Tasman Island

With the highest operating lighthouse in Australia, Tasman Island is an icon of Tasmania and is known as the home stretch for the world famous Sydney to Hobart race. Surrounded by 300m dolerite cliffs, this rugged and seemingly indestructible island is accessible via Tasman Island Cruises on a near daily basis. A breeding sanctuary for fairy prions and safe haven for a seemingly endless number of whales and sea life, Tasman Island is emblematic of the soul and spirit of Tasmania.
