Tasmania is the large island South of Australia. It is 66,000 square kilometres and about 300 kilometres long. It has a European climate and is 70% forest covered. In Tasmania you can see the natural wonders and the convict heritage of Australia, like in no other place. This is why over 200,000 tourists visit it every year. My website aims to show you what you can see.
On the left of each page is an index of all the attractions in Tasmania. You can go straight to a place, however, it is in your interests to read my pages START and DRIVING to help you avoid unpleasant surprises. My site follows this format:
HOME is where you are now.
START tells you important things you need to know.
DRIVING tells you about the roads.
INTERESTS takes you to sub menu pages on the NATURAL wonders, the HERITAGE sites and where you can see the unique ANIMALS of Tasmania. It also has an EVENTS CALENDER, where you can read about the major festivals and weekend markets.
REGIONS on the top menu bar takes you to the submenus of the ten different regions, where the attractions are. Each region has a green road map of the area, plus a number of attraction pages. Click on the name to go straight to that place's photo information page. These photo information pages tell you what you need to know. At the bottom of each page is a photo essay.
