Tasmania in Winter is simply divine

Our co-founder Mario Paez has recently visited Tasmania, and here’s his take on Tasmania in Winter:

“Tasmania in winter is less crowded, less hectic and unbelievably relaxing. Think fireplaces, mulled wine and leisurely walks.

My recent trip away to Hobart and Freycinet proved to be the perfect quick winter getaway to switch off from the world, sleep in, chill out, but still be able to explore the stunning nature for which Tassie is famous.

There is no better place to do this than at Saffire resort. Stunning architecture and landscape, views of the Hazards and other mountains that simply will take your breath away.

As a 5 star all-inclusive resort it will leave you wanting to stay forever for the food, staff and beauty.

The simple drive from Hobart to the Freycinet peninsula has many options for a great lunch with the standout being Devils Corner Vineyard – a must for amazing fish and chips, super-fresh oysters, wood-fire pizza and, of course, the wines.

To mix it up after a 2-night stay at Saffire we moved to Macq01 in the renovated wharfs at Constitution Bay, with beautiful rooms, delicious breakfasts and friendly attentive staff.

It’s best to get a room with a waterfront view and balcony. Great for watching the sunset behind Mount Wellington as it colours up the skyline and bay.

From a visit to Salamanca markets, a drive to the top of Mount Wellington for the views and revitalising fresh air to all the cute new bars and restaurants in hip North Hobart, there is so much to see and do, but all at a country-town-like relaxed pace.

Make sure you leave a day aside for a visit to the amazing Mona – a refreshing Museum experience and catching the ferry over and back is a treat on its own.

Be warned it does get very cold in Tasmania in winter, but it is so worth a visit and the perfect escape from the everyday madness.”
