Tasmania is a beautiful, green part of Australia- and that’s what makes it the perfect place to go hiking.
It’s not too hot, the scenery is to die for. What more could you want?
To make things easier, we listed our favourite hiking spots in the southern state.
Cradle Mountain in itself is a breathtaking experience.
It can be a steep climb at points, but the scenery around you is entirely worth it.
You’ll see lakes that reflect rainbows, mossy trails and dense forest with trickling waterfalls at every turn.
We recommend going in off peak, sometimes it’s almost like walking through the snowy forest in Narnia.
Heading back over to the eastern side, Coles Bay is next on our list.
Walk along down the beach and check out all the little rock pools on the way.
Not only that but you’ll have a beautiful stretch of coast to admire the entire way.
Being Tasmania’s highest permanent waterfall, the Montezuma Falls track is a hard one to beat.
The green shrubbery and mossy tracks are a great way to unwind and turn your brain off for a few hours.
It’s such an impressive sight even David Attenborough would be forced to stop in his tracks.
Mt Wellington is arguably the most popular mountain in Tasmania with its close proximity to capital city Hobart.
In the winter months it’s often a ski-hill, but in the summertime it’s the perfect place for a hike.
Our favourite is the “springs” trail.
