Tasmania is an island state 240 km to the south of the Australian mainland, separated by Bass Strait. The capital is Hobart which has a population of over 515,000 is known for the Salamanca Markets and nearby Mount Wellington.

The first European to see Tasmania was Dutch navigator Abel Tasman in 1642. He named it Diemen’s Land after the Dutch East Indies’ governor. European contact with Tasmania increased after the British arrived at Sydney Cove in 1788 – Van Diemen’s Land was a convenient pit-stop en route to New South Wales. In 1798 Matthew Flinders circumnavigated Van Diemen’s Land, proving it was an island.

Tasmania is widely known for having the cleanest air in the world, and the best scenery and the richest history compared to other states in Australia.
