Tasmania Today: A Very Gay-friendly Destination
Wilderness, heritage, art & culture, wine & food - they're waiting for you in Tasmania!
Tasmania has some of the most progressive laws and policies on sexual minorities in the world and the Tasmanian community is tolerant of sexual minorities. In fact opinion polls show greater support for gay and lesbian rights than anywhere else in Australia.
Homosexuality has had a sometimes turbulent history in Tasmania, but today, tolerance is expressed through the fact that Tasmania has the world's best relationship laws, and A PROACTIVE lesbian and gay tourism task force. Many of Tasmania's tourism operators have taken part in workshops on sexual diversity. They recognise that, just like all other visitors, gay and lesbian travellers want an enjoyable and memorable holiday and want to feel genuinely welcome and accepted wherever they go in the state. Tasmania does not have the population to support a big gay and lesbian 'scene', but the community is very active. There is a range of nightspots in Hobart and Launceston, and most operate on selected evenings.
