I’ve recently started following a blogger who hikes in Tasmania, and it reminded me how stunning and special this little part of Australia is.
If you love nature, then I dare you to visit Tasmania and not fall completely in love with the place. We went there for a second time a few months back and spent time south of Hobart in the Huon Valley.
Approximately 1/5 of the island is a World Heritage listed area.
We kayaked, fished from the rocks and from a tinny, walked above the treetops and out over the Huon River and walked through bushland to discover our own little secret coves with no one else around.
Part of Tasmania’s magic is that there are little patches of paradise not far from the capital city and major towns where you will have the place completely to yourself. You’re surrounded by natural beauty everywhere.
I can’t wait to return with my backpack and hiking boots next time, ready to hit the trails.
