Tasmania / Lutruwita

Take a bite of the Apple Isle and you'll wish you had more time to discover an untamed natural paradise at the remote edge of the earth – a land of hidden valleys, prehistoric rainforest and craggy coastlines that reveal testaments to an ancient past. The island of Tasmania is home to just 500,000 people and not only the most beautiful beach lined coasts but World Heritage-listed mountains which can be driven between in just a few hours.  

The wonders of nature await on your Tassie adventure, from the vivid hues of the Southern Lights to the tantrums of the Tasmanian Devil. Spot the Tasmanian Devil on our Tasmanian Wonders trip and know that your holiday contributes directly to the Save the Devil Foundation, with AAT Kings donating annually to the protection of the iconic Australian marsupial.

Delve into Tasmania's convict history, the fascinating stories of its indigenous people and the creative verve of a capital fringed by ‘The Mountain'. There are many World Heritage-listed penitentiary buildings around Tasmania to tell the history of convict life in the 19th century with the most notorious being in the coastal Port Arthur.

Throughout our trips in Lutruwita/Tasmania we offer full culturally immersive experiences. Travellers will gain a deeper understanding of early settlers in Sheffield through the murals painted in town, delve deep into historic Port Arthur guided by a local historian and visit Sarah Island for an insight into a relic of Tasmania's convict history. Lutruwita/Tasmania also offers some of the most authentic culinary experiences, from whisky distilleries,  and award-winning cheese institutions to wineries, AAT Kings will ensure you enjoy fresh local Tasmanian produce on all our trips.  An extravaganza of delicious foodie flavours, country charm and captivating heritage awaits.



  • Hobart

    Hobart Docks

    An enchanting little city built around a beautiful yacht-studded harbour in the shadow of majestic kunyani/Mt. Wellington. A strong sea-faring flavour and sense of the past gives nipaluna/Hobart an almost European air. This feeling is heightened in summer when Hobart gets plenty of sparkling blue daysdays, but temperatures rarely exceed 25°C. Many of Hobart’s beautiful early colonial sandstone buildings were erected with the sweat and blood of the unfortunate convicts who formed the majority of the first European settlers in 1803. On our Tassie Getaway trip, you will be welcomed to Shene Estate near Hobart to enjoy both the stunning Australian historical architecture or the colonial era and an afternoon tea in the custodian, Anna Kernke’s home. Guests can also enjoy insider knowledge on the best food, wine and experiences in Hobart from their travel director on our Tassie’s Parks & Nature trip and explore the sights, sounds and flavours of the famous Salamanca market, an iconic Hobart must-do.

Owners Trish and Craig are proud palawa (Tasmanian Aboriginal) people, both descending from Manalargenna, Chief of the North East.

This opportunity of course also provides much needed jobs within the community.
