Discover Tasmania, Australia! Tourist Information for planning your next Tasmania Holiday including - Accommodation, Tours, Attractions, Flights and a whole lot more ... Separated from mainland Australia by the 240 kilometre stretch of Bass Strait, Tasmania is a green island of wild, mountainous and beautiful landscapes; friendly, welcoming people; temperate climate; quality cool-climate wines and food; a spirited history; and a creative arts community. More than 40 per cent of the island is protected as World Heritage Area, national parks and reserves. And because Tasmania is so compact it is easy to walk through an ancient alpine meadow in the morning and be on a pure white beach in the afternoon. Tasmania’s population of less than 500,000 supports a world-class symphony orchestra, a festival of island cultures, and a mid-winter festival that celebrates their Antarctic connections. Tasmania is never crowded, and its historic towns and seaside villages are dispersed across an area about the size of Ireland or West Virginia. The average summer temperature is a comfortable 21 degrees Celsius, while winter’s average is a mild 12 degrees Celsius.
