An archipelago of almost 370 islands and with more reserved area than just about any other place on the planet, Tasmania’s lifestyle is inextricably linked to its waterways and natural environment.
You would be hard pressed in Tasmania to book a room without a view and conference venues with absolute waterfrontage are common.
Nearly 50 per cent of Tasmania’s land mass has been set aside in formal reserves and world heritage areas, but although much of Tasmania’s wilderness is rugged and remote, with the assistance of quality local operators, it is still accessible to all.
Even hosting a dinner in a remote location is simple. With mobile kitchens and a ‘can do’ attitude, plating a dinner for 1000 on a deserted beach or a mountain top is just another day at the office for some of Tasmania’s chefs.
You might think you know what Tasmania’s wilderness looks like: thick, wet eucalypt forests with tannin-coloured rivers, home to unique wildlife and the tallest flowering plants in the world, but if you haven’t been to Tasmania, you may find the diversity of its wilderness surprising.
Turquoise blue water flanked by a pristine white beach – a carpet of sand broken only by huge boulders covered in red lichen.
Dolomite cliffs rearing out of a dark ocean and stretching towards the sky – fat seals lolling about the rocks beneath, seemingly unaware of the roar of the waves crashing against the walls around them before diving playfully into the mystical and beautiful kelp forests below.
The contrasts are breathtaking.
