Separated from Australia by the Bass Strait, Tasmania long ago seceded—not politically, but geologically—from the island continent. More than a third of Tasmania is a savage, beautiful network of national parks and Tasmanian Wilderness World Heritage Area, a refuge and habitat for rare plants and animals. Its European heritage dates to the early 1800s, while Tasmanian Aborigines first arrived 40,000 years ago. On this two-week completely customizable Tasmania tour, experienced guides share passionate stories about the island and its sometimes tumultuous history, both natural and human.
