Cape Tribulation National Park or Tasmanian Wilderness

Cape Tribulation National Park
Home of the Tasmanian devil
This island-state off the country's southern coast, known as "Tassie" by the locals, is perhaps best known outside of Australia as the home of the Tasmanian devil-the whirling dervish of a marsupial that inspired the Looneytoon cartoon character. But to Australians, it's a fabulous place to spend a week's vacation. Tasmania has long stretches of uninhabited beaches, jagged (and often snowcapped) mountains, slow-moving creeks and rivers, gorges, historical sites, forests and a rugged shoreline.

The next stop is Hobart, the largest city (pop. 195,000) on Tasmania. Visit the Van Diemens Land Folk Museum or the Maritime Museum in the fine Georgian-style Secheron House. Browse through the arts-and-crafts galleries, coffeehouses and restaurants in the old sandstone warehouses of Salamanca Place (Saturday street market).

From Hobart, drive 60 mi/100 km past Eaglehawks Neck to Port Arthur, an old penal colony with another attractive view. For 57 years (1830-87) Port Arthur confined nearly 12,000 prisoners. Today, it has a museum displaying captains' logs that list the crimes of their passengers. Twelve miles north is the Tasmanian Devil Park, a refuge for the ferocious wolverine-like marsupials. Overnight at the Cascades at Koonya, a bed-and-breakfast in the old penal colony, or return to Hobart.

Nature lovers will enjoy hiking through Cradle Mountain-Lake St. Clair National Park, near the center of the island. At night you might see Tasmanian devils, wallabies and other animals. During the day you can go canoeing, fishing and hiking.

Two islands in the Bass Strait between Tasmania and the Australian mainland will appeal to adventurous travelers who aren't solely interested in shopping, nightlife or the creature comforts of civilization. King Island has attractive beaches and good seafood, tasty cheeses, as well as rating a three-night stay. There's a variety of accommodations available, primarily in Currie, the main town. Flinders Island, farther east resembles King in that it has a rugged coast and good beaches.
