Tasmania (TAS), or the ‘Apple Isle' as its affectionately known, is Australia’s smallest state in land area(68,401km2), as well as it’s least populous state (515,000 people). Tassie is well known for being the natural state, with over 45% of the island covered in National Parks, reserves and World Heritage sites. Tasmania was the founding place of the world’s first ever environmental party. Tasmania is the largest island of an array of 334 smaller islands in the South-Eastern corner of Australia.
The state is named after Dutch explorer Mr Abel Tasman, who was the first person to discover the island in 1642. Tasman named the island Van Diemen’s Land after his sponsor Anthony Van Diemen, the Governor of the West Indies. It was later changed in honour of Tasman in 1856.
Tasmanian food is well-known for being exceptionally fresh and full of flavor. Iconic foods from Tasmania include Salmon, Dairy foods such as cream, milk and cheeses, apples, pears, abalone, crayfish, cherries etc.
Most recently a Tasmanian Whisky producer, ‘Sullivan’s Cove’ won the converted best single malt whisky in the world competition. There are also well established beer and wine producers that are common names in Australia and beyond.
The temperatures of Tasmania can range from cold and wet in the winter months (Jun – Aug) to dry and hot in the summer months (Dec – Feb). Based on the seasons, various sports and activities are available to participate or to spectate. Cricket is the most popular sport in Summer and Aussie Rules is the choice winter sport. Rugby and soccer are played, but are not as popular as cricket and Aussie Rules. Fishing is extremely popular and hiking/gardening are also regular pastimes all year round.

Experience the beauty of the apple isle, experience the warmth of Taswegians (nickname for Tasmanian people), eat drink and be merry. The Tasmanian environment is such a key attraction to the state’s tourism industry, so enjoy the raw, natural and unique splendor.
