Cheap flights to Tasmania
Often referred to as the 'retirees' hub of Australia', don’t be fooled - Tasmania is an adventure playground for the young and wild and free and has attractions and nightlife options you won’t want to miss. It’s no secret that a tour of Tasmania will probably require you to pull out the long johns, no matter what time of the year you travel – Tasmania is cold. Hobart is the capital of Tasmania with the Cascade Brewery and the Cadbury Chocolate factory a must-see on all vacations. The local seafood is excellent and for those looking for cheap holidays, freshly cooked produce can be purchased off the fish punts in Constitution docks. Take a day to travel southeast of Hobart to Port Arthur and check out the former penal colony. If you really need to unwind, Tasmania is a great holiday option – think log cabins and bonfires and marshmallows.
