Our Top Tassie Tracks and Hikes
Venture out into untamed landscapes to experience some spectacular scenery and wildlife.
1. The Overland Track – Lake St Clair
65km – 6 days – Medium Intensity
One of Australia’s most famous hiking trails, the Overland Track is a must-do for any avid hikers. The track is completed over 6 days, varying from 12kms to 7kms per day with most hikers taking around 6 days to complete the trek. Wilderness lovers will especially enjoy the waterfalls, valleys, lakes, mountains and diverse ecosystems of the region.
2. Wukalina Walk – Bay of Fires
33km – 4 days – Medium Intensity
The Wukalina Walk is a 4-day/3-night Palawa-owned and operated experience in North East Lutruwita/Tasmania.
The experience allows for the sharing of knowledge and perspectives as you are led through beautiful bushland and along the coastline of Wukalina (Mt William National Park) and Larapuna (Bay of Fires). Throughout the journey, you learn about the ongoing connection the Palawa community has to Country.
3. Wineglass Bay Lookout – Wineglass Bay
2.6km Return – 1-1.5 Hours – Low Intensity
Walk to one of the most celebrated views in the state.
A well-known Tassie attraction, Wineglass Bay offers white sandy beaches, bright blue water and beautiful bushland. The lookout trail is one and a half hours return, recommended for fairly experienced bushwalkers due to a steep uphill climb over 1.3km.
4. Kunanyi / Mount Wellington
Multiple Walks Available
No matter where you are in Hobart, you are never far from the adored kunanyi/ Mount Wellington.
Towering 1271 metres above the city, kunanyi/ Mount Wellington is the perfect place to go walking, mountain biking or play in the winter snow during the cooler months. The summit has spectacular views over Hobart and much of Southern Tasmania, or traverse the Organ Pipes walk to view some of Tasmania’s finest terrain.
Walk on kunanyi operates private and small group guided walks to reconnect you with nature. Plan your trip to kunanyi here.
A Compact and Functional Tassie Retreat on Flinders Island
The Flinders Island Retreat is inspired by the simplicity of Nordic architecture, with functional design, clean lines and sustainable materials.
A clever floorplan enhances the compact space, with 1 bedroom, 1 bathroom, kitchen/dining space and a living area with cosy built-in seating.
Comprising a single module with a joinery wall, the home is clad externally in Japanese charred timber, blending seamlessly into the natural surroundings.
A Blackwood timber-lined ceiling sourced from Tasmania’s North West adds a striking focal point, with the deep chocolate brown tones adding warmth and interest.
Time for a City Experience
If hiking isn’t your forte, why not head to the city for a different kind of adventure? Some of our top city sites include:
A Tasmanian icon, the Museum of Old and New Art houses ancient, contemporary and modern art pieces, features and installations.
Along with its frequently updated art collection, Mona also hosts the annual Mona Foma and Dark Mofo music and arts festivals which showcase live performances. The best way to visit the gallery is to jump on the camouflaged ferries that depart from the Hobart waterfront.

2. Cascade Brewery
Fancy a drink during your stay in Tassie? The Cascade Brewery is Australia’s oldest continually operating brewery being established in 1824.
Cascade uses Tasmanian barley and hops combined with fresh mountain water to create a beer that has been enjoyed for over a century. The Brewery offers a range of beers and ciders, food, tours and beautiful surrounding gardens.
Whether it’s rain, hail or shine, the farmers, brewers, bakers and more of northern Tasmania come to town every Saturday morning for the Harvest Launceston Community Farmers Market. Harvest (as it’s recognised locally) is a community gathering place, contributing to Launceston’s recognition in 2021 as a UNESCO City of Gastronomy.
An essential part of community life, the market is the perfect place to meet locals and sample Tassie’s best and freshest produce.
Harvest Market is held every Saturday, 8.30 am-12.30 pm, at 71 Cimitiere St, Launceston.
A Home that Harmonises with the Tassie Terrain
A prefab modular home in a pristine part of Tasmania. Surrounded by lush bushland, the Huon Valley House is a sustainable haven for a busy young family.
The clients sought an energy-efficient home, with considered spaces for a comfortable work-from-home lifestyle. Responding sympathetically to the steep site, the built form runs parallel to the contours, nesting down into the hill. The dwelling cranks at 20 degrees to follow the landscape, opening out towards the north with views across the conservation area.
A highly energy-efficient design, the home is equipped with 140 mm thick stud walls to hold high insulation levels, a heat recovery system in the laundry for significantly improved air quality and has specified air tightness at Passivhaus standard (0.6ach @50Pa).
Unilux Isostar Aluminium clad UPVc frames with triple glazing have been selected for their high thermal efficiency, whilst a fireplace with heat transfer ensures efficient use of any heat generated.
