Tasmania

An island at the southeastern tip of the Australian mainland, Tasmania contains some of the world’s great wildernesses reaching from its high central plateau down through spectacular mountain ranges leading to the south and western coasts.

The region around the northern coast is rich farming and grazing area. The eastern coast extends from quaint fishing villages in the north, the beautiful Freycinet Peninsula and down to the capital city of Hobart and its famous 19th century penal colony, Port Arthur.

The main island and the many smaller islands that surround it, consist of over 64,000 square kilometers with 42 percent proclaimed as Natural Parks and Word Heritage Areas.
