Detached from mainland Australia, the island of Tasmania serves up a very different experience from your typical Australian holiday.
Be led into the alpine wilderness on a luxury guided walk and watch wildlife emerge at dusk as you sip Tasmanian Pinot. Or head out on a wild ocean cruise to enter sea caves and gaze at the tallest sea cliffs in the southern hemisphere, where you may encounter fur seals, dolphins and migrating whales. The locals of Tasmania love a good story, too. Expect ghost stories by candlelight; history that unravels as you eat, walk and talk; and tales told by local Tasmanian winemakers, whisky distillers and cheese makers.
It’s little wonder that well-travelled visitors are falling for this little island at the world’s edge.

"We planned the trip with Cox & Kings over an extended period and the whole experience surpassed anything that we could have imagined. We have never been treated so courteously, professionally and enthusiastically. It was truly a holiday of a lifetime."
