FOR A SMALL IS­LAND at the bot­tom of the world, Tas­ma­nia punches well above its weight when it comes to the sheer vol­ume of out­door ad­ven­tures on of­fer. From tack­ling the many walk­ing tracks that tra­verse the is­land’s epic south­west wilder­ness re­gion and climb­ing its re­mote peaks, to ex­pe­ri­enc­ing a world-rated white­wa­ter river ad­ven­ture and rid­ing amaz­ing MTB trails that have helped re­ju­ve­nate a town, it’s all here – and so close to main­land Aus­tralia there’s re­ally no ex­cuse to not ex­plore this ad­ven­turer’s par­adise.
