1. East Coast

The East Coast, home to azure blue seas with long white (and uncrowded) beaches, offers a stark contrast to the rest of Tasmania. Best known for Wineglass Bay and the Bay of Fires, the area is perfect for walking, kayaking, diving, sea cruises and relaxing, and growing flavoursome riesling, chardonnay and pinot grapes.

French-born Bertrand Cadart is mayor of Glamorgan Spring Bay Council and a man with a passion for seafood to rival that for his motorbikes. He reveals his favourite eateries and a 'magical' waterhole. Read More

Hobart, Tasmania's capital, is Australia's most distinctive city, combining heritage charm and cultural diversity in a setting of exceptional beauty. The city's dominating features are the River Derwent and Mount Wellington, and its cultural hub is centred on the working port and Salamanca precinct. Hobart is known for its easy access to Port Arthur, Richmond and Bruny Island.

3. Launceston, Tamar and the North

Launceston is Tasmania's northern gateway and the state's second largest city.

The beautiful Cataract Gorge is in the centre of town (just 15 minutes walk from the CBD), but that is no secret.

The region has two coastal national parks and Australia's largest tract of temperate rainforest, the Tarkine.
