The ‘Natural State’ Tasmania: has an endearing air to it, all thanks to its as yet unspoiled natural beauty. The ‘Sydney to Hobart Yacht Race’, the ‘Road rally in Tasmania’ and the music events make it a popular destination. ‘Falls Festival’ has drawn crowds for many years now. Around the time of Christmas, ‘Carols in the candlelight’ is another well-known event. The food festival has food and wine that attracts people in thousands. Wines such as ‘Cascade’ and ‘Boags’ are popular both in mainland Australia and also across the world. The cheese and dairy products are also a hit with the tourists. Cradle Mountain is another place in this state whose scenic beauty is seen to be felt. This mountain in the Cradle Mountain-Lake St Clair National Park is made of dolerite columns. The vegetation in this area is mostly alpine. At the Cradle Mountain, you could even be start off on the ‘Overland track’ that would take you across the mountain terrain over six days. You could take walks around the bushes and with the Lake Dove in the vicinity, the place must be visited. On a nocturnal visit, you could even run into animals such as pademelons, wallabies and possums.


The rugged terrain of Kimberley in Western Australia: is sure to have you perplexed. The cruise around this region is splendid as it offers views of waterfalls, red cliffs, rivers and some rainforest as well. King George Falls and Mitchell Falls have some of the most breathtaking views. This region also has some art centers. While the works of many foreign artists are on display, the local artists are also encouraged and these art shows are internationally recognized. Kimberley is also famous for its diamonds. The Bungle Bungles or Purnululu National Park is another attraction. However, this is closed for some months every year. You can start off on your Kimberley cruise either at Broome, Darwin or Derby. If you are planning to drive down to this place during the wet months, you need to check if the roads are closed.
