Links / Verwijzingen 

Adem die lucht in of vergeet de natuur en doe je tegoed aan de wijn van een succesvolle wijngaard; gooi een lijntje uit en wacht tot de vissen toehappen; wandel op je gemak door landerige laantjes en snuffel rond in antiekwinkeltjes. Of jaag het tempo op en ga raften, bush-wandelen, pak de kano, ga kayaken, paardrijden, klimmen in de bergen, game fishing of maak een tocht met een PC-Hooft-tractor, maar dan in gebieden waar ie echt voor gemaakt is.

Travel eastwards to an area of perfect beaches and turquoise sea to marvel at Wineglass Bay and the Bay of Fires. And visit Cradle Mountain , which rises dramatically above pristine Dove Lake. Take the challenge of the five-day Overland Track, or do it the easy way with a scenic flight into the south-west World Heritage Area, the Tasmanian Wilderness, to see a landscape untouched by time.

 Hobart  -  Hobart City
The City of Hobart nestles between majestic Mt Wellington and the Derwent Estuary on one of the world's great deepwater ports around Sullivans Cove, and destination for one of the world's toughest blue water classics, the Sydney to Hobart Yacht Race.
The Hobart waterfront is an exciting environment, a working port, top class accommodation and restaurants, world famous Salamanca Place with its Georgian architecture, and the southernmost port of call for many overseas cruise liners.
Hundreds of thousands of tourists visit Hobart annually; many take day tours to such sought after areas as Wine Glass Bay at Freycinet on Tasmania's East Coast, Port Arthur and the world's best wild brown trout fishery in the Central Highlands.
A rich maritime history, Hobart is also the Gateway to Antarctica and homeport for Australia's only icebreaker, Aurora Australis.

