Tasmania, an isolated island state off Australia's south coast, in olden days was known as Van Diemen's Land. It's known for its vast, rugged wilderness areas, largely protected within parks & reserves. On the western coast lies the fishing village of Strahan where if you are lucky enough you can experience a Gordon River Cruise & venture through Hells Gate. The interior of the Island is well known for Cradle Mountain National Park & it's many limestone caves. On the Tasman Peninsula, the 19th century Port Arthur Penal Settlement is now an open-air museum. In Hobart, the port capital, Salamanca Place's Georgian warehouses now house galleries & boutiques. It's Museum of Old & New Art has a contemporary edge. At the base of the island are Hastings Caves the only dolomite cave in Australia & hot thermal springs.
