Your university years are not just about study, let’s be honest. You need a balance between hard work and plenty of play. And Tasmania is the perfect playground. Being an island, we are surrounded by waterways. Think yachts, kayaking, swimming and surfing.
We have more reserved wilderness than any other place on the planet – and it’s right on the doorstep of our cities. Hiking, mountain biking, climbing and camping are an easy afternoon or weekend activity. And we have animals here that simply don’t exist anywhere else in the world. This place is pristine and quite simply, beautiful.
But if the city is more your style, Tasmania has you covered. Our food, art and culture scene is a hot topic in tourism mags across the globe. For good reason. We have award winning festivals year round, stunning streetscapes, and a café culture that never stops.
The best thing is, the close proximity of the Uni to Tasmania’s numerous drawcards allows more time for you to get amongst it. Oh – and we’ve got the cleanest air in the world… perfect for blowing away the cobwebs from a big night (on the text books).
“The best part about Tasmania is the outdoor setting. Because of this, it really attracts a lot of likeminded people from all over the world
