For most Australians Tasmania is known as a wilderness holiday destination, hiking and outdoor activities in the mountains are the most common images which come to mind.
It is also considered a very remote place, a place where development is limited and where it is still possible to roam around the bush without mobile phone reception and without running into hordes of tourists.
It's known as one of the last places on earth to contain vast tracts of wilderness, which protects countless numbers of plants and animals, and for most Australians, the protection of this wilderness is a passionate subject and one which has caused many demonstrations and protests in an effort to stop the building of dams or the logging of forests.
Tassie is many things, but is all of the above, if you yearn to escape society for a few days then Tassie is perfect, as one past Passenger on one of our Adventure Tours said: "It's the perfect way to get away from this crazy society and into nature."

here's a summary:
"Tasmania (abbreviated as Tas) is an island state 240 kilometres (150 mi) to the south of the Australian continent, separated by the Bass Strait. The state includes the island of Tasmania, the 26th largest island in the world, and the surrounding 334 islands. The state has a population of 507,626 (as of June 2010), of whom almost half reside in the greater Hobart precinct. Tasmania's area is 68,401 square kilometres (26,410 sq mi), of which the main island covers 62,409 square kilometres (24,096 sq mi).
Tasmania is promoted as the natural state, the "Island of Inspiration", and A World Apart, Not A World Away owing to its large and relatively unspoiled natural environment. Almost 37% of Tasmania lies in reserves, national parks and World Heritage Sites. The island is 364 kilometres (226 mi) long from its northernmost to its southernmost points, and 306 kilometres (190 mi) from west to east."