 Burnie  -  Burnie City Council
With sand and surf almost lapping at the door, Burnie's central business and shopping district provides a thoroughfare to the beachside boardwalk and to a 17-kilometre walking trail that skirts the city. In about the time it takes to enjoy a cappuccino you can be working it off along the beautiful pathways of Burnie Park through native rainforest to a dramatic waterfall.
Or (if you're lucky) you can catch a glimpse of platypus just a few minutes drive east of the city at Fernglade, a tranquil retreat for picnicking or simply meandering along the banks of the Emu River.
 Colesbay  -  On the north edge of the Freycinet National Park
A sheltered inlet with fishing boats moored in the deep blue water, all set against the striking backdrop of The Hazards, three pink granite peaks - Amos, Dove and Mayson - rising straight from the sea.
 Derwent Valley and Central Highlands - zie Tasmania South [ Rivers Run ]
 Devonport  -  City Council
 Devonport, Cradle Mountain & Great Western Tiers
This is a creative region - Deloraine holds the southern hemisphere's largest working craft fair. In Westbury, Deloraine and Latrobe there are well-preserved reminders of earlier days. In the antique shops you can search out treasures - the glow of cedar, the patterning of birds-eye Huon pine or the shine of silver. Latrobe's Axeman's Hall of Fame and Timberworks, celebrates the timber industry heritage, while on the land, farms harvest the bounty of rich soils. This is a land of milk and honey .and of sweet berries and fresh vegetables, grass-fed beef and superb farm cheeses.
 Flinders Island  -  Flinders Island Online
Flinders Island is the main island of the Furneaux Islands, a group of 52 islands that stretch across Bass Strait between Tasmania and Australia. These remarkable "mountains in the sea" offer you the holiday experience of a lifetime. Here you can get away from it all in an inspiring world of sparkling beaches, rugged ranges, abundant wildlife and flora, and clear sapphire waters. With a pleasant climate throughout the year and activities from boating to climbing to exploring our historic sites, Flinders Island has much to offer.
 Freycinet & the east coast
Place names tell the story of the region's heritage. Dutch navigator Abel Tasman mapped Schouten and Maria; Frenchman Nicolas Baudin charted Freycinet; nostalgic Welsh settlers named the town of Swansea; Triabunna and Wielangta remember thousands of years of Aboriginal presence. Islands float on the horizon - across Mercury Passage, Maria beckons - it 's an island rich in history, with beaches, cliffs and mountains to explore.
 Georgetown  -  City of Georgetown  -  oudste stad van AustraliŽ
Situated at the mouth of the Tamar River and bordering Bass Strait, George Town offers residents and visitors the opportunity to combine the best of gourmet food , the best living examples of European settlement, the best scenery, culture and unique Australian wildlife all within 50 minutes drive of a major airport.
 Heritage Highway
 Hobart Region
South of Hobart is picturesque channel, orchard and island country. The D'Entrecasteaux Channel region and the Huon Valley form Tasmania's premier fruit-growing district, which once exported millions of apples to England; since the UK joined the European Community, however, two-thirds of the apple orchards have been abandoned. The region is also heavily forested, and around Geeveston magnificent forests are still logged. Hartz Mountains National Park and the Picton River are easily accessible to the west of Geeveston. 
As you head down the coast, caves, thermal springs and an operational railway are all accessible en route to Cocle Creek, the southernmost point you can drive to in Australia, with foot access along a track into the South West National Park. Offshore, across the D'Entrecasteaux Channel, Bruny Island – Truganini's birthplace – has deserted beaches and coastal bushwalks. To the north, you can head inland to New Norfolk and on to Mount Field National Park, while to the east lies historic Richmond, and, on the Tasman Peninsula, the old penal settlement at Port Arthur.
 Huon, Channel, Bruny Island
The Huon Trail begins south of Hobart, then leads you through the Huon Valley, D'Entrecasteaux Channel and Bruny Island
 King island  -  King Island Council  -  Toerisme  -  King Island Tourism
At the Western Entrance to Bass Strait lies a idyllic place known as King Island. An island both rich in history, with shipwrecks, lighthouses and jagged reefs, bountiful with long stretching sandy white beaches and lush green pasture.
 Lounceston  -  Launceston City Council  -  Port of Lounceston
Launceston is a city of elegant architecture and award-winning restaurants, while the lush Tamar Valley [ Valley of the Senses ] is Tasmania's premier wine-growing region.
The Tamar has a rich heritage - the historic buildings of Beaconsfield recall the boom days of gold mining, while just beyond George Town, at Low Head, Australia's oldest continuously operating pilot station still guides ships into the river. Today, perhaps the Tamar Valley's brightest gold is a swirl of delicious chardonnay, while some of tomorrow's rich heritage rests in cellars, as precious bottles of pinot and cabernet age gracefully.
 St Helens  -  largest town east coast of Tasmania, centred around the fishing industry.
Good beaches are located near to St. Helens, and there are several surf beaches along the coast. East of the town on the southern short of Georges Bay is the St. Helens Point State Reserve, where short walks are rewarded by spectacular coastal scenery. The Bay of Fires Coastal Reserve to the north of the town has similar natural beauty. North of St. Helens is Mount William National Park, featuring a 'Forester Kangaroo drive'
 St Helens & the north east
 Stanley & the north west
 Strahan & the west coast
Travel to Strahan in the far west of Tasmania where trees that were saplings hundreds of years ago still grow strong and tall.
 Tasman Peninsula & the south east - where past and present mingle
Here and beyond are protected anchorages and a spectacular coastline of towering sea cliffs, turquoise ocean and white sand. These images, captured in coverage of past Sydney to Hobart races, have been the inspiration for countless Tasmanian cruises.
Along the Peninsula, you can discover fine heritage buildings and admire the bold swirls of glaze on contemporary pottery. You'll sample the region's superb cool-climate wines, and savour some of the local specialties - octopus, oysters, quail and venison. You may also encounter some of the local inhabitants - playful dolphins; our unique Tasmanian devil; or a majestic sea eagle, soaring from cliffs in the Tasman National Park.

 Bruny Island  -  Bruny Island Charters
Bruny Island is an island of surprises - gentle countryside and wild coastlines, quiet beaches and roaring surf, lighthouses, farmhouses, and a rich heritage of sealers, whalers and explorers.

Geschiedenis van TasmaniŽ

Blauw vierkanrje - illu Geschiedenis van TamaniŽ  -  Wikipedia
The first reported sighting of Tasmania by a European was on November 24th 1642 by the Dutch explorer Abel Tasman who named the island Anthoonij van Diemenslandt, after his sponsor, the Govenor of the Dutch East Indies. The name was later shortened to Van Diemens Land by the British. Captain James Cook also sighted the island in 1777, and numerous other European seafarers made landfalls, adding a colourful array to the names of topographical features.
