Tasmania is a remote and wild island state of Australia and is approximately 68,000 square kilometres. It has an amazing diversity of habitat and fauna including iconic species such as the Tasmanian devil, Eastern Quoll as well as 12 endemic bird species. With 16 different bio-regions, 336 off shore islands and up to 3.5 metres of rainfall, the west coast is covered by the largest expanse of the temperate rain-forest left on the planet. Plant and animal species such as the Deciduous Beech date back over 200 million years and link Australia with other continents into the large super continent Gondwanaland. 25% of the Island is protected and it has 11 world heritage areas and only 500,000 human residents it is a unique, remote and wild place!
