Tasmania has the worlds cleanest air & water

This is a place where tranquil rolling farm hills of green continue on into the distance, nestled between small one street country towns and two city hubs which are each substantially smaller than any main city in the world.

Tasmania is just a small Australian State, situated to the south of the country, off the coast of Victoria and with such amazing countryside scenery you would think you’re on a Lord of the Rings movie set. 

But boy can it rain in Tassie. Whilst being there for a little over one week, the sunshine was scarce. Although when the sun decided to come out and beam down, boasting its extraordinary colours, it was as though the man upstairs was hinting to the world that this astonishingly picturesque part of the world should not be forgotten, as it so often is.

In fact, Tasmania is such an un-polluted state, it has the cleanest air in the world. Not only that, but the water in Tassie is so pure it has been shipped to olympic athletes competing all around the globe.
There are an abundance of things to see in Tassie, however I would suggest a stay of 5 days would be sufficient to cover it all. That being said you can drive around the entire state in 2 days.

CradleMountain is one of the most renowned tourist sites, although upon my visit the weather was playing hardball and the cloud cover eliminated any views. On the way back down I stopped by Guide falls where tons of water flowed down the 3 major waterfalls, mimicking a quaint tropical rainforest.

During my visit, my favorite places that I visited were Doctor Rocks, Table Cape and Guide falls, that is when the clouds decided to let the sun out to play. You could spend 2 days just in Hobart, however I didn’t take a huge interest in the city, so I stuck to the mountains, driving around and checking out the magnificent countryside.

I stayed in Burnie during my visit and to the north of Burnie was the geographical site called Doctor Rocks that houses stunning views along with the opportunity to actually pan for gold. North of Doctor Rocks is Wynyard, where I drove up to Table Cape for more incredible views and to see the tulip farm which is another attraction on the mountain.

All in all, Tasmania truly is beautiful and if you are to visit Australia and not this state, you really are missing out on an amazing part of not just Australia, but the world.
