41° South and bordered by the Indian Ocean, Bass Strait and the Tasman Sea, Tasmania shares this latitude with very few other places in the world. The South Island of New Zealand, Chile, and Argentina. The winds that buffet the west coast of Tasmania last crossed land in Argentina more than 11,000 kilometres away. In the northern hemisphere, these temperate zones are far more populated and we share a similar climate to California, the Mediterranean and the French Riviera despite the general perception that we enjoy temperatures just one or two degrees above Antarctica.
Tasmania is a wonderful place with an amazing array of different microclimates and environments. It has ancient rainforests, unique sea cliffs, mighty rivers and incredibly fertile farming areas. It boasts modern cities - which also happen to be the second and third oldest cities in the nation - as well as quaint towns and idyllic villages.
Most of all, it has a people who are friendly, innovative, artistic and fiercely proud of being Tasmanian.
This book, our 10th, brings together just some of the amazing array of factors that make Tasmania such a unique place. It mixes adventure tourism and stunning scenery with fine dining and great wines and offers a glimpse into a world where there is still time to savour the really good things in life.
