Location

Tasmania is an archipelago of more than 300 islands sitting just 150 miles south-east of mainland Australia and is home to approximately 500,000 people. More than 40 percent of the main island is protected as national parks and reserves, and homes some of the world’s rarest animals. Tasmania is the perfect place to get into the great outdoors and explore a new world. Across the island there are a wide range of activities that you can participate ranging from camping and fishing to the more extreme rock climbing and whitewater rafting.

The City of Hobart, nestled under Mt Wellington on the Derwent River, is one of the most beautiful and livable cities in the world. As the second oldest city in Australia the city offers a wonderful blend of built and cultural heritage, environment, a vibrant art and dynamic sporting culture and a low stress lifestyle.
