Known for its natural beauty, Tassie is filled with beautiful landscapes, iconic sights, and locations, with plenty of activities to do. Uncover the magic of Tasmania in your RV by visiting our top destinations.

Russell Falls 

One of Tasmania’s most special places is Russell Falls. It’s a mesmerising waterfall located in Mt Field National Park and part of Tasmania’s World Heritage Wilderness Area. Russell Falls is just over an hour’s drive from Hobart.

The waterfall is surrounded by towering trees framed by tall ferns and features an immense stream of water that rushes out over horizontal marine siltstone benches. For local campers who want to explore at night, you can trek near the falls and see glow worms among the vegetation. Russell Falls is a family friendly location and accessible to wheelchair users and parents with strollers.

Cape Pillar 

Cape Pillar is a hero destination in Tasmania and has some of the most unbeatable views. It is known as the ‘jewel in the crown’ of the Tasman Peninsula’s colossal coastline. With cliffs rising to 300m, Cape Pillar exhibits remarketing scenes expanding north to other rousing

capes.

To make the most of your experience, Cape Pillar is best reserved as a multi-day 22km walk. If you embark on this trail, you will pass historical landmarks, native wildlife, lush forests before reaching the most exquisite views. For diehard explorers, camping is available at Wughalee Falls or Bare Knoll.

Cradle Mountain

One of the most astonishing sites to see in Tasmania is Cradle Mountain. Only 1.5 hours’ drive from Devonport and 2.5 hours’ drive from Launceston, it is located at the northern end of Cradle Mountain Lake in St. Claire National Park.

Cradle Mountain is wildly considered one of Australia’s iconic wilderness destinations as it provides a rich habitat for wildlife, including Tasmanian devils, quolls, platypus, echidna, and several birds. Campers can also indulge in plenty of canyoning tours, spa treatments, track walks, trail adventures, and star gazing. It is such a remarkable and popular place to visit during winter and spring.

Honeymoon Bay 

Honeymoon Bay is a spectacular location in Tasmania and is known for its natural beauty. It is a two hour drive from Launceston and sits on the Freycinet Peninsula of Tasmania. Visitors always return to this destination because of its striking backdrops of fragrant native bush and features shallow sapphire waters; a perfect place to wind down and relax.

Honeymoon Bay is a popular place for swimming, canoeing, fishing, boating, and picnicking. There are also various hiking paths, such as the Honeymoon Bay Track, where you can see historical artifacts and spectacular views of North Point and Cape Moreton.

Bay of Fires

If you’re interested in driving across one of the most impressive coastlines in Australia, visit the Bay of Fires located in the north region of St. Helens. Bay of Fires is well known for its extraordinary clear blue seas, brilliant white beaches, and striking, orange-coasted boulders. The coastline stretches for 50kms from Binalong Bay in the south to Eddystone Point in the north, and it is a gorgeous place to camp for travellers who want photographic views.

Exploring the coastline and bird watching are popular activities at Bays of Fire. Visitors also enjoy snorkelling and diving in the scenic reefs, corals, underwater caves, and see abundant sea life. Bay of Fires is a fantastic place to see a wealth of wildlife and reconnect with nature.
