Tasmania is Australia’s island state of beauty. Home to Dark MOFO and prehistoric flora, it’s an artists and botanists dreamscape. If you’re after a big city feeling, this is not for you - but if you’re after a big country town feel, you’re in luck!
Due to Hobart’s proximity to Antarctica it boasts some of the cleanest seafood in the country with clear waters where starfish are a regular sighting. Although, if you’re seeking an endless summer, this may not be the best place to study. Hobart’s proximity to Antarctica, also means spring feels like winter and summer feels like spring.
The student life is great, accommodation is the most affordable in the South, and the great outdoors provide great weekends away with 40% of Tasmania protested as national parks and / or state reserves.
