Tasmania has a range of outdoor activities on offer this spring, including sky diving, cultural tours and rainforest expeditions.
The south Australian island of Tasmania has plenty to offer adventurous travellers booking flights to Australia this spring, from sky diving to cultural tours and from wilderness treks to cycling adventures.
Following the recent news that UNESCO has listed 11 Australian convict sites as World Heritage sites, Premier Travel has launched its first ever Convict History of Tasmania tour.
Guests on the seven-night journey can take in the west-coast rainforest town of Strahan and the Port Arthur Historic Site amongst many other points of interest, and prices start at £1,530 based on a group of eight.
Alternatively, you can head into the wilderness with Tarkine Trails and explore the rainforest and its pristine swimming holes from your base at the only permanent accommodation in this highly remote area.
Finally, why not try the most extreme experience Tasmania has to offer? Hobart Skydive offers the greatest thrill off earth, with a 14,000 metre fall offering unrivalled views of the island. Prices for this ultimate adrenaline rush start at £225 per head.
