No doubt about it, Hobart’s future is looking rosy, riding high above the city is Kunanyi/Mt wellington, a rugged monolith seemingly made for mountain biking and bushwalking. Down on the waterfront, the Salamanca Place cafes, bars and restaurant showcase the best of Tassie produce. There’s nothing more great eating and boozing along Elizabeth St in bohemian North Hobart.
Conjure up an image of Tasmania and its likely Cradle Mountain will come to the top of your mind. This iconic mountain, protected within Cradle Mountain-Lake St Clair National Park, is a unique landscape, with its famed craggy peak reaching to the sky and reflective Dove Lake surrounded by pristine forest lying serenely at its feet
Bay of Fires
In a country full of pristine coastline, the Bay of fires in north-east Tasmania stands out for its unique combination of white sand, turquoise water and red-lichen-splashed boulders that many thinkthe stretch of sand was named after. It was actually named Captain Tobias Furneaux in 1773 when he saw the many fires Aboriginal people were burning on its shore.
