Tasmania is often described as one of the most scenically beautiful islands on Earth, and justifiably so. While its mountains are not high in the grand tradition of the American Rockies, or the Swiss Alps (the highest point in Tasmania is 1,580 metres, 5,200 feet), Tasmania has incredible vertical perspective – one minute rolling farmland, the next mountain views, the next incredible seascapes. Tasmania offers some of the best cool temperate rainforests in the world, dramatic coastlines, and wild yet accessible scenery in a well preserved environment. Almost 40% of the Island is locked up in National Parks or World Heritage Listed areas.
