About Tasmania

Tasmania or 'Tassie' as it’s known locally is located about two hundred and forty kilometres off the south east coast of mainland Australia and has a population of around half a million.

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.

Getting to Tasmania by sea is relatively simple and stress free. Ferries depart from Port Melbourne on mainland Australia and dock at the Esplanade in East Devonport on the north side of Tasmania. The popular crossing operates year round and is run by TT-Line with their Spirit of Tasmania ferries.

About Australia

Australia is the world’s sixth largest country, by land area, consisting of the mainland, Tasmania and thousands of smaller offshore islands.

For such a massive nation, the population only reaches around twenty-four million, culminating in a huge expanse of breath taking, untouched wilderness, known as ‘the outback’, with almost ninety percent of Australians residing in coastal cities. Sydney, the largest of which, boasts a collection of beaches and trendy bars alongside its iconic Opera House and Royal Botanic Garden.

Australian excursions include jaunting off to the Whitsunday Islands for Great Barrier Reef diving, or hopping over to Kangaroo Island for its wonderful National Park, while the Tiwi Islands, in the north, showcase the fascinating Aboriginal way of life.

With numerous islands around the Australian coast, travelling by ferry is the best way of reaching the mainland, allowing you to enjoy the brilliant oceanic views along the way.
