Tasmania East Coast

Australia has six states and two terrtories. The southernmost is Tasmania, an island state about the size of Switzerland, Ireland or the U.S. state of Maine. It’s located 240 kilometres (150 mi) south of the mailand, Most of the urban and social life is along the east coast, with smaller towns along the north coast. The heartland is mostly wilderness. The roads are good and lead to many carming towns and villages with good food and modest hotels. Tasmania is promoted as the natural state and the "island of inspiration" owing to its large and relatively unspoiled natural environment. Almost 37% of Tasmania lies in reserves, national parks and World Heritage Sites.
