Local Attractions


Tahune Airwalk

Experience a bird's eye view of the world above the forest floor walking among the treetops past rare species, some found only in Tasmania. The walkway rises up to 48 metres above the ground and extends for around half a kilometre over the Tahune State Forest and Picton River.


Bruny Island

Bruny Island is an island of surprises - gentle countryside and wild coastlines, quiet beaches and roaring surf, lighthouses, farmhouses, and a rich heritage of sealers, whalers and explorers. There are many spectacular cliff-top walks in South Bruny National Park, while at The Neck Game Reserve you can see little penguins and shearwaters in great numbers on twilight tours in the breeding season.


Hartz Mountains

Hartz Mountains National Park, dotted with tarns and fragile cushion plants, provides sweeping views of the south-west wilderness all the way to the Southern Ocean.

Swim in the thermal pools, fed by a natural spring at around 28 degrees, surrounded by forest and ferns.
