Tasmania is a place of wild and beautiful landscapes, friendly, helpful people with a relaxed island lifestyle, wonderful wine and food and a haunting history evoked by spectacular convict ruins.
Discover Tasmania is your first stop in finding out What’s on in Hobart and the South, as well as the rest of the state. If you are planning an extended stay pre or post symposium there is even a link to Self-Drive itineraries.
Visitor Information Centres are part of the Tasmanian Visitor Information Network, staffed by friendly knowledgeable locals who are passionate about Tasmania, and in particular – their areas. Look for the blue and yellow ‘i’ – drop in and get advice, maps and ideas or book an adventure or your an overnight stay.
Visitor Information Centres are open seven days a week.
Or, download the Tasmanian Visitor Centre app for use smartphones and tablets. The app provides an easy and convenient way to access a comprehensive range of Tasmanian tourism products and services including attractions, accommodation, restaurants, events and more.

If you just want to get a taste what Tasmania has to offer, you could consider taking a scenic full or half day tour with Experience Tasmania . Full day tours range from experiencing cool temperate rainforests with unique Tasmanian timbers and wild rivers to visiting the compelling and dramatic reminder of our convict past at Port Arthur.
Perhaps, for something fun and different jump on the Red Decker bus for a loop around the city!
No matter where you go in Tasmania, whether you spend time in one location or drive around the island, you’ll be delighted by what you’ll find and surprised at how much bigger Tasmania really is on the inside.
