Ask just about any Aussie and they’ll tell you that Tasmania has been on their bucket list for a very long time. But because we’re always chomping at the bit to escape overseas, it often gets put on the backburner.
So if there's a silver lining to COVID it’s that we now have the chance to spend our hard-earned cash on some truly incredible Australian getaways—as well as supporting local businesses who have been doing it tough.
Fortunately for you, we, along with our mates at Intrepid Travel, have put together an epic holiday that showcases the rugged beauty and drool-worthy eats that Tassie has to offer.
Enter: Urban List Editor's Picks. A curated four-day getaway that will let you see some of the best parts of Tasmania that only the locals know about.
Whether you want to go solo or with a mate, on this intimate, immersive tour you’ll be taking in nature, wellness and top-notch eats, in equal measures.
To kick off the trip you’ll cruise into Launceston before heading east past sleepy towns and rolling, sheep-filled fields to the stunning seclusion and solitude of the Bay of Fires.
You’ll start each morning on the right note with a revitalising yoga session (and no you don’t need to be an expert), then you’ll head to the bay’s bright beaches rimmed with red-ringed rocks and visit local producers to sample Tasmania’s famous harvest. We’re talking the freshest seafood you’ve ever wrapped your choppers around and some very tasty tipples.
Come sundown, you’ll gather around the campfire where you’ll swap yarns and dine on dinners of local produce made by an award-winning local chef. Sounds pretty dreamy right?
Let’s be honest, 2020 has been a rough ride, this is the holiday you deserve.
Tours kick off on Monday 30 November and run monthly into 2021 so get booking here to reserve your spot on this special experience.
