Lake Oberon, Tasmania

Clear blue skies, comfortable temperatures, and fall foliage make March and April two of the best months for walking tours in Tasmania, Australia's smallest state and one of our editors' favorite destinations for spring. Walking routes on the island range from easy strolls along Cornelian Bay in the capital city of Hobart, to challenging bushwalks in remote Southwest National Park, home to Lake Oberon, pictured here.
