Best known for its most recognisable landmark, Table Cape – fondly coined by locals as ‘the Cape’ – Wynyard, Tasmania is a coastal plateau and plug of an old volcano. Spring has become a pivotal time to visit, with crowds flocking to Table Cape’s tulip farm.
With large enough tulip formations that you can see from the air, this is truly the perfect time to visit this stunning town, nestled right up against the ocean. To find out more about visiting Wynyard, please click here.
