Pubs and Bars
Wherever you are in Tasmania, there's sure to be a pub nearby with a great stock of local beer, wine, whisky and cider and if modern stylish bars are more your go, you'll find plenty of those as well.
Tasmania's early history, with its tough whalers and sailors, guaranteed a pub on every corner of Tasmania's many seaports.
Today you'll find everything from cosy Georgian taverns and grand Victorian hotels to sophisticated city bars and rustic country pubs.
Whatever the style and setting, Tassie is a great place to meet and mingle with the locals and engage in some good old-fashioned Tassie talk.
Enjoy a local drop - from the famous big city brews to a long list of craft beers, ciders, wines and whiskeys from all over the state. Match these with some comfort food or haute cuisine and taste the best of Tasmania in one easy sitting.
Some of Australia's oldest pubs can be found here, wrapped in sandstone and full of history, stories and old-world charm. Take a guided tour of the historic pubs and inns of Hobart and Launceston or stop at a country pub for a bit of local history and flavour.
Many also offer great entertainment with a strong live music scene that offers everything from local indie bands and traditional folk music to international rock bands, comedians and DJs.
Even a simple game of pool and an old jukebox in a quiet country pub can make for a great night out. Add a meal and accommodation and you can even make it a great night in.
