Whether you’re researching your convict roots, working your way across the state as a gourmet gadabout, or seeking a wilderness and wildlife experience like no other, Tasmania is a terrific place to do any – or all. Ask anyone who’s been there.
The Rainbow Rambler returns in early March for a few sleep overs and explorations, including shopping at Salamanca Market , photographing the sunrise from Mt. Wellington and a night at Flamingo’s Dance Club, all in Hobart. Not to mention hand-picked experiences like meeting her adopted Tasmanian Devil, Molly, at Devils @ Cradle Sanctuary, and taking a World Heritage Cruise on the famous Franklin and Gordon Rivers Wilderness Area in Strahan on the West Coast. Art Food at Eucalypt Cafe with the boys in Port Arthur is a salivating thought.
As Tasmania continues the fight for marriage equality and human rights, the state’s “Rainbow Tasmania” approved operators encourage LGBT friends and families to try a taste of Tasmania by hanging out their gay welcome mats.
Warning! You may be transformed by travel in Tasmania.
Follow the Rainbow Rambler’s recommendations on places to stay, ways to play, events and must-do attractions behind the scenery – from the air, on the ground and up the creek. After all, she made the big Sea Change to tiny Tasmania with her backpack and camera – and has never looked afar for adventures and authentic experiences.
