Exploring Heritage

​​​​​Tasmania is renowned for its historic villages; early and intact convict, colonial and maritime sites; rich cultural activities and diverse stories of interesting people and evocative places. Some of these places include the Cataract Gorge in Launceston, Port Arthur in Tasmania's South, or Strahan in Tasmania's South West. 

What makes Tasmania extra special is that its historic heritage remains largely intact, and most towns across the state have beautiful heritage precincts that the public can enjoy. In Hobart, you can easily wander around Sullivans Cove, Salamanca Place, and Battery Point. Between Hobart and Launceston you can detour off the highway and explore historic villages like Bothwell, Evandale, or Ross, while a wander around the CBD of Launceston will soon uncover some heritage gems. 
You can find more information about some of Tasmania's heritage visitor
