    These 18 Cottagecore Spots In Tasmania Are Straight Out Of A Picture Book

    Dreaming of the day we can finally do a road trip to all these spots.

    Where possible, we’ve done our best to name places featured in this post in both English and palawa kani, the language of Tasmania's First Nations Peoples. BuzzFeed have been working with the Tasmanian Aboriginal Centre to ensure all our posts honour the language and its resilience — we thank them for their contributions.

    Yeah, yeah, hotels and inner-city apartments are all well and good. But picture waking up in a stunning, heritage-listed homestead, surrounded by river views. Or starting your day with some cheeky cows peering through the window of your farm stay accommodation.
