Tasmania, or lutruwita by its palawa (Tasmanian Aboriginal) name, is a small island with a long history.
It’s one of the few places on Earth with landscapes unchanged from the time of the ancient Gondwana supercontinent. It’s also a place of unique biodiversity, human culture that dates back 2000 generations, and some of Australia's best-preserved colonial history.
