Far South Tasmania

It's easy to forget the Far South exists when you are busy exploring the highlights of Hobart and its surrounds. Many families see the distance on the map as too far, and that there is not much to see, or do. That could not be further from the truth.

This region is home to some of Tasmania's most beautiful beaches, national parks and rainforests. With activities and destinations to make everyone in the family happy such as trains, kayaking, food, cider, hang gliding, forest walks, caves, thermal springs, fishing, swimming and more, we recommend an overnight stop, if not at least a full day to explore the Southern Trove of Tasmania.
