Travellers taking cheap flights to Tasmania are spoiled for choice when it comes to destinations and activities. This small island is remarkably diverse and wonderfully wild.

Hobart, the capital, has the heritage as well as the stunning setting and, within a 90-minute drive, beautiful, bird-full Bruny Island and Port Arthur, the historic former penal settlement. Along the east coast – which has the mildest weather – the beaches are pristine, white-sanded and lapped by the bluest of seas.

Launceston, Tasmania’s second city, is in the north. It boasts the Cataract Gorge and, thanks to the bounty of the Tamar Valley, a reputation as a foodie city. Across the island, to the west, small villages give way to the Tarkine wilderness and the World Heritage Area, which accounts for about 20 per cent of Tasmania.

The national parks in the World Heritage Area include Southwest National Park, the Franklin-Gordon Wild Rivers National Park, the Cradle Mountain-Lake St Clair National Park, the Walls of Jerusalem National Park, the Hartz Mountain National Park and Mole Creek Karst National Park. Few places are as unexplored as Tasmania’s national parks.
