Tasman Penisular

 

Embark on an unforgettable journey to the Tasman Peninsula, a pristine sanctuary in the southern hemisphere featuring three majestic capes. Immerse yourself in the area's rich history and witness the raw power of nature by exploring its awe-inspiring blowholes. A trip to Port Arthur, a globally significant site forming part of the UNESCO Australian Convict Sites World Heritage Property, is an opportunity not to be missed. As one of only 11 such sites in Australia, it provides a rare window into the country's fascinating past.

Coal River Valley

Discover the charming town of Richmond, located in the heart of the Coal River Valley. This region is famous for its delectable cuisine and award-winning wines, and has a rich history dating back to 1823 when the Richmond Bridge was constructed. This bridge remains the oldest working bridge in Australia. The region was first explored by pioneering British settlers who used it for grazing, pastureland, and crop cultivation. Today, the valley boasts some of the most exceptional vineyards, producing premium, slow-maturing grapes that thrive in the cool climate. Named after its early discovery of coal deposits, the valley has since transformed into a picturesque landscape filled with bountiful harvests.
