Full of colour and flavour, Tasmania's north-west is the gateway to some of Tasmania's most beautiful natural places. Exploring the north-west you'll find classic coastal drives, food trails, stunning national parks and beautiful nature reserves.
Tasmania's north-west is a great place for touring and offers spectacular views at every turn, from Mt Roland near Devonport, Table Cape near Wynyard and the famous Nut at Stanley. And some of Tasmania's prettiest cities and towns sit right on the water's edge on the scenic north-west coast, each with their own unique attractions and relaxed seaside atmosphere.
The north-west is also home to the Tarkine, one of the world's last great wilderness experiences, Australia’s greatest expanse of cool temperate rainforest and the largest in the world.
There's an ongoing tradition of agriculture here that's evident in the rich red soils and patchwork fields found throughout the countryside. The ideal growing conditions have inspired growers and makers committed to producing the very best in fresh crisp vegetables, dairy products, wines, whisky and sweet treats for the hungry traveller – the ultimate paddock to plate experience. Follow the Cradle to Coast Tasting Trail and you'll experience some of Tasmania's finest producers.
There's a wealth of stories here too, with great museums and significant Aboriginal heritage sites, while the region's creative spirit is showcased in the many art galleries, public artworks, artisan shops and markets found along the north-west coast.
