Pack your hiking boots and go explore Tasmania!

A month ago I took the ferry across the Bass Strait to Tasmania. An often forgotten part of Australia. A lot of people seems a bit afraid of the cold…Which to be honest is very exaggerated and so not a reason to miss out of the natural beauty of this brilliant island. Sure it’s definatly not shorts weather during wintertime, but the average temperature in July is still between 4-12°c, so put on a hoodie and stop whining! Then again I’m from the far north of Sweden, a place so cold that not even the polar bears wants live there…

Almost half of the island lies within reserves, national parks and World Heritage Sites. It feels sort of like a mini-version of New Zealand. And I love it! Green lush hills, wild empty beaches, step cliffs, jagged mountain ranges, plenty of wildlife. And I’ve still got about half the island left to explore!

Tasmania is small enough to do in a few weeks, but brilliant enough to keep bringing you back.  So if you’re planing a trip to Australia, don’t be one of those people ignoring this amazing part of the country. Pack your hiking boots and go explore the Tasmanian outdoors!
