Toluna's ANZ Road Trip: Tasmania
Closed

Today we've left the mainland and arrived in Tasmania! Australia's smallest state is packed with a multitude of wonderful places to visit - from rugged wilderness to art museums and historic sites.

Many people associate Tasmania with the old convict settlement of Port Arthur - despite the tragedy of modern events, this remains a must see for those looking to learn about Australia's past. If you believe in ghosts, you can even join a lantern-lit ghost tour of the ruins. If nature is more your thing, there are a number of national parks - such as Freycinet National Park, Tasman National Park and South Bruny National Park - where you can hike and explore pristine landscapes as well as look out for the native wildlife. Which Tasmanian locations would you suggest to visit?

Tasmania is also a great destination for foodies, and visitors should definitely sample the local produce, cheeses and seafood. Since we started our virtual road trip, we haven't talked about local food and delicacies. What are some of your favourite local foods - whether from Tasmania or closer to home? For many of us in the Toluna Team, food is an important part of travel. We always try to eat where the locals eat, and are even willing to taste the the more unusual delicacies that we come across. Have you sampled any unusual dishes while traveling? Answer this topic to receive 300 points, and you could also be featured in our upcoming video postcard!

We're almost at the end of our trip, but you can still win some points and prizes! Keep track of our journey at our blog: http://tolu.na/l/z4F9SiAs6

Try the east coast for fresh seafoods and wineries. Climb to the top of the Hazards to look down on the iconic Wine Glass Bay. Enjoy the mild climate as you explore the small townships on your way to or from Hobart. But don't miss the West coast with its winding roads, stark contrasts in scenery and the wild windy beaches. While there, take a guided quad bike ride on the stunning Henry Dunes and Ocean beach. An unforgettable experience.

I love Tasmania travels, from the ferry trip over, to the rolling hills and stunning scenery. It is really reasonably priced to take your car over on the ferry and accommodation abounds once there. Cradle Mountain and the multitude of friendly wildlife is one of my favourite places, along with Port Arthur and it's gorgeous little paddemelons which were so forward, coming into our cabin looking for food. Have done both Launceston and Port Arthur Ghost Tours and both were awesome. The East Coast towns of Swansea and Bicheno are beautiful, with such friendly locals who love to talk of their area and share the history.

Have only been there once Year 9 camp (from Victoria) from what I remember we spent most of the time travelling by bus, 2 nights at the movies watching the same movie Hook with Johnny Depp we all slept through it the 2nd night including the teachers. Best part was the boat ride there and back but back especially because we met some lovely deaf people who taught us swearing in sign language (we weren’t meant to speak to anyone) in particular other schools hence the same movie twice

The oysters I had on a day trip around Bruny Island were delicious! I think one of the best parts about travelling is trying new food, whether it's deliberately or unknowingly. Years ago I was in Germany with a friend and we met a local girl who invited us to her place for dinner. Her grandmother cooked a stew which was delicious, but my friend stopped eating when she found out the main meat in it was lungs. I thought it was fine. More recently, I tried Salted Egg Yolk Fish Skin Crisps - possibly the most addictive snack food I've had in a long time! They're originally from Singapore but I found them in Hong Kong last year, and have seen them in some Asian supermarkets in Sydney recently. Yum!

So many lovely places, Port Arthur sounds very interesting and the National Parks - amazing. I would like to go here exploring one day; what an adventure and sampling local produce 'a dream', I am always willing to try new foods. Thanks, enjoying the road trip!

The best State by far, which is why most of us always return to Tasmania.

Have visited Tassie often - each time to a different place ands loved every one. The Huon Valley and various areas of Hobart itself, Burnie and the norther climes. One day I must go back and check out Freycinet which is the only area I haven't been to. Straughn is a magnificent place and is Queenstown where we visited with prior occupants of the town. They told us that if something starts to grow then it is removed so that the bad vibes are never forgotten about the mining in this area ??? why would the greenies do this? However, we loved the way the timber forests were controlled and the island is just a magnificent place to visit. Brunei Island oysters in season are fantastic.

The "ultimate" destination if we're talking roadtrip! Uniqueness, beauty, history and fun... Tassie has it all! I've been a few times and will definitely be back to explore some more. It's like no other state in Australia and is somewhere you can never get enough of... love it!
