Cradle MountainTasmania is an Australian island and state. It is located 240 kilometres (150 mi) south of the eastern side of the continent, from which it is separated by Bass Strait. The state includes the island of Tasmania and the surrounding islands. The state has a population of 500,000, of whom almost half reside in the greater Hobart precinct.

Tasmania is promoted as the natural state and the "island of inspiration" owing to its large and relatively unspoiled natural environment. Almost 37% of Tasmania lies in reserves, national parks and World Heritage Sites.

Located south of mainland Australia is Tasmania, one of the world's most picturesque islands. Rugged mountains, rolling pastures, dense ancient forest and pristine white beaches provide the setting for a holiday that can be as busy or relaxed as you like.

Tasmania's wilderness is surprisingly accessible. An hour's drive from the capital, Hobart, or the second city, Launceston, and visitors can be in native forest or a national park. That's the beauty of this island, amazing diversity in a compact space.Port Arthur Penal Colony

Port Arthur Historic Site is located 100 km south of Hobart and is one of Australia's most significant historic sites. Port Arthur offers a combination of convict history, spectacular scenery and magnificent waterways.
