Tasmania (TAS)

The island state of Tasmania is located south of Victoria and is separated from the mainland by the Bass Strait. Tasmania is easily accessible from the mainland with daily flights and ferry services.

The Tasmanian landscape is famous for its natural beauty, much of which is protected by law. Across the state, visitors can enjoy stunning scenery ranging from tall granite peaks, to lush fertile valleys, untouched beaches and coastal dunes.The capital city of Hobart has a population of just over 200,000 people. The stunning peak of Mount Wellington overlooks the city, which is surrounded by the Derwent River. Historic Hobart has the atmosphere and charm of a small town while still offering all the conveniences of a capital city. It also marks the finish line of the internationally famous Sydney to Hobart yacht race.

The Cradle Mountain – Lake St Clair National Park is one of the most popular natural areas in Tasmania. Cradle Mountain is the starting point for the Overland Track, a six-day walk through fine mountain terrain.

Due to Tasmania's size, the many attractions are easily accessible without days of travel, making the state very popular for pushbike tours and bushwalking treks.
