West Australia Northern Territory Queensland New South Wales & The Australian Capital Territory Victoria South Australia Tasmania

Tasmania is Australia's smallest state and the most decentralised and geographically diverse. In fact, although it is about the size of West Virginia, the Republic of Ireland or Hokkaido, Japan, the landscape can change from rainforested valleys and highland lakes to long white beaches within a 90-minute drive. And the climate is maritime and mild.

Hobart - Greater Hobart and its surrounding towns of Richmond to the north-east and Kettering to the south are an intriguing blend of heritage and lifestyle, scenery and vibrant culture. The city is defined by the river and sea. Take a harbour cruise or drive to the summit of Mount Nelson or Mount Wellington and you'll understand our maritime focus - suburbs hug the Derwent River, city buildings cluster around the docks and the estuary broadens into Storm Bay and the distant sea.
