Beautiful Tassie is home to some amazing walking experiences. Off Australia’s southern coast, this little island is known for its vast, rugged wilderness, set largely within protected parks and reserves. The walks here are breathtaking, and something to consider as part of your visit to Australia. However, don't be fooled by Tasmania's serene beauty, weather in these parts of the world can often be unpredictable, particularly at higher altitudes, so make sure you are well prepared. Also some of its most beautiful and popular walks, such as the overland track fill up very quickly (registration opens on the 1st July of every year) as numbers are limited on the trail to conserve its rugged beauty.
