There are several tourist cities in Australia like Sydney, Melbourne and Perth etc. But the state of Tasmania is fast coming up as a popular tourist destination in Australia. The favorite tourist destinations are Burnie, Devenport, Homart, City of Clearance, City of Glen Orchy etc.

About more than a million people visited Tasmania in 2013. According to air and water travel services about 1,007,000 tourists visited Tasmania in September 2013, out of which just 10% were the foreign nationals. Rest of the people was from the other states of Australia. The number of tourists visiting Tasmania increases in winter. 

The activities like festival of voice and FL football in Launceston city are the main tourist attractions. 

According to the department of tourism of Tasmania State, it was the social media which has boosted the tourism of the state and has given it more recognition. Besides, the visitors too have praised the natural beauty of Tasmania. 

About 1.3 million tourists visit the northern part of Australia every year and Tasmania too is coming close to this figure. 

It is estimated that about 2 million people will come to Tasmania by the end of 2020.

  1. Thank you for the detailed information. I think Tasmania is surely going to become tourists' most favorite place in Australia. In order to visit all the tourist attractions one should always take the help of a guide. Carrying Australia Road Map is also very helpful in exploring the country.
