Be a spirited traveller
Plan for the unplanned
Despite its relatively diminutive size, you could easily spend a month or more rambling around Tasmania. Of course, not all of us are lucky enough to have that luxury, but no matter what the length of your stay, be sure to include a day or even an hour or two for the unplanned – the side trip to a little bay or winery that a local whispered in your ear, a repeat visit to MONA or just time to see where the wind takes you.
Pack your curiosity as well as your luggage
The great thing about Spirit of Tasmania is there are no luggage restrictions – pack your hiking gear, your kayak, even some extra bags for all the local produce you plan on purchasing. Also be sure to pack an open, inquisitive mind on the open road, so that you’re ready to absorb every experience that comes your way.
Make the journey part of the destination
When you sail, your journey starts as soon as you set foot aboard. Start by watching the lights of the city recede into the distance (perhaps with a glass of Tassie vino or craft beer in hand). Next choose from an array of family favourites and delicious desserts as you watch the sun set outside. Then it’s time for a movie and some live acoustic music before retiring to your cabin for a cosy night’s sleep to dream of what awaits you in the morning.
Your trip to Tassie is all about what you make of it – whether you’re a total foodie, avid wilderness explorer, culture vulture or even if perhaps you’re none of those things, but open to trying anything. Almost every leisurely pursuit has been perfected down here – the wine, beer and whiskey is world class, the forest pristine and untouched, the coastline wild and rugged, the wildlife unique, the art challenging and mind-expanding, and the food - well, you’ve just gotta try it. If you’re ready for anything, you’ll find it in Tasmania.
