Heritage and heart

Rich in history, stories and beauty, this is a journey of the past and the future.

A journey in central Tasmania will nudge your sense of time. Your path winds through lands traditionally owned by Tasmanian Aboriginal nations, settled by Europeans in the early 1800s, and farmed and loved by generations of Tasmanians since. Detour on convict-built roads and follow country lanes hemmed by hedgerows. Find old-fashioned country hospitality along streets lined with Georgian-era facades. Then venture into the Central Highlands, a wild landscape of lakes, mountains and moors with a rich hydro-industrial legacy.
