Tasmania's Island Heritage

Tasmania’s Island Heritage National Landscape is a pristinely beautiful yet accessible wilderness of dramatic coastlines, thick forests and snow-capped mountains. Separated from the Australian mainland during the last Ice Age, for nearly 10,000 years the island has evolved in splendid isolation, creating a living museum of some of the world’s oldest and rarest plants and animals. The untamed beauty of Tasmania’s Island Heritage is so precious it meets more World Heritage criteria than anywhere else on the planet. Here, you can find countless world-class nature and adventure experiences and be captivated by the Aboriginal heritage and Australia’s early convict and settler history.
