Tasmania – quite literally an island on the edge of the world, steeped in history and beauty. First sighted by Dutch Explorer Abel Tasman, who originally named the island Van Diemen’s Land, Tasmania is a land of pristine wilderness, fine fresh produce, rich colonial heritage and Aboriginal culture.
Tassie, as she is affectionately known, is an island of amazing contrasts. From Cradle Mountain’s pristine wilderness and World Heritage landscapes, to the sweeping white sandy beaches and rocky shores of Freycinet National Park, there’s an unspoiled gift from nature at every turn. The island is also known for its fresh from the farm foods and crisp cool-climate wines from emerging vineyards.
