Tasmania, The Apple Isle
Tasmania, The Apple Isle Reviews
Sep 30, 2007
With tranquillity to sooth the soul, and scenery to take your breath away, it is no wonder that so many visitors to Tasmania never go home.
This wonderful state has something to tempt everybody. If you take pleasure in delighting your taste buds, then you will love the many different foods, beers and wines home grown and produced here, there is smoked salmon, fresh out of the sea lobster, berries and of course apples.
For the nature lovers, there are many walking tracks, from a quick 10-minute walk, to the stunning 6-day Cradle Mountain to Lake St Clare overland trek. Unique flora and fauna, the best known being the Huon Pine, which has been growing here for millions of years, and the ever-popular Tasmanian Devil can be found only in Tasmania.
Sightseeing is high on the list for many visitors to Tasmania, and the sights are many and varied; there are the historic sites like Port Arthur, vibrant markets around the state, with Salamanca Markets being the most famous, culinary sights, the Cadbury Chocolate Factory tour topping the list, and wilderness sights, a cruise upon the Gordon River being a ‘must do’ on any visitors itinerary.
Tasmania has so much to offer, you could come and visit for a few days, or you could easily fill in a month with all there is to do. Although it had an ominous beginning to its history, starting life as a penal colony, Tasmania has emerged into a wonderful tourist destination.
Whichever season you visit in, this tiny state will delight you. Whether you hire a campervan or stay in luxury guesthouses, you will love and remember your stay for a long time to come.
