Tasmania is promoted as the natural state, and A World Apart, Not A World Away owing to its large and relatively unspoiled natural environment.
Almost 45% of Tasmania lies in reserves, national parks and World Heritage Sites. The island is 364 kilometres long from its northernmost to its southernmost points, and 306 kilometres from east to west.
Tasmania is a place of wild and beautiful landscapes, friendly, helpful people with a relaxed island lifestyle, wonderful wine and food and a haunting history evoked by spectacular convict-era ruins.
It’s also Australia’s smallest state and the most geographically diverse with over 40 per cent of Tasmania reserved as national park and world heritage area.
So no matter where you go in Tasmania, whether you spend time in one location or drive around the island, we know you’ll be delighted by what you’ll find and surprised at how much bigger Tasmania really is on the inside. (source: www.discovertasmania.com.au)
