The island state of Tasmania, known affectionately by Australians as “Tassie”, is located just south of Victoria. Its capital, Hobart, is now attracting a large number of Australian and international visitors who are craving the ultimate wilderness escape mixed with great food and wine. Hobart is also home to the groundbreaking Mona (the Museum of Old and New Art) and a constant parade of new bars and restaurants, while plans are afoot for a cable car up to the city’s highest natural vantage point, kunanyi/Mount Wellington.
