Tasmania is beautiful any time of year with its countryside being the perfect place to relax and unwind. Just a couple of days away from the hustle and bustle of the city and you’ll feel as if you’ve been on holidays for weeks in beautiful Tassie.
Thinking of heading somewhere beautiful for the Easter break? All you need to do is grab a great Hobart campervan rental deal to enjoy a cheap weekend at one of these destinations in Tasmania.
Located within a beautiful valley, Rosebery is a zinc and gold mining town. It’s surrounded by dense forest and volcanic mountains known as the West Coast Range. If you like walking then there’s a scenic loop that offers superb views of the town. Rosebery also isn’t far from Montezuma Falls, which is one of Tasmania’s highest falls. To get there you just need to take a short walk along an old mining tram line or you can even get there along a 4WD track.
Are you searching for your own beachfront paradise? You’ll find it at Snug Beach. It’s only a 30 minute drive from Hobart. Relax by the beach as you ready a book or have a picnic with the family. It’s a great location to swim, fish or go boating. You’ll also find a beach tennis court and a children’s playground not too far away. Venture a little further into the Huon Valley and you’ll be kept busy with plenty of scenery and popular attractions.
Beautifully preserved colonial buildings and cafes line the town of Stanley. A history tour will help you learn all about Stanley’s past. Another popular activity is climbing the path to the top of the Nut, which is a flat topped hill rising about 150 metres from the water’s edge. You’ll enjoy 360 degree views of the town. If you’re feeling tired then you can just take the chairlift to the top. However, it’s a good idea to base yourself in Stanley if you want to discover some of the best wilderness experiences that Tassie has to offer.
Tasmania’s second largest city is still a fantastic place to enjoy a relaxing weekend away. It offers a fantastic mix of city and country charm with its elegant Victorian and Colonial buildings. Launceston is also known for its surrounding natural beauty. The stunning Cataract Gorge is only a short distance from the centre. While if you follow the Tamar River north then you’ll encounter the state’s finest wine-growing region. You could easily stop by many wineries along the way!
This part of the world is unforgettable. Long after you leave the lovely seaside village you’ll be thinking about when you can return. Coles Bay sits between the bottom of stunning granite mountains and crystal clear waters of Oyster Bay. The best part about Coles Bay is that the beaches aren’t crowded. Enjoy swimming, fishing, boating, etc. while feeling as if you have this little slice of heaven all to yourself. From here you can also explore the stunning Wineglass Bay, which is consistently rated among the top beaches in the world.
