Bruny Island is a popular destination all year round, yet spring offers a unique experience not available in other seasons. Spring is a breeding season for marine life such as whales and fur seals with Bruny Island attracting both. A boat cruise is a perfect way to explore the Island, showing the magnificent cliffs and seal colonies, and maybe a whale or two if you’re lucky!

Royal Tasmanian Botanical Gardens

Ride the West Coast Wilderness Railway

Sit back and relax while watching the beauty of nature fly by, with life and colour returning after the long winter. The West Coast Wilderness Railway is a steam railway like no other, operating full and half-day journeys along a historic 35km track between Queenstown and Strahan. Cutting a path through some of Tasmania’s most beautiful scenery, this ride offers breath-taking views only accessible by the railway!

Raft the Franklin River

The Franklin River forges through the rugged south west of Tasmania, through deep gorges, quiet pools and magnificent temperate rainforest. The spring months bring this wonderful river to life, as the snow begins to melt from the high plains around Lake St Clair, creating higher water levels and more exciting rapids! For those not so keen on the rapids can enjoy the huge array of birds, including Sea Eagles that nest proudly high above the river.
