    SOUTH AUSTRALIA ITINERARY: 2-3 WEEKS ON THE ROAD

    WHAT TO SEE IN HOBART, THE CAPITAL OF TASMANIA

    Hobart is the capital of the insular state of Tasmania, in the southeast of Australia.It’s a young city like the rest of Australia, with little more than 200 years of history.

    Windin Falls is a spectacular waterfall located within Wooroonooran National Park in Tropical North Queensland.It takes about two hours from Cairns, plus a 5-km-hike before uncovering it.Being not easy to reach makes it even more rewarding to get to.
