We’re pretty lucky here, we get to travel the world – In fact I’ve stayed in hotels 86 nights of the year so far, so when it comes to destinations we’ve seen a lot.

There’s Geoff’s favourite Vinyards, there’s the spectacular areas of Germany Chris visited a few months ago for the Frankfurt Motorshow, but when it comes to picking a destination to award in this way, we thought it should be in reach of our readers and Tasmania ticks that box and many many more.

I visited with my family for a five day holiday at almost exactly this time last year – the place has so much to offer, so much beauty, history and activities for everyone.

Why go overseas when something this special sits a short hop away? Tasmania is our pick for EFTM Best Destination 2017
