Tasmania is Australia’s island state located at the end of the world, a place where one can truly disconnect from stress and reconnect with the things that matter. In lieu of our opening, we would like to share our top picks for new experiences that your readers might find helpful when planning for their next trip.

For the wellness traveller – Pumphouse Wellness Retreats, Tasmania’s first luxury wellness retreat

Tasmania’s iconic boutique wilderness retreat, Pumphouse Point, has launched a series of seasonal wellness retreats for 2022 in Lake St Clair National Park. The first of their kind in Tasmania, the nature-based wellness retreats offer three and four-night stays guided by notable wellness specialists whilst being immersed in natural wilderness. The retreats will include daily breathwork and meditation sessions, yoga, mindfulness and stress management presentations, digestive health workshops and cooking demonstrations.

The next retreat will run from February 25 – March 4 2022 with rooms starting from $3582 for three nights.


For the wine lover – Mewstone Wines, D’Entrecasteaux drops

Mewstone Wines have opened their new cellar door 40-minutes south of Hobart in farmland overlooking the D’Entrecasteaux Channel. Situated in the romantically named rural locality of Flowerpot, the vineyard’s gently north-facing slopes capture the cool southern sunshine to produce premium winemaking grapes. Winemaker Jonny mastered his craft in Australia, New Zealand, Italy and Canada before heading back home to Tasmania. Formerly the Assistant Winemaker at Moorilla, he has branched out to start his own venture.

Pay a visit to the Tasting Room to sample the pinot noir, chardonnay and riesling grapes grown onsite. For $25, enjoy a flight of eight pre-selected wines in a hosted experience (for groups up to six). Make sure you try the hughes & hughes label. A playful, lo-fi range that allows for experimental practices obtained from Jonny’s global travels. A staple at Hobart wine bars.


For the quirky history buff – Secret Bank Society: History, drama, theatre, quirk and character

Feed your curiosity with a stay at the mysteriously intriguing Secret Bank Society in the unassuming township of Ringarooma in northeast Tasmania. Take a step back in time to a curated historical stay precisely decorated with detail and charm in the heart of the Tasmanian wilderness. Ringarooma is a central location for nearby walks at Mt Victoria, Mt Saddle Back and Mt Stronach. You can also visit Ralph Falls, ride the world-class mountain bike trails at Derby or soak up the heat at the Floating Sauna. The local Ringarooma River is great for gem fossicking or platypus spotting. Transport yourself back in time with mysterious old-world charm.
