Any visit to Tasmania will mean booking into some of the huge variety of accommodation that Australia's island state has to offer. Tasmania is one of Australia's most popular tourist destinations as its scenery is unlike any other part of the country and because it is home to some of the most pristine and remote, world hertitage listed, regions remaining anywhere in the world. The capital city of Tasmania is Hobart which lies in the south of the state. Many visitors come to Tasmania by crossing Bass Straight from Victoria on the vehicular ferry, Spirit of Tasmania, and start their Tasmanian adventure from Devenport or Launceston. These are located in the north of the state and Launceston is the largest city in this region. Those who fly in to Tasmania usually come from Sydney in New South Wales, and will fly in to Hobart. Both Hobart and Launceston have excellent supplies of hotel and resort accommodation.
Two main regions are among the most popular with those wanting to see Tasmania's world heritage listed remote regions. On the west coast, the towns of Queenstown and Strachan are the jumping off point to join cruises that traverse the magnificent Gordon and Franklin river systems. This region is totally inaccessible except for cruise patrons and bush walkers and the region is one of the most awe inspiring scenic regions anywhere in the world. The second region is the Lake St Clair National Park and the Walls of Jerusalem National Park as well as Cradle Mountain, all located in the midlands region of Tasmania. These spectacular mountain wilderness regions are famous for their beautiful lakes and rivers, escarpment scenery, trout fishing and spectacular wilderness scenery. If there is ever a chance that the Tasmanian Tiger will be rediscovered, it will be in one of these two regions. Tasmania's unique wildlife is on display here and animals like wallabys, wombats and Tasmanian devils are often seen.
In the south, Hobart is the dominant force in the accommodation market. Many popular tourist destinations like Port Arthur are within easy driving range and so most tourists here tend to stay in Hobart accommodation. Both the east and north coast are dotted with many small fishing villages that are worth visiting and these two regions as well as the midlands have many popular B&B's that are mostly housed in historic convict built buildings. There is an excellent and well promoted B&B network throughout Tasmania.
Tasmania provides accommodation for tourists at all market levels, so whether you are a company director or a backpacker, you will be able to find accommodation to suit your requirements.
