Separated from mainland Australia by the 240 kilometres (150 miles) stretch of Bass Strait, Tasmania is a land apart - a place of wild, mountainous and beautiful landscapes; friendly, welcoming people; temperate climate; quality wines and food; a spirited history; and a creative arts community - all wrapped up in a relaxed lifestyle. More than 20 percent of the island is protected as World Heritage Area, national parks and state and marine reserves.
Lose your breath at Wineglass Bay and discover shipwrecks and diamonds on Flinders Island. Walk over Cataract Gorge, a stunning wilderness in the heart of Launceston, or head to the World Heritage-listed wilderness. See your face in Dove Lake and trek the Overland Track in Cradle-Mountain-Lake St Clair National Park. Wander through dark Gondwanan rainforest Southwest National Park and watch two wild rivers tumble through valleys as one in Franklin-Gordon Wild Rivers National Park.
As well as natural beauty, Tasmania has a thriving culture, a rich history of convicts, pioneers, miners and whalers and fabulous food and wine.
