Revitalise your mind, body and spirit in Tasmania.

From natural landscapes and restorative outdoor activities to rejuvenating spas and holistic wellness retreats – this island at the edge of the world provides a tranquil self-care experience like no other.

Soothing the body

Surrounded by rainforest at the edge of lush World Heritage-listed wilderness in Cradle Mountain-Lake St Clair National Park, Waldheim Alpine Spa offers indulgent treatments paired with unforgettable views over an ancient landscape of King Billy pines and icy mountain streams.

In Launceston, Cinergee’s Raw Beauty Bar is stocked with salts, oils and clays to create skincare products of your own. Head upstairs to treat yourself further at the on-site day spa and wellness retreat.

Lavada Medi Spa is an urban sanctuary on Hobart’s waterfront, just a short walk from the city centre. Sink in to a range of luxury treatments, including massages, body scrubs and facials at this boutique wellness destination.

Relaxing holistically

Seeking a deeper connection? On the east coast, Embodied Living takes a holistic approach to wellness, supporting a healthy mind and body through massage, yoga, breathwork, movement and retreats. Join a breathwork circle, take an acroyoga class or shift your energy with a powerful Kahuna massage.

Detox your mind and body at Harmony Harvest Health Retreat, just south of Hobart. Slow down and unwind during a five-night stress release retreat, with daily meditation, spa treatments, counselling sessions and wholesome vegan cuisine.

Nourishing the soul

Nurture your stomach and your soul at the Huon Valley’s Farmhouse Kitchen. Feel like part of the family at this cosy cooking school – whipping up authentic southern Italian dishes, then feasting on the likes of antipasto, pasta, focaccia, meatballs, gnocchi and cannoli.

Head to artsy Cygnet for a day of mindful crafting at Phoenix Creations. Relax and unwind as you shape your own wooden utensil using traditional hand tools at this rustic woodworking studio. This addictive practice is suitable for all levels of woodworking experience.

Reconnecting with nature

Discover the healing polarity of hot and cold on a Wild Wellness Fire and Ice Walk. In the wilds of Hobart’s wondrous kunanyi / Mount Wellington, a trained breathwork instructor will coach you through the Wim Hof method and an icy river plunge.

In the mountain-biking hub of Derby, Australia’s only floating wood-fired sauna, Floating Sauna Lake Derby, offers a traditional Finnish sauna experience, complete with a cold plunge directly off the pontoon into the freshwater lake.

Connect with the natural world at Hobart’s Royal Tasmanian Botanical Gardens, an extensive cool-climate garden that’s been nurtured since the early 1800s. Covering 14 hectares and encompassing Australia’s only sub-Antarctic plant house, there’s plenty of space for self-exploration, or join a weekend guided tour for deeper insight.

Living in serenity

Glamping provides the perfect combination of creature comforts and immersion in the Tasmanian landscape. Domescapes in the Vines is a bespoke vineyard escape in the Tamar Valley Wine Region. Set on a sprawling property, each geodesic dome has a full ensuite and expansive windows offering sweeping views of the surrounding vineyard.

At the Freycinet Peninsula on Tasmania’s east coast is charming eco-retreat, Numie. Understated glamping tents are tucked among the trees along the shore of Pelican Bay, with show-stopping views of the Hazards mountains across the water. Slow down, breathe deeply and rest well.
