Captivated by TasmaniaThis island seems to cram a large chunk of what Australia is famous for into one single destination
It may be a small island state, but Tasmania boasts expansive scenic backdrops and diverse wildlife to rival mainland Australia. Whether you prefer a serene experience exploring exquisite reserves and uncrowded beaches, or an engaging mix of thrilling outdoor activities, luxury holidays in Tasmania will take you on a unique and memorable tour of this wonderful island.
Hobart, the capital city of Tasmania, offers visitors a taste of epicurean delights, mountainous views and relic establishments of the convict days. With so much to see and do, you’re bound to be captivated by this charming city.
Take your time to wander the popular and lively Salamanca Market, where you can find anything from fashionable clothing and handmade jewelry, to delicate pottery, local artwork, fresh produce and the finest wines. Browse more than 300 stalls showcasing Tasmania’s best products to find the perfect souvenir to take home with you.
For a glimpse into Tasmania’s history, visit the well-preserved Port Arthur Historic Site, located on the Tasman Peninsula. The buildings are remnants of the past and give visitors a glimpse into the life and hardships of the convict era.
Another must-visit attraction is Mt. Wellington, where there are activities catering to all demographics. Families can enjoy a relaxing picnic or BBQ in the open space, or stroll through the scenic forest paths. Hikers of all levels can choose from the many walking trails winding through the foliage. Don’t miss the chance to head up the pinnacle, where you’ll be amazed at the breathtaking panoramic views of Tasmania’s stunning lands and coastlines.
Visit Bruny Island to immerse yourself in the island’s wilderness. Here, you’ll encounter the many species of birds that visit the island and see fur seals, fairy penguins and white wallabies as you explore. After a long day of activities, you’ll no doubt have built up quite an appetite. Take the time to sample the delectable local foods and wines across the many fine cafés and restaurants.
If thrills and excitement is what you seek, then Tasmania will readily meet your expectations. You can head down to King River or Derwent River for an exhilarating white water rafting tour among beautiful scenery. For something even more adventurous, try the Franklin River, which will take you between eight to ten days to complete. With class five rapids to navigate through, travelling down the river at high speed will be an experience you’ll never forget.

We have been using Azure to arrange our holidays for over 12 years. Every year usually twice a year, sometimes more, we rely on the experienced team at Chester to provide expert information on our chosen destinations. Be it a return to our established favorites in Barbados and Dubai or a new and exiting destination chosen from Azures brochure it is always handled in a friendly and competent manner. The small details are not missed such as do we need late check out or early arrival, which can make such a difference after sometimes long hours travelling. For us using Azure takes the uncertainty out of booking holidays.
We have been booking our holidays through Azure for 10 years and we can thoroughly recommend them. The Azure team arrange amazing holidays, well chosen destinations and hotels with a tailored itinerary that runs like clockwork with so many wonderful extras, it really takes the time and stress out of planning. When the weather has disrupted our journeys, their 24 hour service has provided us with 5* rescues! Nothing is too much trouble for Azure staff and the same goes for all the staff we have met on our Azure holidays which really are out of this world. We continue to recommend your company and all your wonderful team and look forward to our next holiday with you.
Well we are back in the UK after an amazing trip for a very special birthday and must thank Azure in Chester and Jayne O'Gorman for organising everything after we won the auction bid for this trip with SeaDream Yacht Club at Valerie's Summer Ball last year! We had the trip of a lifetime, met amazing people, visited fabulous places and befriended the superb crew aboard SeaDream I. We couldn't fault a single thing onboard - just amazing and hope we can meet the crew again at some future date! I even cried when i had to leave! Well done Azure and Jayne O'Gorman.
My first experience with Azure was when they came to my rescue when my family and I were stranded abroad on holiday without accommodation, their professionalism and ability to make things happen at very very short notice was second to none. They were very knowledgeable and were able to utilise their many relationships within the industry to get things resolved for me within an hour. I can't praise them enough for rescuing my family's holiday and making it a truly memorable time. Since then the team always do their best to make my holidays the best they can possibly be based on their own vast travel knowledge and experiences. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend them and wouldn't use anyone else for luxurious travel.
