Tasmania's weather is typically cooler than most of Australia, and summers are normally around 20 degrees celsius or so. Tasmania is a small and naturally serene island, dominated by rugged mountain ranges, lakes and rivers. Tasmania's capital city, Hobart, is home to only around 200,000 people, but is a popular spot to explore the original Victorian architecture, sandstone homes and English heritage that dominates the city.
Hobart and Launceston, the two largest cities in Tasmania, offer an inviting selection of activities and sights to see. Hotels and Apartments in both locations are usually more affordable than other Australian cities, and offering a wide range from budget accommodation to 5 star hotels.
The Spirit of Tasmania connects the mainland to Hobart and is a popular cruise liner from which to go on and explore Hobart and its surrounds.
