Did you know that Tasmania has some of the cleanest air in the entire world? Take a deep breath in, relax and think about the possibilities that lie ahead when you take the time to unwind and explore Australia. Tasmania is one of the most popular romantic destinations in Australia and it’s easy to see why, from historic Port Arthur to the scenic Cradle Mountain, Tasmania is home to totally unique romantic experiences.

The World-Heritage listed Cradle Mountain Lake St. Clair National Park, home of the famous Cradle Mountain in Tasmania’s Western Wilderness is a must see on any romantic holiday. Said to have the cleanest air in the world, it is the perfect place to enjoy Tasmania’s pristine environment. Take one of Cradle Park’s famous tours such as the Explorer tour which will take you to the beautiful Dove Lake for a breathtaking view of Cradle Mountain. Visit chalets and learn about the flora and fauna of the area. Or take the ‘Night with the Animals’ tour in a 4WD coach for a more adventurous look at the marsupials that only come out at night, giving you a chance to glimpse the famous Tasmanian Devils in their natural habitat.

Why not enjoy the fresh air of the wilderness from the comfort of a luxurious cabin at a caravan holiday park? Perfect for a romantic getaway, many parks have spacious cabins with gorgeous modern décor, private balconies, state of the art kitchens, and other to-die-for features such as surround sound media centres and spa baths. From absolute beachfront cabins, to mountain escapes there is no better place for a couple to enjoy some quiet alone time.

You and your partner can also experience some of Australia’s biggest thrills and chills on Tasmania’s wild Franklin River. With rapids with names like Thunderush and the Churn, white water rafting on the Franklin River is guaranteed to be a wild ride.

The very best way to experience all that Tasmania has to offer is staying in a caravan holiday park, it’s the best way to be close to nature while also just stone’s throw away from some amazing tourist attractions. There are so many natural wonders to see in Tasmania, from lush farmlands, wild rivers, and mountain wilderness, it’s no wonder Tassie is known as the nature state!

  • As a Tassie girl I can recommend Tasmania for any type of holiday experience. Family still live there, however I haven’t for over 30 years but we go back for holidays and don’t stay with family as there’s so much to still explore – hiring a car or taking your own on the ferry is the best way to see the place. A must see is Port Arthur.


  • Years ago we decided to explore Tasmania for a couple of weeks either side of Easter. We hired a car, drove from Launceston to Hobart, then up the east coast, across the top, and down the west coast. The scenery was amazing, the food delicious, the people friendly, and we fell in love all over again. We’d like to retire to Tassy.
